ProGanics Biotic Soil Media
ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) is engineered to provide a balanced formulation of soil-building media that contributes to both rapid and sustained vegetation establishment while complementing performance of hydraulic and rolled erosion control products.
Testing at the Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL) has shown that ProMatrix™ Engineered Fiber Matrix™ (EFM™) applied over ProGanics resulted in 99% erosion control effectiveness with greater germination and growth versus a leading Biotic Soil Amendment applied and tested under the same conditions.
The ProGanics patent-pending, non-toxic formulation has been innovated using time-proven components from the horticultural and erosion control industries. Key ingredients include:
• Renewable Thermally Refined® Bark and Wood Fibers — to provide organic matter, high moisture retention and maximum coverage; phyto-sanitized to eliminate weed seeds and pathogens
• Biochar — derived from pyrolysis of renewable wood sources (heating under high temperatures) — to create stable, porous particles that demonstrate a high Cation Exchange Capacity and a high ability to hold water and nutrients, while providing prime habitat for beneficial bacteria and fungi
• Cross-Linked Polysaccharide Biopolymers — to increase water-holding capacity, viscosity and bond strength of the media matrix
• Proprietary Formulation of Fast-Acting and Sustained Release Soil Building Components Containing Seaweed Extract, Humic Acid and Endomycorrhizae — have been proven under demanding conditions in a wide variety of environments
