Agriton Home & Garden products in the garden make artificial fertilisers and crop protection agents almost superfluous.
Our applications result in healthier plants, more beautiful flowers and better harvests with reduced costs.
Strong crops only grow in a strong soil. With our approach, we can advise you in how to create more energy for your garden.A soil with a good structure that is filled with nutrients, has a rich and active soil life and where diseases have less chance to develop.
Agriton is a forerunner with a method for natural and sustainable gardening.
We only work with effective and natural products that fit into our vision of a future-proof soil fertility. The Agriton system improves soil fertility and structure in sand, clay and peat soils.
Agriton Home & Garden offer a wonderful range of 100% Natural, Chemical Free, Sustainable and Microbial focused products for those looking to be friendlier to our environment.
Understanding your soil makes it easy to garden organically. To get the most from the soil it is useful to look at the chemical, physical and biological processes taking place. A balance between these processes is essential to achieve optimal results. Healthy blooms and strong plant growth relies on a balanced fertile soil, where nutrients are readily available.
Chemical processes in the soil:
Macro elements: Mineral nitrogen (N-mineral) organic nitrogen (N-organic), phosphorus (P) potash (K), sulphur (S), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), and sodium (Na).
Spore elements: Manganese (Mn), boron (B), silicon (Si), zinc (Zn), iodine (I) molybden(M) copper (Cu), selenium (Se), Iron (Fe), cobalt (Co).
pH: The pH level in the soil (acidity) depends on the soil type. In the box below you will see guidelines for the preferred pH in the soil.
Physical aspects of the soil:
Soil Types: Sandy, silty, loamy, clay, peaty & chalky soil.
Structure: This varies according to the soil type and amount of organic matter in the soil.
Density: The density is a characteristic which determines the physical aspect of the soil.
Water Retention: Depends on the soil type and the humus layer. A soil lacking in humus cannot store water. The Garden Box will help improve soil structure after structural decay which results in lack of humus
Biological aspects of the soil:
The soil contains a whole multitude of microflora and fauna which includes microscopic bacteria, worms, nematodes and fungi which play an important role in nutrient exchange and plant growth.
Strong healthy root formation is enhanced by the ‘’life’’ in the soil. These organisms also defend the soil from disease and help prevent plant disease.
Keeping soil disease at bay with EM microbes
EM acts like a probiotic in the soil. Helping to keep your garden free from pests and disease. more ‘good’ bacteria, means the disease causing bacteria don’t stand a chance of multiplying!
Better biodiversty means increased nitrogen supply available to plants
More phosphorous available through improved rhizosphere activity and the synthesis of growth substances and vitamins which enhance plant growth.
The soils defence against disease, or as we call it, the soil’s immune system, is very similar to that of our own. When given the correct feed and sufficient organic matter, the soils processes are in balance with each other. The use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides can disrupt this balance. Harmful bacteria which cause disease can only multiply when the good bacteria in the soil are diminished. By using Actiferm on the soil, abundant amounts of good bacteria are able to thrive in the soil. This not only has a disease suppressing effect but also has an accumulative effect on the whole garden. This means that the longer EM is used in the garden the better the results will be . Once the microflora have been established in the soil the benefits remain for some time.
