Traditional hand-dug well at Regen-360’s BioSoil Production Center
Strict Temperature and BioSoil Moisture monitoring of the BioSoil piles is necessary throughout the production period to ensure that the pile doesn’t spontaneously combust resulting in a pile, that all pathogenic organisms and volunteer seeds are destroyed, and that the optimal mix of diverse and beneficial microorganisms are produced in sufficient numbers to establish a functional and cycling Soil Food Web in farmer’s fields.
Small quantities of native and indigenous microorganisms like the fungal mycelia above are carefully harvested from nearby forests following rains to ensure that local diversity is included in Regen-360’s BioSoil piles. This helps ensure fungal connections between cash crops and indigenous plants to that nutrients can be exchanged, and a greater variety of diseases can be controlled.
Each BioSoil pile is appropriately labeled and frequently updated with recent microscopic analysis results for quick reference to enable the collection of the right mix of soil biology for different cash crops and requirements of individual farmer fields.
Regen-360’s BioSoil hub that will serve 5 local ethnic communities, nearby communities, and smallholder farms as well as commercial farms in the area. Each greenhouse will hold approximately 60 piles (120 tons).
Beneficial fungi growing in Regen-360’s BioSoil pile. Fungi are a key component of a functional Soil Food Web and critical for the success of Regenerative Agriculture and Grazing on farms, ranches, and pastoral lands. Tillage and chemical agriculture destroys these fungi and prevents the Soil Food Web from functioning.
