In order to maximize your yield potential, you must keep the proper air-water-soil mixture throughout your soil profile. It’s simple—plants can grow larger and more efficiently with effective root penetration into properly wetted soil with active soil microorganisms. A deficient air-water-soil ratio – soil that is too wet, too dry, or too compact – is detrimental to plant growth, unfavorable to microbial activity, and inefficient for practices like chemigation. Poor air-water-soil management means decreased yield, increased costs and a lower bottom line.
Pervaide® is the answer! Pervaide®is a tool that helps maintain a proper air-water-soil ratio while simultaneously stimulating soil microbial populations. When used to complement proper soil management practices, Pervaide® gives you the potential for the best bottom line you have ever seen!
Pervaide® first acts by lowering the surface tension of water, enabling drainage, infiltration, and movement of water and air through the soil profile; including into otherwise inaccessible micropore space. Decreased surface tension and better water movement means crops will be able to get the water it needs, plant nutrients will be carried by water to the plant, and chemicals will get into the soil rather than running off the field.
The second way Pervaide® works is biological. A healthy, active microbial population is essential for good soil health and productivity. Locked up micropores, and dry or over saturated soils reduce microbial activity, leading to constricted root growth and decreased nutrient availability. By helping infiltration and drainage while facilitating water and air movement into micropores, Pervaide® helps balance the air-water-soil ratio, increasing microbial activity and populations for better root growth and nutrient availability. This means you have a greater potential for higher quality crops.
Pervaide® provides more benefits than typical soil penetrants because it also includes enzymes, vitamins, and cofactors necessary for microbial metabolism. Pervaide® simultaneously helps increase microbial metabolism while providing access to oxygen and water, combatting three major reasons for an unhealthy, inactive microbial population. Furthermore, it is estimated that most microbial activity occurs in the top 6 inches of the soil profile, however, plant roots can reach depths of up to 4 feet. The application of Pervaide® allows the movement of water, enzymes, vitamins, cofactors and dissolved oxygen deep into the soil profile, helping the health and activity of the entire microbial population your plant roots reach.
By decreasing the surface tension of water and stimulating soil microorganisms Pervaide® provides the answer to poor air-water-soil ratios at a price-point that is lower than what it would normally cost to get these same benefits from multiple products. When you use Pervaide® you can increase the efficiency of your operation, and in the end, put more money in your pocket.
- Reduces surface tension of water allowing water to penetrate into the soil
- Allows air and water into smaller pore spaces
- Increases nutrient availability
- Increased microbial activity throughout the soil profile where rooting occurs
- Reduces fertilizer loss
- Decreases runoff, reducing harmful impact to the environment
- Breakdown of large soil particles from microbial organic acid production
- Flocculation, or binding, of small soil particles by sticky sugars from active microorganisms
- Overall better soil structure
