Biological Innoculation – Broadacre
Even the most organic agricultural soils lack bio-diversity due to our cropping systems, tillage techniques and reduced or lack of fertilizing.
You and I understand that agriculture and the accompanying (and necessary) feeding of the soil is not a natural process. Disturbing soils is a necessary evil that even organic farmers have to accept. The results of this agriculture and soil disturbance can be — should be — mitigated, reduced or even repaid when preparing for the next planting/harvest cycle by using thoughtful, carbon-based, biologically rich, nutrient-dense, regenerative soil rebuilders from Purple Cow Organics.
The products in our Full-Cycle Ag System are customized and formulated specifically for your soil, your crop and the specific part of the cycle you want to address.
Adding Purple Cow products at the very genesis of seed germination and growth provides beneficial biology, secondary metabolites, humic substance and chemical signature that all assist the plant in overcoming the disruptive process of pre-plant tillage/soil disturbance. This aids germinating plants at a very delicate stage of development and helps ensure strong, healthy, nutrient-dense crops when your plants mature.

In this critical stage of the farming cycle, the right product mix is imperative to the best harvest outcomes. The Purple Cow Organics Full-Cycle Ag System incorporates crop-specific programs that contain just the right mix of product for your crop at this stage, increasing the effectiveness of fertilization. As one example, regularly scheduled applications of CX-1 (a liquid biological amendment) alongside a liquid fertilizer helps support and add microbes to your soil that process the fertilizer into forms that are available to your plants, dramatically enhancing the performance of the fertilizer. This results in a vastly improved yield, improved performance of soil, and possible reduction of fertilizers (and the costs of those fertilizers).
Once again, we urge you to talk to us about your needs. No two sections of soil are the same, no two crops are the same and no two years are the same. We will partner with you to get the most out of your soil, and this cycle is a broad system for doing so.
Probably the key time to work with your soil is after harvest. At this stage of the cycle, the Purple Cow Organics Full-Cycle Ag Program is focused on preparing your soil for the particular crop you’ll be planting in spring.
The application of Purple Cow Organic Classic compost or spraying of Purple Cow CX-1 (liquid) post harvest delivers biology (bacteria & fungi) that accelerates the breakdown of crop residue, improving the return of nutrients to your soil. Normally, when plant residue breaks down, a lot of the nutrients are oxidized and lost to the atmosphere, literally disappearing into thin air. Purple Cow products help capture those nutrients and return them to your soil. And that’s on top of Purple Cow Products’ first mission, increasing the liberation of nutrients bound in your soil.
When nutrients are liberated from the soil and nutrients are captured from crop residue, your need for fertilizer is reduced, as is the cost. Less fertilizer is more environmentally responsible, as well.
Purple Cow Organic’s crop-specific programs view every stage of the cycle as important, but post-harvest will probably have the most effect on the health of your soil and, therefore, next season’s yield.
