ORGANIC FERTILIZING MADE EASY with Biosol Forte
How does Biosol Work?

Biosol promotes the humus formation and soil fertility due to 70% organic substance. Biosol activates the soil life and regenerates the soil with a long lasting effect. Higher humus values, better rooting and vitalization are specific characteristics of the organic fertilizer. The beneficial bacteria and beneficial fungi of the soil release the nutrients in accordance with the demand of the plants. The plants are perfectly nourished and there is little danger of nitrogen leaching. This unique blend of nutrients enables Biosol to stimulate root development, allowing plants of all kinds to fully absorb essential nutrients for longevity and maximum health.

Post Fire Reclamation

FIREOn June 8, 2002, the Coal Seam Fire erupted near Glenwood Springs, CO. The fire destroyed 12,209 acres and had a perimeter of almost 45 miles in length that curved around the city. The estimated property loss was $6.4 million dollars. US Forest Service estimated a fire fighting cost of over $2.3 million, 690 fire fighters and 100 National Guard troops. In August 2002, Dan Sokal, Planning and Environmental Coordinator for the BLM, planned to re-vegetate 500 acres of the burned area that could have an environmental impact on the city and residents of Glenwood Springs. The mission was to treat the crucial acres in five days.

Specifications for Coal Seam Fire Revegetation: All amounts are per acre quantities:

  • 1000 lbs Wood Mulch
  • 400 lbs Biosol All Natural Organic Fertilizer
  • 60 lbs SuperTack Organic Tackifier
  • 50 lbs of seed
  • 800 gallons of the mix was loaded into each of 4 airplanes. Each load covered approximately ½ acre.

 

This mixture & treatment achieved 70% seed germination in one year.

Roadside Revegetation

Revegetation of drastically disturbed sites is often limited by long term Nitrogen (N) availability. Initial plant growth declines as the fertilizer amendments that are typically used become depleted.

 

Traditional approaches to reestablishing vegetation on disturbed sites have included regular maintenance fertilization programs in which mineral fertilizers are applied at regular intervals ranging from 1 to 3 years. A problem with this approach is that it is very difficult to wean reestablishing vegetation from this program. Furthermore, experience is showing that repeated applications of mineral fertilizers actually deplete the soil of its life supporting organic component resulting in a decline in vegetation density.

With environmental quality increasingly being addressed in legislation specific to reclamation/revegetation and landholders/operators being held responsible for reclamation success for long periods of time, industry is actively seeking alternatives to mineral fertilizers. Biosol® is considered to be ecologically superior to mineral fertilizers because of its slow uniform release and low heavy metal values. Biosol® is also deemed more environmentally appropriate for use in watersheds where there is potential to contaminate potable water supplies.

Mine Reclamation

In order for reclamation to be truly successful, the processes of primary production and decomposition must be restored as quickly as possible following a disturbance and must be self-sustaining over the long term. The long term success of any revegetation program truly depends on being able to improve on site growing conditions, i.e., reestablish bio activity within the growing medium, the soil.

BIOSOL 100% NATURAL ORGANIC FERTILIZER

Biosol, also known as dry mycelium, is a by-product from the manufacture of penicillin. Biosol promotes a healthy balance of microbes, insuring the long-term green color and health of your turf and plants. Biosol was developed the same way slow release vitamins were developed for humans. This slow uniform release mimics the natural growth cycle of plants, making nutrients more readily available for root absorption. Biosol has been researched from around the world and is recognized as the “World’s Best Fertilizer”.
