Most ben­e­fi­cial or­gan­isms in the soil are aer­o­bic; most detri­men­tal or­gan­isms in the soil are anaer­o­bic. Good aer­a­tion will in­hibit the dam­ag­ing or­gan­isms and en­cour­age the ben­e­fi­cial ones. This will be a health­ier soil which will min­er­alise and re­cy­cle nu­tri­ents more ef­fec­tively and pro­vide a more sus­tain­able sys­tem.

Healthy soil is the best and cheap­est way to pro­duce healthy plants. This won’t hap­pen with toxic in­puts. Soils need ad­e­quate air.

So to im­prove your soil and save on costly and of­ten dam­ag­ing in­puts, the FIX Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tor Plough could well be the an­swer!
