Transforming Agriculture With a Life Focused Approach
Soil degradation is one of the biggest threats to farm productivity. We help farmers rebuild and protect the life in their soils to yield a healthy and productive farm for today and future generations.
Soil Degradation Hurts More Than Just the Crops,
It Hurts the Farm
Detect the Symptoms of Soil Degradation
The inability of soil to maintain integral structure because of low or imbalanced soil life, leading to movement of the topsoil in water.
Soil structure collapsed upon itself, limiting air and water movement into the root zone, often caused by lack of soil microbiology.
Low H2O Holding Capacity
Low organic matter and poor microbial activity leading to inability of the soil to maintain moisture levels necessary for plant support.
Specifically as related to microbiology, the natural nutrient cycle is ineffective at feeding plants due to low or imbalance microbial activity.
Weeds, Insects, & Diseases
Stressed plants attract high levels of insect pests and disease while weeds thrive due to an imbalanced nutrient cycle and soil compaction.
Bringing Your Soil to Life
A life-focused approach reverses soil degradation caused by conventional agricultural practices. Introducing living components back into the soil helps maintain and optimize soil health, improving farmers’ livelihoods and the ecosystem of the farm.
Benefits of Healthy Soil
Improved Water Use
Living soils increase drainage and water holding capacity by building better soil structure. This reduces runoff and soil erosion, and improves drought resistance.
Efficient Nutrient Cycling
Living soils cycle nutrients through biological processes. As bacteria and fungi break down minerals into forms that the plant can use, fertilizer needs are reduced.
The need for chemicals is decreased, and nutrient availability is increased. There is less disease and water consumption, which means less time spent in the fields.
Reduced Management Costs
As the soil becomes healthier, the microbiology begins to thrive, and the whole system improves. All these factors translate into savings for the farm, and more time with your family.
Know Your Soil Life
It all starts with learning and understanding the role soil microbiology has in plant health.
Test Your Soil Life
Take the guesswork out and
know what your soil needs for your crop to thrive.
Bring Your Soil to Life
From the lab results, boost your soil's microbiology through Soil ProVide® or Soil ReVive®.
Helping Farmers Since 2004
From Our Family to Yours
For over a decade our lab has provided detailed soil biology profiles for farmers and land managers across multiple industries. Using these profiles we have created custom products to help revitalize tired, worn out soils and to boost the effectiveness of composts and teas. Utilize our expertise to help unlock the productivity in your soil!

Fruits of Their Labor: A Case Study On
Regenerating the Dairy
Jack Perrin has been milking cows in the Willamette Valley longer than most of us have been doing anything. Perrin Dairy, established in 1976, transitioned to organic production in 2002. Jack also produces corn silage for the animals.

Regenerate with Soil ProVide® and Soil ReVive®
Soil ProVide® – Inoculum
Soil ProVide® is a liquid that contains soil microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. These organisms support plant health as they decompose organic matter, cycle nutrients, and enhance soil structure.
