The basalt and its influence on sustainable agriculture

The basalt, an millenary volcanic rock, is emerging as a key ally in the practice of a more sustainable and conscious agriculture of the environment. This material, from the depths of the land mantle, has captured the attention of innovative farmers for its notable effects on the microfauna of the soil and its contribution to paramagnetism, a phenomenon that improves the vitality of the underground ecosystem.

THE BASALT: Microbial Nutrition Source Rich in trace elements, the basalt offers a feast of essential nutrients for soil microorganisms. One of these nutrients, cobalt, is essential for the growth and development of microfauna. In addition, the silica present in the basalt provides a double protection for plants: it increases its resistance against bioagrisors and improves its ability to withstand drought conditions.

Paramagnetism: the secret for a living ground The presence of paramagnetic particles in the basalt directly affects the biological activity of the soil. The natural paramagnetism of a soil is indicative of its ability to sustain life; The greater the paramagnetic reading, the more dynamic the microfauna is. This effect translates into greater water retention and, therefore, improved fertility, which leads to more productive crops.

The measurement of paramagnetism Modern technology allows us to measure this phenomenon through tools such as the Phil Callahan Soil Affe (PCSM), which measures the mobility of the elements in the soil. This ability to move elements is essential for microorganisms to feed and flourish.

Basalt conscious application The incorporation of basalt to the ground must be a meditated process, taking into account both the soil paramagnetism and the mineral load of the rock. Experts suggest moderate applications that fit the magnetic profile of the soil. In addition, soil temperature should be considered to maximize the activation of microbial life.

Patience and long -term vision The transformation that the basalt teaches to the ground is not instantaneous. Approximately seven to ten years are needed to observe significant changes. Therefore, the Basalto application is an investment in the future of the Earth, where patience and commitment to sustainable practices will bear their long -term fruits.

In conclusion, the basalt is not just a rock; It is a catalyst for the revitalization of the Earth. Its use in agriculture represents a holistic approach that honors the complexity of natural systems and points to a future where sustainability is not an option, but an imperative need.
