According to a company spokesman, YLAD Living Soils focus on soil health.

They believe it is the primary unifying principle behind their work.

Their every product, every step, is designed to build healthy, life-sustaining soils.

Healthy soils support stronger, resilient plants, produce higher yields, and produce more nutritious food and pasture.

Farmers know the basics of NPK, but YLAD’s blended fertilisers and soil amendments help producers build soils with appropriate levels of a wide range of nutrients, including calcium, sulfur and trace minerals.

Balanced plant nutrition supports healthy, diverse populations of soil microbes.

Microbes draw nutrients into the soil’s food chain, making them stable and available for plant uptake.

This ensures greater nutrient efficiency as more goes to plants and less leaches out.

This is where YLAD’s products Germinate, Germinate Plus and Legume Plus shine.  

They are specially formulated to prevent leaching and locking up of nutrients as well as feed soil microbes.

Scientific research from the Western Sydney University has shown that high levels of actinomycetes in the soil suppress common cropping diseases.  

Encouraging a diverse suite of microbes will help protect crops from common diseases.

”For our growers, building soil health is not an end in itself, it’s a powerful way to build yield,” YLAD Living Soils, Rhonda Daly said.

“And it’s the only way to consistently, sustainably build yield over many years and decades. 

“If we think in terms of a family, the yield gains early on help farmers generate the profits necessary to raise and educate their children.

‘’Long-term soil health improvements mean those children will inherit a farm far more valuable and productive than the one their parents farmed years earlier.

“We’re not selling individual microbes or biological products here.

“Rather, we are creating the circumstances in which beneficial soil life can flourish season after season, year after year.”
