Mimicking Mother Nature https://www.pnfertilizers.com/mimicking-mother-nature/ Thu, 14 Dec 2017 22:24:54 +0000 https://www.pnfertilizers.com/?p=8301 Guardian Soil Solutions Distributes Sustainable Agriculture Products from Performance Nutrition in Florida
by Alyssa Sanchez

In the winter strawberry capital of the world, farmers in Plant City, Florida, trade conventional farming methods for more organic, holistic practices. Guardian Soil Solutions, a nutrition farming consultation company based in Plant City, helps farmers return to farming basics and in turn, achieve healthier crops, higher yields and optimal soil health.

Citrus grove in Polk County, Florida.

After attending college and serving in the Marine Corps, Josh Young, owner of Guardian Soil Solutions, joined his family’s agriculture chemical company where he consulted with and sold chemicals to Plant City farmers. He also farmed himself, and became proficient in growing many crops.

Young said he always felt there was a different way to do things, a way to farm without the use of harsh chemicals. After many stages of trial and error, Young and his family started one of the first organic strawberry farms in Plant City.

“When we grew organics we were told what not to do, but there was no one guiding you on what to do and how to grow this organic, natural way,” Young said. “So that’s kind of how Guardian Soil Solutions was born.”

At a conference in Las Vegas, Young met Graeme Sait, a renowned leader in sustainable agriculture. Sait introduced Young to the idea of nutrition farming, a sustainable approach to soil and plant management. Through the nutrition farming methods, Young’s program replenishes soil nutrients, puts organic matter back into the soil and helps improve the overall health of the soil.

“Healthy soil equals plant, animal and human health,” Young said.

Inspired by and armed with this new knowledge, Young shut down his chemical company and started his nutrition farming consultation company, Guardian Soil Solutions, to teach farmers to grow crops without the use of harsh chemicals.

Young, with his partner Justin Taggart, is excited to work with Performance Nutrition as a distributor of environmentally sustainable soil amendments, crop protection and fertilizer products in Florida. Becoming a distributor of Performance Nutrition products allows Young to further grow the Guardian Soil Solutions mission to help the American farmer and improve soil health. Both companies share similar goals, to help farmers achieve healthy plants, productive soil and high yields.

“Everything they do lines up with what we are doing,” Taggart said. “Taking care of soil.”

Young said he is most excited to introduce Nutrol, NutriSmart-B, Prudent 44 and Prudent RX to farmers in Florida.

Young recommends Prudent 44, a concentrated phosphite fertilizer, to help control phytophthora, a citrus disease. For powdery mildew disease, Young said Nutrol, a bio-pesticide and tank buffer, serves as a strong alternative to a traditional fungicide. Prudent RX, a micronutrient solution formulated with amino acids and other Performance Nutrition products, is used to correct mineral deficiencies caused by environmental stress. NutriSmart-B is an OMRI listed, organic soil inoculant that fixes nitrogen from the atmosphere, unlocks P, K and Si from the soil and helps make micronutrients more available to the plant.

“What Performance Nutrition is offering for me are some non-toxic ways to control pest problems you might encounter throughout the season,” Young said.

In just the past six months, Guardian Soil Solutions has consulted with nearly two dozen farmers working with approximately 1,000 acres of crops including strawberries, citrus, turf and vegetables.

“So far I have had really good success. We are six weeks into the season and have not had to use a toxic fungicide yet, where everyone else has dumped on three or four chemical applications, and I feel good about my growth, root development, flower development looks nice. It’s a journey,” Young said.

While his main customers grow citrus, strawberries and other row crops, with the help of his contacts at Performance Nutrition, Young also has plans to expand into turfgrass consulting.

Though the partnership between Guardian Soil Solutions and Performance Nutrition is recent, Young has had a relationship with  Don Pucillo, President of Performance Nutrition, and John Flynn, Southeast Territory Manager, for a few years now.

“Josh is passionate about the work he does and his knowledge about Florida agriculture will help build strong relationships with the growers,” Pucillo said. “We are excited to work with Guardian Soil Solutions because we share the same beliefs about healthy soil and healthy crops. It’s going to be a good partnership. ”

Young said, “Our program’s ultimate goal is to mimic mother nature.”

May 18, 2017, Hazlet, NJ: Performance Nutrition joined with volunteers from Project EverGreen to dedicate the newly revitalized Hazlet Youth Athletic League Steven B. Paterson Memorial Football Field after extensive renovation. This ribbon-cutting took place after the application of NutriSmart products, that helped refresh the field for the community’s use.

Steven B Paterson Memorial Field Before and After NutriSmart

With support from Hazletbased Performance Nutrition and Natural Green Lawn Care in Bridgewater, this natural grass playing field was extensively renovated last fall, and continuing into this spring. The field renovation improved the health and vigor of the grass, and created a greener, safer playing surface for nearly 1,500 children and parents in the HYAL and spring flag football league and Hazlet Township community.

The field was dedicated with a brief ceremony and remarks from key players in the nearly $25,000 plus pro bono, professional  landscaping renovation project that was completed at no charge to HYAL or Hazlet township, under coordination by Project EverGreen, a national non-profit.

When applied with its companion product, KaPre® Activ8 Fertilizer Additive, it delivers the same powerful microbes and proprietary food sources as the liquid product. KaPre® Activ8 solution contains the same broth found in the original KaPre RemeD8; however, this new formulation contains a higher concentration of organic nutrients and microbial food sources plus Pennamin amino acids.
KaPre® RemeD8-WSP will be packaged in water-soluble packets that dissolve in water in seconds, while KaPre Activ8 will be packaged in 2.5 gallons.  The applicator simply uses one 2.5 gallon jug of KaPre Activ8 for each 8 ounce packet of KaPre RemeD8-WSP. The microbes become active when added to the tank along with the recommended rate of KaPre® Activ8, resulting in consistent, reliable microbial populations for measurable results.About Performance NutritionLidoChem, Inc.’s Performance Nutrition Division was established in 1999 to develop new “greener” products and technologies for the agricultural and turf markets.

“When I added Argosy-RF to my glyphosate spray, I got  better control of some of my hard to kill weeds. I was also able to kill some of the glyphosate-resistant weeds, like giant ragweed and Marestail, that had plagued my fields. I noticed that, in many cases  where the herbicide didn’t kill the glyphosate-resistant weeds, it was able to severely stunt or stop their growth and the weeds did not go to seed! The best results were achieved when the weeds were sprayed before they got over 4 to 5 inches tall.  It also worked on larger weeds, however, but we had to increase the rate of the Argosy-RF.

HAZLET — Project EverGreen, a nonprofit organization, has launched its Healthy Turf Healthy Kids initiative in order to benefit members of the community.

The initiative has been underway since Oct. 28 at Steven Patterson Memorial Field.

The field in Hazlet was re-opened in 2016 for the first time in 10 years, but extremely hot weather during summer mixed with periods of rainfall left the field dead and messy.

With the help of LidoChem Inc. and Natural Green Lawn Care, $20,000 in supplies and labor have been donated to improve the 100,000 square feet of playing surfaces. Project EverGreen has donated landscaping renovation to restore and embellish the distressed turf field of the Hazlet Youth Athletic League.

This video we made during the development stage of Z.one T&O 250. While the video used Profile as the granular carrier, after additional tests, we decided to use a natural zeolite as a carrier instead. The video is meant to show the impact of injecting or brushing a granular carrier infused with PN products into aerification holes, followed by regular applications of our Performance Soil Treatment program.Half of a test site field was treated with Performance Soil Treatment, while the other half remained untreated as a control. Here are the results we found during our trial.
