elementC6, Inc. has taken the knowledge and proven effectiveness of a 2,000 year old practice that was used in the Amazon, of using charcoal as a soil amendment to improve the fertility of soils. The native Indians of the region would create charcoal and incorporate it in small plots of land, Biochar or Terra Preta, as it is known in this area of Brazil, remains highly fertile until today, even with little or no application of fertilizers. And this is in a region of the world known for its highly infertile soils.
By combining this 2,000 year old practice with modern scientific advancements, we have developed ec6 Grow a specially formulated, pH Balanced, Low EC, non-toxic and inert carbon substrate with diverse porosity that builds healthier, more productive soil by improving Water and Nutrient Retention. Boosts Plant Growth, Increases Moisture Retention ,Locks in Soil Nutrients, Increases Microbial Life. and provides an unprecedented refuge and habitat for essential microbes and Mycorrhizae Fungi. These are all essential to root growth, as well as nutrient and water processing functions helping ensure overall plant health, offering larger, stronger more disease resistance plants, that can offer percentage gains in overall fruit production ranging from 10% to 100%. New age soil amendment, with age old methodologies.
