We fix water

CaluSolv’s focus is on improving soil health, but WHEN WE FIX SOIL,WE FIX WATER.

 

Water filtration: CaluSolv’s approach to water purification utilizes sustainable agricultural practices and the promotion of soil health for broader environmental benefits. Healthy soil is a natural filter using several different processes that aid in water purification. The active involvement of microbes in nutrient cycling and organic matter decomposition contributes to the overall well-being of the soil and, consequently, supports clean water initiatives.

 HOW DOES CALUSOLV PROVIDE WATER SECURITY?

CaluSolv contributes to water security by focusing on soil health and sustainable agricultural practices. The connection between soil health and water efficiency, management, and quality is crucial for environmental sustainability.

Groundwater encompasses several different areas of the soil profile. The aeration zone (unsaturated zone) plays a crucial role in water efficiency, quality, and security with its interactions between soil, water, and plant roots. This zone also helps mitigate the two most significant contributors to crop failure: drought and flooding.

Ensuring the proper management and health of the aeration zone is essential for maintaining a sustainable water supply for various purposes, including drinking, irrigation, recreation, and industry.

Below are some of the direct ways CaluSolv provides water security:

ENHANCED WATER INFILTRATION

CONVENTIONAL: Conventional agriculture practices rely heavily on synthetic fertilizers and biocides. These practices focus entirely on crop yields and destroy soil aggregate structure.

REGENERATIVE:  Improving soil health involves enhancing soil structure and organic matter content. Healthy soils with good structure can absorb and store more water, reducing surface runoff. Increased water infiltration helps mitigate water scarcity by recharging groundwater and reducing the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall events.

REDUCED SOIL EROSION

CONVENTIONAL: Conventional agriculture practices often incorporate waterways and riparian areas practices to reduce soil erosion. These practices are good, but they attack the erosion downstream after the erosion has begun. Often, these practices are designed to address the problem based on historical rainfall events such as one-, ten-, or even 100-year rainfall events. This approach is more reactionary than the proactive approach of regenerative agriculture’s rebuilding of soil aggregate structure.

REGENERATIVE: With enhanced soil aggregate structure, soil compaction is significantly reduced. Soil compaction is one of the foundational issues that increase rainwater runoff. As we reduce soil compaction by enhancing the soil’s physical, chemical, and biological properties, we can infiltrate more rainfall effectively and inexpensively, reducing soil erosion.

REDUCED WATER POLLUTION

CONVENTIONAL: Conventional agriculture, which primarily focuses on crops and yields, has delivered a massive amount of chemicals to our water supply. Chemicals include products used on lawns and farm fields to kill weeds and insects and to fertilize plants. When it rains, these chemicals can seep into the ground or run into rivers, lakes, and the ocean. This yield philosophy often means if a little is good, a lot is better. We have pushed higher levels of biocides and synthetic fertilizers to produce more yield and often forget water is the collector of these excess nutrients and toxins.

REGENERATIVE: Aggregate structure increases water and air in the soil profile. Additionally, regenerative practices aid in increasing soil organic matter, which is approximately 58% carbon. This carbon-rich, healthy soil can function and support a more diverse population of organisms. Soil biology combined with carbon can hold pollutants longer and effectively break down these chemicals and excess nutrients that enter the soil and move to groundwater storage.

SOIL WATER RECHARGE

CONVENTIONAL: Groundwater reserves receive replenishment
through rainfall and precipitation that infiltrates the spaces
between soil particles beneath the Earth’s surface. However,
conventional farming practices contribute to soil compaction and
the disruption of soil macro and micro-aggregates. This
degradation in soil structure results in increased runoff of higher
volumes of rainfall and precipitation into lakes, streams, and
rivers, occurring at accelerated rates.

REGENERATIVE: Groundwater serves as a crucial natural
resource for drinking, irrigation, recreation, and industry.
Regenerative farming practices, which focus on enhancing
chemical, biological, and physical soil health, facilitates the
infiltration of precipitation into the ground, allowing it to naturally
enter the groundwater system. In this regenerative system,
groundwater supplies are replenished or recharged by rain and
other forms of precipitation within the natural water cycle.

I have no problem saying that the 200 dollars spent on CaluSolv increased our income by over $2,000 dollars.

We have used CaluSolv on our non-GMO alfalfa field for three years, and we see fewer weeds. The grass stand has thickened up naturally, giving us a better-producing field.

We have switched our entire farm to CaluSolv. I have never seen plants produce and grow like they do on the product!

The armyworms ate my neighbor’s bermudagrass hay on each side of my property. They made it 10 ft into my field and disappeared. The product speaks for itself!

Charles M

We only had to spray the garden twice for bugs and with the straw and newspaper mulch, we only had to water it 2 or 3 times.  God so blessed us!!!!  I’m very sold on your CaluSolv and the plants love CaluSolv!  It’s awesome!!!

After using CaluSolv for 4 years, my soils are balanced and release stored nutrients. This program has actually allowed me to use less fertilizer each season while producing high-quality, great-tasting tomatoes that my customers wait for each year.
