Permanent Crop Treatment & Soil Amendment
Optimize key soil performance characteristics for greater permanent crop productivity and sustainability.
Applications and Use: For innovative, conventional and organic, growers interested in improving key soil performance characteristics for greater permanent crop yield, significant return on investment, and long-term sustainability benefits.
Cool Terra is a consistent, predictable, carbon-based soil amendment that has shown impressive crop yield improvement results on grasslands, orchards, plantations and more.
By partnering with over 50 independent, 3rd party, university and
agricultural researchers to conduct studies, on a wide variety of crops and in a diverse array of growing regions, we proudly stand behind the results we’ve seen.
The trial program utilized standard design methods for all the trials including randomized, complete block, replicated design, where fields or orchards are divided into units to account for any soil variation in the field.
A valuable tool in a grower’s soil health toolbox
No matter your soil type, geography, growing environment, and plant
varieties, many growers can benefit from Cool Terra’s soil health performance features. Permanent crop producers will especially benefit from Cool Terra’s fixed carbon composition, which provides for long lasting, season over season impact because of the materials ability to resist breaking down biologically over time. A one-time application at the time installation can help improve soil quality and key soil performance characteristics for more robust plant growth, which can lead to higher marketable yields over many years.
REVITALIZE YOUR SOIL. GROW WITH COOL TERRA®
Incorporating Cool Terra into the active root zone of plants or near germinating seeds. Application rate will depend on the plant species and planting density. Please consult your crop advisor for guidance.
Perennial crop applications
Crops include but are not limited to all cane and vine crops, citrus crops, nut crops and pome fruit crops.
For new installations, apply 250-500 lbs per acre pre-plant, ensuring incorporation into the root zone.
For existing installations, apply 250-500 lbs per acre pre-plant, incorporating in the root development zone without disrupting the root system.
For growers who desire to revitalize a problem area
The “high-stakes” operations of permanent crop production means your soil needs to perform at high levels across your land. In areas of your land that struggle to produce the quantity and quality of other areas, Cool Terra can provide key soil benefits to enhance the productivity level of problem-zones. Whether the issue in the problem area is related to soil structure, moisture, or microbial life, Cool Terra can revitalize that zone by providing soil structure benefits, improved water holding capacity, greater nutrient efficiency, and improved environments for microbial life.
For growers who desire greater productivity
By incorporating Cool Terra into the soil root zone, growers can establish a solid foundation for crop growth and quality. Cool Terra has been shown to improve plant establishment through quicker germination and increased root development. On top of that, Cool Terra can help growers protect permanent crops from stressors, disease, and other threats through its ability to provide beneficial environment for soil microbes. A healthy, diverse soil microbiome can result in fewer plant stressors and diseases, enhanced plant growth, and increased yield potential.
For growers who desire greater sustainability
Cool Terra® Organic is available for growers interested in improving the sustainability of their operations to achieve lasting environmental impact. Cool Terra® Organic is USDA 100% bio based certified, OMRI certified organic, and could help mitigate climate change through its carbon sequestration ability.
