Applications and Use: For innovative, conventional and organic, growers interested in improving key soil performance characteristics for greater annual fruit, vegetable, and leafy green crop yield, significant return on investment, and long-term sustainability benefits.
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. Cool Terra can help improve soil quality and key soil performance characteristics for more robust plant growth, which can lead to higher marketable yields.

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.
Crops include but are not limited to leafy vegetables, strawberries, fruiting vegetables, cucurbit begetables, root and tuber crops, carrots and bulb vegetables and cruciferousvegetables.
For tight band application, apply 100-200 lbs per acre pre-plant, ensuring all applied material is incorporated into the root developement zone.
For broadcast application, apply 200-300 lbs per acre pre-plant, ensuring all applied material is incorporated.
Can blend and co-apply with most dry fertilizers, compost or humics applied pre-plant if incorporated.
In many environments, Cool Terra soil amendment products have the ability to optimize water-holding capacity in the soil, lessen evaporative water loss and, most importantly, increase plant “available” water – the water that plant roots can actually access – when compared to controls. For growers who desire to be
Cool Terra products undergo specifically engineered treatment processes that increase the cationic and anionic exchange capacity (AEC and CEC) of the material. When applied into the root zone, Cool Terra enables soil to more effectively hold externally applied nutrition, allowing the plant to uptake nutrition more effectively. Additionally, Cool Terra creates a more favorable environment for microbial development, which can further assist with both nutrient cycling and availability in the soil.
The Cool Terra soil amendment can have a significant impact on the soil microbiome. Bacteria and fungi essential for soil and plant health have been observed to thrive and grow more effectively when Cool Terra is applied. This comes as no surprise to us: We have engineered the biochar-based product to have many the properties that microbes find desirable. A healthy, diverse soil microbiome can result in fewer plant stressors and diseases, enhanced plant growth, and increased yield potential.

For new sod installations: As part of soil preparation, surface apply and lightly rake 18-70 lbs (~0.5-2 cubic feet) of product per 1000 sq. ft.
For seeding new turf: Spread an even layer of 18-70 lbs (~0.5-2 cubic feet) per 1000 sq. ft. to soil prior to seeding. Then rake both seeds and product into the top soil.
Apply during aerification for best results - 17.5 lbs / 1000 sq. ft.
