Q: Will KozGro Organics help solve the salt problem I have in my soil?
KozGro Organics products can help to neutralize the salts in your soil which will help solve many salt related problems. You can read more about the effect of humic acid on high salt soil here.
Q: How does KozGro Organics help to control pests?
KozGro Organics can help to increase the brix (sugar) levels in the plants. Chewing and sucking insects excrete sugar, but they cannot digest sugar. Too much sugar will kill these insects, so they generally move from plants with higher sugar levels to plants with lower sugar levels. Read more about how brix levels help to control pests here. A higher brix level actually means a lot more than pest control for your garden. A plant with higher brix level is a plant with more nutrients and a better taste! You can learn more about how brix affects nutritional value here.
Q: Does KozGro Organics help break down crop residue?
Yes! KozGro Organics does break down crop residue by creating an environment in the soil where beneficial microorganisms will flourish. These microorganisms are then able to work at eating away the decaying plant matter left over from last year’s crops.
Q: How does KozGro Organics affect the root system?
KozGro Organics is specially designed to help the root system function at their best.

Apply in early spring to help wake up your soil. You can apply to bare ground before you've planted or you can apply to dormant plants.

At the end of the growing season, apply once more to aid in the breakdown of leftover plant matter.
