syn-tro-phy: the relationship between the individuals of different microbial species in which one or both benefit nutritionally from the presence of the other.
SYNTROPHY™: Growing Solutions biologically rich and species diverse Fortified Microbial Extract produced and delivered on site for agriculture, bioremediation, storm water management and soil erosion control applications.
As we entered the industry in 1997, compost tea was something anyone with compost, a burlap bag and a five-gallon bucket could make. Growing Solutions’ technology created a highly refined environment for that process and included a nutrition source, our proprietary Compost Tea Catalyst™ formula, to create a species rich and diverse “fortified microbial extract” or FME.
The agriculture industry has experienced great success using FMEs as amendments, reducing the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides and increasing the water-holding capacity of soils. As these practices have been reviewed by other industries dependent on healthy soils, Growing Solutions has been at the forefront to bring FMEs as solutions to their challenges.
Research and trials have been conducted using FMEs in the areas of storm water management, soil erosion control, and soil remediation. Our solution to these soil management challenges is to provide FMEs on site, made with a highly processed and regulated compost substrate and proprietary microbial nutrition formulas, and using Growing Solutions patented equipment and Fine Bubble Diffusion technology in a Mobile Depot unit. It’s called SYNTROPHY™.
Our Mobile Depot produces
2,000 gallons of SYNTROPHY per day
