Expertise & Consultation
If you are wondering, “how should I manage my soil?”, then we are happy to tell you that you have come to the right place.
If you notice that nutrient solubility and retention in your soil aren’t improving, that water retention and erosion are becoming increasingly worse, or that the cost of using external soil amendment input keeps going up while you’re yield is decreasing, you have also come to the right place.
DocTerre specializes in soil ecological restoration of degraded soil ecosystems through soil food web science and agroecological principles combined. Our perspective is based on the notion that soil biology has immense influence over chemical and physical properties of soil.
Our expertise ranges among various subjects:
Mineralization—nutrient solubility and retention—hydraulic conductivity—porosity—water retention—erosion control—nutrient leaching control—crop yields—pests and disease management—high quality compost and inoculum—compost tech—actively aerated compost teas—compost extracts—compost tea tech—diverse cover cropping—companion planting—influencing Ph—soil carbon sequestration and quantification.
We can assist in the smooth transition of soil management practices for farmers and other land workers who are new to regenerative land management. We design personalized soil regeneration seasonal calendars which match the specific goals and needs of the land owner, working within their parameters. We assist in private R&D scientific process and documentation of product development and testing. We assist in improving the microbial biomass and diversity of composts.
We are applied soil ecologists, ecologists and agroecologists ready to serve our community working on the ground, bridging the latest in cutting edge soil science with the realities of farmers and other land workers/owners.
We are honoured to be among the first SFI affiliated labs providing Canadians concrete and effective assistance revitalizing soil ecological functions.
