The Biggest Lie Farmers Tell Themselves Each Year

Humus TechnologyRemember when gasoline used to be below $2.00 a gallon? (Some of us can remember $0.30 a gallon, but we aren’t telling). Today, it costs twice as much to fill your tank. The sad truth is, if you don’t want to sit by the side of the road, you have to find the extra money somewhere and that means you have less money for other purchases.

The cost of fertilizer is going in the same direction. Chances are, of course, that you have already experienced that “in the belly” worry about how much more money fertilizer costs. You are dependent on fertilizer and you have no control over the price. Like the gasoline you need to run your cars and trucks, you probably think you don’t have any choices.

Here is a secret. You are lying to yourself if you think that spending more money on fertilizer each year is the solution. Increased costs mean you make less money. I bet you will agree that is a trend that’s definitely not going in the right direction.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend less money, and have better crop yields? Would you like to improve the quality of your soil and reduce your need for irrigation? Of course your answer is yes (see, we already know you a little).

Humus Compost is your solution.

You can break free from being the victim of out-of-control fertilizer costs. The farmers we work with have seen a $100 an acre improvement (or more) in their bottom line. So by using humus, you make more money and and gain more independence – does it get any better than that?

And, there are even more benefits to using humus compost, including:

• You will need fewer pesticides and less fertilizer
• The quality of your soil will improve
• Less water is needed to grow a better quality product

It won’t happen overnight. Transitioning from chemical nitrogen to humified compost happens gradually. The indigenous nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil need to adapt, and that takes time.

But once it does happen, the benefits are huge. Every day you move closer to humified compost means you are that much closer to no longer being the victim of rising fertilizer costs. We have heard some farmers report increased yields of 10% or more. That means a higher profit for you.

Break the cycle. Learn how you can increase the quality of your product, reduce insect infestation, disease and weed pressure.
