soil doctors & agriculture

We are consultants on soil restoration for agriculture. We are currently consulting in Peru for the Tika Papa project, the development of the Peruvian native potato, in Argentina, for a 40 000ha estancia breeding catle..

To design food you have to know how it is produced.

Step 1 : Find water. Water study by satellite radar, With Alain Gachet the creator of the technique. The radar satellite of Alain Gachet goes 20m deep in the ground to trace water and understand its history and future evolution. This study gives us the exact GPS data to dig the wells.

Step 2 : Understand the soil. 80% of the living beings of this planet are in the soil. Study of the soil by Bio-indicator plants. With the botanist Gerard Ducerf, creator of the technique. Gerard Ducerf is also the manager of the recollecting teams of wild plants for the Boiron Laboratories and the Laboratoires Fabre, both major farmaceutical labs in Europe.

All the seeds have been spread off all over the planet for millions of years. But only the ones that encounter the conditions for which they are genetically programmed germinates. When you know the original biotope of the plant, the bio chemistry and the genetics it is responding to, we can define the state of the soil, and the inner dynamic of the soil.

How the soil is evolving and what we can do to influence this evolution. No classic soil study could give us such acurate information with such a small investment.

Step 3 : Depollution, planting & natural fertilisation. From the above studies we can decide of urgent moves and adapted cultivations. Our interventions never use synthetic means and always enhances the solutions experienced from nature :

  • myco-depollution : mushroom are the biggest eaters of hydrocarbons and PCBs (a 12 feet road can be crossed – eaten – by a mushroom in 2 months)
  • mycofertilizers : mycelia are dependent on dead plants to grow, therefor they protect them and accelerate there life cycle: the most buoyant and rapid they are the more they can eat, but as well, the better agro turn-over we can achieve.
  • mycorestoration : combining techniques of seeding with clay inoculated with mycelium we can recreate the first steps of soil creation by generating the first steps of “clay/organic matter balance” so that the soil can step out of a desertification spiral.
Remember : there is no desert on earth that has not been created by man. It is our duty to repair this in order to bring back a balance in the climate and fight against global warming. Remember also : it can take one year to create a desert, which will need 10 000 years to come back to its prior state; If you help it, it can take as less as 2 years…
  • Plant sociology : plant complement themselves in order to defend and fertilize each other on their own with the less external need of external intervention…
  • No ploughing : plough was invented by the Egyptians to keep the paysants quiet… Ploughing has no scientific basis what so ever and destroys life in the soil.
