Manufacture of water via bacterial photosynthesis

HumiSoil® is an organically based product in which the biological reactions which result in the formation of humus have already been started. This pre-fostering of humus allows you to speed up the natural process of humus formation in your soil. HumiSoil® is a fully matured top-soil enhancer made from totally organic inputs which contains high levels of humic materials together with a range of beneficial microbial activity.

HumiSoil® is made using the Groundswell® continuous fermentation process pioneered by VRM®. In this process a range of microbes work to convert raw organic matter of many types into a product which has many of the characteristics of topsoil. An important part of this conversion activity is Bacterial Photosynthesis. Microbes responsible for bacterial photosynthesis thrive in the Groundswell® process and foster the fixation and mobilisation of additional carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and numerous trace elements from their environment.


A Microbial Incubator – HumiSoil® acts as a cosseting media which allows the establishment of important soil cultures in otherwise difficult circumstances. These organisms are responsible for fixing carbon and feeding energy, nutrients and water into the soil profile.

Promoting beneficial fungi – HumiSoil® assists in the development of a range of beneficial fungi species which provide an antibiotic support to plants as well as performing important functions in the formation of soil particles and in the development of nutrient transfer cultures around the roots of plants.

A water reservoir – HumiSoil® contains bacteria which manufacture water. Additionally, HumiSoil® fosters humus development in soil which in turn helps to absorb and store moisture.

HumiSoil® supports the development of naturally healthy soil. Healthy soil microbes have been linked with reduced incidence of disease outbreak as well as with much more efficient nutrient transfer to plants.

Specific functions of the beneficial microbial cultures fostered by HumiSoil® include:

  • - Manufacture of water in the soil
  • - Fixation of Nitrogen from the air
  • - Mobilisation of Phosphorus reserves in soil
  • - Capture of CO2 from the air and use of it to make sugars
  • - Manufacture of energy storage compounds like ATP
  • - Fostering of antibiotic reactions which help protect against disease

All of these functions help build a healthy soil and can assist plant growth.
