Land rehabilitation Overview:

Soil rehabilitation


  • Deserts
  • Mine Dumps / Tailings
  • Contaminated Soil
  • Exhausted Soil and Crop Rotation
  • Phytoremediation of contaminated soil

Soil degradation is when soil deteriorates because of human activity and loses its quality and productivity. It happens when soil loses its nutrients, or its organic matter. It also happens when the soil structure breaks down, or if the soil becomes toxic from pollution. Simply, it is the breakdown of soil particles. When the humusOrganic constituent of soil, formed by the decomposition of dead organic material, ie plants and leaves, by soil bacteria level falls below 1%, the beneficial micro-organisms can no longer survive and disappear totally. At the point plant growth is severely compromised.
The situation mentioned above can be reversed with the application of Ergostart Bio; the degraded soil can become productive again.  Often the main culprit of soil degradation is the inconsiderate and prolonged use of chemical products, weed killers, fungicides and insecticides over a long period of time.
