Clint Johnson, CEO and President of Millborn Seeds, joins forces with Joel Peterson of Verdyol Biotic Earth to discuss how Millborn's use of value added solutions such as Biotic Earth and Sustane will help achieve successful growth for the Big Sioux River Greenway Project in downtown Sioux Falls.
Millborn utilized its proprietary Fine Fescue Turf Mixture with Myco Apply, a mycorrhizal fungi, to set the foundation for proper vegetation on the commercial project. Millborn's Fine Fescue Mix requires less water than traditional turf blends while still able to withstand moderate traffic. It consists of 25% Sheeps Fescue, 25% Creeping Red Fescue, 25% Hard Fescue, and 25% Chewings Fescue.
Turf establishment accelerates with 4-6-4 All Natural Organic Fertilizer from Sustane. A complete package containing Slow Release Nitrogen, chelated micronutrients, organic phosphorous and humic substances. Suståne® 4-6-4 works by replenishing the soil with a rich supply of humus (stabilized organic matter) and the essential nutrients required for sound and long term fertility programs.
Verdyol's Biotic Earth Black was also a vital component of the hydroseeding mixture to help establish accelerated and proper vegetation on the slopes.
Through a scientifically balanced combination of specially processed straw, flexible flax fibers, infused with Canadian Sphagnum peat moss, mycorrhizae, Triacontonal growth stimulant, soil conditioners, and micronutrients you get the best possible soil conditioners in the Biotic Earth BlackTM. When used with the EarthBound 2000 or Scientific in areas where the soil lacks organics or has poor tilth, Biotic Earth BlackTM and the EarthBound® Soil Builders improves moisture holding capacity, water infiltration, soil structure, soil microbial activity, optimizes seed germination, improved plant photosynthesis and cell growth, effectively kick starting and long-term maintenance of the vegetation. All these benefits, and rainfall and runoff resistant.
EarthBound® Scientific is formulated from both long chain and cross-linking molecules in conjunction with a hydrocolloid vegetable gum based tackifier to provide effective soil structure stabilization, water infiltration, and most importantly to adhere mulch to the soil surface. EarthBound® Scientific can be applied in almost all environmental conditions including light rain without any requirement for a cure time prior to subsequent rain.
