Plant Health That’s Rooted in the Soil

Dead soil indicates that there isn't much life happening under the ground. We work to restore life back to the soil by feeding it rich, biologically active carbon, living microbes and organic soil acids.

Breathe life back into your soil

High yields and quality crops!

Southland Organics was started from a passion for agriculture. Achieving higher yields and increased crop performance starts in the soil. Whether you are a commercial row crop farmer or backyard gardener, our all natural products revitalize dead soil to create an environment where plants can thrive. Taking care of our soil is taking care of future generations.

Replenish Soil

Our products are rich in Humic and Fulvic acid. These acids break up soil tension even in the most compacted soils. Humic acid penetrates the surface layer to deliver oxygen to the root zone. Strong roots depend on oxygen so they can grow stronger and work more efficiently at collecting nutrients.

Increase Nutrient Uptake

Having good bacteria in the soil is vital for a plant's ability to uptake nutrients. In a process called chelation, bacteria exchange food sources with plant roots. The conversion of these nutrients is boosted by the help of a rich source of humic and fulvic acid. These soil acids help change the charge of elements in the soil so they are attracted to the plant root. The plant in turn, uptakes these nutrients and uses them as fuel to grow stronger, better yields.

Survive Drought & Fight Disease

During some growing seasons a lack of water can be detrimental to a farmer. Even hot summers can put a strain on small scale gardens. Dead soil lacks the ability to retain water. It is proven that soil rich in organic matter increases water retention. Building a healthy soil environment also promotes stronger healthier plants. A healthy plant is less susceptible to disease.

WE FEED THE SOIL,
THAT FEEDS THE PLANTS,
THAT GROW THE FOOD,
THAT FEEDS THE FAMILY
  • Soil Amendments that maximize performance and increase yield
  • Improves water retention and discourages runoff by improving the tilth of the soil.
  • Prevents nutrient loss from leaching and helps the soil absorb and hold nutrients.
  • Increases the porosity of soil.
  • Makes fertilizers and other nutrients more effective by increasing uptake.
  • Increases cation exchange in the soil.
  • Reduces the cost of fertilization by reducing the loss from the soil and increases crop yield naturally.
  • Restores the natural balance of microbes.

Our Plants & Crops Products

"Every year we have used Jump Start, it has shown a positive increase, positive ROI. First time we did it, we just put it out one time and got a bump. Then tried it again on top of the crop and got a good bump. Next year we tried it, it showed a very positive ROI. Now, we use it on every acre."

Let’s Speak Science. Not Fiction.

Research shows that a humic acid soil conditioner can increase yield in a host of ways: Improving seed germination, providing better soil texture to hold and distribute water, enabling the plant to absorb nitrogen more efficiently and helping to fight disease.

“Humic substances affect soil fertility by making nutrients more readily available to plants. Humic acids also promote plant growth by enabling root penetration in soils. Humic acid also acts in decreasing water evaporation from soils.” USDA Report

In studies throughout the world, humic substances have been shown to increase yields of corn and oats, tobacco roots, soybeans, peanuts, and clover; chicory plants and other crops. Those studies also seem to indicate that the quality of the humate is important to the amount of increased yield or quality in the crop. Using our products, a study was conducted in 2005 with “Georgia Boy” onions on test plots in South Georgia to see if the grower got higher yield through application of a humic acid and fertilizer combination. The results bore out the anecdotal evidence: Growers using humic acid and fertilizer harvested bigger bulbs and had 20% more marketable produce over those who used only standard inputs.

Scientists in the Soil Ecology Laboratory at Ohio State University were working with peppers when they found that humic acid “can produce significant increases in overall plant growth and productivity” and “relatively large responses at low application rates.” In other studies dating back 40 years, crops with humic substances applied to the soil or leaves have had increased kernel weight in peanuts and greater yield in bean, potatoes, grain and soybeans. A study of tomatoes grown in a greenhouse had around 20 percent higher yield with humic acid, depending on the cultivar. Research has consistently shown improved quality and yield in row crop vegetables, containerized nursery plants and grains. Because the humic acid improves the plant’s uptake and use of nutrients, it can reduce the amount of nitrogen needed by as much as 40%.
