C Wise helps you to manage the key soil factors responsible for building soil carbon. It measures the effect of soil microbes on the carbon levels in your soil, indicates your soil’s humus building potential and gives you the full picture of the major carbon pools in your soil. Soil carbon, along with other nutrients, is a key driver of soil microbial activity and the important microbial processes that produce soil health. Soil microbes degrade organic residues into labile (readily available) carbon, using some as food and building the rest into more resistant organic molecules, such as humus. However, a number of soil characteristics need to be in place for humus to be built. There needs to be adequate labile carbon to convert into humus, adequate nutrients in the right ratios, and good soil structure to provide the right physical conditions for humus construction. A must-have test for those serious about soil management, C Wise gives you the confidence to make better informed decisions about soil carbon, building humus and sequestering carbon.
