SymSoil® RC or Robust Compost

SymSoil® RC, is a form of Robust Compost, and the flagship product for SymSoil Inc.  RC includes the  complete ecosystem of soil biology. The complete soil microbe biome includes 7 broad categories of life: Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi, Amoeba, Flagellates, Nematodes and Microarthropods, as well as other forms of life.

SymSoil® RC, is a form of Robust Compost which has been manufactured for use by:

  • Conventional farmers, looking to improve soil health as they begin to transition into cover crops, low till and other biological methods
  • Organic Farmers seeking to speed up the process of regenerating their land, by reseeding the complete soil ecosystem
  • Gardiners seeking to supplement and enhance conventional compost.
  • Anyone using a compost tea brewer.

Robust Compost, is any organic material with over 1,000 species and include biodiversity across all 7 types of life.  SymSoil® RC is loaded with over 2,000 species, mineral, humic and fulvic acid.  Designed to be bioequivalent with the highest quality Soil Food Web compost, the biological specifications of each batch will be shared with the buyer.

For large scale farming  applications, we usually recommend using compost tea, often in conjunction with adding organic matter to the soil and cover cropping.  Talk to us about you specific situation.

Home Gardeners are encouraged to blend half a cubic foot into 50 lbs of conventional compost.  SymSoil® RC is too strong to use directly, but will improve plant health, the flavor profile and nutrient density of food.  Do not let RC exceed 35% of the total soil in your garden or planter.
