192 Technical Brief for Archaea
Look at the difference when using Archaea on your plants.
Through photosynthesis, plants in the ocean capture energy from the sun and use it to convert carbon dioxide and
dissolve nutrients to promote growth. Soils that have a nutritional and microbial balance, similar to that of
ancient oceans will significantly increase plant growth.
Other factors affect growth such as moisture, temperature, aeration, and acidity, however not having these two
main ingredients will cause a stressful condition in the soil that will reduce the plants ability to reach its
genetic potential, resulting in reduced growth, lowered nutritional value, and decreased soil fertility.
The organic agriculture industry does use bacteria and fungi to create a healthier soil however a third and
critical microbial group, Archaea, is missing. Archaea are particularly numerous in the oceans. Archaea are now
recognized as a major part of Earth's life and may play roles in both the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle.
Agriculturists have determined the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and GMO (genetically modified
organism) will result in decreased soil fertility. Most bacteria and fungi can double, on average, every 11
hours, can become pathogenic based upon environmental conditions, and are easily mutated.
Archaea do not mutate, are not pathogenic, and have a working temp of 33 F to 185 F, which exists in a
hyperacidity range of 5.5 to 10.0. Archaea are one of the most critical factors found to promote healthy and
accelerated plant growth. These microorganisms double every 20 minutes. Archaea has many beneficial characteristics
such as increasing plant growth, flowering, crop yield, and brix reading (the sugar content of an aqueous
solution), while eliminating transplant shock and odor. They are even responsible for chelating all metals into a
non toxic form and can reduce all organic compounds into their elemental form. Bacteria and fungi do not have the
genetic code to perform this function.
