A regenerative slurry inoculant will be exhibited for the first time at Groundswell by manufacturers Sylgen Animal Health.

Called SlurryForSoil, the inoculant has been specially formulated for soil and plant health, says Sylgen director Geoff Hooper. It reflects the company’s commitment to foster sustainable and profitable agricultural practices, he adds.

“Our product represents a paradigm shift in slurry management, offering farmers a powerful tool to enhance productivity while enhancing the soil biome, and by facilitating the reduction in fertiliser use, lowering carbon footprints.”

Mr Hooper says he chose to exhibit SlurryForSoil at Groundswell because the event serves as a forum for farmers, growers and other people interested in food, the environment and regenerative agriculture.

“It provides an unparalleled platform for industry stakeholders to immerse themselves in the latest advancements and best practices within the realm of sustainable food production and environmental conservation,” he adds.

“When formulating the product, we were inspired by a core factor of the world’s most resilient ecosystems – biodiversity. It’s why SlurryForSoil™ contains 18 different soil-borne microbes,” explains Mr Hooper.

SlurryForSoil is fast gaining a reputation for its ease of use and wide-reaching benefits, claims Sylgen. “It also helps farmers reduce their reliance on synthetic fertiliser –another key facet of the regenerative mindset.”

Most recently Leprino Foods announced that it would fund its use across suppliers’ farms in GB – a move that could potentially save nearly 4,000t of emissions through the inoculants ability to reduce the need for synthetic fertiliser.

A bioactive fertiliser certified by Organic Farmers and Growers, the inoculant includes rhizobacteria, fungi, and microbes chosen for their abilities to enhance soil structure, health, and productivity.

“It makes slurry handling quicker, mobilises and retains nutrients, as well as reducing odour,” says Mr Hooper. “The bacteria and fungi are also proven to increase grass root growth and yields,” he claims.
