- The well-drained, well-aerated iron oxide rich gardening base that acts as a soil moisture retainer when mixed with composts.
- Support root growth by retaining moisture between waterings.
- The porous, finely granulated and fertile soil supports the stem after germinations.
- The iron oxide in red soil helps in chloroplast functioning and chlorophyll generation – improving photosynthesis.
- Red soil helps to maintain the soil pH at 5.5-7 – an ideal range for all acidic soil loving plants to thrive.
Why Seed2Plant Red Soil?
Seed2Plant red soil is the finely granulated version of the coarse red soil retrieved from warm deciduous forest floors. The soil is naturally granulated without undertaking any chemical proceedings. The light weighted red soil is rich in iron oxide and aluminum. The iron oxides imparts the bright red color to the porous, fertile soil. Furthermore, layers of organic minerals abundant in red soil helps control moisture retention when incorporated with organic manure or composts like the one we have
Iron Oxide in Red Soil
Iron oxide is one of the components regulating the process of chlorophyll generation Though iron is not directly involved in chlorophyll synthesis, it provides the essential base for chloroplast functioning. It aids in reducing sulfates and nitrates, thereby helping regulate energy production in plants. Lack of iron leads to progressive yellowing of leaves and intravenous chlorosis. Interveinal chlorosis (leaves showing yellow/ green veins) is depicted in leaves of the plants that have difficulty absorbing nutrients from the soil. Overwatering will weaken the roots, diseasing them. The ability of red soil to aerate and drain the soil appropriately helps optimal drying out between watering – creating a suitable ambience for plants to grow. Adding iron oxide in its chemical form will make it unavailable to the plants as it cannot dissolve well. Using a natural reservoir of iron in its most soluble form like in the red soil helps ensure proper plant growth.
Aluminum in Red Soil
Aluminum in red soil helps handle abiotic stress like nutrient deficiency and biotic stress caused by external pathogens. Aluminum is also the easiest way to control and lower soil pH levels (acidic soil). The acidic soil loving vegetable plants include: Radish, sweet potato, carrot, tomato, bell pepper(capscium), chillies, cucumber, broccoli, potato, beans.
How to Use Red Soil
- Add 1/4 parts of the red soil to vermicompost and cocopeat while preparing the potting mix.
- Occasionally add 200gms of red soil to revive the plants that have pale leaves and weaker stems.
