What can I expect from Solid Solutions?

We convert the pits to an aerobic breakdown.

Why aerobic?

Much faster digestion and the release changes from hydrogen sulfide, methane, and ammonia,to co2, so2, no2, etc.  Also digesting the fiber and remaining protein to discourage foaming which traps methane.

What about salts and heavy meetals?

The organic acids utilized will help disperse salts and chelate heavy metals leaving them in a stabilized form for flushing through the soil profile when spread.

What can I expect in the fields?

Residue breakdown by providing an excellent food source for the microbes and fungal colonies that converts residue to organic matter and then humus.  Recycles the fertility into a readily usable form for feeding the next crop and releases diseases to exposure and deletion.

Which diseases should I see help with?

Anthracnose, gibberellin and fusarium rots, gray leaf spot and Goss’s wilt in corn; white mold and sudden death in beans.

 As a Soil Structure and Nutrient Manager with Nutrient Management Specialists, I implement the systems approach to manage crops from the combine one year through safe storage the next. We discuss and implement a management plan that gets the crop planted in impeccable conditions, and then defends the yield through constant and consistent follow up with field visits and proactively defending that yield to make the most of field environments and the current year's weather pattern. Utilizing and incorporating manure management where needed into a complete cropping plan to boost efficiency, prevent a buildup of salts, heavy metals, and partially digested antibiotics, and be good stewards of the soil.
Detailed observations and providing a second set of eyes allow me to suggest options with lead time for implementation.  Nutritional Seed Treatments that are stand alone or with insecticides. Certified Organic as a stand alone.  Bringing in resourses from my Agronomy and Animal Science background.  Keeping abreast of EPA regulations for nutrient management in soil and watershed projects.  Implementing new strategies to avoid Bio-Accumulation of toxic metals and antibiotics in our food source.
My Pledge 
I will continue to access new people and knowledge that keeps me relevant in my efforts to introduce the positive changes to bring recommendations before and during the growing season to keep ahead of each year's unique challenges. I will bring the front edge of current best cultural practices along with suggestions of, "What would you think about trying?" or "Do you believe this will improve your farming operation?" and "Let's take a section and try this!". By stimulating your creativity and encouraging excellence, my goal is to have my customers 20% more efficient than their neighbors in all their farming endeavors. Also working in soil and animal nutrient management and odor control.  I sell products to break down the solids and foaming in manure pits, buildings, and lagoons. Speed up the compost digesters, and introducing organic acids through the feed that will bring about increased health and efficiencies, while keeping the pits and lagoons in a more aqueous state.
My business is client-oriented, and I maintain strict confidentiality.  I hope you'll find the information you need on this site about my company and the products and services I provide. I look forward to working with you.
