In a new white paper, we dive into the science and techniques behind Everflux Technologies and the genus of our inventor, Michael Collins.
In this paper, you will learn about how regenerative organic farming pioneer Michael Collins stumbled across a scientific insight that allowed him to grow crops with yields similar to conventional agriculture, while using only natural and organic inputs, at about half of the average cost. The system he developed was not only natural and in-expensive, it was also less work, and completely compatible with the implements of modern agriculture. We call this insight Endophytic Microbial Fertility (EMF), and it’s backed up by decades of research into soil and plant science, as well as thousands of years of Eastern agricultural practices.
Michael took this insight and turned it into two products, which today we call Bioflux and Terraflux. Bioflux is a liquid microbial inoculant made from recycled organic materials, and Terraflux – the name of which was inspired by Tera Preta, one of the most fertile soils on Earth – consists of biochar, inoculated with Bioflux. Using only these two inputs and regular cover cropping, Michael was able to achieve the amazing results described above: high yields, lower input costs, minimal effort, and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The chart below shows Michael’s results for strawberries grown at Bloomfield Organics (labeled as “Everflux”).
The goal of this paper is to explain the science behind EMF, the ancient farming wisdom from which it originated, as well as the modern science that is now explaining it, and how this system can be used today to make farming more sustainable and productive.
