Fastest Growing Ag-Tech Company Announces Rocket Riders for Organic Pest Control
SANTA ROSA, CA – January 13, 2020 – The proven results technology of SymSoil’s family of natural soil health products is getting a boost from beneficial nematodes that have stood the test of microgravity in the International Space Station. CEO Elizabeth Pearce announced today the addition of, “astronematodes” to the SymSoil stable of already highly successful soil amendment options. “We can clearly state what our scientists have known, shown, and proven, with that indeed SymSoil’s consumer outcomes are definitely out of this world, “ she said.
“In all seriousness, the critical role of appropriate nematodes in creating a healthy soil food web biome is well known in our industry. In proper balance, they are highly effective as an organic plant pest control. The nematodes from NASA-USDA research are believed to be the first known life form to survive a virtually unprotected atmospheric descent to Earth's surface. Powerful. Our choice including these nematodes is a better than perfect match to our product philosophy. SymSoil harnesses the best of nature with superior results, cost effective, high performance technology,” Ms. Pearce added.
SymSoil’s nematodes are the same species that traveled to the International Space Station for NASA. They kill and consume a variety of insect pests that have a developing (larval or pupal) stage of life in the soil. These nematodes have also been known to kill above ground stages of adults, nymphs and larvae. After being applied to the soil, they locate pests creating a kill and self-sustain cycle. As long as there is a suitable host, they will continue to survive and reducing the pest population.
