Our Signature Product
TM Agricultural (“Terra Mend”) is an organically certified biostimulant that primarily consists of a variety of plant extracts, arcadian seaweed, molasses, and fish meal. TM Agricultural is a liquid formulation that is applied to the soil, plant, and or seed, stimulating the existing micro-organisms. We (Best) utilize cold burst technology to extract exudates from a variety of different plants at different times of their growth and flowering cycles and different environments and elevations. After we have isolated these exudates, we grow them for 42 days to super concentrate them. These supercharged plant exudates are what sequence the bacterial colonization that is dormant in your soil.
“I am convinced more than ever that if I hadn’t been on the TM program for the past 4 years I would not have 400ha of chickpea crops planted. These chickpeas have not missed a beat and are on target for an above average yield. At current chickpea prices of $1250/tonne the $25/ha investment of TM is a no brainer!”
“I stumbled on TM (in 2015) and it has done a wonderful job on improving the soil biology. “Since using TM we have never had a problem with grain size, weight and screenings.’’ “I have never used pickle on any grain since and it is all TM treated with no issues or disease’’
“The root zone has gone from three-quarter of an inch below the ground to eight to 12 inches. “There is no doubt with the advent of TM on the pasture, the cattle are healthier and more feed efficient, stocking rates have doubled and there is no need to spray for red legged earth mite.’’
"The quality and species of grasses within the orchard has changed with stringy and less persistent varieties being replaced by preferable stronger species. This mirrors the experience in pasture under grazing. Species not seen for many years in some cases, have reappeared"
“There was higher protein and less screenings – at harvest time when it came out in ear, there was a lot more grain with more weight in it,’’ “We noticed on the barley paddock treated with TM for five consecutive years, it was the only one not requiring additional fertilizer in-crop, and it had no disease,’’
“Even two years later, we could see a difference in the following lucerne yield on the treated half,’’ “The ewes are flushing up better on the improved lucerne stands, and the sheep are maintaining a higher body weight.’’
“I believe the pastures on the home property are the best they have ever looked”
