MyLand’s continuous delivery of microalgae rapidly improves the physical, chemical and biological traits of the soil, generating significantly healthier soil.
Why healthy soil?
Healthy soil not only produces more nutritious crops but is also more resistant to adverse events including erosion by wind and rain, excess rainfall or extreme drought and will rebound more quickly after a negative event such as harvesting under wet soil conditions or if land constraintsrestrict or modify planned rotations.
What makes MyLand’s practice novel is the scalability of the approach and how quickly it can positively impact your soil. It is regenerative agriculture made simple.
Good Soil Tilth:
Soil tilth is a physical condition of soil, especially in relation to its suitability for planting or growing a crop. Factors that determine tilth include the formation and stability of aggregated soil particles, moisture content, degree of aeration, soil biota, rate of water infiltration and drainage.
Sufficient depth refers to the extent of the soil profile to which roots are able to grow and function. A soil with a shallow depth as a result of a compaction layer or past erosion is more susceptible to extreme fluctuations in the weather, thus predisposing the crop to drought or flooding stress.
Good Soil Drainage & Porosity:
Soil porosity refers to the pores within the soil and it influences the movement of air and water. Soil microbes require oxygen and water for their respiration and when soil is compacted respiration slows down and decomposition of soil organic matter slows. Healthy soils have many pores between and within the aggregates.
The MyLand Impact on Physical Traits of Soil:
Sufficient Supply of Nutrients:
An adequate and accessible supply of nutrients is necessary for optimal plant growth and for maintaining balanced cycling of nutrients within the system. Excess nutrients can lead to leaching and potential ground water pollution, high nutrient run-off and green-house gas losses, as well as toxicity to plants and microbial communities.
Chemical & Toxin Free:
Healthy soils are either devoid of harmful chemicals and toxins or can detoxify and/or bind such chemicals making them unavailable for plant uptake due to their richness in stable organic matter and diverse microbial communities.
The MyLand Impact on Chemical Traits of Soil:
Diverse Microrganism Population:
Soil microbes are important to the functioning of the soil. They help nutrient cycling, decomposition of organic matter, maintenance of soil structure, biological suppression of plant pests, etc. A healthy soil will have a high and diverse population of beneficial organisms to carry out these functions and thus help maintain a health soil status.
High Levels of Organic Matter:
Organic matters improve many physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of soil, including water holding capacity, cation exchange capacity, pH buffering capacity, and chelating of micronutrients. Well-decomposed organic matter improves soil structure by increasing aggregation, enhancing biological activities in the soil.

Live Native Microalgae Enhances Soil Health
A technical in-depth perspective of the agricultural uses of microalgae and their benefits to both soil health and a variety of crops.
Microalgae is a soil microbe rich in both micro and macro nutrients that provides amino acids, polysaccharides, hormones, and other elements that are essential to soil and plant health. Importantly, microalgae do not consume other living microbes, but itself act as a principal food source for all other microbes. The presence of large quantities of microalgae cells stimulates the growth and health of the soil’s entire microbiome and provides an environmental foundation for healthy and abundant crops. The MyLand System ensures the delivery of healthy, living microalgae cells that are native to the soil into which they are infused – and in quantities that have a major and sustainable impact on soil productivity.
