Cinderite can improve farm production and yields
A one-time application of Cinderite increases moisture and nutrient retention, water infiltration, aeration and soil paramagnetism.
Cinderite also contains an abundance of essential trace minerals such as potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, iron and boron. As raw minerals, these are not immediately available but are slowly chelated (made available) through humic substances, root exudates and microbial life. Cinderite’s vesicular texture improves soil structure and retains moisture/nutrients, while its paramagnetic nature stimulates beneficial soil biology and plant vitality.
Cinderite's paramagnetism aligns with and enhances the geomagnetic field (GMF) in soil ecosystem. The GMF is a field of energy created by the convective movement of earth's liquid iron and nickel outer core. Life on earth depends on the GMF not only for the protection it provides from harmful cosmic rays, but also for the constant field of energy it produces in all biospheres. Many forms of microbial life use the GMF to navigate through a soil ecosystem.
Illinois State University’s Andrés Vidal-Gadea's research on nematode magnetosensitivity reveal how essential the GMF is for some microbes. The nematode C. elegens uses the horizontally oriented fields of the GMF to migrate vertically within the soil horizon. When the researchers elimated the GMF's presence by applying an artificial magnetic field in the opposite direction of the earth's, the nematodes were unable to navigate the soil horizon. Considering, enhancing the GMF with a paramagnetic material can also improve the efficiency of the microbial life which depend on it.
Plants are also directly influenced by the GMF. The University of Turin, Italy conducted extensive research to document magnetic field effects on plant growth, development and evolution. This research is the first peer-reviewed evidence which declares the role of the GMF in plant growth. Increasing the GMF's presence in the growing environment consistently increased production, germination, chlorophyll content and immune response of the plants.
