Ecosoil info, products & news

Ecosoil was established in 2005 by Jako Pieterse. Previously he was a fruit farm manager in the Western
Cape where he was responsible, out of ignorance, for the deterioration of the soil over a period of ten years.
During this period a gradual increase in pests and diseases was experienced that escalated to a stage where
pesticides where unable to give effective control. After realising his mistake, he started using compost
tea and other biological products and was soon able to cut fertiliser and pesticide use. In the subsequent
5 years he was able to lower nitrogen applications by 70% and a dramatic decrease in weevil, nematodes and fungal
diseases were seen in two years. He also started a study group on sustainable farming
in 2003.
