Soil Resetting

Natural Soil Disinfestation

Soil Resetting is an effective and environmentally friendly method for soil disinfestation. The added value of this approach is twofold. By enriching the soil with our unique plant-based Herbie mix and covering the soil oxygen-tight, a biological process is initiated that eliminates all kinds of soil-borne diseases and pests including fungi, nematodes, bacteria, insect larvae and various weeds. At the same time, Soil Resetting stimulates the growth of beneficial microorganisms. This is an excellent basis for a return to healthy soil life and thus better crop growth and higher yields.

The patented Soil Resetting is a superior alternative to steaming, chemical soil fumigation and other traditional disinfection methods that harm soil health. It has been proven effective for more than ten years for growers of vegetables, fruit, flowers, fruit and tree nursery crops, and high-value agricultural crops.

Improves Soil Health

A teaspoon of soil contains more living microorganisms than there are people on earth. So, soil is a rich living system and that is how we should treat it. Healthy soil life ultimately ensures higher yields, better quality, and efficient use of nutrients.

Through monoculture or intensive use of chemicals or steaming, many soils have lost their vital biodiversity. Pathogens and pests have a free playground when soil life is disrupted. Soil Resetting restores and improves the health of your soil. It combats diseases and plagues and stimulates the growth of useful micro-organisms, such as Mycorrhizae, Actinomycetes and Saprophytes. This makes the soil naturally rich, vital and resilient for your new crop.
Our breeding and production of Nerines is aimed at disease resistance, resilient cultivation and less use of chemicals. We have always steamed our soil, but this destroys the soil life, while we are striving for a natural resilient soil. Soil Resetting fits in very well with this method of cultivation. It has done its job, the nerines grow well and we have no problems with Pythium.Read more

How does it work?

With Soil Resetting, the soil is first enriched with our plant-based Herbie granulate, after which the soil is covered oxygen-tight. Herbie is a natural, rich food source for soil microbes. As a result, these microbes grow rapidly and consume all the available oxygen in the soil. Within two days, the oxygen level has dropped below one percent. Then fermentation takes place, and Herbie continues to break down in the absence of oxygen. Gases and substances (such as fatty acids) are released and cause pathogens to die off. Yet after the oxygen barrier is removed, an abundance of beneficial microbes in the soil will start to grow. This improves nutrient uptake and increases crop yield.
Herbie granulate


Our Herbie granulate is a unique, plant-based mixture that nourishes specific beneficial microbes in the soil. Herbie is free of contaminants, pathogens, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). You can choose from different Herbie varieties, so you’ll always have a mix that fits your situation. We also offer a Herbie mix that is approved for use in European organic production and registered with FIBL and other institutions.

The production of the Herbie mixes follows a standardized biotechnological process, so that the product is of consistent quality and safe for humans, crops, and the environment.
We have tested the product extensively under different conditions, over several years, and on various vegetable crops such as tomato, cucumber, bell bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, baby leaf lettuce, herbs and radish. We have obtained excellent results in controlling a wide range of fungal diseases and plant parasitic nematodes, as well as in increasing yield.Read more
