Helps Optimize Compost pH

Studies have shown that treating compost with SCD Bio Ag helps optimize pH, so it is consistently within the ideal 6.5-8.0 range for healthy decomposition--a key indicator of beneficial microbial activity.

Shown to Increase Effective Microorganisms Counts

Compost can’t happen without beneficial effective microorganisms: SCD Bio Ag has been to shown to increase counts up to 100%.

Helps Balance Carbon: Nitrogen Ratio

Studies have also shown that treating compost with SCD Bio Ag helps create highly nutritious compost within the ideal Carbon: Nitrogen Ratio range.

Accelerates Healthy Composting

Use SCD Bio Ag as a compost starter or compost accelerator for fast composting time: studies have shown SCD Bio Ag to help create finished compost--with no pathogens likeE. colior Salmonella present--within 35 days. SCD Bio Ag also helps compost smelling earthy and sweet--not foul--without nitrogen loss.

Why SCD Bio Ag®?

Effective microorganisms (aka probiotics) are a living mixture of beneficial “bugs,” called microorganisms, that typically come in liquid form. It’s a blend of bacteria, yeast, fungi, and others that can be used for a variety of ag applications.

SCD Bio Ag contains a powerful ecosystem of Lactic Acid Bacteria, Bacillus spp., Purple Non-Sulfur Bacteria, and Yeast. Unlike most companies, we use patented fermentation technology to grow carefully screened compatible species of beneficial microbes together, scientifically selecting for and enhancing their active functions. Using this patented method, our microbes form a unique synergistic community that is more effective together, as a system, than singularly-grown microorganisms.

SCD Bio Ag, like all SCD Probiotics products, is produced through a natural fermentation process—it is not chemically synthesized, genetically engineered or modified.

SCD BioAg is also certified OMRI Listed® (Organic Materials Review Institute) as safe for use in organic production--helping you meet both organic certification requirements and your needs for crop and field treatment. All SCD products are manufactured in Kansas City, USA under strict quality control standards.


Sustainable Community Development

SCD Probiotics was founded in 1998 as Sustainable Community Development to create products that don’t just replace the toxic chemicals in our lives but help undo their widespread damage as well—going beyond simply nontoxic to living, regenerative products that actively build health. But it doesn’t stop there. We’re committed to building community, sustainably, across all ecosystems--starting in our own backyard.

The Giving Grove empowers people in Kansas City communities to achieve greater food security. By planting small, urban orchards that are then championed and maintained by neighborhood individuals, school, and church groups, they support new entrepreneurs who learn, grow, give time, and harvest to transform and reshape the community in which they live. We’re proud to partner with The Giving Grove by providing SCD Bio Ag® for their orchards, helping them nourish depleted urban soil and grow healthier trees that flourish where they’re grown.
