  • Root balls retain moisture longer and plants don't dry out as quickly.  Plants are better protected from heat and water stress, and losses "on the shelf" will be greatly reduced.  


  • AVA Soil™distributes water more evenly in the container.  The result is a more even distribution of root mass in the root ball.


  • Plants won’t become over-watered as easily thanks to AVA Soil™ air-retentive qualities.


  • Water savings in production and on the shelf can be used as a marketing tool for the grower: for example, contributing to the protection of the environment.


Compost containers are considerably lighter when up to 20% of the peat is substituted for AVA Soil™, which can mean a lower transportation cost.

AVA Soil™ is very lightweight and can get dusty during the mixing process. Solution: Mix a bit of water in the bag to moisten the AVA Soil™ before dumping them out. As long as they are damp, they won’t create dust.  You can also install simple "dust misters" with PVC pipe on the edge of the mixing container, which will keep the dust down in work areas.

The question is, which is more expensive: AVA Soil™ or plant losses, additional water and fertilizer use, and longer production time? The payoff will be big and justifies the upfront time and cost.

AVA Soil™ provides a number of benefits for the grower during the production cycle.  The root mass develops more quickly and plants produce more branching, developing earlier and finishing faster.  Production time is shortened by 10% or more, depending on the plant species.

  • Greatly improved soil aeration - AVA Soil™ always maintains a minimum of 37% air per volume.


  • AVA Soil™ does not reduce available root space in the pot and is fully biodegradable, unlike Perlite and similar products (no flower bed accumulations). AVA Soil™ is acidic at first and later adjusts its pH using the surrounding environment.


  • AVA Soil™ has no surface charge and dilutes existing salt levels in the plant container.  AVA Soil™ is therefore also an ideal medium for Hydroponic applications.  In contrast, organic materials accumulate salt (negative charge).


  • AVA Soil™ can be quickly re-hydrated, a benefit when used with peat-based mixes.


  • AVA Soil™ reduces the need for fertilizer by up to 25% on light nitrogen-based mixes, according  to Dr. Bernhard Leinauer, a plant scientist at New Mexico State University.
