“Organic farming focuses on feeding the soil rather than feeding the plants. Chemicals are very hard on plants, animals, and insects that serve necessary functions in healthy soil.”
Bob Quinn, fourth-generation
Montana wheat farmer
“If we dont get sustainability in agriculture first, sustainability will not happen.”
Wes Jackson, MacArthur Fellow and
founder of The Land Institute
Each day, more growers are realizing meaningful health and economic benefits by converting from chemically managed production to biology-based practices. Merlin Organics helps growers develop solutions for both outdoor and controlled-environment production that address the unique disease and pest management, growth regulation, and water needs of the commercial agriculture and floriculture industries.
Agriculture clients realize benefits in reduced erosion and water use, healthier soil and plants, greater disease resistance, and lower costs of maintenance.
Commercial flower and ornamental growers work with Merlin Organics to increase yields by improving growing conditions both outdoors and in controlled environments.
Merlin Organics works in close partnership with growers to develop and implement bio-optimized nutrient cycling land care systems — our Living Landscape Systems™ — through our four-phase process that includes analyzing existing soil and plant conditions, designing a program to restore and maintain soil and plant health, implementation that includes training growers to manage them program themselves, and ongoing monitoring and assessment to ensure the program continues to improve conditions.
Once implemented, our programs eliminate nitrate leaching, conserve water, improve carbon sequestering, reduce fossil fuel consumption, improve plant resilience, and reduce total costs of maintenance. All synthetic, salts-based and water-soluble nutrient additives, which are destructive to ecosystems, are eliminated and replaced with a 100% organic, Living Landscape System — a system that is fine-tuned to the specific plants, location, and climate of the crops under management.
