By co-utilising rock dusts with composted organic wastes to create alternative soil fertility systems we could maximise the value-added market potential for these composts in areas of large scale usage such as agriculture, thus avoiding the environmental and social impacts of landfilling these wastes. Their use could potentially reduce diffuse pollution from agricultural systems, particularly in sensitive areas and they may also create a valuable growing organics production.
Mycorrhizal fungi grow around or in plant roots, drawing carbon and sugars from the plant and pumping various nutrients and water directly into plant roots. The result is that plants with mycorrhizal colonies grow faster, bigger, and stand up to stress better. Mycorrhizal fungi form specific partnerships with plants, so that there are particular fungi that colonize specific tree, vegetable, or perennial roots.
Now “remineralization” of the soil is gaining attention as a necessary step to reintroduce vital minerals and trace elements into our growing medium. Compost is the basis for good healthy soil. Over the years, minerals and trace elements are farmed out of the soil, resulting in less productive crops and less nutritional food

Why should we remineralize our soil to ensured the optimal benefits from our foods
Rockdust feeds the plants which inturn takes up the minerals which we and animals eat.
These days we hear a lot about the importance of organic farming methods to replenish the soil with nutrients that can be lost over time. Soil remineralization creates fertile soils by returning minerals to the soil which have been lost by erosion, leaching, and or over-farming. It functions the same way that the Earth does: during an Ice Age, glaciers crush rock onto the Earth's soil mantle, and winds blow the dust in the form of loess all over the globe. Volcanoes erupt, spewing forth minerals from deep within the Earth, and rushing rivers form mineral-rich alluvial deposits.
Rock dust is added to soil to improve fertility and has been tested since 1993 at the Sustainable Ecological Earth Regeneration Centre (SEER Centre) in Straloch, near Pitlochry, in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.
