HumaTerra supports regenerative agriculture practices through biology, data, and support for the circular economy.
Most conventional agricultural soils lack fungi, and the decomposition function associated with fungi. H-Start microbial inoculants for agriculture are made from natural ingredients and blended to achieve targeted F:B (fungi to bacteria) ratios. Nutrients and binders are added to enhance shelf stability and provide essential food for the bacteria and fungi to grow and reproduce, helping to promote healthier soil and healthier crops.
The introduction of H-Start Broadacre and Brassica inoculant blends contribute to increasingly abundant crop development by improving nutrient cycling, increasing the decomposition of organic matter, and antagonizing pathogens.
H-Start Broadacre blend has a Fungi to Bacteria (F:B) ratio superior to 0.3:1. Organic ingredients provide essential food for the bacteria and fungi in the furrow around the seed prior to seed germination.
We use advanced biological tools to monitor how well the H-Start Broadacre blend balances microbial communities.
H-Start Broadacre blend can be applied anywhere that soil is disturbed in order to replenish the diversity and density of microbes which in turn returns their function in beneficial relation to the plants.
H-Start Brassica broadcast rates are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, less than 0.3:1. Natural ingredients provide essential food for the bacteria and fungi. We use advanced biological tools to monitor how well the H-Start Brassica blend balances microbial communities.
H-Start Brassica blend can be applied anywhere that soil is disturbed.
The demand for microbial soil inoculants has increased due to current market conditions:
HumaTerra supports regenerative agriculture practices through:
We only use certified raw material – Category A compost (CCME Guidelines for Compost Quality). We use the most advanced biochemical methods to monitor and control quality – including fungi to bacteria ratio – throughout manufacturing (from compost maturation to processing to storage).
Depending on the type of application, $20-$30 per acre
Depending on the initial condition of the soil, the yield increase will vary between 5 to 15%+ (see results from 2016 to 2021). The stalk diameter and root development will increase accordingly.
H-Start Broadacre and Brassica blends can be applied in the furrow (via air seeder) or broadcast. The pellet is 5/32” and has a density of 48lbs per bushel.

Yes, H-Start can be blended with fertilizers safely.
No, H-Start can only improve the soil and produces no adverse effects.
