“Love my green food!”

Having bought a unit that has always been previously rented, the garden has been neglected and the sandy soil was depleted of humus, now, with the addition of humisoil and green food fertiliser my soil has improved significantly and plants are thriving. I have garden worms and water retention not previously had.
Looking forward to a lush tropical Garden that’s already improving with every green food addition.

Making my own soil 

Just to let you know my business is now fully making our own growing medium with Green Food’s amazing Humisoil® and XLR8 Bio Fertilizer. With amazing results.💚🌱🌿

Ange C – Eat Shoots and Leaves

  • Fermented fruit & veg
  • Organic material
  • Coffee granules
  • Seafood scraps
  • Egg shells
  • Purified water
  • Cane syrup
  • Yeast

Apply with spray bottle or watering can. Can be implemented into fertigation systems too.

Ratio: 1: 10

1lt = 100m2 or 10ml (a cap) = 1m2

Easiest application for back yard gardening is with watering can. Add 100ml XLR8®Bio, fill up with water and apply liberally across your whole garden weekly to start with, reducing to fortnightly in time.

*If odour persists, simply add more water

Liquid soil enhancement

Feed your plants AND rebuild your soil – naturally

XLR8®Bio is a fermented soil probiotic and fertiliser will significantly:

  • improves soil health
  • restores the natural balance of microbes
  • enhances vitality and production of plants
  • builds resilience to pest & disease
  • increases plant yield and quality of fruit
  • is safe to be used liberally, everywhere

Crafted from fermented food waste with no other nasties, XLR8®Bio is derived from 100% natural ingredients and is suitable for organic and non-organic gardens. While originally created for the agricultural market, XLR8®Bio is a tried and tested back yard favourite. Allowing Mum’s and Dad’s to know that their garden is safe for their kids to play in with no synthetics being sprayed about.

Uses include:

  • Lawn rejuvenation (builds moisture retention even in sandy soil!)
  • Natives
  • Veggies & herbs
  • Seedlings all the way up to perennials
  • Orchids
  • Pot plants
  • Indoor plants

    The sciency stuff … How does it work? 

    XLR8®Bio is a probiotic formulation combining the key technologies pioneered by VRM Biologik® for soil enhancement and nutrient management. With continued use, the ongoing stimulation of biological reactions in soil contributed to building of humus and mychorrizal activity in the critical root zone.

    XLR8®Bio works by releasing nutrients locked in soil and accelerating nutrient uptake and utilisation by crops. This inoculant contains beneficial microbes and sugars which when applied to the soil, encourage all the existing microbes on the property to the party. They then multiply rapidly due to the XLR8®Bio and begin to move towards plants in which they trade (the plants are then producing sugars and exude them into the soil by the roots to feed the microbes in return for water and nutrients). These exudates are essentially carbon, taking the Co2 from the air and pumping it into the soil to continue the trade process. This process essentially stimulates microbial activity, in which mychorrizal fungi are also present. The fungi attach themselves to the plant roots and create massive networks of hyphae (roots).

    Above all, with continued use of XLR8®Bio, we’re helping nature rebuild the natural biology in soil so plants, bacteria and microbes can live symbiotically, the way nature intended.

    • Improve soil structure
    • Use less fertiliser
    • Unlock soil nutrients
    • Use less water
    • Mobilise phosphorus

    When applied in conjunction with XLR8®Bio, HumiSoil® can significantly increase soil health through biological reactions. The perfect solution for any grower wishing to transition to regenerative farming techniques.

    Nutrient Values:

    While the use of this technology is focussed on mobilising nutrients bound up in the soil, the application of the products comes with a standard level of nutritional values:

    1 Tonne of HumiSoil®

    26kg Nitrogen

    7kg Phosphorus

    27kg Potassium

    Top soil enhancement


    HumiSoil® is a humus-rich soil enhancer of which aids the development of humus in soil. The pre-fostering of humus allows growers to speed up the natural process of humus formation in soil. As a fully matured top-soil enhancer made from 100% organic input, this product not only contains high levels of humic materials, but a range of beneficial microbial activity. With continued use, this product assists in the maintenance of healthy soil biology. HumiSoil® is best used in tandem with Green Food’s XLR8® Bio.

    What does HumiSoil®  do?

    • High levels of humic materials = carbon fixation and natural humus formation
    • Nitrogen fixation from air = reduced reliance on nutrient application
    • Mobilisation of phosphorus = higher, sustained available P
    • Promotes beneficial fungi = antibiotic, soil formation and nutrient transfer functions
    • Hydrosynthesis = manufacture of water via bacterial photosynthesis
    • Unlock soil nutrients
    • Use less water
    • Mobilise phosphorus

    Soil benefits of HumiSoil®

    A microbial incubator –  HumiSoil® acts as casseting media which allows the establishment of important soil cultures in otherwise difficult circumstances. These organisms are responsible for fixing carbon and feeding energy, nutrients and water into the soil profile.

    Promoting beneficial fungi – HumiSoil® assists in the development of a range of beneficial fungi species which provide and antibiotic support to plants as well as performing important functions in the formation of soil particles and in the development of nutrient transfer cultures around the roots of plants.

    A water reservoir – HumiSoil® contains bacteria which manufacture water.

    Additionally, HumiSoil® fosters humus development in soil which in turn helps to absorb and store moisture.

    HumiSoil® supports the development of naturally healthy soil. Healthy soil microbes have been linked with reduced
