Good soil is healthy soil. Healthy environments rely on healthy soil.
The soil in which we grow Good Earth Cotton is rich and naturally nourished. Our black alluvial soil is so fertile, it stores tones of carbon. By sequestering this carbon, we grow our climate positive cotton with no negative emissions.
Our farming techniques, along with years of extensive research and development have proven our crops to be carbon positive. This is a fact which has been independently verified by the University of Queensland, Australia.
Some of the practices that we employ to achieve this include, using organic composite waste matter, crop rotation, seed planting methods combined with little tillage or turning of our soil.
We have been using these “best practice” techniques for many years. Over time our soil health has improved dramatically. Our healthy soil is not only rich environment to grow our cotton fibres, but also provides a loving home to many living organisms such as vital earth worms and microorganisms.
