Improved Nutrient Uptake and Water Conservation provided by Soil Secrets TerraPro Product.

An Albuquerque Metro Soil Ecology company, Soil Secrets LLC has invented the ability to manufacture a bio-identical soil molecular substance that can improve how soil supports vegetation.  Improving the crop or landscape plant material improve its ability to get water out of the soil.  Improve the soils ability to store water for longer periods of time.  Improve the drought tolerable limited of any landscape or crop.  And last but not least improve the vegetation's ability to get mineral nutrition out of the soil.  With the Western States drought impacting both agriculture and urban landscaping, this material can be a game changer in how we manage what we do on farms, in our personal yards and with large public sector landscapes such as parks and sports fields.  It’s all about fixing, the Bio Geo Chemical processes of the soil’s ecology using bio mimicry so that the soils natural biochemistry and terrestrial biosphere of microbiology are working properly.  Using the brute force of adding bulk organic matter such as compost and animal manures will not achieve this goal as easily, effectively or as affordably as TerraPro’s bio-mimicry by Soil Secrets.  TerraPro is cost effective, easy to apply and provides long lasting sustainable benefits!

First it must be understood that the structure of the soil is of critical importance and when soil lacks a good macro aggregate structure it’s difficult to expect or achieve healthy roots of a plant, or healthy soil microbiology.  Both need drainage, oxygen and porous soil to grow in.  Also the macro aggregate soil can hold more water than a soil that is collapsed.   What achieves this process of causing soil particles to aggregate is complicated and involves molecular biology with some Quantum Physics provided by the powerful organic matrix of carbon rich molecules that Soil Secrets calls “Supramolecular Humic Molecules” which are the active ingredients of TerraPro. Some may refer to these molecular substances as humic substances or humic acids, but those terms are too generic and don’t describe accurately the whole story.  Soil Secrets secured Commercial Proprietary Information Contracts with several laboratory facilities, both public and private, including Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, to provide Deliverable information down to a sub atomic level on who these molecules are, how do they work and the success of formulating them as part of a manufacturing process so that they can be provided in huge quantities by Soil Secrets. 

Here are some photos demonstrating just a few of the hundreds of benefits that TerraPro can provide a soil, a farm, or an urban landscape.  The vineyard photos were taken at the San Vicente Ranch in Baja, Mexico in late August of 2014.    


This first image below shows how TerraPro's  Supramolecular Humic Molecules corrected the structure of the clay soil at our research site in Los Lunas New Mexico, where the soil was a highly alkaline collapsed saline and sodic clay soil.   


This is a common problem in irrigated agricultural regions of the world, where salts from the water and from fertilizers have collapsed the soil structure!   This is significant because when soil has poor structure it also is more prone to disease pressure.  It will also not absorb water or air, inhibiting good health of plant roots.   With poor soil structure of clay, water  will sit on the surface until its lost to evaporation.  In the meantime it also seals off the soil from oxygen which contraindicates healthy root function of most plants.  It also decreases the amount of water the soil can store and keep available to the vegetation.   On a global scale we must remember that over 40 percent of the worlds agriculture is performed where the climate is dry and irrigation is required, and the soil’s health is at risk because of conventional agriculture practices.    In which case we need to be able to maximize every drop of water.  

Non treated control  & treated vines side by side:


The photo above shows a control field on the left that was not treated with TerraPro’s supramolecular humic molecules.  On the right is a line of vines that were treated, showing vigorous growth.  In addition, the treated vines only need watering every 12th day, while the control still requires watering every 4th day or else they come stressed.

TerraPro Treated Field:


This photo above was taken of a field that was treated in Spring of 2014 with TerraPro.   Harvesting for making the grapes into wine is underway and the grower and wine maker are extremely happy with the results.

How much Ag Grade TerraPro was used to get this water savings benefit, with better production?
Great Question! 1256 kilos per hectare which equals about 1118.7 pounds per acre of Ag Grade TerraPro was used.

Weed Identification: Goatheads or Stickers

Goatheads (Tribulus terrestris) are native to Southern Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Goatheads are also called stickers, sticker weed, bullhead, devil’s weed, and puncturevine. Goatheads are easily recognized by their prostrate growth form,

leaves with leaflets,


yellow flowers,

and stickers (Goatheads).

If you miss’em visually then they will stab you painfully in the fingers as you work your garden, or stick to your clothing and shoes. Goatheads are the primary reason local bicyclists must get “thorn proof” tires for riding on area trails and streets.
Goatheads have prostrate stems that radiate outward from one central point. Leaves are compound with smaller leaflets. Lemon yellow flowers form along the stems and fertilized flowers form fruits.Fruits consist of several attached structures called nutlets (Goatheads).

Each nutlet is a single seed that becomes hard or woody when mature. Each seed has two sharp spines that easily penetrate skin, clothing, and soles of shoes. This att…

Western Soapberry Tree

The Western Soapberry tree (Sapindus saponaria var. drummondii) is native to New Mexico. It grows wild from Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana westward through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Arizona, and Mexico. The fruit of the Western Soapberry tree is a drupe.


Mature fruits are translucent, amber colored, and contain a black seed.

The mature fruit without the seed


will produce a good lather with water


and has been used as a soap substitute.


Fruits persist on the trees through winter. The Western Soapberry tree can grow 1′-2′ annually reaching 25′-30′ tall and wide making it a good sized shade tree. Fall leaf color is an attractive golden yellow. Currently, there are no improved varieties of the Western Soapberry Tree.


It grows well on the alkaline soils of New Mexico and is very tolerant of heat and drought once established. This tree is rarely affected by disease or insect pests making it an ideal specimen tree for your yard or landscape. Soapberry leaves are pinnately compound w…

Afghan Pine

The Afghan Pine (Pinus eldarica) is also known as Desert Pine, Eldarica Pine or Mondell Pine. Afghan Pineis native to low rainfall areas of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and southern Russia. In fact, when planted in areas of high rainfall (> 20” per year), it becomes susceptible to a number of diseases and rapidly declines. This problem has occurred in East Texas. The Afghan Pine thrives in heat, wind, and tolerates drought. Afghan Pine must be planted in soils with good drainage like sand. It is not suitable for poorly drained heavy clasy soils.

Afghan Pines are generally pyramidal or Christmas tree shaped in form when young
becoming more oval or irregular with age.

The leaves of the Afghan Pine are evergreen needles usually found in groups of 2 per fascicle or sheath.

Needles are shed after several years and make excellent mulch as they fall around the trees base.
It has attractive trunk bark that becomes dark and furrowed with age.

Afghan Pines can add 1′-2′ new growth per year and reach 40…
