Luxor Creek Bridge
The Luxor Creek Bridge in Radium, BC, was struggling due to very low organic matter, high pH and salt in the soil. The steep slope did not allow for traditional topsoil, but was easily treated with ProGanics allowing for significant cost savings.
The application process began with ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) which has been designed as a topsoil alternative that accelerates the development of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low nutrient levels and limited biological activity.
The second application was of the erosion blanket, Flexterra which is ideal for dormant seeding and long-term protection in arid climates. It also minimizes soil loss and turbidity of effluent runoff.

July 15: There is a significant difference between the area that was treated with ProGanics (foreground) and area not treated with ProGanics (far left)
Two years after installation - There is a strong establishment in large portions of the area. Alfalfa is thriving.
Two years after installation there was strong root development found. Areas that had been treated with ProGanics and Flexterra showed much better establishment and erosion protection than areas where seed and mulch only were applied.
