This restoration technique is documented in 
hundreds of peer-reviewed articles. But, until recently was only available on a small scale. 

SymSoil has patented Robust Compost manufactured in large quantities at a low cost.

By cultivating multiple types of microbes, for soil reintroduction, SymSoil Robust Compost naturally, and efficiently restores the complete soil ecosystem in as little as one season.

It finds weakness and cultivates proper natural working soil balance.

Timely and cost-efficient, the results are nutrient-rich, flavorful, larger crop yields.
