With a systems dynamics approach to problem solving we working closely with our clients to ascertain the weak links in the chain of photosynthesis, crop production and soil renewal. Since health never comes out of a tin, or a recipe book, we look for ecological markers and keystone species as a means to repair the damaged systems you're working with. Our data driven method of working with you, your soils and deep understanding of the ecological processes driving fertility, we can shift the fertility needle very quickly, often over one growing season leaving you the tools and know how as to how to manage your soil fertility. Below are a number of ongoing projects and clients we work with.
Engelbergs Bruk, Västmanland
Engelsbergs Bruk is a family owned property, known for its intact artefacts of iron production dating back to the 1700's. 59degrees have been operating as caretakers of the trees since 2009. In this report you'll find a unique method of soil and plant rehabilitation performed using a microbial inoculation to stimulate root activity.
Bona Gård, Munsö
59degrees operate from Bona Gård. A 5th generation farm, owned and managed since the 1700's by the Giertta family. 59degrees work closely with the farm owners to optimise the cultivation methods necessary during the highly turbulent climate (both financial and otherwise). Our work here is of a perennial nature so keep checking in for updates and reports.
Hållsnäs Gård, Hölö
The soils at Hållsnäs are historically extremely challenging. Very poorly structured, and highly vulnerable to water logging. The project was an overseeing of a new design of market garden for a pair of biodynamic vegetable growers. 59degrees supported with both design, product and execution.
Karshamra Mat o Trädgård
Karshamra Mat & Trädgård is a family run business, catering to both public and business. We worked closely with them to enhance the productivity of their existing business. Over a 6 month period, we saw an increase in Soil Organic Matter, aggregate stability, yield, flavour and overall health of their crops.
