Earth Sustaining Sciences Group Wheatbelt Soil and Water Salinity Solutions

The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group (ESS), with origins in the mining, resources and agricultural industries, comprehends business, ecological, cultural and societal enterprise commercial requisites. This is applied in the development, application  and management of sustainable all-natural   environmental, and agricultural solutions through minimal-risk all-natural IP biotechnology. The delivery mechanism, immediately applicable to any specific locale, providing cost-effective sustainable disturbed  lands   and waters remediation and rehabilitation is concentrated upon minimal change for   maximum benefit. The outcomes being rapid advancements in commercially prosperous agriculture, symbiotic with both environment and society.

Through 25+ years of self-funded research and development we are the creators of the Symbiotic Aquatic BioReactor (SABR) process, the world’s only proven low-risk, all-natural, cost effective set of solutions to affected water, soil to solve major   contamination and fertigation issues,   generated by metals, metalloids, less than suitable pH, and salinity through mining, processing, agriculture and natural events. The SABR Bioorganic Desalination System (SABRBODS) is a cost-effective micro, mezzo and macro   all-natural desalination solution, which couples with our agricultural   advancement systems to provide all-inclusive life-cycle solutions suitable for most environments.

The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group have developed and proved at Hyden in the Western Australian Wheatbelt, a world-first cost effective, rapid delivery, full-cycle all-natural biomelioration solution to the increasing agricultural soil and water salinity issues facing Western Australian farmers and orchardists, reducing salinity, adjusting   pH, restoring nutrients, wetting and   binding soils to more effectively sustain organic structure and growth.

The process utilises locally sourced, natural biota systems cultivated within the farming landscape, applied in a full-cycle sustainable waste free process. Even the effluent from the soil treatment is superior to most bore and irrigation waters in the   wheatbelt and orchard areas and   immediately beneficially useful.

 The ESS Wheatbelt Soil and Water Salinity Solutions Project

The ESS Wheatbelt Soil and Water Salinity Solutions Project commenced with interest from farming community in the development of rapidly deliverable, cost-effective solutions to soil and water salinity and nutrification that governments, universities and private groups have   over decades expended large   amounts of resources and funds upon to minimal or no avail.

The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group were able to apply 25+ years of successful research and development in a solutions application series delivering  a complete result. Even growing Corrigin barley seed in our improved soils system in 6 days, compared to   the unimproved or previously poor soils in 7-10.

The Project’s three locations selected according geography, demonstrated similar varied complexity issues, and introductions to receptive, solutions seeking communities and pastoralists are:

Coastal Northern Wheatbelt, Dongara: Targets:

  • The desalination of bore obtained pivot irrigation waters,
  • The salinity reduction and bionutrification of paddock soils,
  • The binding and wetting of soils to improve water holding capacity and stability as a growth medium,
  • The reduction and management of high Boron levels in soils.

Eastern Southern Wheatbelt, Corrigin: Targets:

  • The desalination of farm land natural water flows,
  • The salinity reduction and bionutrification of paddock soils,
  • The binding and wetting of soils to improve water holding capacity and stability as a growth medium,
  • The remediation and rehabilitation of highly salt affected paddocks to commercially arable land.

Far-Eastern Southern Wheatbelt, Hyden: Targets:

  • The desalination of farm land natural water flows,
  • The salinity reduction and bionutrification of paddock soils and other soils to improve development,
  • The binding and wetting of soils to improve water holding capacity and stability as a growth medium,
  • The remediation and rehabilitation of highly salt affected paddocks and lands to commercially arable land.

With work continuing, we can report excellent results in primary solutions designs; all world firsts and the current world leading science and sustainable, cost effective practical delivery in desalination and practical over technical full-cycle soil solutions, affordable and deliverable by all farmers.

Water Quality Indicators for water classified in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (1996)

  • Good quality drinking water-less than 0.5 ppt,
  • Marginal quality drinking water 0.5-1.5 ppt (more than 1ppt may have undue scaling, corrosion and taste),
  • Brackish 1.5-5 ppt,
  • Saline more than 5 ppt,
  • High Saline more than 12 ppt,
  • Hyper-saline more than 50 ppt.
