It's not often that a truly revolutionary product comes along and changes the world. Our line of products are just that. Our scientist, Dr. Bill Jackson, whom some regard as "the father of organic science," has created a truly revolutionary approach to growing healthy plants and balancing soil.
Dr. Bill Jackson, PhD., the man behind the science.
Our scientist, Dr. William Jackson, Ph.D, has pioneered innovation in the organic agriculture. With his award winning book, Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: Organic Soil Conditioning, being referred to as the "bible of organic farming," by farmers of farms large and small, he has often been referred to internationally as, the 'father of organic science' – accolades he takes humbly and with an increasing sense of responsibility to continue to help wherever possible.
Dr. Jackson's interest in healthy soil and safe products began as a child raised in a small farm community of Idaho where he had watched his Grandfather's two horses plow a field that would now require a huge tractor. Over the past 50 years Dr. Jackson witnessed, first hand, the impact of major agricultural use of inorganic chemical salt fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, hormones and antibiotics on human and environmental health.
The negative impact of chemical fertilizers inspired Dr. Jackson to innovate organic methods that could help renew the soil, improve crop production, and help remove harmful chemicals from the human food chain. The environments of birds, animals, and humans needed some care and there were problems that needed some answers... enter his forumlations for "the "Answer®" line of products.
Two of Dr. Jackson's books, Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: ORGANIC SOIL CONDITIONING and ENVIRONMENTAL CARE & SHARE, set the stage for the development of products that give people safe alternatives to the toxic and hazardous chemicals widely used today.
Dr. Jackson was awarded FIRST PLACE in the Non-Fiction Book Category of the 1994 National Self Publishing Awards by Writer's Digest for his book: Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: Organic Soil Conditioning. This text is a thorough reference book that summarizes over nine years of Dr. Jackson's concentrated research and writing interests. Written for a diverse audience, the text is useful for gardeners, farmers, ranchers, agricultural researchers, everyone interested in safe, sane and productive growing, and those interested in nature's natural, biochemical remediation processes. Dr. Jackson advocates a wider use of organic soil conditioners to improve fertility and supports this position by detailed discussions of scientific evidence. Chapter topics include humification, humic and fulvic phenomenon, water, nature's nitrogen cycle, organo-clays, growth regulator stimulants, and toxic waste remediation. The textbook contains a bibliography with over 1,500 entries, a glossary defining over 400 words, and a detailed index. The review published by the Bulletin of the International Society of Soil Science describes Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: Organic Soil Conditioning, in a positive, supportive tone.
Dr. Jackson turned to environmental issues in his third major book: Environmental Care & Share, Working Model Constructs Which Suggest: "We can do better," published in January 1995. in this book Dr. Jackson reviews the individuals, institutions, and entities, affecting the environment of the United States, and the world, and the roles they play. This review describes government regulations and regulatory bodies, corporations, including insurance companies, unions, and individuals in various positions of influence. Environmental Care and Share contains California Proposition 65, EPA, and OSHA tables which list chemicals known to be toxic, hazardous, carcinogenic, and apparent birth-defect precursors. In his pleasantly pragmatic manner, he explains how the health and safety of earth's inhabitants can be improved by describing products which are safe alternatives to the chemicals listed as toxic, hazardous, carcinogenic, and apparent birth-defect precursors. Dr. Jackson challenges readers to exercise their personal influence by using products that are safe to humans, animals and the environment.
In 1997, with his attention once again pulled toward issues of the agriculture and animals, Dr. Jackson completed two articles; Dynamic Growing for Master Gardeners and Microorganisms Plus Bio-Stimulant for Master Gardeners, which were presented during two lectures at the Master Gardener International Conference. Also completed were two articles: Humus and The Makeup of Soil and Microorganisms-How We Can Assist Them, which were presented at seminars for ACRES USA.
An article Dr. Jackson researched and co-authored, "Some Functions of Enzymes," was published in the August 1997 POULTRY DIGEST. ACRES USA published an interview with Dr. Jackson by Charles Walters title, "Restoring Life to the Soil," in November 1997, and his article, "Protecting Your Soil's Micro-organisms," in December 1997. In 2002, Dr. Jackson researched and co-presented “From Humic Substances in Academia To The Needs Of International Commerce,” to the 20th conference of the International Humic Substance Society. In October 2002, Dr. Jackson’s article, "Reduction of Hazardous Levels of Agricultural Nitrogen in Water and Soil," was published in the Journal of Medical Hypothesis.
To help provide alternatives to toxic and hazardous chemical products, Dr. Jackson has developed "the "Answer®" line with numerous safe products for agriculture (including livestock), industry and human use. Among these products are seven all natural, animal feed and water additive products which which all meet FDA, AAFCO and organic requirements. The Answer® line of products also include: The Cleaner Answer® (originally labeled Environmental Care & Share, Dispersant/Degreaser) – a multiple benefit substitute solvent which has been thoroughly tested with positive results as a safe alternative cleaner for government, military, industry, farm and home use; and, The Bio-N-Liven Answer® (originally labeled EC&S Bio-Stimulant) – a multi-enzyme based product formulated to work in conjunction with nature for the rapid stimulation of organic, microbial action in the remediation of waste, composting and odor control. Both products received USDA approval in 1994.
Dr. Jackson has kept his attention turned towards human health issues and formulated as Osteo-Min-Zyme and Vita-Min-Zyme – multi-enzyme based supplements to aid in digestion as well as provide balanced, organic vitamins, trace minerals and electrolytes. This products is formulated to help the body maintain strength, balance and wellness.
Dr. Jackson is currently completing a sequel to Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: Organic Soil Conditioning which is expected to be published in 2014.
Our revolutionary organic fertilizer, The Nano-Ag Answer®, is the newest product in Doc's offering of alternatives to toxic and hazardous chemical NPK fertilizers.
