Carbo II™ is a high carbohydrate source, which is needed for proper carbon and nitrogen levels in the soil. Carbo II™ contains humates, and hydrates of carbon (disaccharides and monosaccharides). Carbohydrates are the most readily available sources of carbon for microorganisms.

Carbohydrates are required for an energy and carbon source, while nitrogen is the essential element of protein for microbial growth and reproduction. A shortage of nitrogen-rich materials causes slow growth rates of the microorganisms and slows down decomposition due to the lack of heat needed for both exponential growth of the microbes and decomposition. Ideally, the carbon to nitrogen ratios of a good soil program should be 20 to 1 to allow microbes to work at optimal levels.
