The impact of Zeba on the environment is one of the biggest differences between products in this class.

Since Zeba is based on corn starch, it has a very high carbon content and will, when broken down, revert to a substance which is a source of food for microbes. These microbes within the soil matrix increase and add to the soil aggregation (Glomalin) properties while fixing and mineralizing nutrients.

This effect on microbes, the increased soil aggregation and reduced water leaching combined with the reduction of bulk density allows Zeba to be a true buffer to protect the environment from the impact of modern farming practices.
