A Soil without microorganisms is just - Dirt.
80% of inorganic fertilizer leaches out as ends in the drinking water.
Because we put plants to a strict time table to eat by feed. Inorganic Fertilizers even when they are not hungry. As a result the nutrients are then not used up and leach out or become lost in runoff water.
Only microorganisms with adequate organic matter in the soil can hold them in the soil....
In an organic system the foods transformed by the microbes into plant-available forms are there all the time. Bacteria and fungi use any excess nutrients not used by the plant, so nutrients are not lost via leaching or run-off. Secondly, without excess nutrients available to them, pathogens have no access to high nutrient levels. As a result, many disease-causing organisms cannot grow in organic systems without nutrients in surplus.
The Role of Microbes :
Microbes are so vital that plant roots give out "exudates" - compounds such as sugars made via Photosynthesis to attract beneficial microorganisms. The microbes eat these exudates, creating a symbiotic relationship with host plant by :
1. Providing a natural defense by competing with disease causing microorganisms
2. Building micro-aggregates to improve soil health through aeration and water retention.
3. Eating nutrients in the soil and storing them before releasing to the plants.
4. Providing a nutrient reservoir to which plants have access 24 x 7, and can eat whenever they are hungry.
However, the cycle is not yet complete. Many of these nutrients are in a form not yet usable by plants. The protozoa (including amoeba, flagellates and ciliates) eat the smaller bacteria, and even other protozoa, transforming these previously unusable forms of nutrients into forms that are available to plants. When the protozoa release the nutrients, they are then available to plants.
Biological Name :
2 x 108 cfu / ml.
Role in Soil Biology :
Root Rot & Wilt fighting Bacteria.
- Induces resistance in roots & shoots.
- Induces systemic resistance in the host plant, so it can better resist attack by a true pathogen.
- Outcompetes other (pathogenic) soil microbes, e.g., by siderophores, giving a competitive advantage at scavenging for iron.
- Works to degrade chemical pesticides.
Dose & Application :
Soil : 2 Ltrs per acre to the roots by drench/drip fertigation in 200 Ltrs water.
Foliar : 5ml / Ltr of water.
For best results, give along with :
All-in-One 2ml / Ltr of water as food starters in Foliar Application.
