Benefits For Plants

DIRECT MECHANISM

Increases uptake of minerals

Increases the bioavailability of nitrogen

Promotes plant growth


Modulate plant growth hormone levels

INDIRECT MECHANISM

Produces siderophores, which make iron available to the plant

Increases systemic resistance to disease

Fights Fusarium Rhizoctonia, Pythium, Botrytis and

many more plant pathogens

Bacteria become a food source for the plant at cell death stage

Benefits For Soil

Improves nutrient availability by increasing the cationic exchange capacity

Improves water retention

Increases pH

Increases physical and chemical stability of soil

Decreases nitrogen, nitrate, nitrite and phosphate run off by capturing nutrients

Further Benefits For Plants

The use of plant growth promoting bacteria results in increased yields, better root systems, bushier plants with more vitality, greener leaves, enhanced disease resistance and enhanced tolerance to atmospheric stressors. This ultimately leads to a reduction in the requirement for pesticide and fertiliser usage for growers.
Initial field analysis showed a 12% increased yields for barley and a statistically significant increase in yield of alfalfa over two years. Broccoli trials to date have shown a 42% increase in yield. Tomato trials showed a statistically significant increase in yield and Brix index (taste, odour). 

Trial data and further information are available upon request.
