Soil health is fundamental to profitable and sustainable agriculture. Vital organic matter and nutrients are often destroyed, depleted, or otherwise lost from the soil through overuse of fertilizers, erosion, and runoff as a consequence of unsustainable farming practices.
We harness nature’s technology to bring new solutions to modern agriculture. Our microbial soil enhancers and organic nutrients are a proprietary scientific blend of microorganism and organic nutrients that complement each other to promote soil quality, plant health, and fertility in several ways:
- Biological Nitrogen Fixation – the process of assimilating atmospheric nitrogen into organic compounds, especially by microorganisms.
- Phosphate Solubilization – the process of solubilizing bound phosphate in the soil and making it available for uptake by plants.
- Mobilization and Mineralization – the process of mobilizing and mineralization of soil nutrients such as salt, phosphate, magnesium, and calcium into a form that is easily used by the plant.
- Phytohormone Production – Which is the process of using carbon sequestration to increase healthy plant hormones and storing carbon in the soil which drastically increases the amount of available nitrate nitrogen.
- Saprophytic Competence – saprophytes live on dead or decomposing matter. They help the microbes in MicrobeBio® products to compete with native soil microbes, allowing them to better perform their intended functions.
- Soil pH – MicrobeBio® products promote optimal soil pH under extreme environmental condition.
- Reducing the Salinity in Soil – MicrobeBio® is a biological soil conditioner that is used to reduce the effects of soil salinity, which is how much salt content is in the soil. It achieves this through the use of bacteria.
Why and how do our microbial fertilizers work?
Let us help explain how plants, minerals and soil life work together to allow you to grow the most nutrient dense food possible and how our billions of microbes help make this process easier and more efficient.
The microbes, especially Azotobacter, found in microbial fertilizer naturally convert nitrogen from the air into usable nutrition for the soil. They also produce siderophores, which are small, high-affinity iron chelating compounds secreted by microorganisms, making iron available for plant uptake. The Pseudomonas, Lactobacillus, and Trichodema found in our product solubilize Phosphate, Molyndenum, Boron, Carbon, and Iron; and the Bacilli solubilize Silicate and Zinc, making all of these rich nutrients available for plant health and growth. Besides, Bacillus, Clostridium, and Azotobacter, which are known to produce a variety of extracellular enzymes that break down organic matter in the soil to provide the best nutrients essential to plant growth.
Plants are complex organisms that require many different forms of nutrients. There are 17 nutrients that are essential for plant health. The primary macronutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium,) secondary macronutrients (Magnesium, Sulfur, Calcium,) micronutrients (Boron, Chlorine, Manganese, Iron, Nickel, Copper, Zinc, Molybdenum) and Non-mineral elements (Hydrogen, Carbon, Oxygen) are all nutrients needed for optimal growth and a healthy plant. It’s all about the biology of the soil and here is why it is so important.
Macronutrients: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. They are the most frequently required in a crop fertilization program.
Our microbial fertilizer has microorganism strain – Azotobacter that helps provide more nitrogen for plants through Nitrogen Fixation. This is the process of taking about 74,000 tonnes of the unusable nitrogen from the air and converting it into organic compounds that plants and organisms can use.
Nitrogen (N) is important for plants and other living things. It plays a crucial role in plants and is responsible for chlorophyll synthesis and in the process needed to make protein. Most nitrogen is unavailable to plants because it is in a gas state in the atmosphere.
Our microbial fertilizer contain Bacillus Subtilis that helps plants receive the amount of phosphorus they need to thrive. Our product accomplishes this through phosphate solubilization which is the process of solubilizing bound phosphate in the soil and making it available for uptake by plants.
Phosphorus is known to play a part in photosynthesis, transfer, respiration, cell division, enlargement, and energy storage. It boosts early root information and growth. Phosphorus helps improve the quality of fruits, vegetables, and grains. It plays a vital role for seeds, increases water-use efficiency, and accelerates maturity. Finally, Phosphorus helps plants against the harsh winter conditions.
The microorganisms in MicrobeBio® solubilize potassium, which is the process of breaking down potassium making is available to plants, and make it easier for plants to absorb it.
Potassium is another essential nutrient that plants need in order to be healthy. It is vital to photosynthesis, protein synthesis and many other plant functions. Potassium builds cellulose and helps translocate sugars and starches. It also has a major impact on the plants size, shape, color, taste and other quality related measurements. Having enough potassium can also increase root growth and increase drought resistance.
Secondary Nutrients: Magnesium, Sulfur, and Calcium…. For most crops, these three are needed in lesser amounts then the primary nutrients. They are growing in importance in crop fertilization programs due to more stringent clean air standards and efforts to improve the environment.
Magnesium is important to a plants health. Magnesium is in every molecule of chlorophyll which means it is actively involved in photosynthesis. It also aids in phosphate metabolism, plant respiration and the activation of many enzyme systems. Magnesium is needed to capture the sun’s energy for growth and production through photosynthesis.
Like many other nutrients, most magnesium is not available for plants. Microbes take this unusable magnesium and convert it into a compound that plants can absorb. MicrobeBio® microbes will ensure plants get the right amount of magnesium that they need.
Sulfur is an important nutrient that plants receive through soil, but can also enter plant leaves as dioxide. Sulfur is needed for synthesis of certain amino acids and proteins, photosynthesis, seed production, nitrogen fixation and is also useful for winter crop hardiness.
However, most sulfur in the soil is tied up in organic matter and cannot be absorbed by plants. This leads to the problem of plants not having enough sulfur. Our microbial fertilizer help break up this matter and convert the sulfur in the organic matter into a compound that is easy for plants to absorb and use.
Calcium is an important nutrient for plants because it is essential for their structure. Much like we need calcium for strong bones, plants need calcium to develop strong cell walls. This enables plants to stand upright and be better protected. Calcium also helps with cellular signaling which is a biological process critical to a plants healthy development. Deficiency in calcium can have negative effects on plant growth. Most calcium compounds found in the soil are insoluble and plants can’t use them. Our microbial fertilizer help by taking the insoluble calcium and turning it into a soluble compound that plants can use.
The Micronutrients: Boron, Chlorine, Manganese, Iron, Nickel, Copper, Zinc, and Molybdenum…. These plant food elements are used in very small amounts, but they are just as important to plant development and profitable crop production as the major nutrients. Especially since they work “behind the scenes” as activators of many important plant functions.
|Boron is vital to plant health because it plays a key role in forming and strengthening cell walls. Boron also has an impact on the uptake of potassium and phosphorus. Boron is also one of the nutrients that usually has the biggest deficiency in plants. Deficiency in Boron affects the cell walls and reproductive organs of plants. Severe deficiency can lead to stunted growth and death of growth tissue.
Our microbial fertilizer go into the soil and any insoluble Boron is broke down and made into a soluble matter that plants can absorb.
Chlorine has a number of benefits for plant growth and is an essential nutrient for plants despite the fact it is classified as a micronutrient. It plays a key role along with potassium in the proper function of the plants stomatal openings. This allows plants to control their internal water balance. Chloride (Chloride element that plants absorb) also helps with the hydrolysis process in photosynthesis. Most chloride found in soil is soluble, but Our microbial fertilizer can be used in soil where the chloride is not soluble and help make it accessible to plants.
Manganese is used in plants as a major factor to various systems including photosynthesis, respiration and nitrogen assimilation. It is also involved in the process for pollen tube growth, pollen germination and resistance to root pathogens. Deficiency in Manganese can stunt growth, cause yellow leaves and cause sunken spots to appear. Our microbial fertilizer help break down Manganese in the soil, making it available for plants to take in.
Iron is essential for plant growth and food production and is a key nutrient needed for energy transfer, nitrogen reduction and fixation and lignin formation. Plants also need iron in order to move oxygen through their system and keep their leaves green. Deficiency in iron can cause yellow leaves with green veins also known as chlorosis. Our microbial fertilizer help plants receive the nutrients needed by getting iron from the soil (sourced from water or fertilizer) and making is accessible to plants.
Copper is used to activate enzymes in plants that are involved in lignin synthesis and it is also essential for many other enzyme systems. Copper is used in photosynthesis and also serves to intensify flavor and color in vegetables and color in flowers. Deficiency in Copper can cause new leaves to grow smaller, lose their sheen and eventually wilt. Our microbial fertilizer help provide copper to plants by finding and creating copper compounds that are usable by plants.
Zinc is used to activate enzymes that are responsible for the synthesis of certain proteins. It is also used in the conversion of starches to sugars, the formation of chlorophyll and some carbohydrates, to help withstand cold temperatures and helps in the formation of auxins which help with growth regulation and stem elongation. Deficiency in Zinc leads to chlorosis and new leaves are often cupped upward or distorted. Our microbial fertilizer help plants get the amount of Zinc they need by breaking down organic matter that contains Zinc and making it available for plants to use
Molybdenum is an important nutrient that is used in two enzymes that convert nitrate into nitrite and then into ammonia before it is used to synthesize amino acids throughout the plant. Plants also use Molybdenum to convert inorganic phosphorus into organic forms and by symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria in legumes to fix atmospheric nitrogen. Our microbial fertilizer help by turning Molybdenum into a soluble form that plants can use.
Non-mineral elements, Hydrogen, Carbon and Oxygen that are extracted from air and water to make up the bulk of plant weight.
Hydrogen is an important compound for plants and is one of three that make up a majority of the plant. Hydrogen is needed in order to complete biochemical reactions. Hydrogen is mostly derived from water which means most hydrogen that a plant comes into contact with should be soluble so the plant can use it right away.
Carbon is a crucial compound needed for plant growth and is one of three compounds that make up the majority of plant mass. Carbon is needed in every living and plants are no exception. Plants take CO2 from the air and use the carbon from it for energy. This energy is then used to build essential biological compounds such as carbohydrates and proteins.
Our microbial fertilizer help build carbon in the soil through carbon sequestration, which is the process of taking CO2 from the air and converting it into a solid state for long term storage. This creates more organic matter and carbon in the soil which causes microbes to begin a mineralization process and transition all carbon sources into plant available fertilization such as nitrate nitrogen.
Oxygen is an important compound needed in plants and is one of three compounds that make up the majority of plant mass. Oxygen is responsible for cellular respiration in plants. Plants get oxygen by breaking down CO2 during photosynthesis and releasing the majority of it as byproduct, while keeping a small portion for future energy. Our microbial fertilizer help increase the amount of oxygen available to plants through carbon sequestration, which stores CO2 in the soil until it is needed
Here is a small example how our microbial fertilizer can convert all compound and complex nutrients for optimal corn growth and health. The microbes, especially Azotobacter, found in Microbial Fertilizer naturally convert nitrogen from the air into usable nutrition for the soil. They also produce siderophores, which are small, high-affinity iron chelating compounds secreted by microorganisms, making iron available for plant uptake. The Pseudomonas, Lactobacillus, and Trichodema found in our product solubilize Phosphate, Molyndenum, Boron, Carbon, and Iron; and the Bacilli solubilize Silicate and Zinc, making all of these rich nutrients available for plant health and growth. Besides, Bacillus, Clostridium, and Azotobacter, which are known to produce a variety of extracellular enzymes that break down organic matter in the soil to provide the best nutrients essential to plant growth.
