Body

The PGPR microorganisms are used in modern agricultural practices with positive outcomes.

1. RhiZoBas WP (Approval EM 735.E)

RhiZoBas is based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial soil Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. It is a plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria. B. amyloliquefaciens has been documented to positively affect plants in a number of different ways. RhiZoBas is commonly found attached to roots and the plant rhizosphere, the area immediately surrounding the roots. This bacterial localization reflects the fact that plant roots commonly exude a significant fraction of the carbon that is fixed by photosynthesis and provide this fixed carbon to soil microbes that use it as a food source.

Agronomic value

As a consequence of treating plants with RhiZoBas, any one or more of the following may be observed:

  1. Increased biomass
  2. Increased nitrogen, phosphorus, or iron content
  3. Increased root and/or shoot length
  4. Enhanced seed germination
  5. Increased tolerance to various environmental stresses;
  6. Increased production of useful secondary metabolites
  7. Decompose organic matter towards humus

Note: RhiZoBas can be used in organic farming. In accordance with Regulation CE 834/2007.

2. Tri-as WP (Approval EM 736.A)

Tri-as contains a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial soil fungus, Trichoderma harzianum. It is a Plant Growth Promoting Fungi. Tri-as has been documented to positively affect plants in a number of different ways. Tri-as is commonly found attached to roots and the plant rhizosphere, the area immediately surrounds the roots. This fungal localization reflects the fact that plant roots commonly exude a significant fraction of the carbon that is fixed by photosynthesis and provide this fixed carbon to soil microbes that use it as a food source.

Composition

  1. Trichoderma harzianum (>1E+09 conidia/g)
  2. Fermentable natural carbohydrates

Note: Tri-as can be used in organic farming. In accordance with Regulation CE834/2007.

Agronomic value

As a consequence of treating plants with Tri-as, any one or more of the following may be observed:

  • Improved plant growth, increased biomass
  • Enhanced seed germination, increase root and seedlings elongation
  • Improved nutrient availability
