OUR PRODUCTS

The use of Microbial Solutions’ products give rise to healthier soils and enhanced plant growth. Research has shown that when our microbes are used as a foundation on all crops there is improved plant utilisation of agricultural chemicals and fertilisers, thereby cutting input costs and reducing soil contamination. Soils tend to have less diseases, less compaction, better water retention, increased drainage, and after a few seasons lands tend to work far easier in turn reducing the amount of wear and tear on equipment and in diesel required per hectare.

SOYBEAN INOCULANT

Soybean, as a legume, has the ability to fix its own nitrogen, but it can’t really do it all on its own. It needs the help of a special type of bacteria: Bradyrhizobium Japonicum. If a soybean plant is to grow to its full potential, it must be surrounded by these beneficial bacteria. Soil already has some bacteria present in it, but it is often less than the plant is able to fully utilize. So, to push the soybean plant to its maximum production capacity, inoculants are often incorporated on the seed to ensure that there are enough bacteria to help the plant meet its full potential. The inoculant is applied at the seed box or in the furrow, placing the B. Japonicum in a usable area around the plant. The bacteria aid the plant in producing nodules, or sites on the root that are responsible for fixing nitrogen. As the plant grows, it continually benefits from its mutual relationship with the bacteria, resulting in a stronger, more productive crop.

BIO STIMULANTS

Biostimulants are products that reduce the need for fertilizers and increase plant growth, resistance to water and abiotic stresses. In small concentrations, these substances are efficient, favoring the good performance of the plant’s vital processes, and allowing high yields and good quality products. In addition, biostimulants applied to plants enhance nutrition efficiency, abiotic stress tolerance and/or plant quality traits, regardless of its nutrient contents. Several researches have been developed in order to evaluate the biostimulants in improving plant development subjected to stresses, saline environment, and development of seedlings, among others. Furthermore, various raw materials have been used in biostimulant compositions, such as humic acids, hormones, algae extracts, and plant growth-promoting bacteria. In this sense, this chapter aims to approach the use of biostimulants in plant growth according to the raw material used in their compositions as well as their effects on plants subjected to abiotic stresses.

FIRSTBASE

SEED

Firstbase® seed is an ultra-high strength combination of bacillius bacteria, especially formulated to assist with seed germination and plant vigour. As a powerful bio-fertiliser it chelates minerals and produces ATP, the enzyme responsible for nutrient uptake into the plant. In addition it produces the vital hormones essential for effective root and plant growth. Surviving on the seed for 2 years firstbase® seed allows the farmer added peace of mind.

FIRSTBASE G

A unique fertilizer treatment formulation that addresses all aspects of biofertilisation. It is formulated to function on all different soil types, different crops, and under all climatic conditions. It is the ideal fertiliser treatment for every use on every type of plant.

HUMIC & FULVIC

ACID

Humic and fulvic acids are both humic substances (along with humin). However, there are a few key differences that impact their benefits and how each are best applied. In short, they vary regarding carbon and oxygen content, acidity, degree of polymerization, molecular weight, and color. Humic acids are large molecules that function best in soil to provide an optimal growing environment. Fulvic acids are much smaller molecules that work well in both soil and foliar applications, where they transfer vital nutrients through the cell membrane of plants. They work in tandem to help boost plant help and increase crop yields.

GENESIS HUMATE

LIQUID / GRANULES

Genesis® leonardite humates is commonly used in conjunction with Microbial Solutions' bio-fertiliser range. Not only does the leonardite serve as a food source for the bacillius, but also supplies 196 different organic acids (fulvic acids, humic acids, amino acids etc.) which these microbes need to produce growth hormone and protein.

SEED LUBRICANT

The development of seeds coated with treatments, such as insecticides and fungicides, have led to challenges that interfere with flowability during planting. To combat this issue, many growers add talc and/or graphite to the batches of seeds they plant.

Talc is added as a dry lubricant that also acts as a drying agent. Seeds coated with insecticides and fungicides tend to quickly absorb water from the air that moves through planters. When this happens their surfaces become sticky, which can cause clumping and bridging in seed hoppers, and clinging to seed disks in seed meters.

The more humid the environment, the greater the problem becomes. "The coatings on seeds get rougher and stickier when they absorb moisture," says Kelby Krueger, product specialist at John Deere. "Talc fills the pores, smoothes and dries the surfaces of the seeds, and improves flowability."

Like talc, graphite also provides the benefits of a dry lubricant. But as a conductor, its strength is in its ability to reduce static electricity and friction that can lead to clumping and bridging, as well as excess wear on equipment. "Static electricity can be a big problem with some seeds," says Daryl Cress, service manager at Great Plains Manufacturing, a leader in seeding equipment. "It varies between different types of seeds, seed coatings, and conditions. Milo and canola seem to have the worst problems for some reason.

TRICHODERMA

Trichoderma spp. are fungi that are present in nearly all soils and other diverse habitats. In soil, they frequently are the most prevalent culturable fungi.

They are favored by the presence of high levels of plant roots, which they colonize readily. Some strains are highly rhizosphere competent, i.e., able to colonize and grow on roots as they develop. The most strongly rhizosphere competent strains can be added to soil or seeds by any method. Once they come into contact with roots, they colonize the root surface or cortex, depending on the strain. Thus, if added as a seed treatment, the best strains will colonize root surfaces even when roots a meter or more below the soil surface and they can persist at useful numbers up to 18 months after application. However, most strains lack this ability.

In addition to colonizing roots, Trichoderma spp. attack, parasitize and otherwise gain nutrition from other fungi. Since Trichoderma spp. grow and proliferate best when there are abundant healthy roots, they have evolved numerous mechanisms for both attack of other fungi and for enhancing plant and root growth. Several new general methods for both biocontrol and for causing enhancement of plant growth have recently been demonstrated and it is now clear that there must be hundreds of separate genes and gene products involved in these processes.
