Components of product
Azotobacter chroococcum: a nitrogen fixing bacterium that supplies the plant with sufficient nitrogen during the whole vegetation period.
Azospirillum brasilense: a nitrogen fixing bacterium that bears temperatures above 40°C and this way the plant is supplied with nitrogen during the hot summer periods as well.
Bacillus megaterium: phosphorus mobilizing bacterium that stimulates the reproduction of cellulose decomposing bacteria and the formation of potassium.
Coniothyrium minitans fungus: eliminates Sclerotinia in the soil. After proper treatment soil will be infection free.
Biological control against fungal pathogens
As the Coniothyrium minitans fungus grows in its natural habitat on the root surface, it affects root diseases, such as Sclerotinia, by consuming it. Coniothyrium minitans fungus stays in the soil as long as it can find Sclerotinia fungus to be consumed, in other cases it perishes.
The positive vital effect of Coniothyrium minitans fungus on plants can be seen in bigger and heavier roots, higher yield, higher head and seed rate as well as elevated kernel weight. Coniothyrium minitans fungus strengthens furthermore the stress resistance of plant.
