Microorganisms for Agriculture :
Microorganisms as biofertilizers, biopesticides and decomposing agents.
An effective combination of naturally occurring beneficial microorganisms
- Increases availability of nutrients for healthy growth & higher yields
- Controls soil and root invading pathogens and pests
- Restores friendly soil microflora
- Suitable for all crops
Nature has endowed soil with its own system of fighting diseases. The beneficial microbes that overpower the disease causing microbes, helping plants grow healthy and disease-free to give higher yields of superior quality. However, the indiscriminate use of chemicals and fertilizers and manipulation of other soil conditions cause unbalanced microbial populations. As a result soil loses its ability to fight disease-causing pathogens and yields fall.
The solution is to supplement soil with a large number of naturally occurring beneficial soil microbes, which help the crops grow vogorously and fight diseases.
Vitagro is a concentrate of carefully selected soil microorganisms with proven ability. It contains a blend of the most well known beneficial naturally occurring microorganisms to give strength and stability to crops.
The microbes in Vitagro are isolated from the soil, their natural habitat. They are presented in their naturally occurring form and are not genetically engineered. The product contains the claimed strength of organisms because of strict quality assurance.
The advantage : 15,00,000 Million Colony Forming Units (CFU) and a long shelf life.
Vitagro contains active microorganisms, which multiply very rapidly. They form new colonies of good soil microbes, which compete and preemptively consume the same resources (nutrients, Oxygen etc.) and also aid in restoring other beneficial local microflora. This process of competitive exclusion lowers and controls the population of harmful pathogens like Fusarium, Phytophthora, Rhizoctinia, Pythium, red rot, die back, pseudomonas, Xanthomonas and other root-borne diseases and even nematodes.
Phosphorus is a major nutrient for inducing vigorous growth and also contributing to their disease resistance. Only 10-15% of phosphate applied is utilized by the plants. The balance 85-90% remains in insoluble from in the soil – PSB(Phosphate Solubilising Bacteria) grow and secrete organic acids, which dissolve this unavailable phosphate into soluble from and make it available to the plants. Thus, the residual phosphatic fertilizers in the soil can be well utilized and external application can be optimized.
Green manures and sugarcane trash are popularly applied to soil as organic manures. Unless suitable soil microbes are present, the plant material is not easily decomposed. Vitagro consists of rapidly growing microbes that produce various enzymes to decompose cellulose and other plant material into easily degradable or gradable organic matter.
Vitagro promotes the growth of desirable soil microbes and creates a conducive “microenvironment” in root-zone. This in turn helps in the conversion of soil elements including phosphorus into plant- available from, stimulating root growth and efficient nutrient uptake resulting in vigorous plant growth.
Vitagro improves the soil structure by decomposing soil organics and increasing humus level in the soil, in turn helping in better moisture retention and improve buffering properties of the soil.
Vitagro is an ideal input for organic farming of fruits, vegetables & spices
