Feed & Fertilizer
AgriGro’s proprietary blend of essential macro and micronutrients, enzymes and amino acids improve soil conditions, speed emergence and enhance nutrient uptake. Over time, AgriGro products recondition the structure, drainage and tilth of soil, while increasing the amount of plant-available N, P, K and micronutrients. AgriGro has applied its expertise in plant biology to feed nutrition designed to strengthen livestock health and improve raising environments. AgriGro biotechnology now also serves the commercial turf and residential home garden industries.
Azolla is unique because it is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet – yet it does not need any soil to grow. Unlike almost all other plants, Azolla is able to get its nitrogen fertilizer directly from the atmosphere. That means that it is able to produce biofertilizer, livestock feed, food and biofuel exactly where they are needed and, at the same time, draw down large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere, thus helping to reduce the threat of climate change.
Agribiotics with SumaGrow
Vital organic matter and soil nutrients are often destroyed and mined out because of the overuse of chemical inputs, soil erosion, nutrient runoff, and unsustainable farming practices. SumaGrow's microbial formulation is 1000 times more concentrated than current microbial inoculates on the market and 92% more cost effective. It restores and maintains soil health and fertility. SumaGrow can increase crop yields, reduce fertilizer dependence, and increase the nutritional values of food and forage crops.
What's in it?
Bacillus subtilis, known also as the hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium, found in soil and the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants and humans. A member of the genus Bacillus, B. subtilis is rod-shaped, and can form a tough, protective endospore, allowing it to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though evidence exists that it is a facultative aerobe. B. subtilis is considered the best studied gram positive bacterium and a model organism to study bacterial chromosome replication and cell differentiation. It is one of the bacterial champions in secreted enzyme production and used on an industrial scale by biotechnology companies.
Pseudomonas putida is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped, saprotrophic soil bacterium. The diverse metabolism of wild-type strains of P. putida may be exploited for bioremediation; for example, it has been shown in the laboratory to function as a soil inoculant to remedy naphthalene-contaminated soils. P. putida has demonstrated potential biocontrol properties, as an effective antagonist of damping off diseases such as Pythium and Fusarium.
Rhizobium Trifolii + Rhizobium leguminosarum is a genus of Gram-negative soil bacteria that fix nitrogen. Rhizobium forms an endosymbiotic nitrogen fixing association with roots of legumes and Parasponia. The bacteria colonize plant cells within root nodules; here the bacteria convert atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia and then provide organic nitrogenous compounds such as glutamine or ureides to the plant. The plant provides the bacteria with organic compounds made by photosynthesis.
Trichoderma virens + Trichoderma harzianum is a genus of fungi that is present in all soils, where they are the most prevalent cultivable fungi. Many species in this genus can be characterized as opportunistic avirulent plant symbionts. This refers to the ability of several Trichoderma species to form mutualistic endophytic relationships with several plant species.
Azotobacter vinelandii is gram-negative diazotroph that can fix nitrogen while grown aerobically. It is a genetically tractable system that is used to study nitrogen fixation. These bacteria are easily cultured and grown. A. vinelandii is a free-living N2 fixer known to produce many phytohormones and vitamins in soils. It produces fluorescent pyoverdine pigments.
