From the test tube to the fields


Experts note that the pace of agricultural production has slowed down and, in some cases, has not been sustained with the growing demand for production. Farmers need innovations that can stabilize agricultural production processes.

The new generation of farmers wants to use not only modern technologies for the development of crop production technologies, but also use natural micro- organisms.

Modern scientific methods make it possible to quickly evaluate the effectiveness of one or the other microorganisms and improve the technologies of their use. Recent research data on microorganisms in humans have revolutionized the production of probiotics, as well as revolutionary solutions in agriculture through the use of good microorganisms.


No one asks, is it possible to replace chemistry with biology or increase fertilizer efficiency? In nature, plants evolved together with microorganisms in the root zone, on leaves and even in cells. Plants provide micro-organisms with nutrients, and the latter make non-accessible nutrients available to plants and help plants protect themselves against pathogens and pests. However, the introduction of a large amount of chemicals and intensive work on land resulted in the destruction of a small link between plants and micro-organisms and the destruction of many good micro-organism strains. Microorganisms are very important for any agrocenosis, even if highly effective technologies are developed, scientists say that the significance of microorganisms will not grow, and vice versa.

Bioenergy LT specialists, along with scientists, have focused on increasing the availability of phosphorus to plants. Phosphorus is not a coincidence, because it is very essential for plant growth. It will often be said that it breaks sufficient phosphorus fertilizer before sowing. However, about 70% phosphorus binds to soil particles and the necessary element for plants becomes inaccessible to them. Plants must obtain nutrients when they are most needed, one of the ways of planting - the beneficial soil microorganisms. Bioenergy has developed the Fosfix product over several years, which contains bacteria that release phosphorus well and transfer it to an affordable form of plants. Bacteria do this by isolating specific substances that break down the connections between phosphorus and soil.

Every year more researchers say that microorganisms will help feed the world. Due to this, Bioenergy LT specialists pay much attention to the soil micro-organisms that increase the efficiency of the absorption of nutrients (Azofix, Fosfix), but microorganisms can also help other farmers through the use of fertilizers. At the end of the Fosfix tests, a new Nutrilife product, which reduces plant stresses to adverse agents, especially drought, has started to be developed and passed through tubes last year. Microorganisms and enzymes present in the preparation generate energy that stimulates the physiological processes in plants, allowing plants to grow under adverse conditions. NutriLife makes the plant "activate" protective functions and survive stress.

In general, we recommend that farmers work consistently, since combining biological products can stimulate plant growth. Knowing the properties of the preparations, combinations that initiate initial growth can be prepared, such combinations of preparations are most often used for seed hopping. One of the most popular combinations in recent years that activates fast and even seed germination is Bactoforce, Fosfix and MaxProlin.

Some people think that microbiological preparations are a new phenomenon, but they have been used in advanced countries for a long time. For decades, farmers have been using symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria to grow bean plants. It is often difficult to convince farmers to use the next generation of preparations. Older generations and cheaper products are introduced with uncertain combinations of bacteria and have a lot of uses for which they are effective. As a result, we often hear that it is an agricultural placebo. As a result, farmers should be courageous to use the next generation of biologically active beneficial micro-organism preparations. One example of this could be germinal bacteria. Experienced that previous generations are less effective and difficult to use, farmers opt for another route, sow beans and fertilize with nitrogen fertilizers. Then the philosophy of cultivating it as a soil improver becomes meaningless. The new generation of AzofixRhizos, which can be sprayed onto the soil before sowing or with herbicides after sowing and even sprouting to plants, is currently developed and used. The greatest effect is obtained by preparing and dispersing a combination of AzofixRhiz and Fosfix, and this combination can also be sprayed with other soil improvers.

How to explain such changes? At the research centers and in our factory laboratory, we use the latest microbiological methods that highlight certain properties of microorganisms, which means that we can produce strains of microorganisms with the most needed properties.

It must be recognized that the production and testing of microorganisms in a limited area is one, and the introduction into the production of another. The real challenge is to make preparations for large areas, transport, store them so that they do not lose their properties for a long time and spray microorganisms activated and work under different climatic conditions. As a result, many preparations at the Bioenergy plant still have a long way to go from the test tube to the outside.

When people think of microorganisms, imagery depicts illnesses. However, many microorganisms are useful and we practically can not live without them. Quite a long time we ignored the benefits of beneficial microorganisms to agriculture. The rapid growth of interest in microbiological products suggests that in the future agriculture will be less dependent on chemistry.

The future of the production of agricultural produce - the world of microorganisms hidden behind our feet.
