there are beneficial microbes available for the following sectors...
Who Are We...Established in 2015 our company was set-up to offer something different for growers and users looking for answers to new challenges being raised, by the steady withdrawal of harmful man-made products that have been employed, in managing a range of troublesome issues.
Some issues to consider...In the last 100 years or so, humanity has generally been negatively affecting many microbial balances within our environment through man-made inputs (Chemicals, Medicines, Fertilisers, etc). This has happened to such an extent that urgent action now needs to be taken for the sake of sustaining life systems on our planet.
Going back to nature...Micro-biologicals have been in existence for around 3.7 billion years and during this time, nature has found a balance through them, to support all life on Earth.
Beneficial microbes, when harnessed correctly, are useful for many different purposes. In order for man to harness those microbes that are useful involves specialist research, development, in-field trialling and production.
Currently, a number of organisations have the know-how and facilities to carry out these crucial processes to the high standards required. There are a number of key considerations that are vitally important to take into account regarding any man-made microbial product, these are:
All types of beneficial microbe must be classified via a system that indicates their Genus, Species and Strain. These 3 important criteria are vital to qualify the identity and the beneficial properties of each microbe type.
The number of microbes is best indicated by a concentration amount per unit weight or per unit volume. This is most usefully indicated as Colony Forming Units (CFU) per g, per kg, per ml or per L. The CFU rating expresses the number of viable and active micro-organisms present.
The purity of a microbial product is a crucial, often underestimated, element. Having the micro-organisms in a stable and regular state with no contaminants requires specialist knowledge and state-of-the-art production facilities.
Many microbial products are created to contain living forms of the required organisms, with sufficient numbers to achieve their purpose. It is therefore, essential that they are provided with an effective life support system, which can maintain their stability, regularity, numbers and viability (in transit and storage), whilst continuing to maintain a lack of contaminants. This is achieved through the specialist formulation of the product which requires very specific expertise.
The correct preparation of microbial products, which often involves dilution with water to aid administration, is very important. This is because it is possible to then maintain the protection of all the components that correct formulation has protected prior to supply to end users. More awareness is needed about what is to be achieved and how to use the products to get the best out of them. Caution must always be exercised regarding what else microbe products might be mixed with or come into contact with, such as mixing fungal products with fungicides or bacterial products with bactericides, which is not good practice.
It is essential that microbial products are applied correctly in order to get the best out of them. It is often the case that failure of a product is found to be down to poor application and this is especially true for many microbe containing products. It is vital that close attention is paid to individual product labels and all available technical information for each product to make sure all good guidance is known, so it can be followed and mistakes or misuse can be avoided. Always plan well to put the microbes in the correct way and in the right place at the right time.
