The use of corn biofertilizer has increased in recent years, along with the increased use of biofertilizers in general.
Here’s the definition of biofertilizer from Wikipedia.
A Bio fertilizer (also bio-fertilizer) is a substance which contains living microorganisms which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces, or soil, colonizes the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant.
For corn biofertilizers the major benefits to the plant are:
- Larger, more developed roots and root system. (see picture)
- Reduced Stress from High Moisture
- Overall Healthier Plant
- Increased Corn Yield
- Less traditional fertilizer (N.P.K) used.
- Better nutrient uptake.
Corn biofertilizers may be applied as a seed treatment or in furrow after planting. Both methods have shown favorable results.
