Paenibacillus – Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria


Nitrogen fixing bacteria help plants grow.

Paenibacillus is a  Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria  that increases the nitrogen content of the soil. Custom N2  contains a nitrogen fixing bacteria Paenibacillus polymyxa. This beneficial soil bacteria takes atmospheric nitrogen (N2) and converts it to ammonium. The ammonium is then usable to the plant.

Nitrogen fixation is a vital process for the plant as nitrogen is a key element in plant growth.

Custom N2 improves root size and root health. This healthier root allows the plant to take up additional nutrients thereby improving overall yield and quality of the crop.

Green Soybean Case Study

Green soybean, called edamame in the United States, needs a large quantity of nitrogen to grow and produce crop. In this case study, we added Custom N2 and had a much larger yield of edamame.

Custom N2 Improves Roots

Use of Custom N2, improves roots in green soybeans, edamame, and other crops. Notice  the case study in the final picture, the root on the right has been treated with Custom N2. The root on the right is the untreated control. The treated root is larger and has more offshoots. It’s easy to see why this treated plant will thrive and perform better than the untreated plant.
