Probiotics and Rice

Field Trials


Probiotics and Rice field trial information. The soil probiotic used in the field trial is Biota Max™. Soil probiotics are sometimes called biofertilizers or biological soil amendments.

Biota Max

Biota Max™ is a soil probiotic containing beneficial soil microbes, both beneficial soil bacteria and beneficial soil fungi. Biota Max™ is a unique, effervescent tablet  that dissolves easily and quickly in water. Once dissolved, each Biota Max tablet will treat 1/4 acre (or 1/10 hectare) with billions of beneficial microorganisms.

Soil Probiotics and Plant Roots

These beneficial soil microorganisms help the plant grow larger, healthier root systems.These larger, healthier roots help grow bigger and more productive rice plants. Healthier roots help plants take in and process more nutrients and take up more water. A more efficient uptake of fertilizers and water means less waste and less runoff. Typically, using Biota Max™ also reduces  the amount of Nitrogen needed.

I’ve attached the soil probiotics and rice field trials below. A couple of interesting things to note.

  • The roots in the untreated versus treated with Biota Max™ – great pictures of bigger, healthier roots.
  • The yield increases in the treated versus untreated. In fact, the rice yield increased 11.3%, 16.6%, or 26.8% depending on the treatment method.
  • The overall health and look of the plants.
