products that contain both bacteria and fungi.

Soil Probiotics

Soil probiotics help plants grow healthier root systems by improving the condition of the soil. Soil microbes are known to produce number of beneficial compounds that help stimulate root growth and root size. Soil microorganism also improve nutrient uptake of important plant nutrients such as Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus.

Here’s the list of soil probiotics manufactured by Custom Biologicals.

Bacillus Subtilis Plant Growth Promoter

Bacillus Subtilis Plant Growth Promoter

 

Bacillus subtilis plant growth promoter is a phrase that we’ll discuss in this post.

Bacillus subtilis plant growth promoter

Bacillus subtilis

It is well known that number of beneficial soil microorganisms, like Bacillus subtilis, act as plant growth promoters, also called synergistic plant promotion.

B. subtilis produces plant hormones and solubilizes insoluble forms of phosphates. This makes the phosphate, a necessary chemical in plant growth, available to the plant.

Custom B5, a biofertilizer, contains five species of beneficial soil bacteria including B. subtilis. 

Bacillus subtilis produces Auxins

One of the ways that B.subtilis promotes plant growth is by the production (biosynthesis) of plant hormones such as auxins. Auxin was derived from the greek word auxein which means to grow.

Auxins were the first plant hormones discovered. Auxins have a number of effects on plants including:

  • Stimulates cell elongation
  • Delays fruit ripening
  • Auxin is required for fruit formation
  • Stimulates the xylem and phloem
  • Auxin promotes root initiation and formation.

By producing auxins, B. subtilis helps the plant grow and develop. Since both the plant and the soil microorganism benefit, this relationship is called synergistic or sometimes the term probiotic is used. Either way, the soil microorganisms perform an invaluable service to the plant.

Bacillus subtilis solubilizes insoluble phosphate

The second major reason for the phrase Bacillus subtilis plant growth promoter is the ability to solubilize phosphate. Insoluble phosphate is generally inaccessible to the plant. The root system simply cannot absorb it. B. subtilis, however, solubilizes the phosphate making it accessible to the plant.

Soil microorganisms, such as B. subtilis, are essential to plant health and plant growth. The synergistic relationship between the soil bacteria and the plant roots is a vital one for both parties.

Commercial Products containing B. Subtilis

Custom Biologicals manufactures three agricultural products that contain B. subtilis.

Custom Biologicals is expert in the use of beneficial soil bacteria such as B. subtilis, sometimes called B. Sub or B. Sub bacteria.

Custom manufactures a wide variety of biological products including soil amendments. Contact Custom Biologicals at (561) 797-3008 or via email at Bill@Custombio.biz. Distributor inquires are welcome. Private labeling and customized formulations are available.

Bio Soil for Plants. Biofertilizers for Plants.

Bio Soil for Plants

Bio Soil refers to the idea that the soil is alive with biological activity, living soil. Bio soils are in fact biological organisms, like beneficial soil bacteria or beneficial soil Trichoderma.

Bacillus megaterium and B. subtilis are bacteria that are useful for plants. Bacteria for plants can be either beneficial for the plant or detrimental to the plant. In this post we’ll talk about beneficial bacteria for plants, specifically beneficial soil bacteria.

It is well known that beneficial plant bacteria play a critical role in supporting and increasing plant growth and plant health. Because of their ability to confer benefits to the plant, it is important that beneficial bacteria adequately colonize the plant’s environment, specifically the plant root system.

Sometimes called Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria, or PGPB, bacteria are a vital link in the food web for plants.

Bio Soil

Custom B5 Contains Bacillus megaterium

Here’s a brief introduction to two key beneficial plant bacteria, Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus megaterium.

Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis, or B. sub, is a key beneficial plant bacteria. B. subtilis plays a role in replenishing soil nutrients through both the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle. To aid the carbon cycle B. subtilis degrades thatch, pectin, cellulose and other organic materials. B. subtilis forms biofilms which are dense populations of organisms. These biofilms provides the plants with preventive colonization, sometimes called competitive inhibition. While beyond the scope of this post, preventative colonization essentially prohibits other microorganisms from forming colonies around the plant roots.

Bacillus megaterium

Another key beneficial plant bacteria is Bacillus megaterium. In addition to some of the benefits conferred by B. subtilis, B. megaterium is known to be a phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB). PSBs have several important benefits:

  • They make phosphorus more available to the plant
  • Reduce the need for traditional fertilizer applications
  • Reduce Environmental problems downstream
  • Promote sustainable agriculture.

Beneficial Plant Bacteria – Bio Soil

The use of beneficial plant bacteria, like those above, has a very positive effect on plant growth, root mass, and crop yields. Specifically, beneficial plant bacteria produce plants with better growth response, biomass yield, and nutrient content when compared to plants without these important beneficial soil bacteria.

Custom Biologicals manufactures a wide variety of microbial products including products that contain beneficial plant bacteria and beneficial soil Trichoderma. Contact Custom at (561) 797-3008 or via email at Bill@Custombio.biz.

Bio Soil Enhancers refer to the idea of using biological products or biofertilizers to the soil. Creating a biologicals active soil.
