  • Replaces beneficial soil microorganisms and contains both beneficial soil fungi and beneficial soil bacteria.

An often overlooked component of soil health are beneficial soil microorganisms. In fact, beneficial bacteria and beneficial fungi are largely responsible for making a wide variety of nutrients available to the plant. Additionally, soil microorganisms are responsible for mineralization and immobilization of soil nutrients.

A common element of healthy soils, is a large, diverse population of soil microorganisms. So what happens in soils that don’t have this population of soil organisms? Simple, the crops underperform and require increasing amounts of traditional fertilizers. Not only are traditional fertilizers expensive, they are environmentally suspect.

The solution is Living Organic Fertilizer containing five species of beneficial soil bacteria and four species of beneficial soil bacteria.

Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria

Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria

 

Great review article about plant growth promoting bacteria. The link, citation, and author are below. The author believes, as I do, that in the not to distant future, plant growth promoting bacteria, PGPB, will begin to replace chemicals used in agriculture, horticulture,

environmental cleanup strategies, and even in home gardening. This change will not be a one size fits all solution, and no doubt some new technologies and application strategies will need to be employed.

Some of the key points:

  • In healthy soils, there are 108 to 10bacteria per gram but in stressed soils this number greatly decreases to as low as 104 bacteria per gram.
  • A number of different bacterial species are currently used in agriculture; however plant growth promoting bacteria are only used on a small fraction of available crops.
  • Bacteria are used for:
    • Nitrogen fixation
    • Phosphate Solubilization
    • Sequestering Iron
    • Producing Phytohormones
    • Producing Gibberellins,  Cytokinins,  Indoleacetic Acid, and Etylene
  • Bacteria affect plants in indirect ways like through competitive exclusion, and modulating the effects of stress.

The conclusion of the article is that the use of bacteria in agriculture has come of age. Taking advantage of microbe-plant interactions will be the future of agriculture. Additional studies will be needed, however, the commercial use of plant growth promoting bacteria will be more prevalent in the coming years.

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.

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.

Bacteria as a Soil Treatment

biological soil admendment

Bacteria as a Soil Treatment

Soil treatments have been in the news lately. There have been a large amount of studies that focus on the benefits of using individual bacteria, generally of the genus Bacillus, to increase soil productivity for a wide variety of crops.

Bacillus as a Soil Treatment

A number of Bacillus species are naturally present at low levels in most cultivated soils. However, soils treated with insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and fertilizers over a number of years have been shown to have a greatly reduced natural

population of beneficial soil bacteria. It is known that the harsh chemical treatments kill the bad microorganisms, both bacteria and fungi. Unfortunately, it is now known that these same chemicals are killing off the beneficial bacteria and other beneficial microorganisms as well. Soils that have a depleted level of beneficial microorganisms, usually produce small plants, resulting in smaller crop yield and these plants tend to have more problems with plant disease.

Custom B5

Fortunately, these lost microorganisms can be replaced with Custom B5, a soil productivity product by Custom Biologicals. Custom B5 contains a blend of five specifically selected, all natural bacteria strains of the genus Bacillus. These bacteria have been selected because of their safety and because of their ability to improve soil conditions for plant growth.

Custom B5 contains the following bacteria:

  • Bacillus subtilis including B sub GB03
  • Bacillus laterosporus
  • Bacillus licheniformus
  • Bacillus megaterium
  • Bacillus pumilus 

Benefits of Bacteria as a Soil Treatment

The addition of Custom B5 to soils immediately increases the microorganism population to that of fertile soils. A great benefit  found in soils treated with B5 is a increase in the rate of crop residue decomposition. This is due to the heightened production of enzymes that degrade these crop residues. Enzymes produced degrade compounds such as; cellulose, hemicellulose, chitin, and fungicides.

There are many great benefits of using the beneficial bacteria in Custom B5 and these benefits directly and indirectly effect plant growth. Plants taken from bioaugmented soils are larger, have denser greener leaves, and have a greater root mass. Some of the important growth stimulating factors produced by these beneficial bacteria are:

  • The supply the plant with nitrogen that can be used biologically. In other words, nitrogen that is more readily available to the plants.
  • Beneficial bacteria produce phytohormones (plant growth regulators) including cytokinin, ethylene, gibberellin, auxins, and abscisic acid.
  • Improved processing of inorganic and organic nutrients like:
    • Nitrogen
    • Phosphorus
    • Calcium
    • Copper
    • molybdenum
    • Magnesium
    • Zinc
    • Iron

Microbial products have a number of different names; biofertilizers, soil amendments, soil probiotics.

Custom B5 is unique in the marketplace because it contains five beneficial bacteria in one soil productivity product.

Custom B5 Soil Amendment

Biological soil amendments, like Custom B5 and Custom GP, are scientifically formulated to restore soil productivity and promote plant growth. They are perfect for food crops, turf, trees, and ornamental flowers and shrubs.

Fertile soils contain a large number of beneficial microorganisms. These microbes process fertilizers making essential nutrients and minerals available to plants. They also digest thatch and other organic matter, releasing additional nutrients into the soil.

Pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and other chemicals can greatly diminish a soil’s natural population of beneficial microbes. This reduces the soil’s ability to support turf, crops, and other vegetation.

Custom B5 and Custom GP biological soil amendments improve soil conditions by restoring the soil’s natural microbial population. Their use will increase nutrient availability, enhance root mass development and promote vigorous plant growth.

Custom GP is a blend of 4 beneficial Trichoderma fungi and Custom B5 is a blend of 5 beneficial bacteria of the species Bacillus. Custom B% can be used independently or combined for maximum benefit. Both Custom B5 and Custom GP are available as liquid concentrates. The use of concentrated products greatly reduces shipping costs and delivery times making the overall cost of use lower.
