Trichoderma Biofertilizer

Trichoderma Biofertilizer

Commercial Trichoderma biofertilizers are becoming more common and more misunderstood. In this post, I’ll discuss the use of beneficial Trichoderma fungi as a biofertilizer.

Trichoderma

Trichoderma are a microscopic fungi that are naturally present in most soils. To insure high populations of Trichoderma or to replenish populations lost to over farming, Trichodema can be added to soils by the use of Trichoderma biofertilizers. These fertilizers have a number of important benefits to the plant:

  • Reduces the use of traditional fertilizers (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium). Reduces the pollution from overuse of NPK.
  • Improves plant growth, crop yield, and nutritional quality.
  • Form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots increasing tolerance to plant stress such as drought.
  • Production and release of beneficial plant growth hormones.
  • Takes advantage of microbe plant interactions.

Trichoderma Biofertilizer

Trichoderma biofertilizers have been used successfully with a number of crops including tomatoes, corn, rice, sorghum, soybeans and peppers.

Custom Biologicals manufactures and distributes three products that contain Trichoderma Trichoderma Biofertilizerfungi; Custom GP, Biota Max™ and Custom GP Fizzytabs.

All three products are Trichoderma biofertilizers and contain 4 species of beneficial Trichoderma fungi. They include:

  1. Trichoderma harzianium
  2. Trichoderma viride
  3. Trichoderma koningii
  4. Trichoderma polysporum

All three products are designed as soil conditioners. That is they are to help improve soil conditions by increasing the populations of beneficial soil microorganisms.

Custom GP is a liquid concentrate and contains 4 species of beneficial fungi. Custom GP is also available as a fizzytab.

Biota Max™ contains both beneficial Trichoderma and beneficial soil bacteria. As a combination product, Biota Max™ is unique to the biofertilizer industry. Each tablet treats 1/4 acre or 1/10 hectare. Biota Max™ is equally useful in the home garden and the commercial farm. Great as a seed treatment too!

Trichoderma for Plants

Beneficial Trichoderma fungi convey many benefits to plants. In fact, microbe plant interactions are often beneficial to the plant and in turn, beneficial to farmers and gardeners. This post will talk about the plant growth promotion benefits of these beneficial fungi.

Basics of Beneficial Fungi

First, lets start at the beginning. Trichoderma are microscopic, free living fungi typically Trichodermafound in the root zone (rhizosphere) of many plants. They are common inhabitants of both the root and soil ecosystems. They  are generally thought of as opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts.

In fact, some species are able to colonize and grow on roots as the roots develop. For this reason, many applications  are either as seed treatments or applied as early in the growing cycle as possible.

Since many fungal species have a number of benefits for plants, there are a number of words use to describe these benefits such as; biofertilizer, soil probiotic, soil inoculant, biological soil enhancement and plant growth promoting fungi.

Plant Growth Promotion

For many years, it has been known that many Trichoderma species help with plant growth promotion. They, along with multiple species of Mycorhiza, are considered plant growth promoting fungi (PGPF). Enhanced root development has been seen in a number of crops including, soy beans, corn, tomatoes, peppers and rice to name a few.

Root development is key to a plants early survival as well as its nutrient uptake as the plant begins to mature. All gardeners and farmers know, that a plant with a good root system will become a productive plant.

Along with enhanced root development, beneficial soil fungi convey some additional specific benefits to plants:

  • Phosphate solubility – making phosphorus more readily available to the plant.
  • Enhanced root biomass production and enhanced root hair production.
  • Production of phytohormones – both auxins and cytokinins. These compounds are plant growth promoters.
  • Higher tolerance of the plant to stress.

All of these benefits ensure a healthier, more efficient root system, a healthier plant and a more productive crop.

Custom B5 and Custom GP biological soil amendments are scientifically formulated to restore soil productivity an promote plant growth. The are perfect for food crops, turf, trees, and ornamental flowers and shrubs. Custom B5 and Custom GP are equally effective when soil amendmentsused by commercial farms and backyard gardeners.

It is well known that fertile soils contain a large number of beneficial microorganisms. These microbes process fertilizers (N,P,K) 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, other chemicals, and over farming 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 conditions by restoring a soil’s natural microbial population. Their use will increase nutrient availability, enhance root mass development and promote vigorous plant growth.
