Introduction

Nutrenics Plant Biostimulant is a collection of more than 15 different types of natural microscopic organisms (microbes) beneficial to plant and soil health. The microbes work together within the plants and soil, enhancing a very wide variety of activities critical to plants and the soil. This in turn has dramatic effects on soil health, plant growth, crop yields, disease suppression, fertiliser uptake whilst providing a wide range of environmental remediation effects.

These naturally-occurring microbes are found in excellent soils around the world and are not genetically modified in any way. They are 100% natural, non-artificially synthesised and contain no manures or pathogens.

Healthy Soils

Beneficial microbial activity in soil is critical for plant health and growth. Healthy soils contain trillions of microbes which perform a wide variety of tasks creating an ecosystem which is symbiotic with plants, providing them nutrients essential for their health, growth and yield.

Many conventional agricultural practices and norms such as the application of fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides or even tilling the earth can be very damaging to microbial balance and overall soil health. Enhancing beneficial microbes activity in soils is nature’s way to healthy soils.

Application

Using Nutrenics Plant Biostimulant is easy, simply dilute it with any type of water which can be used to water plants and spray it on the all parts of the plant and soil. The microbes will find their way to where they are most needed.

Why Microbes?

“Poor farmers grow crops,good farmers grow soil” Anon.

Over the last few decades, there has been increasing awareness of the importance of microbes to plant health. There are many references to this on the internet and we have listed some of our favourites at the bottom of this section ranging from YouTube videos to scientific papers.

The plant root zone, or “rhizosphere” is the boundary layer between the roots themselves and the soil. In healthy plants and soils, this area is teeming with microbial life and activity with the microbes feeding the plants with nutrients from the soil and the plants feeding the microbes with the products of photosynthesis. This extremely complex system is critical for the good health of the plant. Any disturbance to this will affect the performance of the plant.

A simple way to demonstrate this is to take some good soil, put it in a microwave and cook it for a short time. Physically, nothing will change much but the soil will be dead, unlike the soil that was put into the microwave to begin with. Which part died? All the bacteria, fungi, viruses and microfauna which were beneficial to the soil and plants. Putting this in the microwave will also also denature enzymes, rhizohormones and other organic complexes; many of the common treatments used today will do this denaturing to some extent. It is easy to test this by planting two plants in otherwise identical soils and seeing how the soil with dead microbes performs compared to the microbial soils.

Plants struggle to perform in soils with low microbial activity since they have limited mechanisms to dissolve, deliver and absorb the nutrients they require. Many of the conventional agricultural practices common around the world today such as high intensity fertilizing, application of agro-chemicals such as pesticides, fungicides and even tilling the soil, diminish or destroy these valuable colonies of microscopic workers.

Secretion from the roots help form the colloid once in the soil which is the media of synergistic interaction between the plants, roots and the soil. This video very clearly shows the dynamic gel-like substance that envelopes the young roots.

Why aren’t more people using microbes?

Many farmers, especially in the organic farming sector are using a variety of microbial products from manures to compost teas, all of which contain microbes. The key question is which microbes and what do they do? This type of approach assumes many things including that all the necessary microorganisms required are already in the soil or manures and can easily be multiplied- study on the effectiveness of compost teas shows the huge variability of this approach and that this assumption is not necessarily a good one.

The other approach is to isolate certain beneficial microbial strains and use these as biostimulants and this approach demonstrated promising benefits. A key pioneer of this approach was Professor Teruo Haga of Japan in the 1980s titled “Effective Microorganisms” or EM for short. EMs have been popular for specific markets and hobbyists and continue to be so today. However it has been difficult to dramatically improve on these discoveries and much scientific research continues on in this field.

The bottom line is that selecting the right microbes is one of keys to the success of using microbes. However, even by selecting a group of microbes, which on paper complement each other, may not give predictable results on how they will work together. These microbial groups will often compete with each other to emerge with a few dominant strains. Looking at what’s commercially available on the market, it is very difficult to find products with more than 5 different types of microbes due to this. This is also one of the reasons why current laboratory tested products don’t perform as expected in the field.

Microbial Coordination

The key breakthrough of Nutrenics microbes is the proprietary method of coordinating the functions of the microbes to respond to signals from the plants. This has made it possible for us to have many different microbial types for a very wide spectrum beneficial effect on the soil and the plants. Our formula contains more than 20 different types of microbes for a wide variety of functions from fixing Nitrogen to solubilising Potassium, Phosphorus and Silicon all the way to breaking down soil toxins. Please see the functions of the Nutrenics Plant Biostimulant below for a more detailed functions list.

Functions and Effects

Nutrenics Soil Biostimulants multi-function microbes perform the following functions for soils, whether healthy or poisoned, which in turn helps with plant growth and yields. They also perform a series of beneficial actions for a very wide variety of plants. Specifics will vary depending on soil conditions, plant types, environmental conditions etc. but all plants will exhibit the benefits listed below as a result of applications of Nutrenics Soil Biostimulant.

Soil Remediation:

Nutrenics Plant Biostimulant performs the following functions which all contribute towards soil remediation:

  • Effective unlocking of stubborn polymerized soil minerals and nutrients ranging from phosphates, nitrates, tricalciums, to complex molecules like humates, fulvates, polysaccharides etc to provide plant-friendly absorbable simple components. Releasing of trace elements in the soil as and when required by the plant signals.
  • Repair and reversal of poisoned soils (due to abuse of chemical pesticides, fertilisers, rotting organic material by sequential breakdown (biodegradation) of toxins to become useful plant foods.
  • Prevention of putrefaction by destroying pathogens responsible, e.g. Clostridium, Salmonella, Esterichia etc.
  • Increased carbon locking in soils by speeding composting, humic acid sequestration, carboxyl formation and direct removal of CO2 from atmosphere. Carbon to nitrogen ratios are gradually restored to about 10-15.
  • Selective locking up of poisons like arsenic, manganese and iron when not absolutely required by the crops.
  • Strong bio-decomposition capabilities to turn freshly dead plant debris into soil organic matter (SOM). All benefits of increased SOM should be included herein.
  • Reduced leachate loss by moderating the percentage of free bioavailable nutrients to exchangeable and locked (fixed) proportions. This is governed by the requirements of the plants.
  • Reduced volatile and eutrophication losses from soils including slope runoffs due to Microbial colloidisation of soils along with pH, hydration, salinity adjustments.
  • Soil pH stabilizer and trace element binder. Also thixotropic for the prevention of slope destabilisation.

Plant Health & Function

Thanks to the coordinating functions of the microbes, the following benefits will occur when the plants need them and are not dependent on human control or intervention:​

  • Increased root size, distribution and penetrative depth. More tolerance to flooding, low partial oxygen pressures and root shyness. Optimize root excretion of signals, biomodulators etc to select which functions to prioritise, accelerate or slow down.
  • Regulate root secretion of certain anti-disease enzymes and reproductive inhibitors by stimulating root plant cells to take on these functions; e.g. chitinases, glucanases, peroxidase, peptidases which (sometimes are also given by our Trichoderma against phytium an scleroctium.)
  • Increase root absorption by optimizing transmembrane carrier mechanisms, their speed and densities.
  • Improving soil cation exchange capacities by more than 8%.
  • Increased root abruscularization by certain beneficial fungi.
  • Helps to optimize photosynthesis, formation of proteins and starches and also production of coenzymes.
  • Production of plant growth factors including Auxins, Gibberellins, Brassinosteroids and Betaines.
  • Strengthening plants against abiotic stresses, infestation and diseases. Disease control- encourages some plants to produce phytoalexins, momilactones, peroxidase etc.
  • Increased silicon deposition in the plant bulliform contributes to stiffness, increased water retention (+15%) increasing drought tolerance.
  • Stiffer leaf structure also enables optimum angle towards the sun for photosynthesis.
  • Enables more successful intercropping and good yields in partial shade.
  • In some cases tolerating a sub clinical disease to still produce satisfactory yields without spoilage e.g. Ganoderma, fusarium and glysporia.

Crop Yields

Because of our microbes coordinating functions according to plant requirements in a time-sensitive manner, there are major benefits to crop yields in terms of quantity as well as quality without detriment to plant health:​

  • Increased fruit and grain yields- increased fruit weights and sweetness. Increased grain filling, fertility percentage, number of pannicles per sq.m. etc.
  • Superfluous grain filling and nutrient translocation dynamics: +20% increase per 1,000 grain weight without breach of hulls for grains.
  • Cleaner, blast-free grain not just for food milling but also for seedstock.
  • No change in genes or grain pattern or amylosacharide percentages since we are using the same biochemistry/ physiology pathways.
  • Prolonging of productivity period e.g. seasonal fruits and legumes. More biomass leaf weight. Increased quality of fruits- brics score, mesocarp bulk etc.
  • Accelerated biochemical enzyme activity and energy conversion leading to optimized photosynthesis, flag leaf robustness, translocation of oils, starches, proteins water, trace elements, gels etc., repairs, growth, reproduction, bud dormancy, flowering and fruit setting etc.
  • High level of precise autoregulation between plant and microbe activities, hence no need for:-
  • Phytoalexins hormonal intervention. Tedious Manipulation of fertiliser Trace elements and growth factors/enzymes.

Biodiversity

Enhancing beneficial microbial activity has a huge knock-on effect for other beneficial animal health and activity, from insects, worms, birds and so on. All these creatures perform useful and beneficial functions for environmental balance and our overall wellbeing. Nutrenics Plant Biostimulant has hugely beneficial effects on all of these.

The microbes when correctly managed, have all these activities properly balanced out based on the REQUESTS FROM THE CROPS.

Our microbes are partly relying on the longstanding biosynergistic collaborations (multi-level symbiosis) with plants to perform accordingly. This product has the correct populations of several genera of microbes (which explains our huge diversity of functions) as well as the all-important microbial coordinating functions to perpetuate this relationship. The results can be highly effective in most soil/plant biomes.

These microbes will attach useful insects like ants, bees and ladybirds and evidently reduce the likelihood of colony collapse syndrome. They are tolerated by most domesticated animals and will encourage the increase of lean body weight due to their probiotic effect on feedstock and within the gut. Some crop farmers have reported reduced destruction by rats and the hated hopper-borer-whitefly insect groups.

In the development and manufacture of this product, the mainstay of microbial development sciences without genetic engineering was practiced.
