In last week’s email, I explained the rhizosphere’s role in supporting plant health. To recap, the rhizosphere forms as beneficial bacteria colonize around the root system. Ultimately, it serves as a chemical and physical barrier to protect roots and assist with nutrient uptake and use.
The rhizosphere itself shows the delicate balance among biological, chemical and physical crop production factors. For years, agriculture recognized the physical and chemical needs. Without the biological perspective, though, the balance is disrupted. This story from AgriNews shares one farmer’s experience with physical, chemical and biological management.
Biologicals applied to the soil can support a well-developed, high-functioning rhizosphere. They supply strains of beneficial bacteria. Each strain contributes certain benefits.
At BigYield.us, our BigBioYield includes multiple beneficial bacteria in a single blend. Those bacteria contribute to soil and plant health in several ways. Those include producing important enzymes, protecting crops from harm, improving a crop’s ability to root and encouraging plant growth. Ultimately, these actions translate into a healthier crop and heftier yields.
Adding beneficial bacteria to the root zone supplies those bacteria in a key location to facilitate quick and healthy rhizome development. Our two in-furrow treatments – BP In-Furrow and BPIF-Soy – are designed to position the BigBioYield bacteria in the planting furrow where they can make a big impact.
BP In-Furrow blends bacteria in the BigBioYield biological with a high-quality, food-grade starter fertilizer. It’s formulated for application on corn, wheat, milo and other crops.
Formulated specifically for soybeans, BPIF-Soy delivers the multiple beneficial bacteria in BigBioYield alongside our cold-processed sweetener. BPIF-Soy applications give soybeans a fast, healthy start.
The bacteria in biological products are living organisms. Relative to other biologicals, however, BigBioYield is unique in that the product is dormant. In this video, John Ortiz of BigYield.us shares about why it matters that the bacteria are dormant.
