|Omnia has developed Bacstim™ 100 – works with the crop’s root system to increase nutrient uptake, leading to higher biomass productions above and below the ground.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bacstim™ 100?
- Bacstim™ 100 is a microbial based product containing 5 different spore forming Bacillus spp. strains. The strains have been selected based on proven superiority in cropping systems.
- When root colonisation is established by the Bacillus, they can perform a wide variety of actions such as the breakdown of organic matter to supply nutrients to the crop, production of phytohormones and improved resistance of plants against pathogenic microorganisms.
What is a bacillus strain?
- Bacillus is a wider classification of bacteria and within the Bacillus group exists different species of Bacillus. Strains are a subgroup within bacterial species with minor differences in their DNA.
- Bacterial strains are the equivalent of breeds within a species like dogs. Just like dog breeds can vary widely and are useful for a range of purposes, so different bacillus strains have different activity in the way they interact with plants.
