Nutri-Life Bio-P provides a simple and cost-affordable solution to the problem of the phosphorous conundrum. All soils with a history of applied fertilizer contain large amounts of insoluble phosphate that is locked up or "frozen" due to the habit of the phosphate ion to tightly bind to positive cations in the soil profile. Nutri-Life Bio-P is designed to solubilize these phosphorous reserves by utilizing two specialist bacteria, Azotobacter species in conjunction with a phosphate liberator – Bacillus subtilis. These bacteria provide faster release of rock phosphate and enhance phosphate release to your crop throughout the whole growing season.
Imagine that the frozen phosphorous reserves that are stored in your soil are like dollars in your pocket. It is there in the soil, but it has not yet provided its maximum benefit and profit to your crop yields, and ultimately your wallet. This year, instead of applying higher amounts of insoluble phosphate fertilizers, why not keep that money in your pocket and do something to free the phosphorous already waiting idly in your soil? Use Bio-P™ and the incredible power of microbial activity to solublize the rock phosphate.
In addition to improving phosphorus availability, Nutri-Life Bio-P has also been shown to promote root growth and strength, increase yield, quality and Brix levels.
Nutri-Life Bio-P™ contains large numbers of Azotobacter species and Bacillus subtilis. It is a liquid microbial product.
Nutri-Life Bio-P™ can be used as a soil treatment, a seed treatment, or added to your starter fertilizer.
At planting of broadacre crops, include 200 mL/acre with your starter solution. For horticultural crops, apply at rate of 400 mL/acre every 4 weeks or as required. Avoid mixing with any chemicals or fertilizer materials high in salt that will kill microbes. As a seed treatment, mix at 2 L/tonne of seed (broadacre) or 5 mL/kg (horticulture) just prior to planting. As part of a transplant solution or root dip for seedlings, dip seedlings in a solution of 1 mL per L just prior to planting.
Because it contains live micro-organisms, do not mix Bio-P with fungicides/bactericides, toxic chemicals or soil fumigants.
The products we offer are designed to be used together as part of a full-year nutritional program. For more information on use, application rates and timing for specific crops contact Agriculture Solutions today.
