When to use Agriflora PRO?
Use Agriflora PRO to enhance plant growth and improve yield in outdoor crops. The beneficial bacteria in this combination fertilizer-protector increase nutrient availability by fixing nitrogen and solubilizing phosphorus in the soil and improve disease resistance by secreting substances that suppress soil-borne pathogens and by outcompeting them for space and nutrients.
How does Agriflora PRO work?
Agriflora PRO is composed of PGPR (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria) from the genus Bacillus
that interact with plants, resulting in:
- Colonization of the plant root system (rhizosphere).
- Production of the phytohormones auxin and gibberellin, which directly activate plant growth.
- Increased bioavailability of essential elements.
- The bacteria in Agriflora PRO increase the solubilization of phosphates and also allow better absorption of N, K, Fe, Ca and Mg.
- Facilitated plant development under stress conditions, such as high salinity and poor soil quality.
