SoilNoc® BP

 

DESCRIPTION
Environmentally friendly, easy to use, effective and safe. SoilNoc® BP is a very high concentration soil inoculant consisting of multiple bacterial strains on a soluble micro nutrient substrate. These rhizosphere competent plant beneficial microbes are scientifically chosen for their ability to quickly colonize the soil / plant roots and form a synergistic relationship. Designed for all soil types, SoilNoc® is especially effective in stressed, sandy or clay soils.

BENEFITS

  • Improves nutrient uptake and mineralization
  • Increases fertilizer efficacy
  • Improves root growth and plant yield
  • Increases soil friability and aggregation
  • Improves plant’s drought tolerance
  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Increases water holding capacity
  • Restores microbial activity after severe droughts / floods or soil sterilization events.
  • Reduces salinity
  • Recycle dead vegetation into nutrients and humus
  • Stimulates indigenous soil biolog

 


PRIMARY USERS
Due to its high concentration, SoilNoc® BP is favoured by formulators and by professional operators of large farms, ranches, turf management companies, and commercial growers. The latter group tank-mixes or dry-mixes with a fertilization / fertigation application, or mixes directly with seeds during planting, or on roots for transplants.

Formulators use SoilNoc® BP as the core microbial “ingredient” then blend in additional ingredients such as plant nutrients (including conventional and/or organic fertilizers), additional bio-stimulant nutrients, specific soil additives, or a combination of all. Other formulations include blending into pelletized fertilizer or granular formats for dry broadcast and as a compost tea / leachate additive. These formulated products are then marketed under their own labels.

SoilNoc® BP as a bacteria-only blend is also very popular with growers who routinely use fungicides in their application.

APPLICATIONS
Well suited to a broad range of conditions from sandy to tight clay soils. Effective in stressed, high yield demand environments, permanent pastures, following soil sterilization between crop cycles, following a pesticide / herbicide application, mixed into potting soil and is a key part of a managed soil maintenance or renovation program. Effective on sand based greens (sports turf) in managing multiple heavy fertilization applications. Reduces leaching, increases root mass and complimentary to your nutrient program in effectively managing turf color and shoot growth goals. Apply through irrigation, fertigation, drip lines, mix with seeds at planting, or blend directly into dry fertilizers. Apply with boom or boomless sprayers. If mixing in water, a good rule of thumb is to only mix what you will apply in 24 hour period. Contact your representative if your application requires a longer time frame.

SOIL BIOLOGY
Simply put - soil microorganisms are directly or indirectly involved in every transformation, conversion, or processing of nutrients, storing of nutrients (reduced leaching) and provide a protective barricade ensuring a healthy environment for root activity.

Their ability to recycle nutrients, to breakdown complex structures into plant (and invertebrate) available form, to store available nitrogen and to ultimately become a food source themselves, forms the basis of their synergistic relationship with both the flora and soil fauna.
(Note: Unlike some other nutrients, available nitrogen can not be stored or “locked” in soil. Available nitrogen must be immediately used by plants, stored in microorganisms, or it leaches – wasted money for the user and environmental impacts for everyone)

Plant roots release exudates forming a rich rhizosphere environment which is very attractive to microbes – attractive to both the good (beneficial) and the bad (opportunistic & pathogenic) organisms. In soils stressed by

  • environmental factors, too much or too little water;
  • long term use of conventional salt based fertilizers (osmotic shock kills microbes by dehydration);
  • frequent turning of soils through tilling and plowing (releasing sequestered carbon, loss of organic matter & topsoil through erosion);
  • the effects of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides;


beneficial microbes are quickly displaced by non-beneficial or “opportunistic” microbes who are better adapted to survive in this stressed environment. Analogous to a compromised immune system in humans which presents an “opportunity” for pathogens to cause infection leading to a spiral of complications.  

The non-beneficial microorganisms populating the stressed rhizosphere foster an environment which not only harms the plant and degrades soil tilth but attracts additional non-beneficial flora and fauna – weeds and pests. Now we need additional chemicals to treat these symptoms, which in turn make the soil more inhospitable for the beneficial microbes, and … the cycle continues in the wrong direction.

In summary, positively influencing the rhizosphere is key in maximizing economic yield and reducing environmental collateral damage. If left alone, nature will eventually balance soil biology but it takes decades or more depending on the initial condition. Time that is not commercially available between crops, between grazing cycles, or between rounds of golf.

SoilNoc® product range is a valuable asset in your agronomy toolbox for conventional and organic growers.  Both benefit from health, yield, and reduction of inputs. SoilNoc® is not meant to permanently change your indigenous biology. It is designed to give you an element of control ensuring your plants & profits have a very competitive edge – from the roots up!
