SoilNoc® FB+

DESCRIPTION

Environmentally friendly, easy to use, effective and safe. SoilNoc® FB+ is a high concentration soil inoculant consisting of multiple bacterial strains and an advanced bio-stimulant package. 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 problem turf areas.

BENEFITS

  • Increases plants resistance to fungal infections
  • Colonizes the root zone
  • Stimulates resistance to common turf problems
  • Non-toxic natural inhibition
  • Stimulates indigenous soil biology


PRIMARY USERS
SoilNoc® FB is primarily used by turf and lawn professionals and growers experiencing damping off symptoms.  

APPLICATIONS
Effective on sod, fairways and sand based greens, lawns, row crops, and vegetable gardens.

Apply to problem areas directly or through irrigation, fertigation, drip lines, hose end sprayers.  Maintenance applications can be mixed with fertilizer and applied at the same time. A good rule of thumb is to only mix what you will apply in 24 hour period. See label.

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!
