Bacillus Mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacterium, whose important characteristic can break down the silicate and aluminum silicate and the potassium, silica in the minerals such as feldspar, mica and also can break down the phosphorous in apatite.
Bacillus mucilaginosus has the function of dissolving phosphorus, releasing potassium and silicon, fixing nitrogen. At the same time, it can also secrete natural plant hormones and a lot of enzymes, which can increase crop resistance to some diseases.
At present, this kind of bacteria is the best strain as biological fertilizer to promote the conversion of invalid phosphorus and potassium in soil and increase crop yields.
|Appearance||Bacillus Mucilaginosus||Assay||1×10^10 CFU/G|
As Additive: Mix 4-6 KG Bacillus Mucilaginosus with 1MT fertilizer.
Soil Application: 3-6KG/Ha/time,1-2 times during the seedling and growth stage.
Functions of Bacillus Mucilaginosus
1. Dissolve phosphate, potassium, and fix nitrogen, increase fertilizer’s utilization, then can reduce fertilizer usage.
2. Loose soil, decompose trace elements-zinc, silicon, calcium, sulfur, boron, molybdenum, and iron, etc. Then can fully supply nutrients for the crops, and improve soil condition.
3. Produce Ga3, IAA, and other physiologically active substances. Make plants grow healthy, enhance crop stress resistance.
4. Form root beneficial bacteria group to protect crop roots effectively restrains the various disease from the soil and reduces pesticide usage.
Field Trial of Bacillus Mucilaginosus
Through the field application on the number of crops for several years, Bacillus mucilaginosus can increase available phosphorus content in soil to 90%-110.8%, the available potassium content to 20-35%.
Adding 600g Bm to 1 Ha fields is equal to the effect of 225-300kg calcium phosphate and 112.150kg KG potassium sulfate. Once applied, useful in the whole stages.
In one orchard soil of a county in Nanjing, because of using chemical fertilizer, not using organic fertilizer for a long time leads to soil harden seriously.
After application of BM for two months, digging around the fruit trees and observed, we found that the soil loosen and the earthworm increased obviously, those are two important indicators of soil health.
