Plant growth promoting bacteria for better crop nutrition

Bactrium contains highly competitive rhizosphere bacteria that colonize the root system. These bacteria improve plant nutrition by solubilizing immobilized phosphorus in the soil and also contribute to the greater availability of iron for all types of crops.

Benefits

Bacillus megaterium MHBM06 and MHBM77

  • Bactrium contributes to the better use of agricultural inputs, especially the phosphorous ones.
  • Mobilizes the phosphorus applied in previous campaigns and blocked in the soil, making it bioavailable for crops.
  • The high production of siderophores also makes it possible to improve the iron nutrition of the cultures.
  • The strains facilitate crop nutrition, resulting in greater growth and production.

Genomic studies with Bactrium

Both Bacillus megaterium species contained in Bactrium have been fully sequenced in our next generation platform at NGAlab. Thanks to this work we can affirm that they contain coding genes that contribute to:

  • Increased resistance to copper contamination (Copper Resistance Protein)
  • Iron uptake (siderophores)
  • The solubilization of phosphorus (acid phosphatases and phytases)

Microbiological production optimization

Bactrium industrial production has been optimized thanks to the response surface methodology. This innovative development has allowed us to consider all the parameters of our liquid-state bioreactor such as pH, dissolved oxygen and agitation regime to regulate the growth of bacteria and the transition to viable spores.

Composition

Bacillus megaterium MHBM06: 5×109 CFU/g
