Our products are developed by applying our “Constructed Functional Microbiome™” platform technology, which harness natural microbial consortia for increasing crop yield, improving soil quality, prevent crop to accumulate heavy metals and remediate soil pollutants.
Helps plants to resist stress conditions and enhances crop growth
The PGPB (Pseudomonas fluorescens) strains used in Mbooster™ were developed for their ability to solubilise inorganic phosphate and make it more available to the plant. The genes encoding these enzymes have been identified and characterised for our strains. The strain also encodes an ACC deaminase which has been demonstrated to enhance plant growth (oilseed rape Brassica napus) under stress conditions. When applied to the seed Mbooster™ rapidly colonises the emerging root system and establishes itself over the lifetime of the crop where it produces a phosphate solubilising compound called gluconic acid. In addition, as an endophyte, the strain colonises the internal tissues of the root and stem and can enhance the stress resilience of the plant by producing the enzyme ACC deaminase which modulates the plant response to external stresses (such as heavy metals) and increases root and shoot length and plant health under stress conditions.
