Liquid Bacteria Concentrate contains bacteria that colonize the plant rhizosphere, promoting plant growth and suppressing plant pathogens. Plant growth is credited to the phytase activity that provides plants with phosphate. It also produces a variety of proteases, amylases and gluconases. Liquid Bacteria Concentrate also contains bacteria that have the ability to tolerate extreme environmental conditions by producing a tough protective coating. The bacteria continue to live on the root system and provide protection throughout the growing season. Bacteria and fungi are beneficial soil microbes that play key roles in maintaining a healthy soil.
