And your choice for a highly effective PGPR product.
A phosphate-solubilizing plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) product, SYNTHOS nutrient enhancer from Koch Agronomic Services (KAS) is designed to produce enzymes and organic acids that improve solubilization and release bound nutrients.
This process converts phosphate-based fertilizer into readily available forms for uptake and use in a variety of crops—making it a must-have for any operation whose soil is facing a phosphorus deficiency.
As a PGPR product, SYNTHOS increases nutrient use efficiency by improving soil health. Growth-stimulating bacteria have a positive effect, including nitrogen fixation, solubility of phosphorus fertilizer, mineralization and decomposition of crop residue. By making nutrients useful for plants, SYNTHOS improves plant adaptability and promotes plant growth. SYNTHOS can also save growers both time and money in the field with a range of benefits.
SYNTHOS can be stored for two years before microbial viability is compromised, extending the window for application. It is also viable on fertilizer for up to 18 months, depending on storage conditions.
Applying SYNTHOS is simple. It’s formulated to impregnate bulk dry fertilizer and can be applied banded.
SYNTHOS has a unique formulation that allows phosphorous to be placed in the right place for the crop to access it. This in turn helps promote earlier maturity and strengthen the crop.
The mineral oil-based formulation of SYNTHOS acts as a dust suppressant and helps with reducing particle buildup during storage, blending and spreading.
Bacillus spp, the bioactives in SYNTHOS, produce enzymes and organic acids that improve the solubilization of phosphorus fertilizer into plant-available forms and release bound nutrients. They also produce growth metabolites that promote a more robust root system, improving nutrient and water uptake.
