A green and safe improvement on the use of chemicals

The Many Advantages of Our Products

Our products contain the beneficial fungus Beauveria bassiana that forms a symbiosis with plants. This has many advantages over the use of chemicals but the main two are:

It is safe.

The symbiosis can bring much wider beneficial effects that chemicals.

We have observed at least fourteen important traits that can be positively affected by the use of our Beauveria bassiana. Any one of these can be the difference between profit or loss. It can even be the difference between getting a crop and not being able to harvest a crop.

Here are the traits and just some of the results. Follow the links for more detailed information.

Yield

90 Bushels/acre yield increase in corn (Illinois 2019)

Increased wheat yields by 420lbs per acre (300lbs more than mycorrhizae)

Quality

Wheat protein level increased from 10% to 12% (went from feed to food grade).

HVK level increase from 11% to 67% (509% more).

Rice increased in Grade from 3 to 2 (Arkansas 2020)

Germination and Establishment Speed

Dramatically faster germination reported in soybean, cotton and hemp

Drought Tolerance

Published data shows that Beauveria bassiana promotes drought tolerance in corn

2019 report that Beauveria bassiana enhances drought tolerance in red oak seedlings

Nutrient Uptake

2015 publication shows Beauveria increases iron uptake and stops deficiency

2020 article shows Beauveria increase nutrient uptake in durum wheat

Trichome Density

2021 report showed 49-74% more trichomes in Beauveria-containing tobacco plants

Root Mass

Increase in root mass seen in corn, rice, wheat, and many other crops

Flooding Tolerance

Dramatic recovery after flooding seen in beans in North Dakota

Increased Photosynthesis

Darker green leaves reported from corn and wheat

Beauveria-containing cowpea plants have higher chlorophyll content than controls.

More Biochemicals

Increased sugar levels and Brix scores seen in tomatoes and strawberries

25% increases in cannabinoids and terpenes in industrial hemp

What are our products?

Our products contain the spores of the beneficial symbiotic fungus Beauveria bassiana. Our products are available in both liquid and dry forms and are used to treat plants to establish a beneficial symbiosis. For best results, the plants should be treated so that the fungus can establish itself in the plant as the first roots form. This typically means treating the seeds or watering the product in furrow after the seeds are sown. An early establishment of the beneficial symbiosis is more likely to result in a larger root system and larger, more biochemically active, plants. Increased yield, quality, and resilience to flooding and drought are commonly seen in the treated plants.

Yield

  • 90 Bushels/acre yield increase in corn (Illinois 2019)
  • Increased wheat yields by 420lbs per acre (300lbs more than mycorrhizae)

Disease Resistance

  • BbAFP1 kills fungal cells
  • Increased resistance seen against many diseases including Botrytis, Powdery Mildew, Rusts, Fusarium, Anthracnose, root rot, Beauveria protein AFP1 directly kills fungi such as Alternaria (Black Spot)

Insect Resistance

  • 83% reduction in viable grasshopper eggs
  • Grasshoppers chose 12:1 to feed on plants that did not contain Beauveria
  • Mid-season foliar spray kills insects and Spider Mites

Quality

  • Wheat protein level increased from 10% to 12% (went from feed to food grade).
  • HVK level increase from 11% to 67% (509% more).
  • Rice increased in Grade from 3 to 2 (Arkansas 2020)

Germination and Establishment Speed

  • Dramatically faster germination reported in soybean, cotton and hemp

Drought Tolerance

  • Published data shows that Beauveria bassiana promotes drought tolerance in corn
  • 2019 report that Beauveria bassiana enhances drought tolerance in red oak seedlings

Toxin Levels

  • 77-99% reduction in fumonisin in corn over three growing seasons

Nematode Resistance

  • Beauveria bassiana led to a 67-70% reduction in cyst nematodes

Nutrient Uptake

  • 2015 publication shows Beauveria increases iron uptake and stops deficiency
  • 2020 article shows Beauveria increase nutrient uptake in durum wheat

Trichome Density

  • 2021 report showed 49-74% more trichomes in Beauveria-containing tobacco plants

What are SPE-120 and SBb 2.5?

SPE-120 and SBb 2.5 are similar products that contain the spores of the beneficial symbiotic fungus Beauveria bassiana. The main difference between the two products is that SPE-120 is OMRI listed for organic use. Both products are available in both liquid and dry forms and are used to treat plants to establish a beneficial symbiosis. For best results, the plants should be treated so that the fungus can establish itself in the plant as the first roots form. This typically means treating the seeds or watering the product in furrow after the seeds are sown. An early establishment of the beneficial symbiosis is more likely to result in a larger root system and larger, more biochemically active, plants. Increases in yield, quality, resistance to diseases (especially fungal diseases), resilience to flooding and drought, and reduced toxin levels are commonly seen in the SPE-120 and SBb 2.5-treated plants.
