Fertilizer prices have just hit a record high. This has led to extremely high input prices for farmers and even fears of global starvation. So, what can you do to increase the uptake of nutrients by your crops and potentially reduce your input costs?
Well, one solution is to add Beauveria bassiana (LPC Natural’s SPE-120 or Sbb2.5) to your seeds or soil. Recent research shows that the beneficial fungus can increase the uptake of the macronutrient P and several micronutrients such as Mn, Zn, B, Fe, and Cu. In addition, the Beauveria bassiana has been shown to increase the root colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi which can provide essential plant inorganic nutrients to host plants. But it doesn’t stop there. LPC Natural’s SPE-120 or Sbb2.5 have also been shown to promote root growth so that your crops can reach more nutrients and water.
