There’s a reason why our tagline at Holganix is “Root Stimulating, Soil Nourishing”! Holganix Bio 800+ Agriculture harnesses the power of soil microbes to build healthy soils and healthy root growth. Healthy root growth leads to stronger, more productive crops that yield better results!
In this blog, we dive into (1) recent winners of our Holganix Roots For You competition to discover the best Holganix-grown crop roots and (2) two ways Holganix Bio 800+ Agriculture stimulates root growth.
Holganix Roots For You Winners
Check out our infographic below showing off eight photos submitted by Holganix farmers. Each farmer applied Holganix Bio 800+ Agriculture at a rate of 0.5 gallons per acre at or as close to planting as possible.
2 Ways Holganix Bio 800+ Agriculture Builds Root Development
1. Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria - Holganix Bio 800+ contains Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria (PGPB) that occupy the rhizosphere (root zone) of the plant and have the ability to promote plant growth and plant defense.
2. Endo and Ecto Mycorrhizae - Holganix Bio 800+ contains Endo and Ecto Mycorrhizae is a beneficial soil fungus that works in conjunction with plant roots. The fungi and the plant roots form a mutualistic relationship whereby the plant produces sugars through photosynthesis and exudes them out of the roots for mycorrhizae and other beneficial soil microbes to consume. In turn, the mycorrhizae bring water and nutrients to the roots from distances the root cannot reach.
Dig Into The Data: University And Commercial Grower Trials
Over the past four years, we have been compiling data on several different crops in different geographic zones to deepen our understanding of how Holganix Bio 800+ Agriculture can help farmers maximize crops. Click the button below to access a sample from our 2017 and 2018 collection.
