Endo Tray 10x for spraying seedlings in a tray
The mycorrhizal fungus forms a network of hyphae, which provides the root with nutrients and water. Based on this important transport task, it works as an additional absorption system for the root. The Trichoderma promote root growth and resistance. The rhizobacteria fix nitrogen, free phosphorus and produce plant growth hormones. The powdery product is mixed with water and applied by spraying.
Thorough mulching is the key to success for the next agricultural cycle. Lignotiva® provides for a sustainable and gentle use of the soil. The product accelerates the conversion of plant residues to humus, which decreases the proliferation of unwanted organisms. The microorganisms create ideal growing conditions in the soil for the following crop.
The microorganisms produce digestive enzymes that accelerate the decomposition of crop residues. Valuable nutrients are released in this process. Bacillus species employ amylases and cellulases to hydrolyse starch and celluloses. They are supported by the beneficial fungi Trichoderma and Penicillium which digest lignin, a component that is usually extremely resistant to microbial break down. Their rotting activity sets nitrogen free that is readily available in the soil. Apply Lignotiva® Plus to break down plant residues prior to the planting of vegetables or potatoes.
Vitabac® is a bacterial soil and root inoculant for all plant species. The product is of a powdery texture and available as a standard or a five times concentrated blend. The bacteria colonize the root surface and the immediate adjacent area, the so-called "rhizosphere". These already quite well researched "rhizobacteria" are well known as “plant growth promoting rhizobacteria“(PGPR) in English literature because of their growth promoting effect on plants. The bacteria fix atmospheric nitrogen in the soil and solubilize bound phosphates, to make them available to plants. They also produce plant growth hormones that stimulate root growth (Gibberellins and Cytokinins). The plants develop stronger roots and more nutrients become available. This leads to an increased stress tolerance, uniform growth with less fertilizer use and better crops.

Bactiva® is a water dispersible soil inoculant which strengthens the plant root and enhances the resistance. The product is of a powdery texture and contains a highly potent strain of Bacillus subtilis and several species of the beneficial fungus Trichoderma which strengthen plants in a natural way. Bactiva® is a rooting agent that stimulates the growth of roots through bacteria that produce plant hormones (Gibberellins, Cytokinins), such as Bacillus megaterium and Pseudomonas fluorescens. The bacteria and Trichoderma stimulate strong root growth throughout the entire growing period. In addition, they are indispensable tools during the plant germination phase or during the restoration of damaged roots. The bacteria fix nitrogen and make chemically inaccessible phosphorus soluble. Thereby they provide elements which plants cannot take up otherwise. Biostimulants excite the biological activity of the soil. In association with the microbial ingredients, they enhance the level of cell division and lateral bud development, whereas the aging process of plant tissues is delayed.
Beneficial microorganisms for crop production.
The German Bactiva GmbH is part of the international Bactiva Group, an alliance of companies in Europe and North America with more than 60 employees.
The Bactiva Group hosts a microbiological laboratory and a strain collection, as well as several production sites and an international team of microbiologists and agronomists. The Group is focused on the treatment of roots with microorganisms that boost plant growth. Each year these products treat over 100,000ha corn, thirty million tree seedlings and 2.5 billion vegetable seedlings. Our microorganisms are applied to the entire range of grains, vegetables, ornamentals, trees, shrubs and lawns.
Bactiva GmbH in Germany works in close cooperation with the Bactiva Group to develop and support technology solutions for customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Since 2010 our company is located in Straelen, close to the Netherlands and in the midst of the German and Dutch technology cluster for vegetable and flower greenhouse production. Also since 2010 Bactiva GmbH has partnered with the German peat moss Company Gramoflor to develop microbial inoculants for substrates (MO-Concept®)
The soil is rich in bacteria and fungi that benefit plants. They form a long-term relationship with plant roots and the surrounding rhizosphere. By the use of our soil-borne microorganisms we aim to optimize the supply of water and nutrients for the plants, thus enhancing their vitality and resistance.
