Rhizosafe®

Rhizophagus Irregularis BNL2414

Rhizosafe™ is a biofertiliser based on a selected strain of the naturally occurring beneficial fungus Rhizophagus irregularis BNL2414. Rhizophagus irregularis is an endomycorrhizal fungus which colonises and forms symbiotic relationships with plant roots. It is used as an effective soil inoculant product.

Benefits

  • Rhizosafe™ increases the absorption area of plant roots by almost 50x,
    thus aiding in efficient nutrient and water absorption.
  • Increased Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and micronutrient
    assimilation.
  • Increased root biomass.
  • Improved drought resistance.
  • Faster plant establishment.
  • Improved soil structure.
  • Higher stress tolerance.
  • Resists plant pathogenic nematodes.
  • Rhizosafe™ can be used as an effective component in Integrated
    Nutrient Management (INM) programmes, thereby leading to a
    reduction in use of chemical fertilisers and creating a safer
    environment.

How does it work

The growing roots of plants emit root exudates as they push through the soil substrate. This gives the fungi the signal to colonise the roots and establish symbiosis. The mycorrhiza penetrates the root cortex by
forming nutrient exchange structures such as arbuscules within the root cells. Once roots are colonised, the process is self-sustainable, and the fungus grows inside plant roots producing spores and mycelia. The presence of mycorrhiza affects the composition of microbes in the rhizosphere. Some of these microbes, in association with Rhizosafe™ have a plant growth promoting (PGPR) effect on plant health.
