Bacillus mycoides BNL904
Silisol™ is a biological soil inoculant based on a selected strain of the naturally occurring beneficial bacterium Bacillus mycoides BNL904. B. mycoides solubilises silica and provides the plant with strength to tolerate biotic and abiotic stresses, imparts drought resistance/tolerance, and improves its resistance to pest and disease attack. It is suitable for root zone soil drenching. It can also be mixed with organic fertilisers and other microbial seed dressing products. Silicate solubilizing bacteria are known to play an efficient role in increasing soil fertility, as they not only solubilize insoluble silica but also aid in solubilizing potassium and phosphates, sequentially resulting in increased plant productivity.
