Biomex DusterQuick Enquiry
Biomex Duster is a natural product containing spores of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, a non-pathogenic micro-organism occuring naturally in the soil. The formulation of Biomex Duster is an insoluble powder containing the living spores with talc acting as the carrier.
Biomex Duster is used to stimulate the growth of roots through colonisation of the plant roots, which increases plant tolerance to abiotic stress.
Biomex Duster is suitable for potato seed dressing or mixing with soil. For best results apply as a seed coating. Efficacy will be optimised when soil temperatures exceed 10°C.
Biomex Duster works by colonising the roots of the growing plant with the beneficial bacteria Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. The colonies secrete compounds in the vicinity of the root hairs that help to increase availability and uptake of nutrients, resulting in improved germination, improved rooting and increased plant vigour, leading to earlier bulking.
The benefits of Biomex Duster are likely be greatest in soils with a low organic matter content or naturally low microbial activity, because of the lower levels of Bacillus already present in the soil.
Neither phytotoxic nor phytopathogenic effects have been observed in greenhouse and field trials.
