Beneblend MJ is a liquid soil probiotic designed to foster a healthy soil ecology and boost a plant’s systemic acquired resistance to environmental stresses. This product aids in balancing microbial communities and populates soils with the beneficial communities correlated to show improved growth. Beneblend MJ is loaded with natural non-pathogenic gram-negative bacteria, general fungi including Trichoderma, free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria, and protozoa of the rhizosphere.
Once activated, microbes release metabolites of volatile fatty acids (VFA’s), organic acids and enzymes into the soil matrix. This aids in releasing locked-up minerals and boosts plant immune functions. Beneficial microbes work 5 – 7X faster than disease organisms and outcompete for space and resources, keeping the potential disease in check.
Beneblend MJ is the first step in Integrated Pest Management that may help reduce infection rates and slow the spread of infection by fostering a competitive soil ecology. Beneblend MJ may allow you the time to diagnose and target specific infection sites before significant monetary loss: reducing over applications of chemical controls and helping to mitigate pathogen resistance to chemical treatments. Incorporating Beneblend MJ in your management practices may maximize the efficiency of fertilizers by increasing natural nutrient cycling and solubilizing soil nutrient reserves when used as directed.
As you can see in the illustrations below, simply filling the space left by a chemical application prevents the vacuum effect. However, the unintended consequence of fighting the vacuum effect with more chemistry creates a dependency cycle. Disease organisms can adapt to increased applications, leading to resistance and undermining the effectiveness of the very tools we so considerably require in performance horticultural management. Implementing a biological approach will help fight against disease chemical resistance, provide vigorous roots, cycle tied up nutrients, and compete with diseases.
Implementing a biological approach in horticultural management should not be seen as a replacement for chemical pesticide use. Instead, we recommend using in conjunction with and rotation with conventional practices. Therefore, Broadspec Technology incorporated in BeneBlend MJ is just another tool for horticultural managers. Albeit, a darn good one.
