BeneBlend SC soil probiotic is a highly diversified carbon complex composed of beneficial bacteria, fungi, and protozoa of the forest rhizosphere, designed to help foster overall system function, productivity, and resilience. Developed from multiple highly specific natural deposits, and several naturally humified complexes, BeneBlend SC is triple filtered at 400 microns to ensure uniformity and consistency.
BeneBlend SC fosters a healthy soil predator/prey ecology which helps to release nutrients in the soil solution and consume potentially harmful organisms. Microbial diversity has repeatedly been shown to foster overall ecosystem health, stability and resilience. Beneficial microbiology provides plants with Immune-Boosting Hormones and Plant Growth Promoting Enzymes which serve to strengthen Natural Plant Defense Mechanisms.
BeneBlend SC is the first step in Integrated Pest Management that helps to reduce infection rates and slow the spread of infection by fostering a competitive soil ecology. BeneBlend SC buys you 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 SC in your management practices has been shown to 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 urban forestry 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 turfgrass 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 SC is just another tool for urban forestry managers. Albeit, a darn good one.
