Beneblend GH is a liquid soilless probiotic designed to foster a healthy soil ecology and boost plant’s systemic acquired resistance to environmental stresses. This product aids in balancing microbial communities and populates soils with the beneficial communities of your choosing.
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 up to 5X faster than disease organisms and outcompete for space and resources, keeping the disease in check.
Beneblend GH 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 GH 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 GH in your management practices may maximize the efficiency of fertilizers by increasing natural nutrient cycling and solubilizing soil nutrient reserves when used as directed.
‘Generally speaking, plant health and plant quality has improved. That is evident in plant color, foliage color, flower weight, stem weight, and stem caliper. We have had crazy production this spring and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of performance we’re going to get this fall.‘
Pete Schouten – Head Grower, Cut Flower Division, Burnaby Lake Greenhouses.
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 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 GH is just another tool for Horticultural managers. Albeit, a darn good one.
