Product Range

In the areas of biology, soil remediation and seaweed products, we use and only endorse the use of the Bactivate® range of products. These products are scientifically developed and have a proven track record throughout Australia. Using the Bactivate range as part of the Soil Health Plan, gives us greater improvements and better results for any crop that has a root.


Bactivate

Bactivate is a granular Microbial Soil Conditioner composed of 5 specific Bacillus species (listed below) that enhance plant growth and protection.

These beneficial rhizobacteria promote plant growth directly and/or indirectly by:

  • Producing plant regulators
  • Facilitating nutrient uptake
  • Accelerating mineralisation
  • Reducing plant stress
  • Providing nitrogen fixation
  • Promoting other beneficial micro-organisms such as ‘mycorrhizal fungi’
  • Suppressing plant diseases, and
  • Functioning as nematicides and insecticides

Bactivate:

  • can be broadcast through normal spreading machines (low rotation needed).
  • can be stored up to 3 years (covered, dry and out of direct sunlight).
  • is easy to apply.

Bactivate PlusLiquid

Bactivate Plus Liquid is a unique combination of Bacillus bacterium, humate and NPK fertiliser, developed to represent a complete fertiliser/soil rebuilder, providing essential nutrients to the soil structure and simultaneously developing biological activity within the soil structure.

This blend is specially designed for Turf, Pasture, Ovals, Landscapers, Bowling Greens and Golf Courses.

Bactivate Plus Liquid incorporates:

  • Five specific Bacillus bacterium
  • Important Trace Elements
  • Humic Acid, Organic Matter, and Organic Nitrogen

This combination will improve and replenish tired, nutrient deficient soils.

Bactivate Plus Liquid:

Bactivate Seaweed Solution

Bactivate Seaweed Solution is a fresh seaweed extract combined with other mineral and food sources. It contains bioactive natural substances produced without the overuse of chemicals and heat.

Bactivate Seaweed Solution is an ideal organic liquid fertiliser for agriculture, floriculture and horticulture.

Bactivate Seaweed solution contains a range of naturally occurring substances including:

  • beneficial acids,
  • chelating agents,and
  • trace elements.

Bactivate Seaweed Solution can:

  • improve flower and fruit set,
  • improve photosynthesis,
  • assist in biological stimulation,
  • reduce stress caused by heat and frost, and
  • often increase crop quality and yield.

Bactivate BioBoost

Bactivate BioBoost+ is an organic biostimulant enriched with calcium. Bactivate BioBoost+:

  • replenishes much needed nutrients in the soil;
  • feeds plant root development stimulating plant growth;
  • binds the soil, reducing soil erosion; and
  • is hydrophilic, readily absorbing moisture.

Bactivate BioBoost+ primarily contains salts of carbonic acids such as saccharinic, aldonic and formic acids, which function as fertilisers and stimulate root development. The hydroscopic properties of the carbonic acid salts in Bactivate BioBoost+ increase water absorption and retention as well as encourage the biological life of the soil and the production of beneficial bacteria.

By stimulating the microbial processes in the soil, it aids in the decomposition of organic materials, which allow nutrients to be released back into the soil. This process allows the soil to be better aerated and receptive to supporting

plant growth, subsequently improving water percolation, drainage and vitality within the soil.

The benefits of Bactivate BioBoost+ extend beyond the soil. As an organic bio-stimulant it is very effective when used on the foliage of growing plants.

All the products in the Bactivate range, including Bioboost+ are designed to work together to enhance results.

What is BioBoost+


Bactivate Shield

Bactivate Shield is a microbial soil ameliorant composed of live beneficial microorganisms that enhances the plant growth and help address the impact of certain plant pathogens, especially Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizotonia, Aspergillus, and others.

The right bacteria in the right soil can do more than just break down organic matter, build the soil structure, fix nitrogen and release phosphorus and potassium from the soils. However, the key is having the right micro-organisms. Paenibacillus polymyxa SQR 21, which is a ubiquitous bacterium commonly found in soils, is present in Bactivate Shield. Trichoderma viride SQR T37 is a fungus and is also present in Bactivate Shield.

Bactivate Shield:

  • It can be broadcast, through normal spreading machines – low rotation needed.
  • It can be applied with and during the planting of seeds or applying other types of fertilisers.
  • It can be stored up to 18 months from purchase unopened, in a dry place and out of direct sunlight.
