BENEFICIAL MICROBES IN AGRICULTURE

Microbrials, or microbes, are useful for crop nutrition and pest management. The challenge with beneficial microbes has always been how to deliver them to the farm in a viable form. 3Bar Biologics has overcome this challenge with LiveMicrobe™ technology to deliver beneficial microbes at their peak viability.

GLOBAL TRENDS

Biologicals, such as microbial biofertilizers, microbial biostimulants and microbial biopesticides, help meet the agricultural industry’s and society’s demands for better, more economic and socially responsible products.

About this image: Lake Erie’s algae blooms are caused when rainfall washes fertilizer and manure spread on large farm fields into streams that flow into Lake Erie. This fuels a bumper crop of algae each year that can make water toxic to fish, wildlife, and people. This bloom in 2017 covered more than 700 square miles.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR MICROBIALS

Above, below and inside plants, beneficial microbes have untapped potential for farming

New modes of action to fight resistance combined with integrated pest management tools

Address many abiotic stresses including drought, salinity, thermal tolerance and others

Meet the demand for natural and more sustainable products with less environmental concerns

Much faster to market than synthetic chemicals although biostimulants  regulations under review

Multiple application methods including seed treatment, foliar, and in-furrow; in-furrow is used on 25-30% US corn acres today and expected to increase by 50% by 2020
