Bacillus megaterium phosphaticum

This bacterium which is existing in our nature splits the phytin ( 6 phosphate moleclules placed in ring-shape) which is embedded in organic substances.

The split-up phosphate remains in a mobile form, bevore it is taken on by the plant or embedded into various phosphor pools. 


Application with AKRA Straw R.

Bacillus megaterium phosphaticum can be sprayed on all harvest rests like straw, stubbs, chaff material or just on the farmland.

It is very UV–resistent and therefore does not necessarily have to be worked into the soil. If it is mixed into the soil together with harvest rests though, the activity of this bacteria is essentially more efficient.

Bacillus megaterium phosphaticum can react with any kind of eco-fertilizer in the soil, split organically bound phosphates and thereby make it absorbable for the plant.

According to our previous and recent research, this bacteria can - according to available organic substance -
mobilise up to 30 kg Phosphor (P) per hectare.

By use of AKRA Kombi this mobilised phosphor kan be kept in plants´available form and a fixation (ageing) can be prevented to a far extent.
