The Most Advanced Biotechnology for Inoculants
We created the most advanced inoculation technology for sustainable agricultural production. Our formulas guarantee maximum efficiency in the process of Biological Nitrogen Fixation (FBN), essential in the development of legumes.
OPT Technology (Osmo Protective Technology)
The inclusion of osmo protective technology promotes a high metabolic and physiological performance of the microorganisms that are part of the inoculant.
Through OPT, they are able to survive for longer on the surface of the seed, they are able to better adapt to diverse agricultural environments and they are better equipped to confront adverse situations, such as water and chemical stress.
The internal protection in the microorganisms allows for a seven day application window post inoculation when planting. As a result, there is no need of re-treating the seed if a planting delay occurs within the seven day timeframe.
- Superior cellular protection.
- Extended survival and enhanced concentration of microorganisms.
- Extremely complementary with insecticides and fungicides.
- Greater viability in packaging.
- Wide window of opportunity for planting.
Bio Induction Technology
Rizobacter is the first company to develop a bioinstigator, biotechnology that allows for the nutrition and protection from abiotic stress of legumes.
The process of Bio Induction generates molecular signals that activate early on the metabolic processes in microorganisms and plants. It allows for the growth of the legumes, as a result of a greater activity of the rhizosphere and a more effective nodulation.
- Promotes a more effective nodulation resulting in greater amount of beneficial nodules that are the acceptable size, desirable weight and are strategically placed on the root.
- Maximizes the Biological Fixation of Nitrogen.
- Improves crop behavior in abiotic stressful situations, such as low temperatures, water shortages and acidity of the soil.
- Helps resist diseases through defensive activated signals.
- Activates microbial and vegetable physiology.
- Acts on the germination and development of the crop.
Long Life Inoculant technology allows the seeds to be treated 60 days before planting, along with fungicides and insecticides. This gives way to long survival of microorganisms, something unthought-of when it comes to the integration of inoculants with products of a chemical origin.
LLI Inoculants have become a powerful ally in the cutting-edge seeding industry, which offer ready to plant seeds of superior quality. The professional care ensures adequate application rates with greater uniformity and distribution of the product, essential in an effective practice.
This technology marks a turning point in the inoculation because it solves the historic problem behind the inoculation practice, the available time needed to keep the microorganism alive over the seed, an essential condition for an effective nodulation
- Allows for a more efficient and sustainable production system.
- Saves the producer time.
- Ensures the quality of the treatment and allows for the reduction of the density of the planting rate.
- Improves the implementation and emergence of the crop.
Inoculant Technology Resistant to Drought and High Temperatures.
Rizobacter developed a technology that promotes the nodulation and the efficent Biological Nitrogen Fixation, even under adverse conditions that may affect the survival of the microorganisms, such as high temperatures and drought.
This technology was developed to provide a sustainable and adaptable response to Global Warming, which translates into water and thermal stress levels that affect the productivity of the crops. There was also a need of opening up the possibility of better production to environments of limited resources, which put in danger the survival of the Inoculant, the symbiosis and the productivity of the soybean plant.
As a result of the “Induced Natural Selection”, the inoculant is prescribed on the bases of microbial population, resistance and adaptability to great degrees of difficulty, resulting in improved nodulation, even under stressful conditions of drought and high temperatures.
- Mitigates the effects of the main problems that occur during the inoculation process.
- Increases the production of nodules, the nodular dry mass and the vegetative biomass.
- Tolerates below optimal conditions of storage and planting.
- Provides advantages in marginal areas.
More Concentration, More Power
All our inoculants include a High Concentration HC formula that offers a smaller dosage application with the highest microorganism concentration on the seed.
This way we are able to improve the effectiveness of the pre-planting treatments and we optimize the integration of the inoculant with other products, such as insecticides, nematicides, stimulants, enhancers, fertilizers and polymers.
- Superior concentration of microorganisms per ml of the product.
- • The HC formula is more concentrated and stable which allows for the reduction of dosages in comparison to traditional formulas (from 33% to 45%), depending on the product.
- The metabolic and physiological activities of the microorganisms in the interior of the inoculant remain highly effective during a longer period.
- Professional seeding treatment process is simplified.
- Favorable logistics with the reduction of the product needed for the same volume of seed coverage.
- As a sustainably developed product it uses less materials for its production (water, containers, plastic and carton).
To ensure the efficiency of our inoculants we:
- Carry out quality tests to guarantee the efficiency of our inoculants
- Count our microorganisms by measuring how many of them go to the seed with the inoculant.
- Evaluate nodules by counting how many nodules are on the root of our soybean plant and other legumes. We also observe the positioning of the nodules and thanks to our technology we are able to have increased nodule counts on the primary root of the plant. This ensures a more effective nutrient transfer and energy utilization in the development of the crop.
- Measure the nodular dry mass. The number of nodules is important, however, mass is a vital criteria. With greater mass, the development of Biological Fixation of Nitrogen is very effective.
An excellent inoculant can achieve a concentration of more than 10 billion bacteria per milliliter of inoculant. To achieve this bacterial concentration, the manufacturing process is very important. The technology used in the elaboration must maintain strict conditions of asepsis for the management of microorganisms.
How are the nodules formed for Biological Nitrogen Fixation?
The inoculation of seeds is a biotechnological process by which two different types of living creatures come together: a microsymbiont (rhizobium) and a macrosymbiont (seed of a legume plant). After the union, the common structure developed is called the nodule. It is there where the beneficiary processes for both parts take place. The legume is the carbonated source needed by the microorganism and the rhizobium provides the nitrogen needed to produce proteins.
Through our investigative and manufacturing programs we are able to select very specific microorganisms that can associate with the plants to enhance the productivity of the crop.
The development of the crop is greatly conditioned by the availability of nitrogen. Legumes, like soybean, because of its high protein content, must accumulate great quantities of this nutrient (nitrogen) and it cannot be only supplied by the soil. Through inoculation, the Biological Nitrogen Fixation provides a great part of the total nitrogen needed to obtain good growth and quality grains that have a high protein concentration.
What is an Inoculant?
An Inoculant is a biologically prepared solution that is applied in the treatment of seeds, industrially produced with groundbreaking technology, which allows the selected microorganism to stay alive and active so they may fixate the nitrogen to the existing crop. These are the pillars on which this high quality technology are based:
- Selection of microorganisms and strains according to their capacity to fixate nitrogen.
- The strategies of cellular protection through the use of external microorganism protectors.
- The incorporation of new substances that guarantee the survival of the microorganisms.
An excellent inoculant can concentrate up to 10 billion microorganisms for 1 ml of inoculant. The manufacturing process is very important in order to get the microorganism concentration just right. When using microorganisms, the technology to be used in their elaboration must follow strict conditions of sterility.
Advantages of the Inoculation
- Ensures greater capacity in attaching nitrogen.
- Increases yield per acre.
- Improves the quality of the grains.
- Environmental friendly practice.
- Demands low cost per acre.
