Soil bound nutrients
Providing natural stimulation and enhancement for healthy growth, better yields and increased quality
Cilus® Plus is a microbial preparation containing a very high concentration of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain IT45 isolated through Lallemand Research.
The bacteria Bacillus IT45 contained in Cilus® Plus will rapidly populate the rhizosphere (root zone) by feeding on the root exudates produced by the crop. In return the feeding rhizobacteria secrete enzymes (phytases) and other metabolites that enable a better uptake of plant nutrients such as phosphorus and metallic ions.
The overall result is healthier plants, healthier soil, better growth, higher yields and improved quality.
The bacteria Bacillus IT45 provides several significant benefits to crop plants:
- Stimulating the start-up of young plants.
- Improving soil exploration by roots, allowing better nutrient and water uptake.
- Enhancing the productivity of plants, allowing better growth, yield and quality.
