DESCRIPTION

OMRI listed MICROP provides the effects of a green manure crop without taking the land out of production. Used as a companion planting, the legume-like microalgae and cyanobacteria act as an input for maintaining maximum crop yields. MICROP is a concentrated formula of selected algal and cyanobacteria microbes in dormant form in a base of kaolin clay. Once applied to the soil, these cyanobacteria come out of dormancy and colonize the soil surface by cell division, providing many agronomic benefits.

BENEFITS

  • Fixing nitrogen
  • Liberating calcium and phosphates
  • Decreasing salinity
  • Improving soil tilth, and
  • Supplying plant growth hormones
  • Decreasing compaction
  • Improved soil aggregation
  • Reduced soil erosion

CHARACTERISTICS

The intercropped microscopic plants add organic matter as they grow in the field with the cash crops. The added fertility from nitrogen fixation helps to reduce fertilizer needs. This modern green manure product offers growers an ecologically sound method to improve soil properties and enhance productivity. Research has shown that MICROP improves soil tilth, decreases compaction, crusting, and erosion. The growing cyanobacteria produce polysaccharides (humus material) to increase soil aggregation and build soil crumb structure. Research data also suggests the ability of these microbes to solubilize rock phosphate, making phosphorous more available to the growing crop. The combination of these results makes MICROP an ideal technology for handling a wide range of soil problems.
