BioBoost Liquid for Canola
BioBoost Liquid for canola is an innovative plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). The active ingredient is the micro-organism Delftia acidovorans, which is active in the soil and rapidly colonizes the root zone of a canola plant. It is applied as post-emergent spray at the 0 to 6 leaf stage. For ease of application BioBoost Liquid can be tank mixed with glyphosate and applied with the first post-emergent application.
Average yield response in trials conducted in North Dakota and Minnesota (2007 to 2010) is 6.3%.
How It Works
The active ingredient, the bacteria Delftia acidovorans, is active in the soil. It is attracted to root exudates and will move toward growing roots where it will multiply and colonize the root zone. The bacteria has a number of beneficial modes of action that positively impact plant root growth; this ultimately supports higher yields, depending upon environmental and soil conditions.
Modes of Action
- The organism is a known sulphur oxidizer and may make more sulphur plant-available; and/or
- The organism may stimulate root and root hair development, thus helping the plant access more water and nutrients in limiting environmental conditions; and/or
- The organism is an aggressive root colonizer and may out-compete other soil microbes.
