Innovative Technologies

Rizobacter is a leader in agricultural inoculant research and development, with well-established technologies that enhance crop growth. Their products deliver consistent performance in less-than-ideal environmental conditions, to ensure crops are not limited by inoculant performance and nitrogen fixation.

OSMO PROTECTOR TECHNOLOGY

Strengthens the cell walls of rhizobial bacteria through a longer, stress-inducing manufacturing process. This enhances on-seed survival and performance through added protection against adverse conditions including high temperature, low moisture availability and chemical (seed treatment) stresses.

BIO-INDUCER TECHNOLOGY

To accomplish nodulation, plant roots and rhizobial bacteria commuicate using various chemical signals. This starts with a plant's roots releasing compounds to signal nearby rhizobia that the plant is a receptive host. In turn, rhizobia respond with additional chemical signals (called nodulation determinants) initiating the nodulation process. 

These nodulation determinants include:

  • Nod Factors – Chemical compounds released by the rhizobia bacteria signaling the plant to initiate nodulation
  • Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) – Long chain fatty acid molecules responsible for the development of the infection tube
  • Type Three Secretion System (T3SS) – A protein structure used to transport substances between the cells of the rhizobia and the plant

Bio-Inducer Technology assists by stimulating earlier production of specific nodulation determinants through introducing rhizobia to plant-based signaling compounds, called Bio-Inducer components, during the manufacturing process. These compounds mimic what plant roots release naturally in the soil inducing the rhizobia to respond by releasing nodulation determinants, just as if they were already in the presence of a receptive host.

The early presence of these nodulation determinants accelerates the nodulation process in the soil and improves nodulation on a plant’s crown and primary roots, where nodules are most effective. This maximizes nitrogen fixation and yield potential, and delivers more consistent performance under all conditions.

Protect Against Pod Shatter with Pod DefendR®

Posted: Sep 22, 2021

With Jesse Mutcheson

The subject of pod shatter has been on the minds of canola growers in Western Canada for some time now. Without protection against it — not only can pod shattering result in significant harvest losses, but it also limits the options you have to harvest your canola crop.

That’s why the recent introduction of Pod DefendR, canola with shatter-tolerant technology from BrettYoung and canola breeding partner DL Seeds, has the potential to be a game-changer for your fields.

Forage and Turf Seed Production Market Update

Posted: Sep 16, 2021

Growing forage and turf seed is a great way not only to diversify the risk and spread out your farm workload, but to also be able to take advantage of two separate uses from a single field – income from the seed crop, and also the straw and forage regrowth that is produced as a by-product in some crops.
