Bananas are among the top ten crops globally produced in area and yield - continually reaching seventh or eighth place in worldwide rankings. For about 400 million people in the tropics, bananas are their most significant staple.
BioFlora® launched a sugar cane trial to determine if our sustainable approach to agriculture could help increase germination for more productive fields, sugar content for higher quality returns and build microbial stability to create naturally fertile soils to better protect against pests and disease.
Seedling establishment in sensitive crops is a crucial step in cultivation. Proper seedling transplanting requires the young plants’ ability to overcome what is commonly known as transplant shock. To help farmers with this growing problem, BioFlora formulated and tested a new product, RP Blend (RP is short for root promoter).
Humega was tested on soils that had been mined for tin and coal and were in need of a revegetation program. These soils had a low pH (3.8-4.6), had very low organic matter, low water holding and cation exchange capacity, had the potential for iron deficiency, had a decreased microbe population and were expected to perform in high temperatures.
Our case studies are a true testament to the continued power of our product line; one such example includes the application of our products to fields yielding one of everyone’s favorite fruit: the strawberry.
BioFlora became actively involved in several trials to determine if our sustainable approach to agriculture could help mitigate decades worth of damage, and begin rebuilding the health of many oil palm plantings.
