Bioril’s farming customers consist of small and large scale row crop, fruit and vegetable farmers, forage production farmers, cattle ranchers, horse owners, organic farmers and community gardeners.
The best approach to improving the health, productivity and fertility of the soil in your operation is a three-step approach:
First, a Bioril representative will either meet or correspond with the farmer to understand their crop type(s), operation and production goals.
Second, a soil test should be taken to determine the presence and amounts of existing nutrients and minerals, along with the organic percent of the soil. As a minimum, the soil should be tested for potassium, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, pH, cation exchange capacity (CEC), and organic matter percent. As a result of this test, the soil may need to be amended to correct for deficiencies. The various amendments may require application during specific times of the year. Some customers may already have good soil tests for us to review that will allow skipping of this step.
Third, once the soil fertility plan is established, a representative from Bioril will advise the farmer on the best and most cost effective application of the biofertilizer and nitrogen. Soils that have good fertility and organic content require less nitrogen and biofertilizer, and soils with poor soil fertility need higher rates of nitrogen and biofertilizer.
The benefits of using a biofertilization program will show up in the first growing season, but the long term benefits compound every year. A good biofertilization plan will improve the soil health year after year, resulting in the need for less nutrient and mineral inputs, more stable pH, and more drought and stress resistance plants.
Sandy soils can present a challenge for improvement of fertility and consideration should be given to using a soil nutrition and conditioner such as BioEngyn or BioChar in addition to biofertilization.
Agrhizome with SumaGrow Inside
Agrhizome is a concentrated liquid consisting of trillions of living, beneficial bacteria and fungi in a humate carrier. Agrhizome uses the “SumaGrow” microbial formulation that offers the benefits described under “Biofertilization”, and it is unique in the microbiological industry in that it has the most diverse variety of beneficial microbes that offer a wide range of benefits. SumaGrow has been demonstrated to adapt to every kind of soil type around the world.
Agrhizome is used for row crops, vegetables, legumes and fruits.
Similar to Agrhizome, Agrhizome “Forage” is modified to be specific to the grass family.
Agrhizome Forage is used for forages, hay production and pastures.
Organic Farms: Both Agrhizome and Agrhizome Forage are available in versions that have the USDA OMRI-Listed designation.
BioEngyn Soil Nutrition and Soil Conditioning
An all-natural material comprised of lignin and natural enzymes that functions as a wetting agent and a food source for optimum microbe population in the root zone. This substance also acts as a balancing agent for soil pH levels as well as a thermal control method for maintaining soil/ground temperatures during spring planting and fall harvest.
It is available in three versions: One that will help drive pH upward from soils with pH of 5.5 or lower; a version that is used with soils with pH of from 5.6 to 7.4, and one that will help drive the pH downward from soils with pH of 7.5 or higher.
BioEngyn Soil Nutrition and Conditioning works well when paired with biofertilization products
The application rates of Aghrizome and Agrhizome Forage ranges from 0.5 gallons per acre per growing season to 1.5 gallons per acre per growing season. The application rate is dependent on crop or forage type, soil type, soil organic matter and soil fertility.
Split or multiple application rates provide the best results.
Agrhizome and Agrhizome Forage can be co-applied with liquid fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides if completely applied in the day it is mixed together. Agrhizome and Agrhizome Forage should NOT be co-applied with fungicides.
