Select, beneficial, synergistic microbes containing key species to help restore the benefits of a more natural ecosystem
Intensively managed soils are typically denuded of important microbial communities. The use of a consortia of synergistic bacteria, containing key species, is to help restore the benefits of a more natural ecosystem, aiding in soil regeneration and the availability of plant available nutrients.
Each biological product contains select biology, with a known performance within the soil, with the security of genetic integrity of the selected microbes by obtaining specific strains from registered ‘genetic banks’. This means Aiva Fertiliser can use consortia of synergistic bacteria containing key species to help restore the benefits of a more natural ecosystem. Each specific strain has been tested with various growth media in the fermentation process to ensure that sufficient numbers of microbes can be grown economically.
Our fermenters are both ISO 9001 and 14001 accredited and carry out a range of quality control checks for microbial counts and contaminants. The viability of the microbial products are also tested to well in excess of the pressures used in spraying equipment 60 – 700 bar to ensure ease of use.
The strains we use in this product were originally sourced from accredited repositories. As we carry out a continual programme of product improvement by selective cultivation, our strains our sent back to the German DSMZ culture collection to carry out multi locus sequencing to confirm that the microbes we are using are still the same species (selective cultivation slightly changes the genetic make-up of the microbe so this is a part of our standard quality control). Once the species has been confirmed, because of the slight genetic changes from the original, it is a assigned a new, unique strain number. This is why we can state that we use unique selected strains in our formulations.
OF&G registered – Approved for use in organic systems!
Aiva Fertilisers suite of pioneering solutions and treatments go through a rigorous product development process, including peer-reviewed research, proof of concept studies, and on farm comparisons.
Thus when choosing a product to use you can be confident that we know what our products do, when and how to apply them (and when not to) how and why they deliver the specific benefits you are looking for in a reliable, robust affordable way.
Our products are developed to support agronomic solutions for regenerative farming systems in aid of increasing efficiency, quality, and crop utilisation. We believe in a systems approach which is why each range can interact synergistically with one another as a part of a working system.
Always remember the importance of testing and analysis.
