Your soil should contain not just any microorganisms; it needs those that perform the necessary beneficial functions.

When it comes to viable soil, we project the expectation that plants will have a good soil environment for their development – that it will be one in which they receive all the necessary nutrients and have strong immunity, that organic residues will decompose, and that the environment will not be conducive to disease development. If you apply new crop production methods to help increase biodiversity, such as crop rotation, catch crops and leaving organic residues, the soil will become more viable in the long run. Unfortunately, this does not necessarily mean that sufficient important microorganisms will be ensured in that new biodiversity. Nevertheless, if monoculture crops remain in the fields, the population of microorganisms will still suffer.

Your soil needs those bacteria or microscopic fungi, i.e., microorganisms, that perform specific vital functions. The loss of such microorganisms can be really detrimental. Bioversio develops BIOMAS preparations that help achieve biodiversity, revealing the maximum potential of the soil and your crop production methods.

Sustainable farming today!

From a microbiological point of view, monoculture farming means that certain types of microorganisms begin to dominate the soil, while others are suppressed or killed. This reduces biodiversity: the soil loses useful nutrients, leaving not enough microorganisms to compete with pathogens, thus making plants less resistant to diseases. Disproportionate fertilisation and pesticide use also adversely affect the soil.

Trials have demonstrated that parts of the chemical elements in fertilisers used enter the atmosphere, while other parts leach out and reaches water bodies. The farmer is not to blame for the damage to nature – these crop production technologies have existed for many years, while the excessive use of chemicals has been taken for granted. But now that climate change is becoming a global challenge, many industries need to adopt and implement less polluting practices. The European Commission’s From Farm to Fork programme sets out a strategic direction for more sustainable farming to be achieved by 2030.

We are pleased that the microbiological products and technology we are developing and producing are already helping agronomists and farmers to take important steps to improve soil composition and enjoy richer yields

Harvest benefits

Positive effects on the soil and on yield are already noticeable in the first year of microorganism use. The significant yield supplement from using microorganisms shows that microbiological measures can help unleash the potential of the soil and significantly increase the efficiency of fertilisers applied.

During hundreds of precision and fields trials performed on farms over the past four years, we have seen a stable and pronounced addition to yields through the introduction of microorganisms into cultivation technology

Benefits for soil

Soil biodiversity results in an improvement in all soil quality parameters, as well as an increase in the amount of remaining elements. We are confident that in the near future it will be possible to calculate and provide accurate recommendations to farmers on how and the amount by which to reduce the application of fertilisers, microelements and pesticides. For the time being, we present the results of soil trials at the institute and on farms using BIOMAS microbial technology compared to control data.

Feedback from farmers

I had previously heard a lot about the benefits of microorganisms, but the preparations offered on the market at the time did not convince me of their quality. After I noticed positive results from using BIOMAS products for the first time to spray fields, I decided to continue using them not only for spraying, but also for seed treatment. In farm technology, I use several combinations of Grow and Protect products. These preparations have helped me to achieve higher yields and strengthen the plants before winter.

We constantly carry out precision field trials to confirm the effectiveness of the products manufactured by Bioversio for different types of agricultural crops. Analysing the accumulated results from trials, we see that BIOMAS products developed by Bioversio and their combinations have a positive effect on the qualitative indicators of plant productivity. This allows us to offer the market innovative solutions that help to achieve more stable and cost-effective plant productivity.

I met true professionals at Bioversio who find out about a farmer’s specific situation and suggest the most suitable solution. They are enthusiasts of their own cause, and live and breathe what they do! BIOMAS preparations have been effective for my farm, and I will definitely seek advice from the company’s specialists if necessary.

We use Bioversio microorganisms at our cooperative and perform field trials with them. We noticed that the plants developed better using these, noting an increase when weighing the yield from experimental plots. We are also satisfied that the company not only develops and manufactures products, but also tests them by visiting farmers’ fields, performing comparisons during growing season, providing comparative analyses, and suggesting combinations for the use of preparations.

We think that in the long run, more and more microorganisms will be used in the crop production areas.
