Microorganisms with target function

We perform dozens of tests annually since 2016 in the farms and the Lithuanian research centre for agriculture and forestry institute with Biomas microorganisms to monitor the impact on soil and productivity and health of crops. Even with the application of crop production methods that increase biodiversity – crop rotation, cultivation of catch crops, leaving plant residues, the benefits provided by microorganisms are significant. Please find the results below.

Efficacy confirmed by scientists

Since 2016 we have tested 320 different variants of Biomas microorganism technology. Bioversio bioengineers collaborate with three departments of the Lithuanian research centre for agriculture and forestry institute: Plant Nutrition and Agroecology, Plant Pathology and Protection, and Soil and Crop Production.

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.
