Microstym is a special complex of soil symbiotic fungi combined with Microtech Complex Activator, which promotes fast interaction between plants and roots.
In this mutualistic interaction, both benefit from mycorrhization: the fungus colonizes the roots of the plant, while the plant provides the fungus with organic matter (sugars, proteins, vitamins).
Where Microstym develops, plants are healthier, more vigorous and less susceptible to environmental stress.
The Microtech TX Activator is a complex of microorganisms activated with a special organic matter, which plays a strong action against several fungal pathogens in many ways:
– Rapid colonization of the rhizosphere;
– Production of chitinolytic enzymes that allow the Microtech TX complex to penetrate the host;
– Production of fungistatic substances that prevent the growth of pathogens, reducing chances of infection;
– Stimulation of plant development, with increased production of roots, leaves and stems; better efficiency in the absorption of mineral salts and macro and microelements.
This special group of microbes has a strong antagonistic activity against several soil-borne pathogens.
The Microtech SX Activator is composed of a group of microorganisms with characteristics between fungi and bacteria. These joint features contribute to greater development of the plant’s roots.
The growth-promoting activity is carried out through different processes: one of the most significant is the release of hormone-like substances that stimulate proliferation, multiplication and growth of root cells in the rhizosphere.
This activator stimulates the production of many useful vegetal substances, such as siderophores (organic substances that chelate iron), microelements, vitamins, amino acids and organic acids.
The Microtech SBX belongs to the PGPR group and includes species of bacteria isolated from the rhizosphere with several beneficial features.
These bacteria help plants overcome the stress caused by several fungal pathogens that attack both the aerial and the root systems.
Its activity is conducted through different mechanisms such as: degrading production of enzymes secreted when bacteria approach the fungus; stimulation of plant self-defenses; competition with pathogens for space and nutrients.
Moreover, the species of the Microtech SBX influence and promote plant growth by producing substances with phytohormonal action.
Microtech PX (Soppressione patogeni
Microtech PX is a high concentrated activator containing multitasking microbes exercising antagonistic activity against nematodes.
The nematode biocontrol activity is related to the production of ring structures that swell and trap nematodes passing through. The nematodes are then enzymatically degraded and used as nourishment by the fungus.
Tests have shown that the use of these fungi in soils that undergone sterilization (chemical agents, solarization, steam) has maintained the nematode level below the damage threshold for more years compared to soils without fungi.
Microtech MX is a mixture of pathogenic fungi that penetrate the host insect through its exoskeleton by producing chitinolytic enzymes.
Once the fungus is inside the host, it develops and eats it leading to its death.
The insects that survive are however limited in their movements, and are not able to eat and represent a source of infection to other insects.
