The treatments to give new life to exhausted and problematic soils.
In difficult agronomic conditions it may seem complicated to reach a high level of yield and quality. Soil is one fundamental element for plant growth and has to be maintained fertile and vital to support the full production potential of crops.
With the use of the pre-biotic and pro-biotics VHERA LIFE and VHERA it is possible to re-establish optimal conditions for the root ecosystem in difficult soil conditions.
Planting the same crop in the same field over time can lead to soil exhaustion, a condition of imbalance that affects some or all of the factors characterizing the soil-plant system. Alterations can affect soil organic matter, nutrient availability, populations of beneficial microbes, virulence of bacteria, viruses and fungi and even the concentration of toxic substances. In a hostile and resource-depleted soil, plants suffer a sheer drop of growth and productivity.
How to improve the rhizosphere ecosystem
The rhizosphere hosts a huge number of beneficial microorganisms (rhizobiome), with which plants establish profitable bonds (mutualism). These "good microbes" stimulate root development, fertilize the substrate and help the plant thrive even in the presence of underground adversities. The study of these mechanisms led to the development of VHERA LIFE and VHERA: the first formulations for agriculture with prebiotic and probiotic action.
VHERA LIFE is the prebiotic. Its formulation based on seaweed and plant extracts rich in terpenes has a high biological value, promotes the multiplication and activation of the beneficial microorganisms of the rhizosphere, simultaneously promoting the development and branching of the root.
VHERA is the probiotic. It supplies beneficial microorganisms that repopulate and strengthen the rhizobiome, promoting the maintenance of vegetative-productive functions even in unfavorable soil conditions.
The benefits of VHERA LIFE & VHERA
Applied in fertigation, VHERA LIFE and VHERA allow to preserve optimal production and quality levels, even on poor and problematic soils. This strategy is completely innovative and can be integrated with the pre-existing ones. The crop develops a large and robust root system, replaces malfunctioning roots and maintains an absorption capacity that preserves its optimal vegetative-productive development despite adversities.
VHERA LIFE and VHERA are allowed in organic farming.
