 Product Description:

Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant is a Microbial Inoculant which assists with the prevention, control and suppression of soil borne and foliar diseases on all agricultural crops. Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant contains the active ingredient Bacillus subtilis GB03 which is a rhizosphere bacterium that quickly establishes beneficial colonies on the plant’s roots and leaves. It stimulates healthier roots, accelerates plant growth and activates the defense system of the plant. Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant is non-selective. Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant is most effective when applied prior to the onset of disease. Use Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant in combination and/or rotation with chemical fungicides to enhance disease control. For use on all outdoor field grown food crops including vegetables, herbs, small fruits, berries and fruit and nut trees. Use in greenhouse plug production and hydroponics operations.

 Modes of Action:

Companion® Liquid Microbial Inoculant has multiple modes of action in preventing, controlling and suppressing plant diseases. It produces a broadspectrum antibiotic (Iturin) that disrupts pathogen cell-wall formation. It is a competitive and fast colonizing rhizosphere bacterium, which occupies the plant’s root hairs and leaves preventing the growth and antagonistic effects of soil borne and foliar pathogens. GB03 is known to stimulate phytohormones, which trigger the plant’s systemic resistance to disease (Induced Systemic Resistance), the defense mechanisms of the plant for prolonged periods of time. It is non-selective to plant materials.

 General Information Turf & Landscape

A Broad-Spectrum Microbial Inoculant Companion is designed to improve overall plant growth and increase root mass by protecting the roots and stimulating new growth. Companion’s fast-colonizing beneficial rhizobacteria, Bacillus subtilis GB03, produce powerful enzymes and auxin-like metabolites which stimulate root growth, increase nutrient uptake and promote turf vigour, and make plants less vulnerable to invading pathogens by increasing the diversity of beneficial microbes.

 The Biological Approach for Turf Management

  • Quickly colonizes roots with beneficial plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria PGPR
  • Creates a shield to protect plant roots
  • Disrupts invading plant pathogens
  • Promotes strong roots by producing enzymes and metabolites
  • Increases nutrient uptake
  • Fights stress by triggering the plant’s immune system (ISR)

 Visualize A Deep, Lush Green

  • See a significant increase in root growth after only 3 months of treatment
  • Increases nutrient uptake
  • Improves turf colour and vigour

 Cultural Management Practice

  • An important tool for IPM (Integrated Pest Management) for turf managers
  • Populates the soil with 100% natural beneficial soil microbes
  • Companion’s multiple modes of action inhibit pathogens’ ability to develop resistance
  • With greater soil microbial diversity, pathogen populations are less likely to occur
