Rise™ P is a product developed by the agronomy department of Lallemand, which is a research pioneer and a leading producer of microorganisms in the world. The preparation contains a specially selected IT45™ strain of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens.
The rhizosphere is a unique area in soil due to the impact of roots. It is in this zone that every plant is nourished, but it is also a place where root exudates are collected. These are all simple and complex substances (vitamins, organic acids, sugars, proteins, etc.) that are secreted by the root system due to its reaction to constantly changing soil conditions and the composition of the soil environment, e.g. the presence of certain microorganisms. This root secretion consists of 10 to 50% of all photosynthesis products (mainly sugars). It provides food for soil bacteria, being a kind of “bio-fuel” for soil life. Soil bacteria in many cases colonization of the root system bring many advantages along with their presence. An example of such microorganisms are bacteria of the IT45™ Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain, which are nourished by root exudate, instead stimulating and creating extremely positive conditions for root system growth, dissolving and making available soil phosphorus unavailable to the plant. In this way, along with the growth of the root system and the production of food substances for the IT45™ strain, once applied bacteria grow at a dizzying rate during the growing season of the plant, making phosphorus available for further root development, thereby stimulating its continuous growth. This, in turn, is a great example of positive symbiosis in soil. In addition to these advantages, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain IT45™ form a kind of biofilm which is a “protective barrier” against unwanted microorganisms, fungal spores as well as changes in soil pH or salinity.
The amount of phosphorus in the plant is mainly due to the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil, and thus the possibility of making this ingredient available to the plant. It depends much less on phosphorus fertilization itself. The goal is to “extract” phosphorus, which is bound in the form of inorganic polyphosphates or organic phosphates, which is what the mentioned bacteria of the IT45™ strain provide.
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens are very safe microorganisms for both the environment and man. They are resistant to adverse weather conditions, such as high temperatures and drought, and the correspondingly high concentration ensures operation in all soil conditions and in different climates. In addition, the IT45™ strain has been specially developed for agronomy applications from a collection of 1,800 other strains with similar properties through thousands of experiments carried out in top-class laboratories.
