The microbial basis of Compete Plus exists of essential bacteria and fungi for healthy plant development. The bacteria buffers and supports efficient use of minerals in the soil. Specific strains are selected for their chelating properties, increase in biomass and degradation of organic matter. Other strains are selected for their support on increasing plant tolerances for abiotic stress. Tolerances can be increased due to specific acids, fixation of atmospheric nitrogen and water buffering.
The Trichoderma in Compete Plus is especially selected for its plant-growth promoting effects and increase of dry matter. In addition, this strain also positively supports the chlorophyll content in plants. Bacterial and fungal strains are supported by natural fulvic substances and organic catalysts in order to guarantee fast colonisation and growth in the rhizosphere.
