The key to organic farming is to have microbes and the complex natural food web work for you. Farmland needs to get to a healthy complex inderdependent ecosystem of life so that it looks healthy the way that plants and trees look in a forest. For economic reasons, however, blocks and fields of farmland usually focus on a single crop. Therefore, we need to help the integrated web of life along. The following sections explain some of the benefits that are derived by the Natural Biota family of products. If you understand the mechanisms of action and the science, you can have a more informative consultation with your Natural Biota representative.

Microbes are tiny factories that produce enzymes and proteins that can also act as flavor, antibiotics, vitamins, color, sugars, storage vesicles inside plants, and more. Go to Benefits to learn more about what this means to you.

Microbes also work with plants to help plants send out stronger signals for help from beneficial insects, and sometimes help prevent infection from other pathogenic microbes. In fact, most plants cannot even

develop a root hair without mutualistic (symbiotic) assistance from microbes, such as Rhizobia and Frankia. They not only allow bacterial cells to grow and colonize inside the plant and alongside plant cells, they have a need to do so.

In the world of creating microbial cocktails for the benefit of taste, details matter.


If you visit countries such as France, Italy or Croatia to explore local artisanal cheese producers, what can set a product apart? What makes the special award-winning tastes of Pecorino or Paški cheese? If you visit countries such as Russia or Germany to explore their kefir or beer, what are the taste differentiators? It is primarily the microbes and nutrition. Some producers even protect this knowledge – their yeast or bacterial mix is passed down from generation to generation, and the associated microbes are part of the secret recipe that provides rich aromas.

When entering the world of organic or natural microbial fertilizers, everything matters in much the same way. The only reason biological agriculture fertilization companies are not viewed in the same way is because the industry is young. Nevertheless, there are opportunities for tradition and science to learn from one another. Growers and natural fertilizer producers need to collaborate to further improve products and solutions. Based on our experience, this is sometimes more important and a faster development method than to create solutions in the lab.
