Bacterial biocontrol product improves potato yields

Now if only Ireland had this product in 1845... Injecting beneficial bacteria into the furrow when planting potatoes could help increase marketable yields and decrease skin blemishes, according to trials.

The microbes in Omex's Biomex Starter - a liquid formulation of the naturally-occurring plant-friendly bacteria Bacillus amyloliquefaciens - improve the release of nutrients from fertilisers, while at the same time help develop rooting and provide the plant with a defence against infection, according to Neil Fuller of Soil Solutions, who has been developing the concept for a number of years.
