Eustis, Florida, February 14, 2009- BorrePlex CA, (a new calcium lignosulphonate soil amendment) has shown to increase yields on average of 10% to 30% across a variety of crops and regions of the world, depending on the application rate. BorrePlex Ca also increases macro and micro nutrients uptake in plants and increase microbial count in the soil. Now researchers at Delaware Biotechnology Institute have just disclosed another fascinating mechanism to explain increased plant growth.

Using the same technique described in Planta 2007, Dr. Harsh Bais of the Delaware Biotechnology Institute has revealed in a series of images that BorrePlex binds plant growth promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR), to plant roots. Such binding promotes auxin response for enhanced growth. According to Dr. Bais there are no other known elicitors which would trigger such a response.

BorrePlex CA is used by many farmers in numerous countries as an organic and readily available source of calcium and sulfur. In addition, the lignin backbone is a highly charged complex which pulls nutrients tied in the soil and binds them to its surface for uptake by the roots. Lignin is the second most abundant organic molecule in living plants after cellulose and accounts for 30% of plant mass. As such it is also a renewable source of food for soil microbes, which are essential for nitrogen fixation to root zones and nutrient uptake by plants. Lignin also serves as a soil moisturizer by attracting water to its surface. Now, with proof that it also binds bacteria to root zone, BorrePlex CA offers five distinct benefits to growers and best yet, it is a renewable resource derived from trees.

To view pictures or rhizo bacteria binding to root zone or to download research articles and yield studies on Borreplex CA log to provides environmentally friendly soil amendments, organic calcium, inoculants, soil aeration solutions, and high grade chelated plant nutrients for increased yields and decrease use of traditional fertilizers and pesticides.
