Biosol: The All-Organic Natural Fertilizer
Biosol is a 100%
organic long lasting fertilizer with soil improving
consequences. Biosol has a balanced nutrition ratio and supplies
the plant with micro- and macronutrients throughout the whole
growing period. Building the organic matter and humus allows the
soil to become active, allowing the nutrients to be available
for plant intake. It is the high organic material in the Biosol
that improves the humus content of the soil in addition to
providing quality nutrients for plants. The soil is enriched,
rooting is strengthened and the growing and vitality of your
turf is increased, while strengthening the plants resistance
against disease. Biosol lacks salt and is therefore suitable for
greenhouse crops and arid/low precipitation areas. The risk of
nitrate leaching is very low because of the organic fixation of
the nutrients and nitrogen, providing the ultimate use of
nutrients (see Nitrogen release graph).
Biosol is a safe and ecological fertilizer because of the selected raw materials used during the production of the fungal biomass dry mycelium. Since Biosol is 100%
organic, it is safe to use around children and animals.
healthy soil and plants:
In addition to being
100% natural and environmentally balanced, Biosol
promotes good health for both plants and soil. In fact, Biosol
was developed in the same way as slow release vitamins. Biosol's
slow release formula will not burn seed or existing vegetation
and it does not require watering immediately after application.
Nutrients are released continuously throughout the growing
cycle, reducing maintenance costs associated with lesser quality
fertilizers, which require numerous applications. Because of its
low pH, nutrients are more readily available for plant uptake,
rather than being bound in the soil. One of the key factors of
Biosol is its ability to promote a healthy balance of microbes,
insuring the long-term green color and health of your turf and
plants while controlling thatch. This unique blend of nutrients
enables Biosol to stimulate root development, enabling plants of
all kinds to fully absorb essential nutrients for longevity and
maximum health. Biosol enriches the soil, enhances the volume of
positive microbial biomass, and promotes the formation of humus,
all of which results in a healthier, stronger, greener turf,
trees, shrubs and plants. Biosol has a harmless, typical fungal
smell that disappears a few days after application.
Biosol is a proven product for enhancing all types of terrain.
Superior results have been achieved in several golf courses
around the world, sports fields, and recreational facilities,
commercial and residential lawns, gardens, flowers, trees, wood
and forest cultivation, revegetation of ski runs and slopes, and
many different forms of agricultural farming (viticulture,
silviculture, etc.). Biosol is frequently used for both primary
and secondary fertilization and for stimulating soil
microorganisms. Biosol can be dry broadcast or applied with a
hydroseeder. Used under favorable conditions, only one annual
application of Biosol is needed for maximum results. Biosol is
produced in a greens grade so that it may be used
from "Tee to Green" on your golf course.

is used in revegetation projects, such as Road Cuts, Mining
Reclamation, High Altitude Revegetation etc.. Some other uses
are Lawns, Gardens, Flowers, Trees, Viticulture (cultivation of
grapes), Forestry, Vegetable Growing and "Organic Cropping".
Biosol is OMRI listed for the use of organic farming production. Biosol® is also recognized by the USDA as a Bio Preferred product and acceptable to be used on Federal and State projects that require renewable products.
During the manufacture of penicillin, a
fungal biomass (mycelium) is obtained by the fermentation of raw
materials such as: soybean meal, cottonseed meal, sucrose,
lactose, trace elements and vitamins under constant sterile
conditions. The fungus strain used is Penicillium Chrysogenum.
After the penicillin is removed, the remaining biomass is dried
at 110 to 130° C for 3 to 4 hours. During this process the
residual antibiotic is eliminated and the moisture is reduced by
3 to 6%. Finally, the mixture is granulated and placed in 50 pound recyclable plastic bags. Biosol®
is sterilized and free of weed seeds.
96% fungal biomass (dry mycelium), 4% water.
