Biofix


About

Biofix is tailored to to meet the needs of leguminous crop such as beans, cowpeas, groundnuts, Soya beans; leguminous pasture crops e.g. Lucerne, desmodium and leguminous tree e.g. sesbania, caliandra. Biofix is simple to use and being an organic product, is environmental friendly. It is tailored for Kenyan soils, has a low labour requirement and is easy to carry and transport. WHY USE BIOFIX: Plants require Nitrogen as a basic necessity for growth and good overall health. Nitrogen needs to be in the form of a soluble compound to be useful to plants. Certain bacteria found in the soil (e.g. Rhizobium) convert atmospheric nitrogen into a form that can be readily absorbed by plants - a process know as nitrogen-fixation Biofix is manufactured through artificially culturing nitrogen-fixing bacteria in a set of controlled conditions. This culture can be stored and transported in liquid or solid form, before being mixed with water and used to treat seeds before plants (innoculation). Seed innoculation boosts the positive effects of nitrogen fixation Once planting seeds are innoculated with Biofix, the action of nitrogen-fixing bacteria on in the soil is greatly enhanced increasing the crops nitrogen intake to levels higher than those experienced with mineral fertilizers. The result is faster growth and a bountiful harvest for all your leguminous crops, such as beans, peas, cowpeas, soybeans and the like. HOW TO USE BIOFIX: 1. Preparation Add 30g Gum Arabic (or 2 tablespoons of sugar) to 300ml clean water in a soda bottle and shake well to dissolve. Fill a debe can/tin (or any other container) with 15kg of large sized legume seeds. Transfer the 10kg legume seeds from the debe into a clean basin. 2. Innoculation Pour Gum Arabic/Sugar solution onto the legume seeds in the basin. Using both hands, mix the legume seeds with the Gum Arabic/ sugar solution until all the seeds are wet. Using the right type of BIOFIX for the legume seeds, add the innoculant onto the wet seeds. 3. Planting Mix the legume seeds and the innoculant thoroughly using both hands until all the seeds are uniformly covered with the inoculant. Cover the basin with paper, cloth or gunny bag and keep under shade. Plant the inoculated seeds as soon as possible in well prepared moist bed BENEFITS OF USING BIOFIX: 1. Better Crops Biofix is effective as a growth agent on legumes and recommended cultivars because it helps accelerate the growth of Nitrogen fixing nodules, leading to faster maturity and higher yields. 2. Higher Profits Biofix is affordable to purchase and is available in various quantities. It does not require additional labour or effort and gives massive savings on money that could be spent on Nitrogenous fertilizer. 3. Versatile & Long-lasting It Is tolerant of stress and stimulates nodulation and Nitrogen fixation over a wide range of soils, and temperatures. Biofix contains bacteria that are persistent in soil in terms of both growth and survival. It is available in 10g, 50g and 100g.
