When it comes to drought prevention, everyone thinks that they may need more watering. Now, there is a better way that we can use microbiological fertilizers like Bacillus mucilaginosus to prevent drought. The reason is that: Bacillus mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacteria. It has a strong potassium-dissolving ability, which is selected from the roots of crops and produced by industrial fermentation with a specific medium. Through its life activities in the soil, it increases the supply of plant nutrient elements, stimulates crop growth, inhibits harmful microbial activity, and has a strong effect of increasing production. It is currently the most significant and widely recognized microbial agent.
1.Bacillus mucilaginosus can secrete plant growth regulators such as auxin and gibberellin, increase roots and make seedlings healthy, and directly enhance drought resistance of plants.
There are auxin substances and gibberellin substances in the bacteria and fermentation broth of Bacillus mucilaginosus. The bacteria has a cytokinin 36 mg/L in the fermentation broth, gibberellin 348 mg/L, and IAA was 38 μg/ml. They work together and will have a stimulatory effect on crops, increases roots and seedlings, promotes crop growth, and enhances plant resistance.
2. Bacillus mucilaginosus can decompose silicon in the soil for the use of plants, making the waxy layer of plants thicker and improving the water holding capacity of plants.
Bacillus mucilaginosus grows and thrives around the seed or crop roots, producing a large number of organic acids and enzymes during its metabolism, and decomposing insoluble minerals such as aluminosilicates in the soil. K, P, Si, Mg, Zn, etc. are released in the form of ions for absorption and utilization by plant roots. Silicate bacteria grow and reproduce in the soil and decompose insoluble minerals such as metasilicates in the soil, allowing plants to take in large amounts of silicon from the soil, thereby making the wax layer of plants thicker and improving the plant’s non-specific immunity ability and water retention.
3.Bacillus mucilaginosus can promote the formation of soil aggregate structure, prevent soil compaction, damage the soil capillary phenomenon, and prevent evaporation of soil moisture.
