TNC BactorrS13 is a 100% natural product containing friendly bacteria which are known to be beneficial to plants, helping to create a healthy and highly nutritional environment for plant roots. TNC BactorrS13 contains nitrogen fixing bacteria (eg. B. polymyxa) that can take atmospheric nitrogen and convert it to ammonia which is then plant available. It also contains phosphorous solubilising bacteria – important if using Rock Phosphate or Bone meal which are not soluble in water. In a hydroponic system, if Calcium nutrients happen to combine with Phosphates and form insoluble Calcium Phosphate, these bacteria are also able to unlock the nutrients.
Each gram of TNC BactorrS13 contains 1.6 billion beneficial bacteria working to help improve your crop.
Other bacteria will break down and degrade waste organic materials that accumulate over a growing season. This not only releases valuable nutrients back in to the food web but means these potential sources of food don’t get taken advantage of by undesirables within the substrate. TNC BactorrS13 is also packed with other natural substances to help promote strong and healthy growth – Humate (Humic acid), as well as cytokins, auxins and giberelins along with amino acids and trace elements all derived from a natural marine algae (Ascophylum nodosum).
Can help to prevent ‘nutrient lockout’ by breaking down insoluble Calcium Phosphate compounds
