Squadron – improved resilience

Protect your plants’ roots and improve nutrient uptake:

  • Promote healthy and strong plant growth
  • An ideal companion integrated disease management
  • Provides competitive exclusion of the root zone or leaves to support more resilient plants

Squadron contains the live organisms and spores of the beneficial bacteria Pseudomonas fluorescens. This bacteria pre-emptively colonises the leaf surface and root zone and produces natural metabolites that protects that plant against frost stresses and better influences the ratio of beneficial to non-beneficial organisms.

Pseudomonas fluorescens is non-ice nucleating and when applied as a foliar spray, colonises the plants surfaces and out-competes these ice-nucelating bacteria, inferring frost resistance.

Compatible with all Biofilm Biological Crop Solutions products.

Available as a stabilised post-fermentation blend in BioBoost NPK along with AspeN and RhizoPhos to provide a powerful combination of nitrogen fixation, phosphorus solubilisation, soil-borne disease defence and overall plant-growth promotion.

Squadron contains:

  • Pseudomonas fluorescens

Increased resilience

Pseudomonos flourescens aggressively colonises both the roots (when applied to the soil) and leaf areas (when applied as a foliar spray) and triggers induced systemic resistance in plants, making them more resilient to soil-borne and foliar diseases.

Ideal companion for Integrated Disease Management programs.

Frost resilience

A large portion of damage noted to be caused by frost, is actually not icing or the cold temperatures itself causing the damage but bacteria living on the plants surface. These ice-nucleating bacteria release a protein and it is this protein that is causing the damage to the plant during periods where the temperature drops drastically. Pseudomonas fluorescens is non-ice nucleating and when applied as a foliar spray can pre-emptively colonise the plants surfaces and out-compete these ice-nucleating bacteria, improving resilience to frost.

Plant growth promoting

Pseudomonos flourescens is a plant growth promoting rhizobacteria which contributes to faster, stronger and healthier plant growth.
