Brandt Noculate

Each of the Noculate granular products contains high quality
nutrition along with humic acid, kelp, soil wetting agent and
24 strains of beneficial microbes.

The Noculate Range of fertilisers are manufactured using
a unique, technology driven production process. Each
individual formulation benefits from the addition of a select
group of highly beneficial soil microorganisms. These
microscopic elements have the ability to fix atmospheric
nitrogen and solubilise minerals in the soil profile enhancing
plant nutrition.

Soils contain many naturally occurring inorganic substrates
such as calcium phosphate, which are not plant available.
Many of the microbial species in Noculate fertilisers have the
capacity to produce organic acids which solubilise a portion
of the calcium phosphate. The end result is more calcium and
phosphorus is made available to the plant essentially tapping
a nutrient reserve not available under normal circumstances.
Noculate fertilisers also incorporate nitrogen-fixing bacteria
into their fertiliser blends, which serves to help satisfy the
nitrogen requirements of plants. Free-living, nitrogen-fixing
bacteria have the capacity to convert di-nitrogen (N2) from
the atmosphere into a plant available form of nitrogen (NH3).
Roughly 2/3 of the global input of fixed nitrogen arises from
biological processes.

Independent studies have shown that soils rich in nitrogen
fixing bacteria can sequester upwards of 100 Kg of N per
hectare per year thus supporting the importance and benefit
of incorporating nitrogen fixing bacteria into fertiliser blends.
The addition of microorganisms also enhances a plants
ability to absorb nutrients. A complex series of biochemical
reactions increases the permeability of the plants cellular
membrane, which in turn facilitates nutrient uptake. Tissue
analysis trials at Auburn University in USA have consistently
shown that plants fed biologically enhanced fertilizers contain
more nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium than plants fed
non-biologically enhanced fertilisers with the same N, P, K

The addition of microorganisms, also serves to prolong the
fertilisers ability to stimulate growth by reducing the incidence
of nutrient leaching. Soil bacteria incorporate free nitrogen
into their metabolic functions. Much of this nitrogen would
have been lost to the plant through the leaching process
had the bacteria not incorporated it into their cell mass and
temporarily stored it. This storehouse of nitrogen is then
returned to the plant through a complex process known as
nutrient mineralisation. In short, the addition of beneficial
soil microorganisms to Noculate fertiliser blends serves to
satisfy the short term and long term nutritional requirements
of the plant. These microorganisms have the capacity to
expedite nutrient availability, facilitate nutrient absorption
and to continue providing these nutrients fungi). Many soil
bacteria have the capacity to produce a glue-like substance
(polysaccharides), which serve to create micro-aggregates
in the soil profile. These micro-aggregates are then bound
together by fungal hyphae to create macroaggregates. This
biologically induced process improves soil structure over time
enhancing percolation as well as the oxygen holding capacity
of the soil matrix.
