Cilus® Plus is a microbial preparation containing a very high concentration of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain IT45 isolated through Lallemand Research.
The bacteria Bacillus IT45 contained in Cilus® Plus will rapidly populate the rhizosphere (root zone) by feeding on the root exudates produced by the crop.
In return, this microbial population will provide several beneficial outcomes to the plants:
- Solubilise Phosphorus: secretion of phytases and organic acids that will turn phosphorus and trace elements in the rhizosphere into available forms for uptake by plants.
- Stimulate growth of efficient roots and root hairs: production of phytohormones that will help to produce roots and root hairs improving soil exploration and better uptake of nutrients and water.
- Probiotic effect: occupation of the rhizosphere with beneficial microflora.
