Microlife

IDEAL APPLICATION FOR PASTURE CROPS AND SOIL
Develops high yielding, healthier, more profitable soil
Supports disease suppression in plants and soil
Improves soil structure, temperature, and depth
Creates better organic matter decomposition and nutrient recycling
Optimises soil biological activity and balance
A living soil inoculant taking soil and crop potential to new heights

Highly effective
Microlife is a highly concentrated “blend” of living soil organisms selected for their beneficial effect on plant and animal production systems. By incorporating co-prosperity technology, multiple effects and compounding benefits are possible. Microlife’s focus is on soil improvement and disease suppression followed by yield enhancement. Microlife helps create, high yielding disease suppressive soils supportive of plant root development and natural nitrogen fixation. It reverses the damage caused by the overuse of agrichemicals. Microlife is also the best way to get better use of the nutrients in soil reserves.

Performs beyond expectations
Microlife produces world leading performance.
Yields in crops. Ag Research trials have proven the effectiveness of co-prosperity technology offered by Biohelp(NZ) Ltd in Onions, Peas, and Maize. Microorganisms technology was superior to both fertiliser and liquid fertilisers. Many clients comment on the improved quality of crops. Soil development. Clients have noticed soil improvements in just a few months, but changes are possible for years. Typically, clients comment on the ease of tillage after using microlife. Disease suppression. Microlifes is highly effective in reducing problematic diseases in soil. Very significant crop losses (over 20%) from Fusarium root rot in Yams, Scab in potatoes, and Sclerotinia in sunflowers, have been reduced to less than 1% using Microlife. Multiple and compounding benefits. Improving the soil health and depth helps both the initial crop and subsequent crops. The effects begin to compound. Soils get deeper and softer and crops get better and better. Water is utilised more efficiently as well.

Simple and Easy to Use
Application is easy and saves you time and money. Apply direct through a conventional spray boom, direct injection into an irrigator, or mix with liquid fertilisers. Microlife has been prefiltered to ensure no particles will block spray boom or irrigation nozzles. Application rates are around 1L/Ha. Microlife has no withholding period for stock and can be applied any time of year. Clear instructions are on the label and we have support systems in place to answer any further questions. Guideline programs are available for individual crops with clear instructions on when to apply.

Biohelp Research Trials
Research Trial Results for MICROLIFE


SALT AFFECTED SOIL TRANSFORMED
Results: High salt soils were bought back into near full production after 2 seasons.

Key Observations: Getting even weeds to establish in these salt affected soils had been near impossible prior to treatment. In the first season after treatment we got a great paddock of fathen which was grazed by the ewes. Along with additional treatment, this facilitated further soil improvement and in the following season barley was successfully grown to near full production.

Treatment: Microlife + gypsum

Trial details: Visual examination of the soil and crops.




USEABLE SOIL DEPTH INCREASES 100% IN 2 YEARS DESPITE HEAVY CULTIVATION Jan 2005
Results: 4 inch (10cm) usable soil profile increased to 8 inches in 2 years on heavily cropped soil inspite of 3 cultivations. 

Soil changes: Worm became evident and soil structure improved drastically. Easy to till.

Key Observations: A 4 inch increase in depth made a huge change to plant root depths and there subsequent ability to utilize water, and applied fertilizer. We had previously observed that a 2 inch increase in soil depth changed onion yields by 300%.

Treatment: Crop Zest and Microlife.

Trial details: Visual examination of the soil pre and post treatment. Paddock had a history of heavy cropping on good soil.




USEABLE SOIL DEPTH INCREASES 400% IN 6 MTHS June 2004
Results: 2 inch (10cm) usable soil profile increased to 8 inches in 6 months. 

Soil changes: Worm numbers and soil structure have increased drastically.

Key Observations: Plant roots were stronger and deeper. Iron crustaceans characteristic of a lack of aeration in the soil went from a 2inch depth to 8 inch depth ie the soil became more aerated. The paddock went from being the undisputed worst performer to nearly equaling the best paddocks on the farm. Considerable improvement is still possible.

Treatment: Pasture Grow and Microlife were recommended along with suspension fertilizer. i.e we made fertilizer recommendations as well.

Trial details: Visual examination of the soil pre and post treatment. Paddock had a history of heavy cropping on good soil. Was in pasture when we started.




INCREASED TEMP, WORMS, AND DEPTH IN 10WKS AT 2100FT Nov 2004
Results: 10 Weeks after treatment 4 inch (10cm)
Soil temperature increased 2.2°C or 11%.
30 worms were counted in a trench spade full and 4 in untreated areas
Useable soil depth had increased 5cm or 30%
Key Observations: Thatching had decreased. Treated areas contained significantly more moisture. Grass growth was increased drastically. Grass palatability increased and stock wouldn’t eat untreated areas. Plant roots were stronger and deeper and forcing there way into the clay pan. Considerable improvement is still possible. At 6months beneficial fungi was visually evident representing terrific improvement in soil activity.

Treatment: Pasture Grow and Microlife

Trial details: Measurements taken from control and treated. A cover was used to create a control area.




SOIL TEMPS INCREASE 25% Sep 2004
Results: Increases of 2.5°C or 25% at 2 inches in early spring

Soil changes: Worm numbers and soil structure have increased drastically.

Key Observations: Plant roots are stronger and deeper. Grass growth was outstanding. Considerable improvement is still possible. Farmer commented how much the grass had grown through winter – most unexpected.

Treatment: Pasture Grow and Microlife

Trial details: A 60Ha pivot was used to apply 4 applications of Biohelp products as part of a on farm trial for replacement of Urea on a dairy farm. Competitive products were used in other areas. We took measurements comparing the Biohelp block with the untreated paddock (with the same soil) next door.




SOIL TEMPS INCREASE 30% IN 12 MONTHS Sep 2004
Results: 4 inch (10cm) temperature increases over untreated were
4 treatments - 3.0°C or 30%,
3 treatments – 1.8°C or 18%
2 treatments – 1.5°C or 15%
Soil changes: Worm numbers and soil structure have increased drastically.

Key Observations: Plant roots are stronger and deeper. Considerable improvement is still possible.

Treatment: Pasture Grow and Microlife
