Nov. 13, 2013 — Ball DPF is adding Nature’s Source Plant Probiotic to its line of plant nutrition products.

Nature’s Source Plant Probiotic is a unique complex of beneficial microorganisms intended to promote the establishment and enhance the growth of greenhouse and nursery crops, landscape plants, and agricultural crops in all types of soils and growing media.

“Healthy soils produce healthy plants,” says Chance Finch, general manager of Ball DPF. “Nature’s Source Plant Probiotic is formulated to establish beneficial microbial populations that provide the soil with the necessary components to promote healthy plant growth and reduce plant stress.”

The probiotic contains beneficial Bacillus (bacteria), Trichoderma (fungi), and Streptomyces (actinomycetes) on a 100 per cent soluble powder that can be sprayed on plants and foliage or injected through an irrigation system. These soil microbes help decompose organic matter and improve soil structure. They also form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots, helping plants absorb more nutrients, resist stress and grow healthier.

Nature’s Source Plant Food and Nature’s Source Plant Probiotic are complementary products; the plant foods contain organic elements that both nourish plants and serve as a food source for beneficial microorganisms.

Nature’s Source Plant Probiotic is available in five pound (2.27 kg) and 25 lb. (11.34 kg) containers.
