Bionema Group Ltd is launching four biofertilizers comprising living microbes that enhance plant nutrition by mobilizing or increasing nutrient availability in soils and substrates. The BioNFix™ range and Rhizosafe™ include Paenibacillus azotofixans BNL1913, Azospirillum lipoferum BNL714, Bradyrhizobium japonicum BNL1061, and Rhizophagus irregularis BNL2414 encapsulated in a novel Incapsulex™ technology platform.
These biofertilizers restore the soil's natural nutrient cycle and build soil organic matter, enhancing plant growth while avoiding synthetic fertilizers that can pollute the world's waters and atmosphere.
Field trials conducted by Bionema in different parts of the world demonstrated significantly enhanced growth in agricultural crops grown with biofertilizers and positive changes in soil organic matter
content and pH, soil type, and agroecological condition. These effects resulted in yield improvements as well as a 40–50% reduction in synthetic fertilizer use.
As the benefits of these products have become more recognized and consumer preference for organic foods has intensified, there has been growing interest in biofertilizers. The biofertilizer market was valued at $2.6 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $4.5 billion by 2026 at 11.9% CGAR (Markets and Markets, 2022). In particular, the mycorrhizae-based biofertilizers market is projected to reach $1.087 billion by 2027. The use of mycorrhizal biofertilizers (especially arbuscular mycorrhizae species for agriculture crops) is expanding thanks to their numerous benefits: (i) increased nutrient intake and water; (ii) reduced soil erosion; (iii) reduced need for phosphorus application; (iv) better tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses.
Speaking on the launch, Dr. Minshad Ansari, Founder and CEO of Bionema Group Ltd, said, "Bionema's collection of exclusive microorganisms and its novel delivery system provides a unique solution to soil fertility and crop health improvement. With a wide range of microbes that support Nitrogen fixation, Phosphorus solubilization, Potassium mobilization, and more, these biofertilizers are the ideal choice for anyone seeking to boost their soil's health and vitality."
Dr. Sarah Harding, Global Head of Innovation at Bionema, said, "These new products are the results of many years of research, not just into the microbes used for promoting and protecting plant growth, but also into the technology used for formulating these products in a way that ensures their survival and efficacy in the field."
Mrs. Meraj Syeda, Operations Director & Co-founder of Bionema Group Ltd, said, "We believe in strict loyalty to 'Innovation' and in building value by supplying products and services that conform to global standards, ensuring consistent availability of world-class products."
The Bionema team would be delighted to explain the best application processes for each product to potential customers to ensure optimal results are achieved with these biofertilizers, all of which use advanced micronutrient technology to promote healthy plant growth. Bionema is focused on achieving customer success with biofertilizers and will be employing a variety of newly created technical training programs for customers in the UK market.
