The Product: ACF-SR
AdvancedAG is a Canadian company with over 20 years of leading edge research on culturing specific bacteria species for a range of applications. Their proprietary edge allows them to selectively grow, stabilize and blend individual strains of bacteria into biologically active products.
ACF-SR delivers a diverse spectrum of plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB), that can be cultured days before application for a super concentrated, live dose at an affordable cost.
Most bacterial products focus primarily on basic bacillus and pseudomonas strains, while their blend of bacteria includes 5 of the most effective PGPB, with greater capabilities and benefits.
5 Bacteria and Their Functions
Converts ammonia to nitrate & solubilizes phosphates
Solubilizes phosphates & siderophore production
Enhances soil bio activity & nitrogen fixation
Enhances soil bioactivity & provides plant growth hormones
Converts nitrite to nitrate & solubilizes phosphates
Many bacterial products have a culture count of only 5 million cfu/mL, with a limited variety of bacteria species, making large-scale applications impractical.
AdvancedAg's patented brewing process creates an optimal environment for their 5 bacteria species to reproduce quickly right before applying. Brewing allows them to achieve a culture count of over 10 billion cfu/mL in just 72 hours.
This brewing process is extremely simple and can be done on-site using their Bacteria Culturing Monitors (BCM) or in our brewing facilities. Brewing produces a beneficial blend of bacteria at super high concentrations, lowering input costs, while drastically improving crop and soil health.
AdvancedAg's beneficial microbes have been blended and stabilized in bottle, with a 2-year shelf life for small-scale applications.
Many greenhouse, hydroponic, garden, orchard and turf operations have benefitted from their concentrated, ready-to-use ACF-SR.
The final “brewed” product is in liquid form and is sprayed or applied directly to the soil, at a rate of 2 gallons/acre.
Two concentrated applications are recommended, one as close to seeding as possible, and another 4-6 weeks later.
