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

Nitrosomonas europaea
Converts ammonia to nitrate & solubilizes phosphates


Solubilizes phosphates & siderophore production

Rhodopseudomonas palustris
Enhances soil bio activity & nitrogen fixation


Enhances soil bioactivity & provides plant growth hormones

Nitrobacter winogradskyi
Converts nitrite to nitrate & solubilizes phosphates

Large-Scale Treatment

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.

Small-Scale Treatment

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.
