One way to apply microbial stimulants is by precision application using natural, fully water soluble capsules. The capsules are positioned near the roots of each plant. This way of application has several advantages:
- the microbes are not diluted throughout the soil and therefore have a far larger chance to survive in an otherwise hostile soil environment.
- the capsule permits humidity to enter but keeps the microbes in place. This means that the microbes are temporarily protected from the hostile soil environment. By the time the capsule disintegrates the microbes are fully active and at maximum strength to support the young plants and to compete with other soil microbes.
- the capsule can be filled with custom-made combinations of nutrients, stimulants and energy containing elements which helps to maximise the positive effects.
