Profert® is a liquid fertiliser produced by a unique process involving the breakdown of selected marine by-products into a form that plants can readily absorb the available nutrients.
One of the key ingredients in Profert is the addition of mycorrhizal fungi (AM) spores.
Mycorrhizal fungi are part of the beneficial microbes that live in the plant rhizosphere. They form symbiotic structures with plant roots and provide nutrients to the plant that otherwise would not be accessible. In return, the plant feeds his fungal partner with sugars produced during photosynthesis.
The combination of an amino acid nutrition and the mycorrhizal fungi results in improved plant growth and general health in a noticeably shorter time frame than conventional chemical fertilisers.
Why Profert works so well
The unique ambient (room) temperature process used in developing Profert means that the beneficial microbes which breakdown marine protein are unharmed throughout the process and continue to increase in numbers over time, improving soil biology and plant nutrition.
This process creates nutrients in the form of absorbable amino acids that are immediately available to the crop.
Mycorrhizal fungi will remain as a spore form until they find a proper root to colonise. These fungi will supply the plant with many different soil nutrients. But they are specialised in phosphorous relocation. This eventually means that the plant will have a much better nutrition in general and in phosphorous in particular.
The Mycorrhizal fungi spores added into our Profert belong to the endomycorrhizal group.
This type of fungi will form symbiotic structures with more than 85% of the plant botanical species, including most agriculture crops, ornamentals and fruit trees.
The species in our product include:
- The correct balance of macro and micro nutrients will enhance plant growth
- Microbes help supply organic nitrogen to the plant and soil
- Profert can enhance the uptake and assimilation of trace minerals to rapidly correct minor micronutrient deficiencies
- Improving soil microbial activity can aid the reduction of bulk fertilisers use and assist with unlocking built up nutrients
- Profert has a nil withholding period.
Shelf Life and Storage
Shelf Life up to 12 months from manufacture
Profert® should be stored at ambient temperature conditions. It is recommended to be stored out of direct sunlight, but within a well lit area so that the microbial digestion process within the product continues.
Compatibility & Use
Profert can be mixed and applied with most commonly used pesticides, however, Profert should not be used with selected herbicides (mainly of the metsulfuron family).
We strongly recommend checking labels for compatibility as well as testing in a small area prior to widespread application.
