URB what is it?
URB’s liquid products (consisting of bacteria and fungi) are eco-friendly, broad spectrum, stimulative, polymicrobial inoculants, with multiple, complementary functions. The product, in layman’s terminology, consists of “Concentrated Mother Nature.” Perhaps, even more importantly, is what the product line is NOT. The products do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMO) nor growth hormones whose long-term effects are unknown. Nor are the products irradiated or contain any chemicals which can be harmful to humans, livestock or the environment. They are not petrochemical based nor are they a “compost tea.”
URB is akin to feeding a human organically grown food and nutritional supplements in a nurturing environment rather than junk food and steroids in a neglectful environment. Conventional farming utilizing petrochemica based fertilizers – Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium (N-P-K) – is the equivalent of using steroids, they will produce gains in the short/medium term while causing environmental degradation in the long term, likewise for pesticides.
Each of our microbial strains are grown separately, given food and vitamins, and grown at a specific temperature, untouched by human hands and with as little exposure to the air as possible. Every batch has a QC check and is the same.
URB and your average fertilizer will outperform a well brewed compost tea. A huge market point for compost tea is soil revitalization
URB also has humates from Humalite not leonardite understanding the difference between humalite and leonardite. Both are referred to as ‘Humate’ products, and both comprised of similar materials. They are great sources of humic and fulvic acid, but per volume Humalite holds more of the active ingredients (Humic and Fulvic Acids), less of the undesirables such as ash and heavy metals, and is more easily extracted.
Leonardite ranges considerably in humic and fulvic acid content. For example, deposits can have as low as 10% humic acid content and as high as 78%. It’s derived from Lignite based coal and was formed in salt water deposits. The other 20-90% of the product that isn’t the active ingredient is made up of ash and heavy metals. The comparison of the two is clearer when you take into consideration the enhanced nutrient quality and properties Humalite has over Leonardite.
Humalite is a name given to the humate material deposited in Alberta, Canada. It is singled out because the material has a different composition and is not derived from Lignite. It is derived from weathered subbituminous coal, and opposite of Leonardite, it was formed in a fresh water environment, not a salt water one.
When humalite is harvested, the resulting final product averages 87% humic acid. Each batch is individually tested to ensure that it maintains the quality and guaranteed 80% humic acid content that it is known for. This means more humic and fulvic acid content, and considerably less of the undesired ash and heavy metals that are found in Leonardite.
The main benefits of Humic Acids are that they stimulate microbiology, enhance the uptake of nutrients, and condition the soils parameters such as Carbon, pH, CEC. All of this works to create a fertile soil environment where the seed can germinate easier and produce a high yielding, nutrient dense crop.
In fact, we frequently describe URB as a product which builds the soil health so that anything with a root responds favorably.
High Ph soil tends to go lower with URB and low pH soil tends to rise.
SO WHATS IN OUR PRODUCT?
Well first is our extremely high quality humic derived from humalite and weighing in at a whopping 12% of our bottle. Triple screened so it won’t clog sprayers or other feeding systems and a high quality fulvic as well for foliar application
We contain 5 Strains of Bacteria and 1 strain of Fungi concentrated at levels higher than anything on the market
-Bacillus subtilis 2×106 CFU/ml -Bacillus lichenformis 1×108 CFU/ml -Bacillus subtilis subsp. spiziizeni 2×108 CFU/ml -Bacillus pumilus 1×107 CFU/ml -Bacillus megaterium 1×106 CFU/ml -Trichoderma harzianum 1×106 CFU/ml
Briefly, the 5 strains of bacillus serve the following benefits to plants…
-Decompose organic matter to create extra nutrition for your plants. -Grow bigger, healthier root system enabling the plant to grow heavier buds with higher levels. -Help produce plant hormones -Restore Biotic Balance -Process nutrients more effectively -Replace beneficial bacteria after each flush
Bacillus subtilis, or B. sub, is a key beneficial plant bacteria. B. subtilis plays a role in replenishing soil nutrients through both the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle. To aid the carbon cycle B. subtilis degrades thatch, pectin, cellulose and other organic materials. B. subtilis forms biofilms which are dense populations of organisms. These biofilms provide the plants with preventive colonization, sometimes called competitive inhibition. While beyond the scope of this post, preventative colonization essentially prohibits other microorganisms from forming colonies around the plant roots.
Another key beneficial plant bacteria, Bacillus megaterium. In addition to some of the benefits conferred by B. subtilis, B. megaterium is known to be a phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB). PSBs have several important benefits: -They make phosphorus more available to the plant -Reduce the need for traditional fertilizer applications -Increases uptake of water. Increases disease and drought resistance. -Reduce Environmental problems downstream -Promote sustainable growing practices.
Bacillus licheniformis is a spore-forming soil organism that contributes to nutrient cycling and has antifungal activity. There is current research on B. licheniformis (strain SB3086) and its effects as a microbial fungicide.
Bacillus subtilis subsp. spiziizeni – prevents and controls root rot
Bacillus pumilus participates in a wide range of symbiotic relationships. B. pumilus can function as a plant growth promoting rhizobacteria within the rhizosphere. Additionally, B. pumilus is thought to function as a plant growth promoting endophyte.
Our single strain of fungi is an interesting one…. I will just copy and paste some information on it….
Trichoderma harzianum, strain T-22 is a hybrid strain developed at Cornell University to enhance certain characteristics of its parent strains. These enhancements in disease resistance, environmental tolerance and crop compatibility made T. harzianum one of the first bio-fungicides. Since its development, T. harzianum has proven to be useful in controlling common soil-borne diseases like Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia on a wide range of crops including corn, soybeans, potatoes, tomatoes and cotton.
WHAT IS IT?
Trichoderma is a soil dwelling genus of fungi prevalent worldwide that are opportunistic plant symbionts, meaning they form beneficial relationships with a variety of plant species. The various species of Trichoderma are important elements of a healthy soil system for this reason. Considered to be fast-growing and adaptable to many different soils due to their global spread, some strains of the Trichoderma genus have been isolated to use the afore mentioned traits to the advantage of gardeners and growers.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
T. harzianum, strain T-22 utilizes several methods to suppress fungal diseases. First, it forms a physical bond with the root system of the plants, establishing itself in the rhizosphere (root zone) and thereby preventing other pathogens from colonizing the soil. This bond and continual growth of the T. harzianum throughout the root system forms a physical barrier to plant pathogens. T-22 also feeds on excess nutrient content left unused by the root system, which would provide a food source for incoming pathogens otherwise. Keeping that in mind, T. harzianum does not interfere with mycorrhizae activity or Rhizobium (a common nitrogen-fixer).
Secondly, T-22 releases chitinases, specific enzymes that denature chitin, to break down the cell wall of fungal pathogens in the soil. The holes in the cell wall created by the enzymes turn the pathogenic fungi into prey for other soil microorganisms. The combination of these methods allows T. harzianum to displace other organisms from the soil and the root system to develop additional biomass useful in increasing plant yields.
Eco-friendly would typically mean not harmful to the environment. URB products go beyond eco-friendly. In addition to NOT using harmful chemicals, URB rehabilitates the soil, making the soil healthier, and are highly compatible with sustainable farming. Our products will enhance the soil’s ability to naturally remediate existing soil contaminants, improve its water retention capacity, improve its chelating abilities to prevent the leeching and runoff of pesticides and other chemical applications, and improve the soil’s organic mass for sustainable production of plant life.
URB products are made from cultivated, not genetically modified strains of microbes. Every product has at least six strains of microbes. The URB formulation is the most complete product on the market, with at least five functions per product. In other words, our product is a multi-vitamin and our competitors’ products are simply Vitamin C. Actually, our product would be more correctly referred to as a perfect food since it contains (or has the ability to produce or mobilize) vitamins, minerals and organic pesticides, and adjusts its own environment by correcting the pH and allowing greater efficiency in water utilization.
URB is a broad-spectrum product, working very well, in a variety of environments, such as high and low pH, wet and dry soil, and in relatively cold, temperate and hot climates. In layman’s terms, our product has the equivalent of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, ready to fight whatever battle in whatever conditions it encounters.
The URB formulation also includes liquid humates and plant micro nutrients. Humates are the backbone of healthy soil. They promote the growth of beneficial microbes and give the soil the proper compaction, cation exchange capacity (CEC), and the ability to retain water and nutrients while making them readily available to plants.
URB is unique in its abilities to offer these benefits. Think of it as a biochemical primer offering benefits from the humate carrier, bacteria and fungi. Soaking seeds in URB make the surface of the seed and the taproot more conducive to attract what it needs to thrive. URB INOCULATES YOUR BEANS PRIOR TO GERMINATION.. Set a timer for 30 min or less and drop the beans in some undiluted URB. Pull them out and proceed with normal germination procedures. You can also dilute around 1-2 ml in a cup of water and soak. Do a Google search on “Trichoderma harzianum seed treatment” to find out that “Seed treatment with Trichoderma Harzianum alleviates biotic, abiotic, and physiological stresses in germinating seeds and seedlings. Trichoderma are endophytic plant symbionts that are widely used as seed treatments to control diseases and to enhance plant growth and yield.” concentrated at 12% do for seed treatments. “Humic acid causes an activation -at an embryonic level – of the metabolic and enzymatic processes that assure a better and more immediate development of the embryo-plant.” Remember that a small change like this can kickstart a crop so efficiently, that only serious mismanagement later in life could prevent yield increases. If you want enhanced nutrition uptake, faster germination, higher germ rates, quicker establishment, earlier root development, and a solid reduction in the susceptibility to disease…
