3Bar Biologics’ Bio-YIELD uses naturally occurring microbes that are precisely matched to specific crops and soil environments. These microbes were discovered and isolated during a 15-year extensive research process by scientists at The Ohio State University. The Bio-YIELD inoculant system makes it easy for farmers to activate the microbes at planting time. Activating the bacteria at the point of use creates a liquid with the freshest, most viable population of Pseudomonas fluorescens and other beneficial species (millions per drop). This inoculant system produces a “higher percentage of living organisms than any other method available including liquids, powders, and seed coatings,” the company reports.
CEO Bruce Caldwell gave this illuminating overview of the company’s promise and progress at ABLC Global 2018 in San Francisco.
