The term “synthesis” as used here refers to the biosynthetic capacity of certain microorganisms to derive metabolic energy by “fixing” atmospheric nitrogen and/or carbon dioxide. In this context we refer to these as “synthetic” microorganisms , and if they should become a pre dominant part of the soil microflora, then the soil would be termed a “synthetic” soil.
Nitrogen-fixing microorganisms are highly diverse, ranging from “free living”, autotrophic bacteria of the genus Azotobacter to symbiotic, heterotrophic bacteria of the genus Rhizobium, and blue-green algae (now mainly classified as blue-green bacteria), all of which function aerobically. Photosynthetic microorganisms fix atmospheric carbon dioxide in a manner similar to that of green plants. They are also highly diverse, ranging from blue-green algae and green algae that perform complete photosynthesis aerobically to photosynthetic bacteria which perform incomplete photosynthesis anaerobically.
Pro-Soil Ag Solutions, Inc., manufacturer and distributor of natural soil nutrition and liquid plant food products that enhance the effects of fertilizer and stimulate plant growth, is driven by our mission to help farmers improve the health of their soils and the quality of the crops they raise.
Our products improve soil health by stimulating and feeding native microbial life in the soil which creates a higher yielding crop. To learn more about how you can increase photosynthetic efficiency, contact us today!
