BCB technology (biological crop booster)
The continued use of fertilizers of chemical origin has caused a significant deterioration of soils, disrupting their microbial balance, and causing a loss of competitiveness for the farmer.
The Biological Crop Booster (BCB) technology developed by Ficosterra allows the soil to return to the natural state of microbial life to improve the soil-plant relationship. To do this, it combines microbial complexes with algae extracts to achieve very high densities of soil regenerating microorganisms.
Through a relationship of coexistence, microorganisms conclude the cycle of organic matter, digesting it, and releasing the necessary nutrients for the recovery of soil fertility. These metabolic processes improve crop health, leading to healthier and more abundant crops.
Cystium Technology (Macrocystis pyrifera)
The Macrocystis pyrifera seaweed lives along the coasts of the American Pacific, forming dense forests up to 60 m high. It is considered the largest seweed in the world, reaching average heights of 40 to 50 meters in length and with a maximum daily growth rate of 60 cm/day.
The habitat in which it develops is characterized by being one of the richest: it houses a multitude of both animal and plant species, which causes the waters in which this seaweed grows and develops to have a very high concentration of nutrients, as well as a multitude of active principles that allow it to face any type of stress.
This richness and abundance of the environment are transferred to the interior of the seaweed and endow it with numerous active principles that make it a rich and useful seaweed for agriculture and the food and pharmacological industry.
Ficosterra uses a pioneering technology to extract its nutritional properties and active principles and transfers them to its plant biostimulant cystium-k® , a pure seaweed extract , certified by SHC and by Demeter whose application as a crop stress treatment is really effective and immediately visible .
The Mare line is the culmination of our two technologies (microorganisms and algae) obtaining products of superior technological value, since they combine BCB technology and CYSTIUM technology. enhancing the existing synergies between the two. The objective of the Mare line is to provide a technological solution that provides farmers with finished products that combine the action of prebiotics and probiotics. Two elements that fill soils exhausted by intensive agriculture with life and that allow agronomic practices to be modified, optimizing fertilization and eliminating over-fertilization, reducing costs in fertilizing crops.
Why use our bioestimulants,
biofertilizers, nutrient fixators
and/or soil activators?
- Because they increase the efficiency of agronutrients.
- Because they help to reduce the use of fertilizers increasing crop productivity at the same time.
- Because they help to regenerate the soil and provide more vigour and health to the plant.
- And, last but not least, because they are 100% BIO products, you avoid polluting the environment.
