NPK fertilisers (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium) have long been at the heart of modern agriculture, providing plants with essential nutrients for healthy growth. However, a recent innovation is changing the agricultural landscape: the addition of selected microbial inoculums in fertilisers. This article will explore microorganism-enriched NPK fertilisers in detail, highlighting their advantages and how they are revolutionising the agricultural sector. have long been at the heart of modern agriculture, providing plants with essential nutrients for healthy growth. However, a recent innovation is changing the agricultural landscape: the addition of selected microbial inoculums in fertilisers. This article will explore microorganism-enriched NPK fertilisers in detail, highlighting their advantages and how they are revolutionising the agricultural sector.
Leaving aside for the moment the function performed by the nutritional component of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, we will analyse what advantages such microbial inocula bring when added to fertilisers.
Beneficial microorganisms in fertilisers: all the advantages
Enriching nutrient formulations with selected microbial inoculums, such as bacteria and fungi, is a significant step towards more sustainable management of agricultural resources. These microorganisms perform several crucial functions,including nutrient solubilisation, atmospheric nitrogen fixation and promotion of disease resistance..
- Nutrient solubilisation:
One of the main advantages of microorganisms in fertilisers is their ability to solubilise nutrients in the soil.Micro-organisms, through metabolic processes, transform nutrients into forms that are more easily assimilated by plants. This improves the efficiency of nutrient uptake while reducing loss through leaching.
Free-living nitrogen-fixing bacteria are able to take up atmospheric nitrogen and transform it into a readily assimilable nitrogen component for plants. This not only provides plants with a more sustainable source of nitrogen, but also reduces dependence on synthetic nitrogen fertilisers.
Beneficial microorganisms are also able to stimulate the immune system of plants, increasing their resistance to disease. This is particularly relevant in a sustainable agricultural context, where reducing pesticide use is a priority. The incorporation of microorganisms into NPK fertilisers has significant implications for environmental sustainability.By reducing the need for synthetic fertilisers and improving nutrient uptake efficiency, the negative environmental impact associated with conventional agriculture can be limited.
Farmers are increasingly adopting NPK fertilisers enriched with microorganisms in various crops. Field trials show promising results, with formulations being adapted to the specific needs of different crops.
NPK fertilisers enriched with micro-organisms represent a true green revolution in agriculture. As the adoption of this innovation grows, it is crucial to join efforts between scientists, farmers and the industry to maximise the benefits and ensure a sustainable future for food production. Synergistic collaboration will be the key to shaping an agriculture that nourishes crops, respects the environment and sustains future generations.
MICRO ACTIVE COMPLEX TECHNOLOGY
We at Ms Biotech have developed a technology based on the combined use of several microbial strains called 'MICRO ACTIVE COMPLEX'.
We specialise in the production of fertilisers enriched with microorganisms and based on NPK formulations.Our company aims to promote sustainable agricultural practices and soil health, and we are committed to offering innovative solutions to improve crop productivity in an environmentally friendly manner.
We are guided by the belief that plant health starts with the soil.Therefore, we are dedicated to developing fertilisers that not only provide essential nutrients, but also incorporate beneficial microorganisms to optimise soil health and promote robust plant growth. Among our flagship products are advanced NPK fertilisers, enriched with a selection of highly beneficial microorganisms. We offer customised formulas to suit specific crop needs, ensuring a targeted and sustainable approach to plant nutrition.
OUR NPK FERTILISERS
For example, we can find organic fertilisers such as DUALTECH NPK 4-8-10 with high humic and fulvic carbon content, designed for use on tree and horticultural crops in organic farming, or the mineral organ DUALTECH NPK 18-7-9 both developed with the unique 'MICRO ACTIVE COMPLEX' formulation.

The presence of a selected microflora linked to the organic matrix makes it possible to make the most of residual soil fertility and at the same time protect crops from biotic and abiotic stresses.
