Ionfx is a mix of genetically identified and patented bacteria, along with archaea and fungi. While many microbes live naturally in a plant, this mix of microorganisms has been selected to support, enhance, or supplement plant functions. Ionfx unlocks a plants ability to produce growth regulators and metabolites.

Key Benefits

  • Improved Emergence
  • Improved Early Vigor
  • Enhanced Root Development
  • Improved Heat Tolerance

Improved Emergence

  • Phosphate solubilization through microbial activity helps support enhanced seed germination.
  • Cold and wet soils release phosphorus very slowly which can delay plant growth.

Improved Early Vigor

  • Slow acting, continuous action microbes facilitate micronutrient availability within the plant.
  • Increased Phosphorus uptake.
  • Enhanced root system allowing for more efficient nutrient & water uptake.

Enhanced Root Development

  • Slow acting, continuous action microbes facilitate micronutrient availability within the plant.
  • Release of hormones such as IAA help promote increased root development.
