To be global leaders in the BioAgro sector through innovative solutions to meet the farmers’ needs
INTEGRAL MICROBIAL MODEL IMMSymborg’s Integral Microbial Model is based on the management of very specific and exclusive species of different types of microorganisms, selected for their high efficiency so that they work in synergy with the objective of balancing agricultural soils and providing the different functions required for the optimal development of plants.
“After many years of research, and thanks to advanced technological development, researchers can better understand the precise genes of the microorganisms that define the life in the soil, their needs, their behaviours, etc. As a result of such understanding, we can act on microbial relationships to make for a plant’s improved physiological state, increased production and better defense against pathogens.”
Based on this knowledge and on farmers’ needs, Symborg has developed the Integral Microbial Model (IMM), based on the management of very specific and exclusive species of different types of microorganisms that we have selected due to their bio-pesticide, bio-fertilizer and bio-stimulant properties and their great efficiency in agricultural systems. The different strains of microorganisms selected by the company work in synergy with the objective of balancing agricultural soils and providing the different functions necessary for optimal plant development.
“Thanks to this model, we can achieve more profitable and sustainable crops, which has been one of Symborg’s main objectives since its creation.”
One of Symborg’s exclusive microorganisms is the mycorrhizal fungus Glomus iranicum var. tenuihypharum. This fungus associates with plant roots, generating a symbiosis that is beneficial to both: it provides the plant with water and nutrients from the soil, and in return, it obtains the sugars that are essential for its development. It improves the plants’ physiological state and their productive yields in all types of crops and conditions: hydroponic cultivation, greenhouse, outdoors, etc.
After selecting these strains, Symborg evaluated how they behaved together to achieve microbiome complexes, which increase the soil’s fertility and biological activity.
SUCCESS STORIES:With the management of the Integral Microbial Model (IMM), Symborg has achieved increases in crop yields ranging from 8% to 45% in crops as varied as leafy vegetables, berries, fruits, olives, grapes, greenhouse crops, and grains.
This was illustrated, for example, in the test carried out in Murcia on the Ramyle tomato variety, which showed a productive increase of up to one kilogram per square meter cultivated. Also in the case of fruit crops, such as melon and table grapes, Symborg’s Integral Microbial Model achieves very significant increases. In Almería, a watermelon plantation of Fashion and Premium variety recorded production increases of up to 40% per square meter. Other examples presented were cucumber and table grapes, each with improvements of 1.4% per square meter and 4.9% per hectare, respectively.
