Microbial Insights has extensive expertise in environmental microbiology and providing remediation strategies for the agriculture industry. We offer highly accurate, cost-effective, and customizable molecular biological tools (MBTs) to provide the comprehensive data needed to help agri-businesses, consultants, and government agencies make informed and effective agricultural management, environmental assessment, and remediation decisions.
ISSUE: Production-Plant-Microbe interactions significantly influence plant health and productivity whether through nutrient availability, phytohormones, disease, or disease suppression. Environmental Remediation-Bioremediation can be a cost effective solution for soil and groundwater impacted by pesticides.
IMPACT: Crop yields + Disease in plants + Soil and Water Quality
THREATS: Agricultural Output + Environmental Consequences.
PATH TO RESOLUTION: Our superior molecular biological tools and data interpretation provide you with the detailed insight you need to make informed decisions that impact agricultural management and environmental remediation. Genomics and other DNA based methods can cost-effectively answer microbiological questions that are simply not possible with other methods. Our analysis is 100% unbiased. Microbial Insights does not sell biologicals or remediation products. We provide the MBTs and reporting that help you make the most informed decisions, based on the best possible data and analysis.
- Quantify microorganisms responsible for processes in the nitrogen cycle including Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria (NIF), Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria (AMO), and Denitrifying Bacteria (DNF).
- Generate an overall profile of the rhizosphere microbial community and determine if potential nitrogen fixing, phosphate solubilizing, siderophore producing, or other plant growth promoting bacteria are present.
- Examine the microbial community for bacteria associated with degradation of common pesticides.
