Pro Bio Products

There is always constant pressure to reduce the amount of expensive pesticides and fertilisers we use while trying to use more safer and organic methods of pest and disease suppression.

Pro bio products are in simple terms pro-biotics for plants, boosting the "good biology" (bacteria, fungi and protozoa) that should be present both on the plants surfaces (leaves and roots) and in the soil. This then allows all the processes and interactions in the soil food web to function as they should.

Ground Force Leisure are pleased to be supplying and distributing the full range of XL Pro Bio products produced in the UK by LCP Professional Products who have a great deal of expertise and experience in this field. The range includes BioLift, ReviTEAlised Tea Compost, Biostim HFT and Biotop Topdress Treatment.

BioLift is an easy to use liquid bio stimulant extraction derived from totally organic products with no chemical additives. It adds and “Lifts” the bio activity of beneficial fungi - bacteria - mycorhiza and protozoa in your growing medium to compete and feed off the diseases you may already have present. In foliar applications it coats the foliage with such a large amount of naturally occurring beneficial microbial activity that plant damaging diseases can’t attach and attack the foliage.

BioLift is derived from worm casts. The worm casts are a concentration of the micro organisms which were contained in the matter they have consumed. They also contain beneficial yeasts, bacteria and fungi as well as plant hormones and enzymes all of which are beneficial to the plants. XL Pro Bio extract the beneficial biology from the casts and supply it to the customer in a liquid suspension ready to be diluted and used.

ReviTEAlised is an aerobic bio stimulant or compost tea. It is blended from several different sources of carefully composted ingredients including some vermi compost. It is blended to give a more diverse range of bacteria, fungi and protozoa than greenmatter compost only. This helps in the suppression of a wider range of pests and diseases.

ReviTEAlised is supplied in a concentrated form. All you need is a simple brewer to extract and grow the "good biology". Then you just dilute your concentrated tea with water and spray or water it on like a liquid feed or pesticide.

ReviTEAlised can help with all of the following:

  • Suppresses Diseases
  • Unlocks Nutrients and make them available to the plant
  • Reduces nutrient leaching
  • Improves water retention in soil /compost
  • Makes plants healthier and more resistant to attack
  • Extends root network - stimulates root hairs
  • Suppresses some Pests
  • Improves soil structure
  • Improves germination
  • Decomposes toxic compounds
  • Reduces need for conventional pesticides

Biostim HFT - The Humic And Fulvic Acid Booster
Humic substances are major components of natural organic matter. They are found in soil, water and organic geological deposits such as brown coal, shale and peat. They are formed by the composition of dead plant matter. Some organic substances are high in both humic and fulvic acids. They are formed from the decomposition of products such as carbohydrates, amino acids and phenols. They have a very low solubility in natural soils, which is why they are still there, and also why such high amounts of natural humus is needed in good fertile soil. fulvic acid is much more soluble than Humic acid which is why it is usually only present in very low concentrations-compared to humic acid. Due to an advanced manufacturing process Biostim HFT has a 1.1 ration of both humic and fulvic substances.

  • Increases the permeability of cell membranes in the roots which increases nutrient uptake
  • Promotes the development of chlorophyll, sugars and amino acids in the plant leading to better photosynthesis
  • Stimulates plant growth by accelerating cell division and increasing the rate of development in root systems
  • Enhances the cationic exchange capacity in the root zone
  • Reduces leaching of water soluble inorganic fertilizers and retains it in the root zones (esp Nitrates)
  • Acts as a natural chelator and increases nutrient and trace element availability
  • Improves the root zone structure and the water-holding capacity (acids colloids to combine)
  • Improves the germination of seeds and enhances the development of radicles
  • Decreases stress by drought and stress by the application of plant treatments
  • Enhances the plants natural resistance against diseases and pests
  • Decreases high salt contents in root zones and thus the resulting toxicities

BioTop - Top Dressing for all Sports Turf
topdress treatment is the missing link in top dressing-providing excellent plant health - naturally. It is totally organic with no additives, and is an easy to apply bio stimulant. Mixed with your top dressing after coring or slitting it adds the bio activity of beneficial fungi- bacteria mycorrhizae, and protozoa in your rootzone profile, to compete with, and feed off, the diseases you may already have present. It enhances the cationic exchange capacity in the root zone which converts locked up nutrients and makes it available to the plant when the plant requires it. It also stimulates and promotes biological activity in the rootzone and when applied, it has a biological response which will establish new root growth and enhance existing roots, improve leaf condition and strength.

  • Suppresses parasitic nematodes, fusarium, dollar spot, fairy ring and dry patch
  • Enhances germination
  • Promotes quicker root development
  • Releases plant nutrients naturally
  • Aids in active efficient uptake of nutrients
  • Improves stress resistance
  • Assists foliar and root disease suppression
  • Effective for re-generation on oil and other pollution spills
  • Safe with other biological controls
