Microbes are microorganisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They occur naturally in the environment and are found almost everywhere. Countless microorganisms live in the soil and in close relation to plants, making up the plants’ microbiome. Many of these microbes have distinctive properties that can help control fungi, bacteria, nematodes, insects and weeds. They can also stimulate plant growth and yield by improving access to nutrients.
Ag Biologicals are one of Monsanto’s five research and development platforms that provide farmers with tools to grow their crops in a way that use fewer resources – like land, water and energy.
