Why Annuals and Perennials require specific recipes – Managing the Fungi to Bacteria (F:B) Ratio
All plant species prefer a specific ratio of fungi to bacteria depending on where they fall on the successional gradient. When cultivating any specific plant, the goal is to match the soil microbial environment to the needs of the plant. The chart below divides plants into four successional groups: early, mid, late, and old growth. BioLogic Systems compost extract recipes are formulated to produce crop-specific microbial inoculants based on the understanding of succession and fungi to bacteria (F:B) ratios.
