Quantum Growth MicrobeLife Phtosynthetic Microbes Soil Food WebQuantum Growth and MicrobeLife contain several species of photosynthetic organisms.  Our products are formulated with photosynthetics because they provide energy to plants and turf and the beneficial soil microbes. Quantum Growth and MicrobeLife are the only products in the world that has proven, documented scientific verification, to contain the photosynthetic, nitrogen fixing bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris. Most importantly and of value to growers and turf care professionals, we can guarantee it as stabilized for 3+ years! If you ever see Rhodopseudomonas palustris claimed on the label of any other product, ask them for the same unbiased, third-party University documentation that we can provide you from one of the top microbial geneticists in the world. There are now other products making false and invalidated claims regarding Rhodopseudomonas palustris on their labels due to the success of Quantum Growth and MicrobeLife.

Why Use Photosynthetic Organisms for Plants, Trees & Turf ?

• Most people don't realize how little energy a plant can actually obtain from sunlight.  Only 45% of the sunlight that reaches the ground is in the correct wavelength for photosynthesis (see diagram on the right).  Photosynthesis is, at the very best, 25% efficient, so only 11% of the sunlight is even theoretically available.  Quantum Growth MicrobeLife Phtosynthetic Microbes Soil Food Web Depending on the type of plants or turf, 50-75% of that energy is lost due to factors such as reflection, conversion inefficiencies or other factors.  That leaves only a 3-6% energy conversion efficiency for a plant!  Rhodopseudomonas palustris can use a wider spectrum of the sun's energy for photosynthesis, and therefore are much more efficient than plants at performing photosynthesis. This means more energy for your plants and turf!
• Of that 3-6% of the sunlight that is useable, plants will exude from 20%-40% of their energy into the soil (the rhizosphere) to feed the microbes - demonstrating how important these beneficial organisms are! 
• In the soil environment, or the soil food web, photosynthetic organisms are the primary producers of energy for the system. Without these organisms at the bottom of the food chain, none of the other organisms would survive.  To rebuild and maintain a healthy soil environment for your crops or turf, adding the base organisms that feed the rest of the soil food web makes the most sense.  If you wanted to build a forest, would you add deer before you added any plants for them to feed on?  Of course not.  You would start with the bottom of the forest food chain - the photosynthetic plants that provide energy and food to the deer, which feed the other predators in the forest.  In your garden or on your lawn, adding the photosynthetic organisms in Quantum Growth and MicrobeLife first (see diagram below) is the best way to build healthy soil, plants and turf.

When we designed Quantum Growth and MicrobeLife, we added photosynthetic organisms that provide energy to plants and turf as opposed to taking energy. With all this additional energy, plants are healthier, more able to fight off diseases and pests, and will grow bigger and healthier with more blooms, fruits and flowers. The photosynthetic organisms in Quantum Growth and MicrobeLife provide energy for plants and turf as well as the other beneficial microbes that make up the soil food web.
