Biotamax in the Garden

Today I sprayed the entire pumpkin patch, garden and lawn with Biotamax.  Biotamax contains trichoderma harzianum, trichoderma viride, trichoderma koningii, trichoderma polysporum, bacillus subtilis, bacillus laterosporus, bacillus licheniformus, bacillus megaterium, bacillus pumilus and paenibacillus polymyxa.  These soil probiotics can help eat bad fungi in the soil, produce plant hormones and help feed the plant.  I'm not sure that the effervescent tables will actually allow some of the benefical bacterial and fungi to survive, but I believe a good portion of them could live and the cost of a tablet is cheap (around $6) being able to treat an entire acre so I like to put one down every year.

I noticed that mushrooms were popping up in the lawn.  That is a good indicator that the environment in the soil could be right to produce bad fungi, so I figured now was a good time with the rain to spary down the Biotamax under the leaf canopy in the pumpkin patch.
