BIORIZON BIOTECH ENHANCES INVESTIGATION TEAM IN ORDER TO PRODUCE BENEFICIAL BACTERIA FOR AGRICULTURE
It is a revolutionary industrial process promoted by the Net Campus of International Excellence Network in Agri-food Activity
Doctor Antonio Jesús Vizcaíno Torres, researcher at the Department of Biology and Geology of the University of Almería (UAL) is the beneficiary of the Mobility Assistance for Doctors from the NETWORK of Campus of International Excellence in Agrifood Activity (CEIAA) of the Triptolemos Foundation. "La Caixa" banking Foundation is backing this initiative, managed through the Triptolemos Foundation's Network.
The main objective of this aid is to contribute to the maximum efficiency of the Spanish Agri-Food System in coordination and strategic articulation of its actors, using the mobility of doctors among research groups of centres belonging to the universities network.
Soil fertility Improvement
Integrated in BIORIZON BIOTECH team, M. Vizcaíno will contribute to the optimization of an industrial-scale process of a bacterial strain that improves fertility of the soil in order to increase the durability and guarantee its quality over time. To improve the safety of use of this type of biological products too. It is intended to optimize the obtaining procedure by adjusting parameters and establishing quality controls in order to determine optimal operational conditions required to stabilize a specific bacterial strain.
In these tests the yield will be determined to guarantee a minimum concentration of viable bacteria and the stability of the product will be evaluated with the purpose of guaranteeing the viability at the time of its use by the farmer. The aim is also to apply the results in the production systems of BIORIZON BIOTECH and analyze the possibility of protecting the process by applying for a patent. The research carried out during the period of stay are also part of the BACAGRO Research Project (Production of bacteria for agricultural use as soil fertility enhancers and protective agents against phytopathogens, RTC-2015-3897-2) in which both Biorizon Biotech and the University of Almería collaborate with the Cajamar Foundation since October 2015.
