Dr Timothy Overton and Dr Francisco Fernandez-Trillo at the University of Birmingham have demonstrated that using novel polymers microorganism can form strong and stable biofilms. Such biofilm complexes can be used in crop applications, either directly as seed treatments or alternatively as sprays or on other material or structures to be deployed in soil. The complexed microorganisms are more protected from environmental stresses and are more productive, enhancing the symbiotic effect on plants.
