RESEARCH After seven years of research and actually solving the problem we discovered that Rudolph Steiner had already proposed the same principals in East Germany in 1924.  However his method is not only time consuming and not very complete, but impractical to apply to large scale commercial farming.  This is probably where the compost tea idea comes from. The problem is that compost does not contain all the microbes that are necessary. THE COMPOSITION OF SOIL BIO-MUTI Soil Bio-Muti is made from virgin soil which contains all the vital growth components: i.e. bacteria and fungi spores. In the SBM the bacteria is in a stabilised condition after having consumed the food and became dormant. It can then survive for a few years but does not like high temperatures or direct sunlight. With an optical microscope you can’t see the bacteria in the Bio-Muti and they do not grow in a Petri dish with a growth medium. The only way to analyse the Soil Bio-Muti is by costly molecular DNA analysis, or maybe with an electron microscope. The laboratory test results of Soil Bio-Muti solution show that when it is still actively growing it contains more than 875 000 bacteria per millilitre. The reason for it’s success is that it is grown collectively. (A) YEAST and FUNGI IN SOIL BIO-MUTI  Yeast is especially abundant on the roots of several plants, such as cabbage, corn, sugar beet, etc. Yeast is mostly found in the upper layers of soil, ranging from 2 to 10 cm in the soil. Their numbers are increased by metabolisable substances. Yeast has been shown to promote plant growth, produce antibiotics, induce resistance of host tissues and produce plant growth regulators. The following were found in Bio-Muti: Saccaromyces cerevisiae, Candida glabrata, Issatchenkia sp. Issatchenkia orientalis. (B) BACTERIA IN SOIL BIO-MUTI: 1. SYMBIOTIC NITROGEN BINDERS: These are the bacteria that make nodules on plant roots. We all know them on the roots of legumes like Soya, groundnuts etc: Sinorhizobium ; Bradyrhizobiaceae 2. OPEN NITROGEN FIXERS AND HUMUS MAKERS: These are the most important components of SBM and they are responsible for the dramatic growth in plants that we see: Acetobactor lovaniensis & Acetobactor ghanensis “’The Genus Acetobacter is known for its ability to convert ethanol to acetic acid in the presence of oxygen. Acetobacter is an obligatory aerobic, nitrogen-fixing bacterium. Several species of this genus has been shown to promote plant growth although the exact mechanisms responsible for this are not yet fully understood.’’ (Dr. A J K Surridge 2011) The following Bacteria families found are suspected of doing the same, but are still recorded as uncultured: Marinobactor Rhodobactor capsilatus Limnobactor thiooxida.
