What is Guardian y-PGA?
Poly-γ-glutamic acid (γ-PGA) is a biosynthetic anionic homo-polyamide chiral biopolymer consisting of repeating L-glutamic acid and D-glutamic acid units water-soluble, non-toxic, and biodegradable. Therefore, y-PGA can be used safely in various applications, such as agriculture. Poly-y-glutamic acid is derived from multiple Bacillus species of bacteria; B. licheniformis, B. sonorensis, B. megaterium, B. amyloliquefaciens, and B. subtilis. y-PGA is best used in the agricultural capacity for its anionic, biodegradable and biocompatible properties. In addition, various studies have shown that y-PGA can significantly increase the production of multiple crops such as wheat and cucumber.
How Does Guardian y-PGA Work?
Microbial biopolymers are degradable, non-toxic, and eco-friendly, making them suitable for their agricultural implementation to improve crop yield. The difference between biodegradable and bio-based polymers is that biopolymers undergo degradation when introduced to microorganisms, making y-PGA a strong candidate for agricultural use over its bio-based polymer counterparts. y-PGA works to improve the plant uptake of various nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, leading to increased plant biomass. y-PGA strengthens the nutrient uptake capacity by enhancing root biomass production and activity. y-PGA increases plant production, which leads to more nutrient uptake by the plan. y-PGA increases the plant's nitrogen uptake and improves the nitrogen availability within the soil by enhancing microbial and urease activities. y-PGA is produced through a variety of Bacillus bacteria, Bacillus subtilis, B. anthracis, B. licheniformis, B. thuringensis, B. cereus, B. pumilus, B. amyloliquefaciens, B. mojavensis, B. atrophaeus, and B. megaterium.
