Bacillus subtilis,


Bacillus licheniformis

Used as a biocide against harmful nematodes in soil.

Bacillus megaterium

solubilizing bacteria helps plants absorb phosphorus

Bacillus mucilaginosus

also called silicate bacteria, it helps plants absorb silicon in the soil, thickens the external wax layer of plants to improve water-conservation and resist drought.

Bacillus laterosporus

produces insecticide agents, enzymes, antibacterial and antifungal agents

Photosynthetic bacteria

help to provide a vital source of oxygen to plant roots.

Actinomycetes

Gives an“earthy” smell to healthy soil

Bacillus cereus


Bacillus amyloliquefaciens,

Colonizes roots, fights root pathogens

Bacillus pumilus.

Growth of this bacterium on plant roots prevents Rhizoctonia and Fusarium spores from germinating.[



I purchase product directly from factory in Cangzhou China. Custom packaged in sealed 1/2kg bags for easier mixing in this manner (based on factory's instructions):

    1. fill up a bucket with 5-6 gals. of de-chlorinated tap or well water. When using tap water, let water stand overnight or mix/aerate thoroughly to assist in chlorine removal.

    2. add 1-2lbs. of sugar and mix with one bag (500gms) of Pangoo Soil Conditioner powder.

    3. For increasing aerobic bacteria populations, you can use an aquarium air pump to periodically aerate solution for 1-2 days.


After 3 days, the mixture is ready to be sprayed on top of your lawn or used at base of garden plants.

Spray back of the leaves or pour next to the roots with the mixture.

On lawns with areas of poor soil due to long term erosion, add black, carbon-rich topsoil or compost before application. When practical, I use a core aerator as soon as possible to help microbes become populated within existing topsoil.

Pangoo does not have mycorrhizal fungi and it does not supply fertilizer to soil. It contains beneficial bacteria that transport nutrients to plant roots, stems and leaves. Fertilizer needs to be added to soil separately.

The Beneficial Microbes in Biota Max™

The soil microorganisms in Biota Max™ tablets contains 10 different species of beneficial microbes. These beneficial microbes are natures way to have healthier, more productive crops.

Here’s the list of beneficial soil microbes in Biota Max;

Beneficial Soil Fungi in Biota Max:


Biological fertility is affected by the organisms that live in the soil and that varies greatly depending due to highly complex and dynamic conditions within the soil. Beneficial microbial populations increase plant productivity over time.


Mycorrhizal fungi colonise plant roots in exchange for carbon from the plant. Mycorrhizal fungi help to make phosphorus soluble and bring soil nutrients (phosphorus, nitrogen, micronutrients and, perhaps, water) to the plant. One major group of mycorrhizae, the ectomycorrhizae, grow on the surface layers of the roots and are commonly associated with trees. The second major group of mycorrhizae are the endomycorrhizae that grow within the root cells and which are commonly associated with grasses, row crops, vegetables and shrubs.


Actinomycetes are known to improve the availability of nutrients, minerals, enhance the production of metabolites and promote plant growth regulators. Actinomycetes are classified as bacteria but are very similar to fungus and decompose recalcitrant (hard to decompose) organic compounds. Actinomycetes are important in forming stable humus, which enhances soil structure, improves nutrient storage, and increases water retention.  Actinomycetes also help to break down organic material to enrich soil.

Bokashi, fermented organic matter in Japanese, contains large populations of actinomycetes that boost oxygen levels in soil systems.


Bacteria tend to dominate fungi in tilled or disrupted soils because the fungi prefer more acidic environments without soil disturbance. Bacteria also dominate in flooded fields because most fungi do not survive without oxygen.
