My company has a product in development for organic gardening. The product utilizes the culturing of native soil biology into concentrates. Schools cultures are native bacillus, fungi, trichoderma, etc.
I am in need of a summary of available agents that may be used to allow the bacteria in the solution to be in a dormant state due to pricing and logistic constraints involved with bottling and shipping a product needing constant air exchange.
In other words, I need a summary on agents used to induce a dormant state in bacteria.
