IBG Biofertilizer and MPOB Jointly Develop iM-bioGuard to Prevent Ganoderma Infection in Oil Palm Plantations.

iM-bioGuard Biofertilizer Unveiled at PIPOC 2023: A Breakthrough in Ganoderma Prevention

In a ground-breaking collaboration with the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), IBG Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd. proudly launched its latest innovation, iM-bioGuard biofertilizer, at the prestigious Palm Oil and Agricultural Commodities Exhibition (PIPOC) 2023 held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) from November 7th to 9th. The launch was a momentous occasion as iM-bioGuard biofertilizer marks the first bacteria liquid formulation designed for Ganoderma prevention, setting a new standard in sustainable agricultural practices.

As an honored participant in PIPOC 2023 alongside MPOB, IBG Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd. showcased iM-bioGuard biofertilizer at both the MPOB Main Pavilion and the Biology and Sustainability Research Division (BSRD), providing attendees with a first-hand look at this pioneering biofertilizer.

iM-bioGuard biofertilizer is more than a preventive measure against Ganoderma; it represents a paradigm shift in biofertilizer technology. Formulated with prebiotic elements as a nutrient source, this innovative product not only supports general soil health but also acts as a shield against pathogenic fungi and bacteria, offering comprehensive protection for plants. Each 100 ml of iM-bioGuard biofertilizer delivers at least 106 cfu/g of beneficial endophytic bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus subtilis and other prebiotic elements. IBG Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd. is certified with ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 (chemical & microbiology lab certified).

“We are thrilled to present iM-bioGuard biofertilizer to the market, a product born out of our collaboration with MPOB. This marks a significant step forward in the preventive measures against Ganoderma disease,” expressed Yeat Nai Jin, Marketing Director at IBG Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd.

“The soft launch at PIPOC 2023 has been met with great enthusiasm, and we extend our gratitude to everyone who visited our station, expressing their keen interest in this revolutionary product.”

The positive feedback received during the soft launch underscores the potential impact of iM-bioGuard biofertilizer on the palm oil industry. With its unique formulation and preventive properties, the biofertilizer promises to enhance crop yields while promoting environmentally sustainable practices.

In addition to its preventive capabilities, iM-bioGuard biofertilizer’s prebiotic elements composition contributes to the overall health of the soil, aligning with the industry’s growing commitment to sustainable and green agricultural practices. IBG Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd. looks forward to the wider release of iM-bioGuard biofertilizer, confident that it will play a pivotal role in transforming the landscape of palm oil cultivation.

The collaborative effort with MPOB signifies a commitment to innovation and sustainability, paving the way for a greener and more resilient future in the palm oil industry.
