Fertilizer Use Efficiency

Fertilizer substitution and fertilizer use efficiency are key targets in our pipeline. We are developing products that improve the efficiency of applied nitrogen fertilizer, allowing farmers to increase yield while maintaining existing application rates or reduce rates to lower environmental costs. Other product opportunitiess include targeted improved efficiency of phosphorous, potassium and sulfur.

Work with soybean and legumes focuses on consortia to improve Rhizobium activity. We are using the AMS process to identify microbes that complement existing nitrogen-fixing inoculants, providing improved nodulation, plant health and yield benefits.
