Microbial solutions

Powerful protection, higher yields

Microbial solutions derived from naturally‐occurring microbes like bacteria and fungi can replace or complement traditional fertilizers and pest control solutions. Novozymes microbial biocontrol solutions provide powerful protection against insects, disease, and weed pests. Our bioyield enhancers improve yields.

JumpStart® seed treatment can increase the availability and uptake of phosphate.
The naturally occurring fungus Penicillium bilaiae grows along plant roots, releasing phosphate that has been bound to minerals and soil particles, so this critical nutrient is more available to your crop. 

Improved phosphate availability: 

  • Enhances early vigor 
  • Bolsters root and shoot growth, supporting greater stress tolerance and earlier, more uniform plant development 
  • Improves yield potential

Plant treated with Jumpstart

QuickRoots® microbial seed inoculant products contain two powerful microbes, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Trichoderma virens, which have the ability to release phosphate in the soil that’s not readily available to the plant. 
By unlocking the nitrogen, potassium and phosphate that are already in your fields, QuickRoots® products help to maximize the effectiveness of your inputs and your yield potential.  
Greater phosphate availability can lead to expanded root volume, which enhances nitrogen and potassium uptake.

Improved nutrient uptake can ultimately enable optimal plant growth and increased yield potential.
