The world we share

Why improve crop yield?

In the not-so-far future, we will need to be able to produce twice as much food as we do now. Microbial solutions work to improve crop yield, which helps create more food for this increasingly hungry world.

What is a microbial inoculant?

Inoculants are microbes like bacteria or fungi that provide a beneficial effect when added to soil or plants. Inoculants can enhance availability and uptake of nutrients by fixing nitrogen from the air or by breaking down inorganic soil phosphates, so these nutrients become available to plants.

The phosphate phenomenon

Keeping phosphate where it should be

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for the healthy growth of young plants. Greater phosphate availability can lead to expanded root volume, which in turn enhances nitrogen and potassium uptake. This can ultimately enable optimal plant growth and increase crop yield potential.

JumpStart® inoculant increases the availability and uptake of phosphate in plants.

Benefits of JumpStart®

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