Biologicals: a powerful tool for growers

Growers need as many tools as possible to increase yields and control disease. Biologicals are sometimes described as agriculture’s oldest technology.

They work with and enhance natural processes including nitrogen fixation, stress tolerance and disease protection. But they can face skepticism from growers.

That’s why it’s so important to choose products with proven results, from a reputable supplier.

Science backed by Data

Not all biological products are created equal. Quality products should be based on science and backed by reputable field data.

At Novozymes, our industry knowledge comes from being in the biological market for over a century. Our reputation is built on testing and proving efficacy in large-scale field trials.

The results are clear: Novozymes products live up to their promise, delivering consistent, significant, proven win rates across a range of crops and geographies

Innovating for higher yields today…and tomorrow

Novozymes is committed to constant innovation and providing quality products to help you get more from every acre. Ourflagship Optimize® product is a great example. 

It’s based on rhizobia, which has been used in agriculture for centuries, but we’ve continuously and consistently improved on it. A first in the rhizobia market, Optimize® was launched with our patented LCO Promoter Technology® to improve nitrogen fixation.  

Next, we continued to lead innovation in the industry by introducing the first lower use rate to the market for ease of application. Most recently, we’ve added a higher concentration of LCO and a second strain of rhizobia. We focus on advancing the benefits of our products and enhancing the delivery of our technology.

Thanks to our commitment to innovation, half of our North American sales in 2025 will be of products that are three years old or less. We never stop innovating.
