Biosolutions: a powerful tool for growers

Growers need as many tools as possible to increase yields and control disease. That’s why it’s time to look past conventional solutions to get right to the root of the problem.  

It’s time to think biological. 

Biologicals are sometimes described as agriculture’s oldest technology. Microbes, enzymes, and other proteins are life’s smallest changemakers…but they solve some of the world’s biggest problems. In agriculture, they work with and enhance natural processes including nitrogen fixation, stress tolerance, and disease protection.   

But they can face skepticism. That’s why choosing the right supplier is as important as the biosolutions themselves. 

Science backed by Data

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

At Novonesis, we’ve been thinking biological for over a century. Our reputation is built on testing and proving efficacy in large-scale field trials. 

The results are clear: Novonesis agricultural biosolutions 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

With over a century of experience in biosolutions, Novonesis has an unprecedented approach to innovation and providing quality products to help you get more from every acre.   

For example, our flagship Optimize® product is based on rhizobia, which has been used in agriculture for centuries, but we’ve never stopped improving on it. A first in the rhizobia market, Optimize® was launched with our patented LCO Promoter Technology® to improve nitrogen fixation.  

We continued to lead innovation in the industry by introducing the first lower use rate to the market for ease of application. And recently, we added a higher concentration of LCO and a second strain of rhizobia. We continually 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.
