Envita, now in its second year of commercial production, is officially available in all 50 states. Registration and sales are already high for the 2020 spring growing season and farmers throughout the U.S. can buy online with direct-to-farm delivery options available.
A naturally-occurring, food-grade microbe, Envita provides corn and other crops with the ability to fix their own nitrogen from the air and has proven success with farmers throughout the U.S. corn belt, reducing the need for applied N fertilizer on average 27% without impacting yield. Applied in furrow, Envita is the only nitrogen-fixing bacteria for corn, soybeans and other crops that works from within plant cells to fix nitrogen from root to leaf all season long. On corn it delivers on average between 5-13% yield increase and in some cases up to 20%.
“A lot of great work has gone into securing registration in the last remaining states prior to seeding. It's been years in the making and we are excited to now be able to offer Envita to growers throughout the USA.” says Nolan Berg, President & General Manager, Azotic North America. “And with so much uncertainty in the world today we are trying to do our part by offering a product that can diversify the nitrogen supply and be shipped directly to farms.”
Field trials show Envita improves yield, test weight and moisture content
With recent data and observations gathered from field trials in North Dakota and Minnesota, growers are shedding new light on the crop improvements possible with Envita.
The results from these trials are particularly important as both areas experienced heavy spring rain, which as a result meant stressed crops and a shortened growing season. There were also concerns about crop maturity and N uptake.
In spite of the stress, end-of-season data from the New Salem, North Dakota trial shows that Envita-treated corn had significantly improved yield, test weight and moisture levels, with a yield increase of 11 bu/ac on Envita-treated corn. The trials also demonstrated the early maturity of Envita-treated corn, visible with black layer and denting in the kernels, which helped this crop reach an early, successful harvest.
