Van Wert, OH -- Advanced Biological Marketing (ABM), a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of agricultural biologicals, announced a new product launch for 2021. A metabolite, derived from Trichoderma, it has consistently provided increased yields in numerous field trials. This novel product is ABM's first non-living biological seed treatment. It will also be available as an in-furrow application.

It provides superior field performance, excellent root stimulation and drought tolerance. These benefits provide yield increases of up to 11 bushels per acre. The product is expected to be available in early 2021.

This new liquid seed treatment has a low application rate of only 0.1 fluid ounces per unit of seed. The development started in 2014 and work continues as other applications and uses are being explored. Financial assistance was provided by a grant from The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) thru the National Science Foundation.
