Industry First Nitrogen Fixing Microbial Products
Soil is metabolically active and in a constant state of flux, changing with the climate, vegetation, and environment. Plants and animals respond to these changes and, in doing so, can change the basic characteristics of the soil.
Research on Azospirillum has shown positive effects on non-leguminous crops. Acting as a nitrogen fixer, Azospirillum harvests nitrogen from the air and soil and delivers it to the plant. While most microbial inoculants are applied to improve plant nutrition, Azospirillum has yielded favorable results in improving root structure year over year.
When stabilized in high enough concentrations, sustainable fertilizer can impact plant growth. Specifically, it takes nitrogen from the air and converts it to forms of nitrogen ingestible by the plant.
Maximizing Earth’s Potential Through Science
Increased Corn Crop Yields
In both field trials and university tests of corn over the last three years, treeatments of TerraMax sustainable products have been proven to produce higher corn crop yields over untreated fields.
- Field trials in South Dakota showed a 12.2 bushel per acre gain in yields over an untreated control field: 181.6 bushels versus 169.4 bushels.
- Studies at Colorado State University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln showed yield increases from 5 to 15 bushels per acre.
- In addition, TerraMax observed no compatibility issues when testing their products with conventional seed treatments.
