Agricen, an agricultural technology company delivering applied, biochemical-based solutions for efficient and sustainable plant nutrition, and sister company, Agricen Sciences, an applied sciences research company leading the development of novel microbial and biochemical solutions for plant nutrition and health, announced the release of a new white paper titled “Growing for the Future: Supporting Sustainable Agriculture with a New Generation of Biologically Sourced Tools for Plant Nutrition.”

The white paper describes the role that next generation biologically sourced inputs can play in making existing agricultural practices more efficient and productive while addressing the demand for sustainability. The paper also illustrates the efficacy of Agricen’s product technologies through case studies for SoilBuilder and Accomplish LM, two biochemical fertilizer catalysts manufactured by Agricen. It is available for download at http://agricen.ag/15AYngo.

“Growers around the world are looking for more efficient ways to grow crops to meet human needs, while continuing to manage and maintain the land for generations to come,” said Michael Totora, President & CEO, Agricen. “Agricen’s innovative biochemical plant nutrition technologies are part of that solution. Agricen’s product technology can be incorporated into existing fertility programs to improve nutrient availability and uptake, increase yields and improve sustainability and resource utilization.”

Over the past decade, new biological and biochemical plant nutrition technologies have been developed that enhance agricultural sustainability and increase yields. These advancements have been accompanied by a growing understanding of how these product technologies work within the soil-plant system, fueled by the availability of new scientific tools and methods for molecular and genetic analysis. Agricen and Agricen Sciences have been at the forefront in the research, development and delivery of new products in this growing field.

“There is a growing interest in finding and delivering novel sources of value-added technology for crop production, not least of which are naturally occurring microbial and biochemical sources that were previously not well understood,” said Dave Lanciault, President & CEO, Agricen Sciences. “This white paper discusses some of the challenges and advances within this category, serving as an excellent resource for growers looking incorporate biologically sourced tools into their current nutrition programs.”

Agricen’s products are innovative biochemical fertilizer catalysts derived from a naturally occurring, diverse community of microorganisms and their byproducts (enzymes, organic acids and chelators), which work in the soil system to enhance fertilizer performance. The product biochemistry interacts with the natural soil chemistry to increase the availability and uptake of both applied nutrients and those that are tied-up in the soil or in crop residue; it also works to increase root size and structure, facilitating increased nutrient uptake. Agricen’s products have been shown to perform consistently over a broad range of plant species, soil types and application methods in over 600 field and greenhouse studies conducted by Agricen, Agricen Sciences, universities, the USDA and other third-party evaluators.
