Inspiring change – demonstrating return on investment for growers

Inspiring change through a refreshed approach to crop health, is the ethos behind a new product concept from Agrovista.

The Innovation Range addresses the need for targeted bioscience products, offering growers clearly segmented solutions that translate into tangible yield-based results.

Products include established amino acid-based biostimulants Terrasorb® and Equilibrium®, as well as two new products – Klorofill® and 3ALO t6p.

Head of Research and Development, Craig Morgan, said: “With so many bioscience products available, it can be difficult to understand what they each offer and how they benefit the grower.

“To counter this, our new Innovation Range breaks down each product to understand its mode of action and then targets that against a specific stage of crop development.

“This means each product supports a specific outcome, whether that’s maximising chlorophyll production at flag leaf, or mitigating stress during high energy periods such as establishment.

“It’s this refreshed approach that we believe will inspire positive change and new ways of thinking, proving that used correctly, biostimulants and bioscience can demonstrate a valid return on investment.”

The range targets three key areas – water and nutrient uptake, solar conversion, and relocating sugars.

To boost water and nutrient uptake, Terrasorb provides plants with 18 essential ready-made amino acids in the naturally active L form. For the plant, this results in increased root and shoot biomass, as well as improved energy usage and stress tolerance. For the grower this equates to a stronger and more robust crop, and a positive yield response.

Also aimed at this area is Equilibrium – a dual purpose biostimulant for high value crops such as potatoes, that improves the consistency of marketable yield.

Klorofill is a keto-acid based crop enhancer that improves chlorophyll production through effective solar conversion. This product maximises green leaf area during times of rapid growth, such as flag leaf stage.

To improve the relocation of sugars within a crop, 3ALO t6p balances carbohydrates, including sucrose, to maximise seed and grain filling. This results in improved stress management and optimises yield potential.

Craig added: “We’re really pleased to be launching our Innovation Range. Not only does it demonstrate the creative thinking of our R&D, but it also supports the rest of our agronomic activities.

“Following a challenging few months, these products could really come into their own, helping crops to grow away from stress and maximise their yield potential.”
