Corteva Agriscience’s nutrient efficiency biostimulant Utrisha N has been granted organic certification following its UK and Ireland launch this year.
Utrisha N is now approved for use on cereals, oilseed rape, peas, beans, and grain maize, on organic farms, as an alternative and additional nitrogen source that can facilitate plant growth; to sustainably maximise crop yield potential.
Corteva say that Utrisha N has a wide application window and is foliar applied. It should be applied at a rate of 333g/ha, when the crop is actively growing, and at a temperature between 10 and 30°C.
They recommend applying the biostimulant early in the morning when the stomata are open and there is a good soil coverage.
Clare Stapley, biostimulants product manager for Corteva UK & Ireland, said: “We are very excited to have been granted organic certification for Utrisha N with Organic Farmers and Growers (OF&G) and to be able to offer organic farmers a product that can deliver a supplemental source of nitrogen.”
“Utrisha N is a novel nutrient efficiency biostimulant that enables plants to fix nitrogen from the air and make it available to the plant.“With the cost of nitrogen soaring, an alternative source is vital and it’s great that we can now offer organic farmers the option to incorporate Utrisha N into their fertiliser plans for next year and produce food using a sustainable product.”
Utrisha N is available to order through crop production specialists Hutchinsons.
