Agribusiness Global - "Biostimulants Continue Their Meteoric Rise"
John Wolf, Senior Director of Innovation at Agricen, agrees that while strong science supports biostimulants’ value, there is still more to learn.
“When we’re looking at a herbicide, there is a very specific mode of action,” Wolf says. “However, many biostimulants can affect multiple plant processes, so while we can narrow down the mode of action and the ultimate benefit, we need to continue to discover how biostimulants interact with each other and other tank mix partners.”
Prairie Farmer - "The Right Soil Nutrients for Every Acre from Nutrien Ag Solutions"
Loveland Products designed an “enhanced efficiency” line, to help release more nutrients in a plant-available form. Titan XC is one of these products impregnated on dry phosphorous and potassium blends, Extract with liquid programs and Accomplish LM with starter programs. These products help recycle nutrients which ends up in the grain at harvest. We also know based on studies there is less exposure to the environment.
AgriNews - "Idle Acres at Risk: Fallow Syndrome Reduces Soil Health"
A record 19.4 million acres nationwide were without row crops last growing season due to poor planting conditions and those left fallow are at risk in 2020 without the proper management practices. Brian Cornelious, Agricen director of applied sciences, said unplanted acres are susceptible to fallow syndrome — primarily defined as a phosphorous deficiency — that reduces an important fungi in the soil.
CropLife - "Regulatory Harmony Tops Most Pressing Issues for Biostimulants Market"
John Wolf, Senior Director of Innovation, Agricen [says] “An important issue for the biostimulant industry is centered on the science. As an industry, we need to continue to develop and mature the science around this segment to allow us to deliver more prescriptive solutions to growers...Today’s companies are using science and technology to formulate biostimulants that can induce superior plant responses with greater nutrient-use efficiency and sustainability.”
