BioEnsure® is a liquid crop treatment aimed at providing protection from the abiotic stresses Mother Nature lobs at growers; think temperature extremes and drought. It can increase nutrient-use-efficiency, yield and yield quality. It is easily applied as a seed treatment, in-furrow or as a foliar spray. (OMRI Certified Organic).
BioEnsure® consists of multiple strains of powerful symbiotic fungi that confer varied stress tolerances to crops. This liquid agricultural treatment provides outstanding protection from extreme ecological conditions including drought and hot and cold temperature extremes. In addition to this abiotic stress tolerance, growers have documented the following benefits:
+ Increased crop yield & yield quality
+ Increased tolerance to soil salinization, soil compaction
and sodic soils.
+ Decreased water requirements
+ Improved seed germination
+ Enhanced seedling growth and development
+ Increased nutrient use efficiency
BioEnsure® is not only highly effective under high abiotic stress conditions, it is also remarkably effective under low stress conditions. In order to assess this we gathered multiple field trial evaluations and ranked them according to stress level. This allows us to see yields increase as stress increases, but we also see yields increase under low stress conditions. This makes BioEnsure® a powerfully diverse crop treatment.
What makes BioEnsure® unique?
There are a diverse array of biological products on the commercial seed treating market. However, the fungal organisms we have selected are very distinct from all other available products on the market.
The distinctiveness, and success, of BioEnsure® is based on the fact that individuals of a species can be very different from one another. Just as humans are different from one another. We have capitalized on this by selecting fungal isolates with great capacity for conferring stress tolerance.
BioEnsure® can be applied directly to seed, in-furrow, or as a foliar spray. It is formulated to be compatible with common chemicals and other biologicals.
BioEnsure® is not genetically modified which allows it to be registered by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). OMRI offers independent review of input products intended for organic farming and processing. Their standards are based on the USDA National Organic Program and they are industry leaders in the field of organic certification.
BioEnsure® is also approved organic by California's independent Organic Input Material review board.
BioEnsure® is currently registered for sale throughout the United States, as well as being available in India, Argentina and Australia.
It is completely sourced and manufactured in the U.S.
Key distinctions of BioEnsure®:
+ Provides multiple abiotic stress tolerances to a diversity of crop plants. Strains have
been selected to protect plants against drought, salt and temperature stresses.
+ Increases plant nutrient use efficiency (NUE).
+ Decreases water consumption in plants and increases crop yields, without
requiring additional inputs.
+ Works similarly in diverse soil types and climate zones around the globe.
+ Lives symbiotically inside plants, and resides there throughout it's lifetime. As a result,
does not compete with soil microorganisms, does not establish in the soil and is unable
+ The liquid formulation can be applied using any type of commercial seed treatment
equipment, including atomizing rotary treaters.
+ Product shelf-life is 1+ year when stored at refrigeration temperature (39°F / 4°C) and
over two years on seed.
+ Is not a bio-pesticide (used to protect plants against biotic stress or plant pathogens).
It does not inhibit or kill fungal pathogens.
+ Does not grow into fruit, seeds or tubers.
+ Compatible with chemicals commonly used in seed treating, including the following
fungicides: Conazoles, Thiabendazole, Fludioxonil, Metalaxyl, Mefenoxam, Sedaxane,
Thiram, Captan, Myclobutanil, Thiophanate, Trifloxystrobin, Afloxystrobin, Hymexazol,
Penflufen. (Can not be tank mixed with fungicides that contain biocides.)
