A new mode of action for nitrogen fixation. Envita is a naturally-occurring, food-grade microbe discovered and isolated from sugar cane in 1988 by Dr. Ted Cocking of the University of Nottingham.
Envita establishes itself within the plant cells and forms vesicles or small pockets for nitrogen fixation. Envita is unique because it develops that relationship with cells throughout the plant, rather than just in the roots like rhizobia do. Envita will live in the plant throughout the season to supplement nitrogen requirements.
- Adapted to multiple crops (corn, soybeans, cereals, rice, etc.)
- Environmentally friendly
- Alternative source of N when plant can’t access fertilizer N due to too wet or too dry conditions
- Studies have shown a 5-13% average yield increase
- Supplements or may replace a portion of fertilizer nitrogen application
