Rethinking Crop Nutrition: ON Technology from Pivot Bio
Every season, farmers face unpredictable growing conditions. Weather, field variability and other environmental factors can prevent up to half of the nitrogen applied to crops from being available to plants that need it.
This is where Pivot Bio’s innovative ON Technology™ comes in. It harnesses the innate ability of naturally occurring microbes to provide cereals crops with nutrients, such as nitrogen, right when they need them the most. ON Technology, also known as guided microbial remodeling, is a state-of-the-art process that identifies, characterizes and fine-tunes microbes to realize their full potential. Adapting the genetic material naturally present in a microbe significantly increases nutrient uptake by the crop.
This is a game-changing approach. ON technology allows farmers to protect their investment and help them achieve their yield potential with better environmental outcomes.
