Corteva Agriscience has launched its Utrisha N nutrient efficiency optimizer in Europe as part of its Biologicals portfolio. It is an alternative nitrogen source that can supply actively growing plants with additional nitrogen to facilitate plant growth.
Monica Sorribas, Corteva Agriscience Marketing Leader, Europe, said: "This technology provides value through integrated nutrition management efficiency in natural field conditions, adapting to the plants’ growth needs, and helping to sustainably maximize crop yield potential. It will be available for a wide range of crops, and it is launched throughout Europe, with the exception of Turkey, the Netherlands, and the Nordic countries.
“We’re launching Utrisha N in response to demand from European consumers for food produced using sustainable crop protection products. The launch of Utrisha N is another step forward for Corteva’s expanding global Biologicals portfolio, which is dedicated to developing biostimulants, biocontrol, and pheromone products with proven, predictable performance.”
Utrisha N is based on the endophytic bacterium Methylobacterium symbioticum, which works with the plant to secure needed nitrogen from the atmosphere.
