Maximizing Fertility with BioScience
In today’s world of Performance Agronomics, every single input, from conventional N-P-K to water quality and usage, has been constricted, which has created the need for heightened efficiencies. A variety of markets including production ornamentals and trees, highly maintained turf for sports fields, golf courses, and Commercial and Residential Turf are all trying to maximize their inputs by utilizing an expanding arsenal of Bio Science products.
Organic acids, whether humic, fulvic, poly-phenolic, or carboxylic acid spectrum, are difference makers, bringing their individual strengths to any operation. The Organic Acid based products have a variety of impacts including:
• nutrient efficiency or uptake
• mitigation of the disruptive nature of sodium, resulting in soil health
• enhanced nutrient availability by the simple removal of limiting factors
Much has been discovered about the role and functions of various plant extracts and hormones that will induce a plant response that is not synthetic in nature, bolstering anything from wound and transplant response to overcoming disease or pest pressure.
One of Helena’s newest Bio-Science products, Zypro®, is a stabilized enzyme powered by VersaShield® Formulation Technology. First, Zypro is delivered to the target on a protein carrier that has approximately a 60 day performance window. Then, it optimizes the soil microbial community, boosting nutrient uptake and kickstarting strong root growth. Finally, it helps improve plant growth, while making the product that is used more efficient.
Bio-Science technologies are not new. However, as their functionality becomes more understood, the role in any growing operation will increase the efficiency of your agronomic plan. Every specialty market has its own “yield”, whether it’s defined by an additional caliper inch on that 8 month old pine seedling, a specific amount or lack of concerning greens clippings from that day’s set up, or a healthy lawn that is overcoming water restrictions through a brutal summer. Bio-Science technology is part of our past, it is in our present, and its role is only going to become more important to the future of our industry.
