US ADM to offer biologically enhanced fertilizer to farmers

Mark Milam


HOUSTON (ICIS)–US agribusiness titan Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) and BiOWiSH Technologies announced ADM will offer a BiOWiSH fertilizer enhancement as an option to urea, phosphate and NPK blend volumes.

The fertilizer enhancement is a blend of proprietary microbial cultures coated onto dry fertilizer or mixed with liquid fertilizers to create an enhanced efficiency fertilizer.

It is specifically designed to optimise yield potential by improved nutrient uptake and to improve soil conditions for increased plant vigour. By using endophytic Bacillus to deliver soil nutrients to crops through the rhizophagy cycle, it creates a symbiotic relationship between the plant and soil microbes.

The company said this unique mode of action is proven to achieve consistent desired results across a broad range of operating conditions, climates and environments at a low cost.

ADM plans to offer it as an option to be coated onto dry fertilizers sold through several of its terminals for the 2023 season.

“ADM is committed to delivering solutions that will enhance farmer profitability and help them sustainably meet growing demand for agricultural products. BiOWiSH is one of those solutions,” said Graig Whitehead, ADM director of biologicals and new technology.

“It is an easy addition to a fertility programme for farmers looking to benefit from improved nutrient use efficiency and increased yield potential.”
