BioAg solutions to drive your performance

BioAg solutions to drive your performance

Growers around the world trust our microbial inoculant, biostimulant and biocontrol solutions to drive their crop performance. Our scientific heritage is your guarantee of reliable products. 

Bioyield and biocontrol solutions

More than a century ago, we created the BioAg business with our Nitragin® brand, which is still a market leader today. Because we put innovation at the heart of our business, our groundbreaking pipeline will continue to propel agriculture into the future.

Our dynamic portfolio of biological solutions is derived from naturally-occurring microbes and enzymes. Microbial inoculants in our bioyield solutions complement traditional fertilizers. They increase the availability of key nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The result is improved crop yields. Our biocontrol solutions unlock new potential to fight pests and disease supplementing an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Integrated Resource Management (IRM) system. They provide powerful protection against insects and disease pests to help keep crops healthy.

Climate-smart solutions for agriculture

Climate-smart solutions for agriculture

As part of an integrated farm management approach, our products can help you adapt to the challenges associated with a changing climate. They also deliver significant CO2 savings. For example, if our JumpStart® technology were used on all US corn, it could potentially reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 3.9 million tons of CO2. That’s the equivalent of the annual tail pipe emissions from 820,000 US passenger cars.

Feeding a growing world

Feeding a growing world

To feed a projected 9.7 billion people by 2050, the world needs a sharp increase in agricultural production.

Yet from climate change to pests, a range of factors threaten agricultural output.

How do we close the yield gap?

How do we close the yield gap?

The World Resources Institute (WRI) estimates that if production continues with ‘business as usual’, there will be a 56% gap between the crop calories produced in 2010 and those needed to feed the global population in 2050.  

By allowing you to get the most out of every acre, our biological solutions can help close the yield gap.

How do we prevent climate-related crop yield declines?

How do we prevent climate-related crop yield declines?

According to the United Nations Foundation, a predictable climate and food security are inextricably linked. Planting zone shifts, more extreme weather conditions and less water availability all threaten food production.

Our biological solutions have a role to play in preventing climate-related crop yield declines. They support sustainable food production and resilient agricultural practices.

How do we deal with the rising threat of pests?

How do we deal with the rising threat of pests?

According to a recent study in Science, insect pests currently consume between 5% and 20% of major grain crops. Rising temperatures are expected to make this problem worse. Climate change is also expected to lead to an increase in crop disease, with new pathogens appearing on new crops in new places. And both weed and insect species are developing more resistance to pesticides.

Our biological solutions reduce the likelihood of developed resistance. That means they can help combat the rising threat of pests.

How do we deal with growing per-capita food consumption?

How do we deal with growing per-capita food consumption?

Per unit of protein, meat has a far larger land use impact than cereal crops, and our meat production has already quadrupled since 1961. Demand for meat protein tends to rise in line with incomes. That means growing middle classes in many emerging nations will continue to push this upward trend.

Our biological solutions help the farmers who grow feed for livestock to get the most out of every acre. That can contribute to a reduction in the land use impact of meat.
