Dr. Gerald Henry, University of Georgia, recently completed work in which he studied nutrient efficiency and soil health of SymTRX™. Here’s what he found:
- Nitrogen leaching: 50.2% reduction vs. urea and 39.9% reduction vs. ammonium sulfate.
- Soil health assessment: 248.6% increase in soil microbial activity for more rapid microbial recolonization compared to ammonium sulfate.
- Root mass increase: 27% compared to ammonium sulfate.
Environmental Resources Management (ERM), a leading global environmental consulting firm, recently conducted a study that verified the sustainability impact of Anuvia™ Plant Nutrient’s technology on corn, rice, and cotton.
They found that for every million acres of crops that use SymTRX™, the reduction of greenhouse gases is equivalent to removing 20,000 to 30,000 cars from the roads. With 90 million acres of corn in the United States alone, this would conservatively translate to 1.8 million cars removed in perpetuity. Anuvia is already in use on more than 500,000 acres, with production capacity planned to dramatically increase by 2020.
Other highlights of the ERM study and technology benefits include:
- 10% reduction of greenhouse gases on corn
- 32% reduction of greenhouse gases on cotton and rice
- 4 to 13 times lower carbon footprint (compared to inorganic fertilizers) from manufacturing process
The result of the delivery of nutrients at the right time is crops that deliver higher yields and increased ROI. Repeatedly, through multiple studies and across geographies, SymTRX™ has been proven to increase yields and profits for farmers. Would you like to see the trial results?
