And your choice for a highly effective PGPR product.
A phosphate-solubilizing plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) product, SYNTHOS nutrient enhancer from Koch Agronomic Services (Koch) is designed to produce enzymes and organic acids that improve solubilization and release bound nutrients.
This process converts phosphate-based fertilizer into readily available forms for uptake and use in a variety of crops—making it a must-have for any operation whose soil is facing a phosphorus deficiency.
As a PGPR product, SYNTHOS increases nutrient use efficiency by improving soil health. Growth-stimulating bacteria have a positive effect, including nitrogen fixation, solubility of phosphorus fertilizer, mineralization and decomposition of crop residue. By making nutrients useful for plants, SYNTHOS improves plant adaptability and promotes plant growth. SYNTHOS can also save growers both time and money in the field with a range of benefits.
SYNTHOS can be stored for two years before microbial viability is compromised, extending the window for application. It is also viable on fertilizer for up to 18 months, depending on storage conditions.
Applying SYNTHOS is simple. It’s formulated to impregnate bulk dry fertilizer and can be applied banded.
SYNTHOS helps convert phosphate-based fertilizers into readily available forms for plant uptake, helping to potentially increase yields whenever there’s a phosphorus deficiency in the soil. It can also enhance root mass development when applied with dry fertilizer.
The mineral oil-based formulation of SYNTHOS acts as a dust suppressant and helps with reducing particle buildup during storage, blending and spreading.
Promote a more robust root system and control dust with SYNTHOS: a highly effective PGPR product and proven solution for phosphorus deficient fields.
SYNTHOS is phosphate-soluble and comes as an easy-to-handle liquid formulation. It produces more even coating, can be stored for two years and is proven to boost yield potential when there is phosphorus deficiency in the soil.
A research study with seven trials in Canada from 2019-2020 showed MAP treated with SYNTHOS and applied at 30 lbs/P2O5 acre increased yield by an average of 3 bu/acre over MAP at 30 lbs/P2O5 acre.
One reason for the boost: the bioactives in SYNTHOS produce enzymes and organic acids that improve the solubilization of phosphorus fertilizer into plant-available forms and release bound nutrients. These bioactives also produce growth metabolites that stimulate a plant’s root system, improving nutrient and water uptake while optimizing both crop growth and yield potential.
A research study with seven trials in Canada from 2019-2020 showed that canola treated with SYNTHOS at 15 lbs/P2O5 acre increased yield by an average of 2 bu/acre over MAP at 15 lbs/P2O5 acre. SYNTHOS at 30 lbs/P2O5 acre also increased yield by an average of 2 bu/acre over MAP at 30 lbs/ P2O5.
