Anuvia Uses Recycled Organic Materials to Boost Plant NutritionWed, 10 Feb 2021 08:40:18 CST
Several new plant nutrient products using recycled organic materials are available from Anuvia Plant Nutrients for the 2021 crop year.
Brett Bell, executive vice president, account management sales for Anuvia Plant Nutrients, a Florida-based agricultural technology company, was recently interviewed via Zoom by Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.
Our mission is to create sustainable products for large scale agriculture, he said.
We take food waste, ag waste and livestock waste to produce crop nutrient products that perform better than conventional fertilizers, Bell said.
After four years of work, using SymTRX for corn and wheat has increased yield by about 5 percent, Bell said.
That data comes from independent and university researchers, Bell said.
Farmers are interested in soil health and SymTRX is made from recycled organic matter, Bell said.
We put 8 percent carbon and 16 percent organic material back into the soil, along with the nutrients nitrogen and sulfur, Bell said.
We not only feed the crop, but we feed the soil, he said.
There is a lot of talk about farming sustainably by using SymTRX which has a lower greenhouse gas footprint, Bell said.
If we werenít using these waste products they would end up in a landfill, he said.
Another product available for the 2021 crop year Bell is excited about is Susterra, marketed through Mosaic.
According to the Mosaic literature, Susterra uses bio-based technology to deliver recycled organic matter and nutrients for more sustainable production.
