Envita™ N-fixing bacteria NOW available in foliar application
Registered in 27 states, foliar application opens up access to the N-fixing bacteria to millions of corn acres in the U.S.
For Immediate Release
Raleigh, North Carolina – May 14, 2020
Now in its second year of commercial production and following a successful 2019 grower field-scale trial program, growers throughout the US can now apply Envita as a foliar application. Envita is the only N-fixing bacteria that works from within the plant cell to fix N all season long when and where the plant needs it most.
Growers in the 2019 foliar trial experienced significant yield increase despite tough growing conditions throughout the corn belt with yield increases averaging 6 bu/ac.
“We participated in the Envita Foliar trial in 2019 because I really wanted to push the envelope on yield,” says Joel Lipp who farms in Laurel, Nebraska. “At harvest we were running two machines. I was sitting in one, and I’ve never seen my yield monitor go that high. The Envita gave us a 15 bu/ac increase.”
“We tried Envita on corn as part of the foliar trial last year,” says Dane Whitley, Grower, Ness City Kansas. “We really thought we’d see no difference because we had 120 lbs of actual N applied, and very low yields with almost no rain. When we were harvesting we noticed the plants looked healthier in part of the field and had an impressive yield increase despite really terrible conditions.”
Envita’s success on farm, along with its product expansion will improve access to farmers throughout the US. “Envita is a revolution in nitrogen fixation,” explains Ray Chyc, CEO Azotic North America. “Not only can corn and other crops now fix nitrogen all season long, growers now have more options for application methods and timing to suit the conditions on their farms.”
With a spray window of V1-V6, Envita is ideally sprayed between V2-V3 stages. Registered in 27 states, Envita for foliar use retails at a price of $9.75/acre. Limited quantities are available for the 2020 growing season and farmers throughout the USA can buy online with direct-to-farm delivery options available.
A naturally-occurring, food-grade microbe, Envita provides corn and other crops with the ability to fix their own nitrogen from the air and has proven success with farmers throughout the US corn belt. Growers can choose to use Envita with their regular fertility program for a yield boost or deliver same yields using less nitrogen. Envita is the only nitrogen-fixing bacteria for corn, soybeans and other crops that works from within plant cells to fix nitrogen from root to leaf all season long.

“Row crop farmers are quite familiar with the natural nitrogen fixing abilities of crops like soybeans. Now imagine that crops like corn can also fix nitrogen on their own and not just in the roots – throughout the entire plant, all season long. It’s like turning crops into nitrogen-fixing machines,” says Erika Wagner, Chief Agronomist North America, Azotic. “Whether farmers are looking to boost their yields, reduce their nitrogen, or both, Envita provides options.”
