Envita™ now registered in all 50 US states
Limited quantities left for the 2020 growing season, but still available through select dealers or to buy online with direct delivery to growers
For Immediate Release
Raleigh, North Carolina – March 19th, 2020
Envita, now in its second year of commercial production, is officially available in all 50 states. Registration and sales are already high for the 2020 spring 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, reducing the need for applied N fertilizer on average 27% without impacting yield. Applied in furrow, 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. On corn it delivers on average between 5-13% yield increase and in some cases up to 20%.
“A lot of great work has gone into securing registration in the last remaining states prior to seeding. It’s been years in the making and we are excited to now be able to offer Envita to growers throughout the USA.” says Nolan Berg, President & General Manager, Azotic North America. “And with supply running low if farmers can’t find Envita at local dealers they can buy online and have product shipped directly to their farm. ”
Field trials show Envita improves yield, test weight and moisture content
With recent data and observations gathered from field trials in North Dakota and Minnesota, growers are shedding new light on the crop improvements possible with Envita.
The results from these trials are particularly important as both areas experienced heavy spring rain, which as a result meant stressed crops and a shortened growing season. There were also concerns about crop maturity and N uptake.
In spite of the stress, end-of-season data from the New Salem, North Dakota trial shows that Envita-treated corn had significantly improved yield, test weight and moisture levels, with a yield increase of 11 bu/ac on Envita-treated corn. The trials also demonstrated the early maturity of Envita-treated corn, visible with black layer and denting in the kernels, which helped this crop reach an early, successful harvest.

Envita is a naturally-occurring, food grade microbe that provides plants with the ability to fix their own nitrogen from the air replacing an average of 27% of their nitrogen needs in corn. When applied in furrow or on seed, Envita grows with the plant, metabolizing nitrogen from the atmosphere (which is 78% nitrogen). Growers can choose to use Envita with their regular fertility program for a yield boost or deliver same yields using less nitrogen.
“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.”
About Azotic North America
Azotic North America was formed to introduce this natural nitrogen-fixing technology to farmers in North America. With North American offices in Raleigh, North Carolina, Guelph, Ontario and a global office in Nottingham, UK, Azotic has taken more than 20 years of academic research and created the first large scale, commercially available nitrogen-fixation product and is now offering it to farmers across the globe. Finally, there is no compromise between high yield production agriculture and nitrogen sustainability.
