Frequently Asked Questions
A product which contains a naturally occurring bacteria, Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus (Gd) which rapidly enters plant cells through multiple pathways including leaf hairs, stomata, and roots. It then multiplies within plant cells and fixes atmospheric nitrogen and converts it into a form the plant can use exactly when and where it is needed, throughout the growing season.

Envita is applied to a crop or plant and migrates into and lives within the plant (endophytic). It moves into and among plant cells to live in roots and foliage of the plant. The bacteria in Envita converts nitrogen from the air to a form the plant can use for growth.
We have yet to find a crop that Envita cannot successfully colonize and achieve N-fixation benefits. Our research started in corn and soybeans and now has moved into other crops like rice, wheat, canola and cotton. Please visit our Crops page to see Envita results across different crops. If you are interested in testing Envita on a new crop, please contact us.
You can use Envita two ways:
1) apply your recommended fertility program and Envita will boost your yield OR
2) cut back your synthetic N fertilizer and maintain your normal yield.
On corn, we see yield increases when Envita is applied on top of recommended fertility programs, or growers can reduce their planned N fertilizer program and maintain traditional yields. Two great options.
Since Envita is an endophyte (lives within plants) it does not survive in the soil from one season to the next.
Envita is available from innovative dealers globally.

If you are aiming for higher yields on corn, Envita is guaranteed to perform. Conditions apply. Read more here: Performance Guarantees
Envita can be applied in-furrow and tank-mixed with leading plant protection products such as herbicides. See Use Instructions for more information
Envita is compatible with leading herbicides. See use instructions.
Upon receiving Envita, keep it away from extreme heat or cold. The product will perform best if stored at a cool room dry location until use.
Use as soon as possible after opening.
Envita is a naturally occurring, food-grade bacteria endemic to North America and is not genetically modified. Liquid formulations of Envita are currently being registered with various certification bodies. Contact your local certification agency to obtain more information.
