ADM and BiOWiSH Technologies, Inc. (BiOWiSH) announced ADM will offer a BiOWiSH® Fertilizer Enhancement as an option to urea, monoammonium phosphate (MAP), diammonium phosphate (DAP) and NPK blends. The new product will be available from ADM Farm Direct Fertilizer as well as the company’s wholesale business.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with ADM,” said BiOWiSH CEO Graham Beesley. “Together we will ensure that more farmers in the U.S. will be able to experience the benefits of high-quality biologically enhanced fertilizers, which are designed to increase crop production economically, safely and sustainably.”
The BiOWiSH Fertilizer Enhancement is a blend of proprietary microbial cultures coated onto dry fertilizer or mixed with liquid fertilizers to create an enhanced efficiency fertilizer. ADM plans to offer it as an option to be coated onto dry fertilizers sold through several of its terminals for the 2023 season.
The BiOWiSH Fertilizer Enhancement is specifically designed to optimize yield potential by improved nutrient uptake and to improve soil conditions for increased plant vigor. Featuring BiOWiSH’s proprietary HoloGene 3™ technology, BiOWiSH endophyticï¿½Bacillusï¿½delivers soil nutrients to crops through the rhizophagy cycle, creating a symbiotic relationship between the plant and soil microbes. This unique mode of action, combined with the product’s industry-leading shelf life, is proven to achieve consistent desired results across a broad range of operating conditions, climates and environments — all at a low cost to farmers.
“ADM is committed to delivering solutions that will enhance farmer profitability and help them sustainably meet growing demand for agricultural products. BiOWiSH is one of those solutions,” said Graig Whitehead, ADM director of biologicals and new technology. “It is an easy addition to a fertility program for farmers looking to benefit from improved nutrient use efficiency and increased yield potential.”
The BiOWiSH Fertilizer Enhancement is available at the following U.S. ADM Fertilizer terminals:
- Blytheville, Arkansas
- Camanche, Iowa
- Madison, Illinois
- Ottawa, Illinois
- Owensboro, Kentucky
- St. Paul, Minnesota
- Winona, Minnesota
Additional locations in the U.S. and Canada are expected to offer the enhancement soon.
