25 November 2021, Switzerland: Corteva Agriscience has launched Utrisha™ N nutrient efficiency optimizer in Europe as part of its Biologicals portfolio, helping meet demand for more sustainable crop protection products.
Utrisha™ N is an alternative nitrogen source that can supply actively growing plants with additional nitrogen to facilitate plant growth.
This disruptive technology provides value through integrated nutrition management efficiency in natural field conditions, adapting to the plants’ growth needs and helping to sustainably maximize crop yield potential. It will be available for a wide range of crops, including row crops, vegetables, orchards, grapes, range and pastures and it is launched throughout Europe, with the exception of Turkey, the Netherlands and the Nordic countries.
Monica Sorribas, Corteva Agriscience Marketing Leader, Europe, said: “We’re launching Utrisha™ N in response to demand from European consumers for food produced using sustainable crop protection products.
“Corteva Agriscience continues to bring new and innovative solutions to market by offering natural-origin products that work complementarily with our conventional crop protection solutions, such as Optinyte™ nitrogen stabilizer.
“Utrisha™ N can help farmers meet changing environmental conditions while keeping their crops productive and healthy. The launch of the product reinforces our offer to improve sustainable nitrogen efficiency and availability, enhancing yield potential and sustainability, in line with the Corteva Agriscience 2030 Sustainability Goals.
“The launch of Utrisha™ N is another step forward for Corteva’s expanding global Biologicals portfolio, which is dedicated to developing biostimulants, biocontrol and pheromone products with proven, predictable performance.”
Utrisha™ N is based on the endophytic bacterium Methylobacterium symbioticum, which works with the plant to secure needed nitrogen from the atmosphere.
