New technology from Verdesian accelerates nutrient uptake

Verdesian Life Sciences has released Take Off ST seed-treatment technology to help farmers produce the best crop yield possible, starting from the moment seeds are planted.

The seed treatment accelerates nutrient uptake in soybean, corn and wheat seeds to give them a cost-effective boost.

“Take Off ST is a seed treatment than can be applied equally well to soybeans, corn and wheat to accelerate the crop plant’s natural ability to acquire nutrients and put them to work during seed germination and early plant growth. It improves nitrogen-efficiency in corn, soybeans, wheat and other cereal crops,” Ryan Bond, Verdesian's vice president of marketing, said. “Take Off ST allows more applied nitrogen to be taken up by the crop making for stronger and faster growth. Plus, improved nitrogen uptake and use by the crop leaves less nitrogen in the soil at risk of being lost to the environment and puts that nitrogen into harvestable bushels.”

The natural plant processes of crop growth rate, carbon dioxide fixation and photosynthesis help crops to be healthy from the beginning of the growing season until harvest.

“Farmers are always being asked to produce more with less, whether to control costs or protect the environment. Verdesian is confident Take Off ST will help farmers achieve better profitability and higher efficiency,” Verdesian Chief Operating Officer Greg Thompson said. “Verdesian is dedicated to bringing farmers environmentally sustainable technology that helps them achieve a higher yield potential and a better bottom line.”
