IL: New microbiome-based product for yield improvement

Lavie Bio has launched an inoculant for yield improvement under the brand name 'result'. "The development of 'result' included positive four-year field trials in multiple locations and commercial validation through broad-acre fields under standard farmer practices in target locations ('early adopter network')," the Lavie team explains.

"The results achieved in the field trials have demonstrated that 'result' has the potential to contribute an additional 3-4 bushels per acre and showed increased yield improvement compared with industry benchmarks. According to Lavie Bio's estimates and assuming average commodity prices, this could provide spring wheat farmers an average of $20 of additional revenue per farmed acre, which may translate to a 50% increase or more in profit. There are an estimated 25 million acres of spring wheat in North America, with about 6 million in North Dakota.  

'result' is a microbial-based inoculant that has been designed to empower plant performance based on its ability to improve the uptake and assimilation of nutrients, thereby increasing yield, and improving growers' profitability, while contributing to environmental sustainability and soil health. 'result' is intended to be applied as a seed treatment and is formulated as a water dispersible granule (WDG).

Mr. Ido Dor, Chief Executive Officer of Lavie Bio, said: "Our extended trials have indicated that 'result' is an excellent product providing strong value to farmers by significantly improving yield and productivity."
