Share this article

BioConsortia’s has released its latest field trial results for corn and soybean bionematicides, and for nitrogen-fixation products in development.

In the 2022 season, the company said its corn and soybean bionematicides demonstrated nematode reductions alongside yield improvements of as much as 20 percent, exceeding the yield impact of the chemical standard.

For its nitrogen-fixation leads, BioConsortia said wheat yields were preserved even when nitrogen fertilizer levels were reduced 50 percent.

“Nitrogen-fixing leads from BioConsortia demonstrated their commercial fit as robust and ease-to-use seed treatments generating a yield increase with either a reduced or full fertilizer regime,” the company reported.

"These latest field trial results truly demonstrate the power of BioConsortia R&D platform to deliver a pipeline of new products with superior efficacy and higher consistency to the current market leading products,” said Marcus Meadows-Smith, CEO of BioConsortia.
