Syngenta Biologicals to distribute Unium Bioscience product

Syngenta Biologicals and Unium Bioscience are collaborating to bring biological seed treatment solutions based on NUELLO iN to farmers across northwest Europe.

NUELLO iN improves a plant’s ability to convert and use nitrogen readily available in the atmosphere and has the potential to reduce nitrogen use by more than 10 percent, according to the companies.

Through this collaboration, Syngenta gains exclusive access to the product NUELLO iN and becomes the exclusive commercial distributor across northwest Europe for Unium’s TIROS biological seed treatment.

NUELLO iN works by combining Curtobacterium salicaceae, Pseudomonas siliginis, and Sphingobium yanoikuyae bacterial strains produced by Intrinsyx Bio with Unium’s prebiotic stimulant, and functions within the plant to convert freely available nitrogen from the surroundings into a form the crop can use.

Syngenta will be offering NUELLO iN in the coming months across the UK, with commercial distribution across Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to follow in 2024. Intrinsyx Bio produces a range of products described as bacterial endophytes for biological nitrogen fixation and phosphorus efficiency.
