Chance of a return on investment
Average yield increase
Seed treatment TIROS is comprised of a unique combination of endophytes which enable all crops to fix nitrogen, sequester phosphorous, potassium and zinc, and better withstand drought stress.
The first true endophytes to be commercialised in the world, TIROS also improves plant germination, increases growth of root and shoot biomass, and creates more robust crops which can handle stress.
The seed treatment’s proven abilities mean that crops require less artificial fertiliser, which is good news for the environment as well as a farmer’s bottom line.
Increased root mass
Increased shoot mass
Enhanced nutrient uptake throughout the season to maximise crop growth
Reduce abiotic stress
Optimise green leaf area
Maximise yield – average yield response 0.55 t/ha over equivalent farm standard
Excellent ROI 8:1 with wheat valued at £125/tonne
Bacterial endophyte curtobacterium sp WW7 pseudomonas koreensis WW6, in nitrogen limited carbon containing bacterial growth media
Liquid seed treatment
10 litres equivalent to 10 tonnes (1 litre per tonne application rate)
Active ingredient: > 108 CFU/g curtobacterium sp WW7 and pseudomonas koreensis WW6 (CFU: colony forming unit. Unit of measure for living microorganisms able to multiply).
Safety: fully genome mapped guarantees no mammalian toxicity.
Storage: original material is freeze dried giving it a minimum 24 months shelf life.
The endophytes from the University of Washington have been specially selected to fix atmospheric nitrogen and sequester other nutrients from the soil. They live within the whole plant from root to shoots.
