Preparing for the Environmental Impact on Soybeans

The 2012 and early 2013 weather conditions have created a scenario that affects biological nitrogen fixation in soybeans.  Here's what your customers are facing:

  • Dry and hot soil conditions were very common last summer, which is lethal to background / native soil populations of rhizobia bacteria, especially those that nodulate soybeans.
  • Reduced background / native populations may result in reduced root nodulation and nitrogen fixation in 2013 with potentially negative effects on yield - click here to see this newsletter from The Ohio State University for additional information
  • Now we're experiencing cold, wet soils across our geography, which could further impact biological nitrogen fixation.

These conditions create a challenge for growers.  Here's what your customers can do to be prepared for environmental stresses, past and present:

  • Utilize new inoculant technology. Trident Bio-Inducer for Soybeans replenishes the soil population and maximizes rhizobia numbers.
  • Trident has demonstrated excellent performance under stressful conditions, improving root development, nodule number and mass and enhancing yield with the extra nitrogen provided - click here for performance data.

As a Bio-Inducer, Trident is primed for performance before it ever gets on the seed or in the soil, expressing multiple nodule creating determinants from new, specially selected strains, available for the first time in 2013.
