“Yield data has shown a seven percent advantage of PhosForce treated seed in medium to high production environments over untreated seed,” said Terry Culp, vice president of Seed Enhancements and Nutrients for Precision Laboratories.
Precision Laboratories also has research to show that PhosForce works in a variety of soil conditions to consistently increase – on average 25 percent – root mass for improved nutrient uptake. Additionally, research indicates an eight percent increase in plant tillering.
Previously sold under the Enrich product name, PhosForce is a specific strain of Pseudomonas that has a significant need for phosphorous, causing it to produce an organic acid to solubilize inorganic phosphate and generate an enzyme to enhance organic phosphate availability. As a result, a sub-soil environment is created that produces increased levels of phosphorous in the soil solution available for plant utilization.
“PhosForce employs a biological solution to the challenge growers face to generate the maximum return from soil applied phosphate fertilizer, and to get full utilization of organic phosphate from plant residues. Our goal is to employ the techniques used in nature for plant health and growth promotion for commercial agriculture,” added Culp.
“The tag line ‘Natural Nutrition’ was chosen to define exactly what the product is and how it works,” said Richard Wolner, president of Precision Laboratories. “PhosForce is a product innovation designed to help growers and retailers increase their value and lower their risk through the use of technologies that deliver performance while remaining stewards of the environment.”
