Benefits of Acceleron® Bio-enhancers

A successful cropping season begins with a good plan, from crop rotation to fertility and seed inputs for each field. Ultimately, it is about getting your crop off to the best start. You can have perfect planting conditions, but without the right genetics and seed treatment package for that field, you could be missing out on yield potential.

Many seed treatments for corn and soybean contain fungicides, insecticides, and nematicides to help protect your crop from potential spring disease and insect pests. Advancements in bio-enhancers have taken seed treatments to the next level. 

Bio-enhancers bring biological benefits and include a range of active ingredients.  For years, soybean inoculants like Optimize® XC Inoculant and TagTeam® LCO XC Inoculant have contained bio-enhancers to improve efficiency and efficacy of nodulation which help to ensure optimal nitrogen fixation and availability across environments.  

Research has identified additional benefits to crops like corn and cotton with specific bio-enhancers. Bio-enhancers can also increase functional root volume and make nutrients more available to the plant. The benefits vary depending on the bio-enhancer and crop.

Marketed under the BioRise® Corn Offerings, BioRise® 360 ST increases mycorrhizal (beneficial fungi) root colonization that act as root extensions increasing nutrient and moisture availability to the plant.1 BioRise® 2 Corn Offering has an additional benefit with Acceleron® B-300 SAT which helps to improve phosphate availability to the plant.

Every year brings different stressed growing conditions and challenges. Any way you can improve root efficiency and nutrient availability can help mitigate those stresses.

With the Acceleron® portfolio of seed treatments, you get the pest protection you need along with bio-enhancers to help ensure your crop gets off to the best start. Reach out to your local Channel Seedsman today to find out more on the benefits of Acceleron® Bio-enhancers.
