West-central Minnesota hosted the fifth and final stop on the ‘The Future of Fertilizer Tour.’ Anuvia Executive Vice President of Sales Brett Bell says the goal is to deliver more nutrition for the crop, healthier soils and a better environmental outcome. Organic materials are used to develop fertilizer for large-scale agriculture. The organic matter may include livestock manure, wastewater treatment plant materials, distillers grain. “We can use any biological material that can find itself in a landfill,” said Bell. “We can take that, put it through our hydrolysis process and come out with a really nice multi-nutrient fertilizer that not only feeds the crop but it feeds the soil microbiome. Not only is your soil healthier but your crops yield more.” Anuvia’s Symtryx product delivers less leaching and volatilization. “In addition, there’s a lot of talk about the carbon footprint and carbon intensity. Simply swapping out synthetic nutrition with Symtryx on an acre of corn reduces that farmers’ greenhouse gas footprint on an acre about ten percent.” Photos are available on the RRFN Facebook page.
