CONSEQUENCES OF SYNTHETIC FERTILIZER

Crops Need Nitrogen

Half of our world’s food supply is dependent on synthetic nitrogen fertilizer, yet it has serious environmental impacts. Fertilizer contributes to about 500 ocean dead zones around the globe; decomposes into nitrous oxide which is responsible for about 5 percent of global warming; and prevents the natural ability of soil microbes to produce nitrogen that nourish food crops. Farmers are looking for new tools today that can help them reliably feed their nitrogen-hungry crops in a more environmentally sustainable way.

Why Now
Pivot Bio Research
NATURALLY OCCURRING MICROBES

The Future of Fertilizer

Recognizing current fertilizer practices are unsustainable, we’re solving the toughest problem of all: nitrogen fixation in cereal crops. Through the power of biology, machine learning and computational modeling, we reawaken microbes’ natural ability to convert nitrogen from the air to meet crops’ daily nitrogen needs.

OUR SCIENCE

“The industry has been working to develop self-fertilizing cereal crops like corn, wheat and rice for nearly 50 years. For the first time, Pivot Bio is making this possible.”

- Karsten Temme, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

FIRST IN-FIELD SOLUTION

Transformational Crop Nutrition Tool

Pivot Bio will offer the first in-field solution to biological nitrogen fixation, available to farmers for 2019 planting in select states. Delivered as an in-furrow application, our first-generation product adheres to the plants’ roots and feeds the crop daily without leaching, volatilization or denitrification. Seed treatment options are in the near-term product pipeline.
