In-Plant Nitrogen Study

A Proven Nitrogen Advantage

A breakthrough leader in nitrogen innovation, Pivot Bio is committed to supporting healthier, more productive and resilient crops and preventing nitrogen loss to the environment.

Each year, we partner with farmers to collect data to validate the nitrogen advantage delivered by PROVEN® 40. Even in distinct and challenging growing conditions, PROVEN® 40 consistently delivers a nitrogen advantage, validating the predictability of our microbial nitrogen compared to synthetic nitrogen.

Results You Can See

In 2023, despite challenging weather patterns in key regions, PROVEN® 40 consistently demonstrated its efficacy across all corn growing regions, increasing plant nitrogen levels by an average 8% in 2023. When averaged across 2022 and 2023, PROVEN® 40 consistently delivered an 11% advantage over the grower standard practices.

Results You Can See

When compared to grower standard practice, PROVEN® 40 outperforms synthetic nitrogen in biomass, chlorophyll concentration, and in-plant nitrogen. Our microbial nitrogen delivers consistent, predictable results, regardless of application method (in-furrow or on-seed) or growing region. See how PROVEN® 40 compares in the field against synthetic nitrogen.
