Pivot Bio’s N-OVATOR™ Program
Replacing synthetic fertilizer with Pivot Bio’s microbial nitrogen delivers an immediate, durable and permanent change to a farm’s economic and environmental profile.
Through our N-OVATOR™ Program, we translate growers’ synthetic nitrogen replacement into the environmental impact they delivered. This impact contributes to our corporate partners’ sustainability goals while generating new revenue for growers.
The N-OVATOR™ 2022 Impact
26 million lbs of N replaced
With PROVEN® 40 and RETURN®, farmers enrolled in the N-OVATOR™ program replaced 26 million pounds of synthetic fertilizer.
78.8 thousand metric tons of CO₂e avoided
Replacing synthetic fertilizer with Pivot Bio microbial fertilizer through the N-OVATOR™ program avoided the release of an additional 78.8 thousand metric tons of CO₂e.
The N-OVATOR™ 2022 Impact
In our pilot year, over 600 U.S. farming operations were rewarded for their synthetic nitrogen reduction through N-OVATOR™, which calculated nitrogen replacement down to each individual field.
723.7 thousand verified acres
Pivot Bio’s N-OVATOR™ program verified nitrogen replacement on 723,700 acres.
Our program measures and rewards impact each year, without the multi-year contracts and burdensome data requirements.
Farmers can be confident in their yield and environmental impact and generate emissions reductions that are immediate and permanent.
Farmers are rewarded for the impact of the synthetic nitrogen replacement each year and generate consistent nitrogen credits every season.
Pivot Bio products work with corn, corn silage, spring wheat, sorghum, and other small grains, integrating seamlessly with existing management practices for easy scalability across millions of acres.
Better Nitrogen, From Nature
Pivot Bio is the recognized leader in nitrogen innovation, realizing the full potential of soil microbes to capture and metabolize nitrogen from the atmosphere. Our technology replaces synthetic fertilizer with a more sustainable, predictable solution that maintains crop yields and on-farm profitability.
N-OVATOR™ Nitrogen Credits
A nitrogen credit is a tradable asset that captures the positive environmental impacts that are delivered when synthetic nitrogen fertilizer is replaced with a non-polluting nitrogen source – such as preservation of water, reductions in nitrate leaching and avoided greenhouse gas emissions. Nitrogen credits are measured in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent avoided, liters of water preserved, and kilos of nitrate leaching prevented.
Verified Carbon Credits may be issued for the greenhouse gas emission reductions associated with crops grown in the continental U.S. as part of the N-OVATOR™ program
