Nitrogen for Wheat

Pivot Bio RETURN®

Wheat is highly dependent on nitrogen fertilizers to thrive, despite advances in plant breeding. With RETURN®, farmers planting spring or winter wheat can reduce their reliance on synthetic fertilizer and supply more predictable, productive nutrition at the root when the crop needs it most, regardless of soil type or weather.

What Farmers Have to Say

    Nitrogen is extremely important to a wheat crop, but the issue with it, especially in our northern climate, is application of that nitrogen is extremely difficult and we lose more than we really utilize within that crop. RETURN® helps me sleep at night knowing that the nitrogen that we're putting out there is going to stay in the soil no matter if we get a huge rainstorm or stay dry all year.

    Instead of hauling tons and tons and tons of commercial fertilizer, we can use considerably less product on the whole farm. It speeds up our seeding operation and it’s a lot easier for me. Less expense, more profit. That's what we're after.

    I'm using Pivot Bio RETURN® because I want a product that utilizes the soil and the environment to produce nitrogen naturally, so that I don't have to add commercial fertilizers.

Pivot Bio’s NLIGHTEN® in-furrow tank system mounts on your existing planter to deliver the precise amount of microbial nitrogen, right at the root, on every acre. Through the NLIGHTEN® equipment reimbursement program, farmers can offset the cost of in-furrow equipment when they use PROVEN® 40 or RETURN®, making it easier to replace synthetic nitrogen with our more predictable and sustainable crop nutrition.
