• • • Pivot Bio to Test Nitrogen-Producing Microbes Across Corn Belt
Pivot Bio’s ON Technology addresses this issue by using naturally-occurring microbes to deliver nitrogen in a timely and efficient manner, which results in more productive and predictable crop yields without nutrient degradation, leaching, or toxic runoff into waterways.
Based in Silicon Valley, Pivot Bio is working with IN10T, an agronomic field research company, to launch and manage the testing. Through IN10T’s FarmerTrials program, Pivot Bio will gather field data and evaluate the overall experience and expected outcomes from farmers using its nitrogen-producing microbes.
Testing will kick off this spring as planting gets underway. In-season evaluations will take place throughout the growing season, and data will be collected during harvest. A final report will be done by the end of the 2018.
