Expands technology access for organic farmers across Canada

Calgary, AB, May 2, 2022 – Corteva Agriscience is pleased to announce that the company’s first nutrient efficiency biostimulant, Utrisha™ N, has received certification from the Organic Materials Review Institute for use in organic farming across Canada.

First launched in November 2021 and available for the 2022 growing season, Utrisha N nutrient efficiency biostimulant is a naturally derived biological tool that works by capturing nitrogen from the air and converting it to a usable form for many Canadian crops. The product enhances plant growth and resilience by providing crops with a constant supply of nitrogen throughout the lifecycle of the plant.

“Utrisha N is a natural bacterium that provides farmers with a sustainable, alternative nitrogen source that reduces dependency on nitrogen uptake from the soil,” says Kirsten Ratzlaff, Product Manager for Seed Applied Technology, Fungicides & Nutrient Management, Corteva Agriscience Canada. “We’re excited to be able to bring this biological solution to organic farmers across the country so that they may more effectively manage their nitrogen investment, reduce their carbon footprint and provide crops access to nitrogen all season long.” Utrisha N helps to maximize crop potential through improved nutrient management. Its mode of action is a naturally found bacteria that can be applied during existing field applications with existing equipment and has an application window that extends beyond the early growing season.

For more information about Utrisha N, we encourage Canadian growers to talk to their Corteva Agriscience representative.
