FBSciences’ New CarbonBoost® Line Raises Soil Carbon and Crop Productivity While Mitigating Climate Change | state
MEMPHIS, Tennessee., July 15, 2021 / PRNewswire / – FBSciences, a global leader in organic agricultural products, launches its CarbonBoost® soil health product line, building on 15 years of experience and commercial success in innovation in soil health plants to maximize carbon sequestration, increase soil carbon and improve soil health. As part of FBSciences’ climate-smart agriculture mandate, they are leveraging their in-depth research and expertise on the innate link between soil and plant health to accelerate and amplify climate health benefits while increasing return on investment and producer productivity.
FBSciences’ technologies and organic products have always had secondary benefits for soil health. Soil health is an essential part of climate change adaptation and mitigation, as healthier and richer in biodiversity soils with optimized collections of microorganisms lead to reduced greenhouse gas emissions , increased soil carbon and organic carbon sequestration, improved water and nutrient use efficiency, and increased plant tolerance and recovery from stress. The addition of FBSciences’ CarbonBoost range to their portfolio marks an important step in their climate-smart agriculture strategy, providing the opportunity to mitigate climate change holistically from a both plant health and soil health.
FBSciences ‘CarbonBoost product line includes four new crop-specific microbial products built with FBSciences’ proprietary biostimulation technology, FBS Transit®, which has been shown to consistently deliver increased yields, increased root length, superior uptake of nutrients, abiotic stress alleviation and improved crop quality. The four microbial products include crop specific microbial consortia in the form of spores designed to provide unique benefits optimized for specific large area crops including corn, cotton, soybeans and special crops. FBSciences’ CarbonBoost products are created with high colony forming units (CFUs) that are dormant until activated in the field, for increased efficacy, product purity and shelf life. Combining FBS Transit technology with specific soil improvement consortia amplifies the benefits for growers, with all the benefits of FBS Transit plus the supercharged effect of microbes for exponentially improved plant and soil health benefits beyond those provided by FBS Transit or organic consortia alone. For example, the soy product includes several strains with high CFU content Bradyrhizobia, microbes that work in symbiosis with legumes to accelerate the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in the plant’s root nodules, making it available to the plant and increasing soybean yield and growth.
The CarbonBoost line also includes two soil conditioning products, FBS Humate Plus ™ and FBS Organics Humate Plus ™, which are highly concentrated and effective humic acid products from FBSciences also built with FBS Transit technology. FBS Humate Plus was launched earlier this year with overwhelmingly positive soil health benefits for growers including a 15% increase in water use efficiency over three years compared to standard grower treatment and a 13% increase in root length compared to a traditional humic acid.
“With the unique combination of these specially formulated microbial consortia and the proven performance of FBS Transit technology, FBSciences’ CarbonBoost soil health product line is unprecedented in the market,” said Courtenay Wolfe, President and CEO of FBSciences. “After 15 years of commitment to innovation and plant health impact with our organic technologies and products, we are leveraging our understanding of our FBS Transit technology to extend the climate smart impact of our products while increasing return on investment for producers by focusing on building healthier soils and transforming agriculture through the interconnected relationship between soil, plant and climate health, ”said Wolfe.
FBSciences looks forward to the impact these new products will have on the ground given the well-documented benefits for soil health and the synergistic effects of their technologies with microbial agents. FBSciences is currently conducting global trials on the CarbonBoost soil health product line and will announce the results in fall 2021. FBS Humate Plus is available now and all five new products will be commercially available this fall.
FBSciences is a global leader in the innovation and commercialization of climate-smart organic products for agriculture and turf management. Their exclusive technologies of natural origin are the basis of their product lines of biostimulants, biopesticides and fertilizers. With $ 100 million in commercial success and more than 1500 independent and academic studies over 15 years and across six continents, even under the most difficult growing conditions, FBSciences has proven that their technologies and products increase the quality and density of nutrients, improve the stress relief and recovery, produce healthier plants and higher yields and increase the use of other agricultural inputs. Their sustainable products provide measurable environmental benefits, including a 25% increase in nitrogen use efficiency, leading to N2Reduced O emissions, decreased nitrogen runoff and increased carbon sequestration. With the opportunity to impact significantly on every acre managed, FBSciences is committed to harnessing the power of nature to transform agriculture on a global scale. follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and find out more about www.fbsciences.com.
