Biovante has released two new additives to its product portfolio. NitroCon and MicroKey (IFC) are both available beginning November 1, 2014. Take a look at the product profiles and contact us for more information on how these two additives can help improve your yields.

NitroCon Profile

NitroCon is a nitrogen management aid. By blending NitroCon with urea-based fertilizers it can enhance their efficiencies. NitroCon more effectively manages the availability of nitrogen when plants need it most.

Did you know:

  • The majority of nitrogen loss occurs immediately after application due to volatilization and leaching.
  • Volatilization occurs when nitrogen comes into contact with moisture and/or urease, a naturally occurring enzyme found in the soil.
  • Nitrogen breaks down and is given off as ammonia gas. As much as 30% of applied nitrogen can be lost within days of application.

NitroCon can help protect your nitrogen investment. Learn more here.

 MicroKey (IFC) Profile

MicroKey (IFC) is a chelated material that is specially designed to treat suspected micronutrient deficiencies in corn. This soluble microgranule product contains secondary nutrients which are vital to the micronutrients involved in corn production. MicroKey (IFC) is most effective when placed in-furrow or in the seed trench at the time of planting.

We all want bigger yields, right? The first step is starting with the seed and familiarizing yourself with a treatment called Pentilex. Pentilex is an environmentally friendly seed treatment that accelerates germination and promotes even emergence under stressful conditions. Read more about Pentilex™ here.

Pentilex has been proven to improve corn yields. Here are results from a dryland and irrigated test from a 2011 test from Renwood Farms in Charles City, VA. These tests illustrate what Pentilex can unlock in both stressed and non-stressed growing conditions.

Dryland Test | +11 bpa | +7.8%

  • Control: 141 Bu/ac
  • Pentilex™ Treated: 152 Bu/ac

Irrigated Test | +22 bpa | +10.3%

  • Control: 213 Bu/ac
  • Pentilex™ Treated: 235 Bu/ac


 Mike Rother from Arapahoe, CO began using Pentilex in 2013. “Last year, when we started running Biovante products…what we saw was amazing. I was astounded by the health difference with the Pentilex product – it made the stocks more girthy. It made the plants taller and more even. It was frankly…a shocking difference.”
