Novozymes and Anuvia Plant Nutrients join forces to bring sustainable bio-based nutrients to commercial agriculture
RALEIGH, NC and CONSERVATORY, Fla., October 6, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Novozymes, the world’s leading provider of biological solutions, and Anuvia Plant Nutrients, an innovative plant nutrient company, announced today that they have teamed up to develop a range of combined biotechnologies that address the need for synthetic fertilizers in the commercial sector Agriculture will reduce.
The resulting products, which could be available as early as next year, mean that farmers need less synthetic fertilizer per hectare, with the same or better harvesting performance and reduce the environmental impact through lower nutrient losses and greenhouse gas emissions. There are no additional costs for the grower, and no changes to current cultivation methods are required.
“By combining Anuvia sustainable products with Novozymes’ advanced biotechnologies, we are changing the paradigm of plant nutrition by making bio-nutrients a standard tool in commercial agriculture,” says Amy Yoder, CEO of Anuvia Plant Nutrients. “Through this partnership, we aim to double the nutritional value of Anuvia products without adding a single unit of synthetic nutrient or increasing the amount used.”
“Novozymes and Anuvia share a vision to offer farmers innovative and sustainable solutions by using biologics made from naturally occurring materials,” says Thomas Stenfeldt Batchelor‘Novozymes’ Vice President Agricultural Marketing and Strategy. “This partnership will enable the rapid development and use of advanced nutrient technologies to promote sustainable and efficient commercial agriculture for the benefit of farmers, consumers and the environment.”
Partnership sees additional advances in nutrient technology
Novozymes and Anuvia will continue to work together to innovate in future generations of organic fertilizers:
- The companies will work together to identify additional microbes and enzymes that could improve the nutritional efficiency of crops and innovate in relation to nutritional efficiency and crop health.
- In a first step, the partnership will combine the microbial phosphate solubilization solutions from Novozymes with the sustainable bio-based fertilizers from Anuvia to improve macronutrient efficiency with a focus on phosphate.
- The partnership provides for several generations of the new technology. The first generation is expected to add up to 10 units of phosphorus. Subsequent generations will aim to replace additional units of macro and micronutrients such as N, P and K.
