Terrasym for Corn

TERRASYM FOR CORN

Terrasym 450

Terrasym from NewLeaf Symbiotics is a new class of agricultural biologicals, using naturally occurring M-trophs. M-trophs live in true symbiosis with crops, delivering benefits throughout the growing season with no energy cost to the plant.

Agriculture biologicals strengthen corn to increase yield and improve nutrient uptake. Terrasym’s corn treatment is available as Terrasym 450, a corn overseed seed treatment.

“My farm is poorly drained and has wet soil, so we chose to use Terrasym 450 to help improve our yields. We’ve collected the last five years worth of yield data. After using Terrasym, we beat it by 10 bushels. But we did make one mistake: We didn’t do the whole thing. We should’ve used both sides of the planter.

How Terrasym 450 Works

Terrasym products contain specially selected beneficial microbes called methylobacterium or pink pigmented facultative methylotrophs (M-trophs). M-trophs establish a natural, permanent partnership with plants. This symbiotic relationship facilitates improved plant development and nutrient uptake, ultimately, making crops stronger, more stable and more tolerant of abiotic stress, from planting through harvest.

STEP 1: M-TROPHS

Terrasym products contain specially selected beneficial microbes called methylobacterium or pink pigmented faculatative methylotrophs (M-trophs). M-trophs establish a natural, permanent partnership with plants. This symbiotic relationship facilitates improved plant development and nutrient uptake, ultimately making crops stronger, more stable and more tolerant of abiotic stress, from planting through harvest.

STEP 2. ROOT ESTABLISHMENT

As broad plant colonizers, M-trophs spread rapidly from the seed surface across a plant’s roots and leaves. They support stand establishment by promoting consistent emergence and larger root systems.

STEP 3. NUTRIENT UPTAKE

M-trophs improve nutrient uptake by populating plant roots and promoting higher numbers of root tips and root nodules, which in turn enhance nutrient acquisition. They also secrete beneficial molecules into the root zone that can bind and transport yield-enabling micronutrients.

STEP 4. METHANOL CONSUMPTION

By consuming methanol – a by-product of plant metabolism – M-trophs colonize at zero energy cost to the plant. This leaves more energy available to the plant for nutrient uptake, resulting in increased chlorophyll content and enhanced photosynthetic efficiency, both of which translate to increases in yield.
