Terrasym for Soybeans

TERRASYM FOR SOYBEANS

Terrasym 401

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.

Terrasym Soybean Product Line

The M-troph that powers Terrasym 401 is selected to benefit soybean production and deliver the opportunity to achieve a better and more sustainable yield at harvest. When used as a seed treatment, or applied in-furrow with rhizobia, growers have seen significant results as a bio-complement to traditional crop protection products.

Terrasym Benefits for Soybeans

Promotes earlier stage root and growth development

Increases yield

Improves nutrient uptake

TERRASYM FOR SOYBEANS

Terrasym 401

NewLeaf is monitoring early season results for its Terrasym Soybeans Trials. Results so far include increases in root mass such as:

+2.5% Stand
+9.6% Total root area
+5.7% Skeleton rooting depth
+5.7% Skeleton rooting width

 

“When I examined the treated and untreated roots, I noticed a lot of finer hairs on the plant that was treated. Around August, I called another farmer and said, ‘Hey, I’ve never seen soybeans filled to the top like this – just this stack full of pods.’ We went in the field, circled out a 30-acre spot, and could see a five to six bushel yield advantage on the Terrasym treated soybeans.”

How Terrasym 401 Works

NewLeaf Symbiotics® proprietary M-troph technology is now available as soybean seed treatment Terrasym® 401 for Soybean. It delivers improved early season root development, resulting in enhanced nutrient uptake through the growing season and higher yields at harvest.

STEP 1: M-TROPHS

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 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.
