Terrasym for Soybeans

TERRASYM FOR SOYBEANS

Terrasym 401 and Terrasym 409 for Soybeans

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

Terrasym technology for soybeans improves nutrient uptake to strengthen corn throughout the growing season and increase yield at harvest. Terrasym has two commercially available microbial inoculant soybean products:

    • Terrasym 401: Our flagship soybean product available as a seed treatment and planter box application
    • Terrasym 409: A next gen soybean product newly available in 2022 as a seed treatment and planter box application*
      *Pending state registration approvals

The PPFMs that powers Terrasym for soybean products are selected to benefit soybean production and deliver the opportunity, through increased nutrient uptake, to achieve a better and more sustainable yield at harvest. When used as a seed treatment, or applied via planter box alongside s seed lubricant, growers have seen significant results as a bio-complement to traditional crop protection products.

Terrasym for Soybeans is now available to farmers through online purchase. Visit our e-commerce shop to learn more about each product and put in your order for the 2022 growing season.

Terrasym Soybean Product Line

Terrasym 401 for Soybeans

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 401 for Soybeans

*Statistically significant at >95%+ Confidence p < 0.0001
UTC = Untreated Check
UTC and Terrasym 401 have base fungicide and insecticide

Improved nutrient uptake enables enhanced emergence, vigor and nutrient acquisition, which translates to enhanced plant growth throughout the growing season, resulting in higher yield and crop quality at harvest.

The improved nutrient uptake benefits of Terrasym for soybeans resulted in the following results in third party trials:

Terrasym 401

+2.9% Total root area

+5.6% Rooting depth

+2.4% Root tips

Terrasym 409

+12.4% Total root area

+10.3% Rooting depth

+7.8% Root tips

+20.7% Leaf tissue iron concentrations (ppm)

Source: 2020 IN10T FarmerTrials; Root trends reported for Terrasym 401 as a seed treatment (V2-V4, 16 locations, 10 plants per treatment, per location) yield aggregate reported for 15 locations, 2021 AIP Trials; Root trends reported for Terrasym 401 as a planter box application (V2-V6, 15 locations, n = 20 plants per treatment, per location); Nutrient data reported for Terrasym 409 (V5-V6, 19 locations, 10 plants per treatment per location)

“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.”

STEP 1: PPFMS

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

STEP 2: ROOT ESTABLISHMENT

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

STEP 3: NUTRIENT UPTAKE

PPFMs improve nutrient uptake. 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 – PPFMs 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.
