Terrasym for Soybeans

TERRASYM FOR SOYBEANS

Terrasym 401 and Terrasym 409 for Soybeans

Terrasym microbial inoculants from NewLeaf Symbiotics is a new class of agbiologicals, using naturally occurring PPFMs that live in true symbiosis with the intended crops, to deliver benefits throughout the growing season at no energy cost to the plant. 

Terrasym products for soybeans improve nutrient uptake to strengthen soybean crops throughout the growing season and increase yield at harvest. NewLeaf Symbiotics has two commercially available microbial inoculant soybean products for planter box application or as a seed treatment:

    • Terrasym 401: Our flagship soybean product containing Methylobacterium hispanicum
    • Terrasym 409*:  Our next gen soybean product containing Methylobacterium radiotolerans, provides unique benefits to soybean crops
      *Pending state registration approvals

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

Terrasym 401 for Soybeans

The unique PPFM strain that powers Terrasym 401, Methylobacterium hispanicum, 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.

+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.”

How Terrasym for Soybeans Works

 Terrasym 401 and 409 for Soybeans deliver enhanced nutrient uptake, resulting in improved early season root development, further  increasing nutrient uptake through the growing season and higher yields at harvest.

STEP 1: PPFMS

Terrasym products contain specially selected beneficial microbes called Methylobacterium or pink pigmented facultative methylotrophs (PPFMs) establish a natural, permanent partnership with plants. This symbiotic relationship facilitates improved 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, these strains of 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

These specially selected strains of 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 – these PPFMs colonize at zero energy cost to the plant. This leaves more energy available for nutrient uptake, resulting in increased chlorophyll content and enhanced photosynthetic efficiency, both of which translate to increases in yield.
