Abstract

Nitrogen use efficiency is a major factor causing yield variation in corn. Many bacteria or biostimulant products are available that promote increased nitrogen availability and use efficiency in plants. Envita™ is a naturally occurring, food grade bacteria – Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus – marketed by Azotic, originally discovered in sugarcane. It is promoted to form a beneficial relationship with the host plant and provides nitrogen to every cell in the plant, foliage and root system, throughout the growing season. The purpose of these trials was to investigate what effect Envita™ applied foliar has on corn and soybean yields.
