Corteva Agriscience has received organic certification for its nutrient efficiency biostimulant Utrisha N, following the launch in the UK and Ireland this year.
Certification from Organic Farmers and Growers (OF&G) means that Utrisha N can now be used on organic farms in cereals, oilseed rape, peas, beans and grain maize.
Utrisha N is an alternative nitrogen source which adapts to the growing needs of the crop to sustainably maximise crop yield.
Clare Stapley, biostimulants product manager for Corteva UK & Ireland, said: “We are very excited to have been granted organic certification for Utrisha N with Organic Farmers and Growers (OF&G) and to be able to offer organic farmers a product that can deliver a supplemental source of nitrogen.
“Utrisha N is a novel nutrient efficiency biostimulant that enables plants to fix nitrogen from the air and make it available to the plant.
“With the cost of nitrogen soaring, an alternative source is vital and it’s great that we can now offer organic farmers the option to incorporate Utrisha N into their fertiliser plans for next year and produce food using a sustainable product.”
The product is foliar applied with a wide window of application, with rates of 333g per hectare when the crop is growing. It’s available through Hutchinsons.
