Max Armstrong talks about a study completed by Pivot Bio’s N-OVATOR program where farmers reduced their use of synthetic nitrogen and instead used Pivot Bio PROVEN 40. On average, growers replaced 36 pounds of synthetic fertilizer per acre and maintained yield. Pilot participants signed affidavits verifying synthetic nitrogen was replaced on 725,000 acres, resulting in the avoidance of more than 80,000 MT of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). This is roughly equivalent to the annual electricity use for 15,500 homes. In total, N-OVATOR™ participants replaced nearly 12,000 tons of synthetic fertilizer, the largest reduction of its kind ever recorded.
