In the Field

Terrasym: The power of beneficial microbes, all season long. 

We believe that by harnessing the power of naturally beneficial microbes, we are helping growers make agriculture more sustainable by delivering more sustainable products. That’s the promise of Terrasym – Better together.

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

The science behind Terrasym.

Our science is powered by our bioinformatics platform, Prescriptive Biologics™ Knowledgebase (PBK), which helps us select and align Terrasym to a particular crop and environment. This customizability and speed with which we can deliver innovative “new edge” products are exclusive to Terrasym, and we believe the true secrets to its effectiveness.

Terrasym advantages:

  • Works as bio-complement, so Terrasym can be used alone or in combination with conventional agriculture products, traits and practices
  • Enhances nutrient uptake
  • Increases root mass
  • Enables more robust plants
  • Helps deliver better yield
  • Supports a more sustainable agriculture system

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.
