SOURCE

Wake up your soil with SOURCE. It works with the microbes you’ve already got in your soil, and the equipment you already use, to give crops access to more nitrogen and phosphorus. Get more from your fields with SOURCE.

It’s like caffeine for microbes.

The science

Improving nutrient use efficiency through biochemistry

Plants and microbes behave symbiotically – microbes provide plants with N&P and in exchange the plant feeds the microbes.

SOURCE mimics a signal that attracts microbes to plants. More microbes means more opportunity for nutrient exchange.

Plants create exudates to feed microbes in natural systems. However, synthetic nitrogen weakens that connection and plants are not able to access the nutrients they need.

SOURCE helps restore the natural connection between plant and microbe again. In doing so plants are able to access the nutrients they need when they need it.

Microbes produce enzymes that transform phosphorus into a form that is digestible by plants.

SOURCE replicates that chemical signal, causing the microbes to increase activity and deliver more digestible phosphorus to the root mass.

The competitors are just giving you nitrogen. SOURCE gives you nitrogen and phosphorus. Our tissue tests showed a broad spectrum increase in nutrients. It pays. That’s why we use it.”
