Increase phosphate availability to support early vigor

JumpStart® technology contains the naturally occurring soil fungus Penicillium bilaiae. It grows along plant roots releasing nutrients like phosphate bound in the soil, making them more available for the crop to use. Penicillium bilaiae does not replace the need for phosphate fertilizer, but does provide crops access to more nutrients for higher yield potential.

Improved phosphate availability:

  • Enhances early vigor
  • Bolsters root and shoot growth, supporting greater stress tolerance and earlier, more uniform plant development
  • Improves yield potential

Please note, Penicillium bilaiae does not replace the need for phosphate fertilizer.

The Benefits of Using JumpStart

 
Improved phosphate availability. See why maximizing nutrient availability is critical.
 
Improved plant nutrition enables plants to better handle environmental pressures.
 
Active in cool soil temperatures when phosphate is less available, which can help get the crop off to an early start.
 

How It Works

Freeing Phosphate

Penicillium bilaiae release bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate, making it more readily available for the plant to use.
