Pivoting Forward with Continued Expansion

Having grown up and lived in southern Illinois my entire life, I’ve had a front-row seat to how rapidly things change in agriculture. Faced with rising pressure on natural resources and a growing population to feed, I know farmers need nitrogen that is reliable, predictable and better for the environment without compromising yield.

Farmers are at the heart of everything we do at Pivot Bio, and our purpose is to create tools that serve you. We have and will continue to deliver on that purpose through the rapid expansion of our U.S. footprint, with new facilities across the Midwest that will double manufacturing capacity and meet the soaring growth in demand for our leading synthetic fertilizer replacement product. In addition, we are growing our research initiative by expanding our partnerships with land-grant universities.

We are invested in your success. To support you throughout the growing season and beyond, we are expanding our capabilities with:

  • A new 48,000-square-foot facility in St. Louis, Missouri, for the development, production and manufacturing of our latest product and agriculture’s first-ever on-seed nitrogen technology, PROVEN® 40 OS and RETURN® OS.
  • A new 110,000-square-foot distribution center in Omaha, Nebraska, that will enable us to deliver climate-smart nitrogen solutions to growers across the Corn Belt region and western U.S. at-scale, faster.
  • A new state-of-the-art facility located in the Iowa State University Research Park in Ames, Iowa, that will open later this year to serve as a Midwest hub for technical expertise, product information and personalized customer support in order to provide you with the solutions you need.
  • Expansions at our first distribution center in Chicago, Illinois.

We have also partnered with 22 universities in 2023, up from 15 in 2022, each working to independently evaluate our products, with results to come over the next several months.

Synthetic fertilizer has, until now, been the primary way for farmers to grow the food the world needs, but it is one of agriculture’s leading contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions and a significant driver of poor water quality, biodiversity loss and air pollution.

Our technology meets the demand for consistent and dependable nitrogen by enabling microbes to adhere and remain on the roots of the plant throughout the growing season, delivering plant-ready nitrogen with nearly 100% efficiency. In FY2023, our product was used on more than 5 million acres — an increase of more than 2 million acres from FY2022. This is why our customers continue to return year after year and expand their treated acres.

We will continue to offer farmers a predictable, productive nitrogen source to sustainably feed cereal crops during critical growth periods. You can be confident that your crops are receiving the nutrition they need while also protecting our natural resources for future generations.
