Pivot Bio’s N-OVATOR™ Program

Rewarding Sustainability

Replacing a portion of traditional fertilizer with Pivot Bio’s microbial nitrogen delivers an immediate, durable and permanent change to a farm’s economic and environmental profile.

Through our N-OVATOR™ program, we translate that replacement into the environmental impact they delivered. This impact contributes to our corporate partners’ sustainability goals while generating new revenue for growers.

For Farmers

Replace a portion of your traditional fertilizer with Pivot Bio and get paid for your environmental stewardship.

For Corporate Partners

Achieve an immediate, permanent change to your Scope 3 emissions profile.

Sustainability that works for farmers and verifiably advances climate commitments.

Better Nitrogen, From Nature

Pivot Bio is the recognized leader in nitrogen innovation, realizing the full potential of soil microbes to capture and metabolize nitrogen from the atmosphere. Our technology replaces a portion of traditional fertilizer with a more sustainable, predictable solution that maintains crop yields and on-farm profitability.

N-OVATOR™ Nitrogen Credits

A nitrogen credit is a tradable asset that captures the positive environmental impacts delivered when traditional nitrogen fertilizer is replaced with a non-polluting nitrogen source — such as water preservation, reductions in nitrate leaching and avoided greenhouse gas emissions. Nitrogen credits are measured in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent avoided, liters of water preserved and kilos of nitrate leaching prevented.

A More Sustainable Future

Pivot Bio is dedicated to supporting farmers with products that optimize crop production through specifically timed and placed nitrogen delivery. Together, we are working toward a future that is more efficient, profitable, predictable, safe and sustainable for farmers and the planet.

A Better Nitrogen

When farmers replace a portion of their traditional nitrogen with Pivot Bio’s more predictable microbial nitrogen, they help preserve our soil, air and water for the next generation of farmers.
