Using Pivot Bio

Product Stewardship

As with any input in your operation, knowing how to use Pivot Bio microbial fertilizer is key to ensuring efficacy and product performance. Our nitrogen-producing microbes work with your crop to deliver nitrogen throughout the growing season. Because microbes are living organisms, it’s important to handle the products as instructed — whether in-furrow or on-seed — and closely follow recommended guidance on delivery, storage and use.

    While requiring much less space, our fertilizers need a temperature-controlled dry storage environment with no exposure to direct sunlight and should remain sealed until planting.

  • Single Application

    Available on-seed or in-furrow, Pivot Bio products work within your existing operation, saving on extra equipment, passes, time and fuel.
