    Biodyne USA’s Microbial Technology Launches in Canada


    The following piece is from our sister publication, the Alberta Seed Guide.

    CanGrow Crop Solutions will be distributing Biodyne USA’s microbial technology to growers in the Canadian agricultural market, a Jan. 30 news release said.

    “After two years of extensive field and farm trials, we saw proof that Biodyne products can support grower needs to reduce commercial inputs, manage residues, maximize yield and increase return on investment,” Shawn Brenneman, director of commercial growth and strategy for CanGrow, said in the release.

    The release noted Biodyne products are comprised of complementary bacteria and fungi that help release macro and micro-nutrients as well as provide root stimulation and stress- reducing factors. In 2023, CanGrow will launch four Biodyne microorganism-based products in Canada. The products will be available in organic certified versions as well.

    The products include:

    • ReSTore — a seed-applied biological team that promotes quicker germination, more robust root mass and increased early-season plant vigour.
    • ReNew — a diverse microorganism team that ensures soil and plants efficiently work together to maximize growth and productivity. ReNew provides plant enhancement capabilities including vitamin and hormone production, nutrient releasers, and stress reducers. This product is applied in-furrow with water or fertilizers in any crop.
    • UnLeash — a microbial biostimulant, residue manager and degrader all in one. This is applied to the soil surface and can be mixed with herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers.
    • MeltDown — a complete tool for managing crop residue. This product supports enhanced soil bed and planting conditions, less wear or damage to equipment, and re-cycling of nutrients tied up within residue. MeltDown is applied to residue fall or spring, and is an excellent option for corn, wheat and cover crop stubble or residues.

    All of these can be used in any crop and can be easily incorporated into a grower’s existing management program, the release said.
