Introducing Nutriclaw, One of this Year’s Spud Smart Top Innovations


The potato industry is at an all-time high for innovation. Incredible new technologies and products are being launched across the potato value chain, including this entry from Trinity Bio Chem.

We requested nominations for innovative products leading the Canadian potato industry forward and received excellent submissions from across the industry. With the help of our Editorial Board, we selected winners based on their industry impact, market potential, and scalability. Stay tuned as we highlight these innovations alphabetically over the next few weeks.


Trinity Bio Chem

Launched in Canada

Clumping soils with poor water infiltration are often symptoms of soil magnesium and sodium issues. Both magnesium and sodium not only contribute to soil structure challenges, they also interfere with a plant’s ability to access moisture and nutrients in the rhizosphere.
Nutriclaw, through its humate/amino acid blend, is able to form a complex with these minerals, which ties them up and reduces their ability to interfere with the uptake of moisture and nutrients by the potato plant.

Growers using Nutriclaw experience a number of things: new ease in tillage operations, yield improvements when consistently low production acres begin producing like the rest of the field, reduction in water-logging and quicker re-entry following a moisture event.

Whether it’s dealing with full-field water infiltration, excess salinity, or persistent foxtail and kochia issues, or improving low production areas, this product provides solutions for these issues in the year of application.

“Imagine a humic product that works in the year of application!” says Vanessa Bell, Trinity Bio Chem’s territory manager.

Nutriclaw is a liquid product with high compatibility. This makes it easy to toss into a spray solution alongside another product. Results vary based on the soil’s starting characteristics.

“Let’s make those low-production areas productive again,” says Bell.

This year’s line-up of Top Innovations is a great list! We will be introducing one Winner each week. So far, we’ve introduced:

AL-Bio 7- A&L Biological Inc. – subsidiary of A&L Canada Laboratories Inc.

Vive Crop Protection – AZteroid FC

John Deere – John Deere 8 Series Tractor Electric Power Generation with Spudnik AirSep harvester
