Groundwork BioAg and NovaTero Expand Mycorrhizal Bio-Platform for Brazil

Increased Mycorrhizae Concentration Improves Yield, Defends Against Drought

Mazor, Israel and Joinville, Brazil – February 8, 2022 – Groundwork BioAg and its exclusive Brazilian distribution partner, NovaTero BioAg, announced a new product offering for Brazilian farmers this growing season – Rootella  BR ULTRA – which expands the reach to in-furrow and seed treatment application methods in soybean, corn and other cereals.

Rootella BR ULTRA is the highest concentrated mycorrhizal inoculant in the market, containing 167,000 viable propagules per gram of Rhizophagus intraradices, with an application rate of as low as 15 grams per hectare.

“As part of our strategy to expand our mycorrhizal bio-platform, we continue to set the standard for concentration of cost-effective, commercial scale mycorrhizae,” said Dr. Yossi Kofman, Co-Founder and CEO of Groundwork BioAg. “As the impact of climate change continues around the world, we are committed to help increase the productivity of major crops – like those in key breadbaskets such as Brazil. As the ‘queen of biologicals,’ mycorrhiza offers the strongest natural defense against chronic drought while reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers.”

After being granted the only definitive commercial registration in Brazil, the companies’ exclusive partnership has accelerated innovation to meet demand of the rapidly growing Brazilian market, where the biologicals market is projected to show a double digit CAGR in the coming years. The Rootella BR portfolio includes two of the most concentrated formulations of mycorrhizae on the market today.
