Houston-based Sigma Agriscience, a manufacturer of granular biofertilizers and biostimulants, has announced it will begin offering new performance-based fertilizer blends in partnership with Heliae® Agriculture.
"We are very impressed with Heliae® Agriculture," said Alan Warren, president and CEO of Sigma Agriscience. "We can't ignore the obvious, the data we are seeing is remarkable and very convincing. We value this opportunity; this partnership is another step towards bringing Ag technology together to create sustainable solutions to bridge the gap and feed a growing population.
"Blending our microalgae technology with Sigma Agriscience's premium fertilizer products which include unique biologicals creates new synergy that nourishes the soil, feeds the existing and new biological population, and makes the fertilizer products function at maximum efficiency," said Doug Ranno, vice president of sales and marketing at Heliae® Agriculture.
Heliae® Agriculture's product PhycoTerra® Soil Amendment is a whole cell, pasteurised microalgae that feeds the soil microbiome. When combined with Sigma Agriscience's premium biological fertilizers, it has demonstrated up to 42% increase on treated shoots.
Josh Long, vice president of sales and procurement at American Plant Food stated, "We are broadening the scope at which we view soil fertility and opening our eyes to a new world of mediums that rejuvenate tired soils, allowing American growers to achieve lasting and profitable returns on their farms. Heliae PhycoTerra® is an exemplary product that will work in unison with several of our synthetic and organic product offerings, ultimately increasing the efficiencies of these products while still providing a cost-effective offering."
"This new partnership offers innovative products and solutions to agriculture, nurseries, orchards, turfs, and landscape markets," Ranno said. "Combining our products with Sigma Agriscience and American Plant Food products will build strong value for customers worldwide."
