BiOWiSH Crop Liquid Earns Regulatory Approval In Canada

Cincinnati, OH (BUSINESS WIRE) - BiOWiSH Technologies, Inc. announces that BiOWiSH® Crop Liquid has received regulatory approval by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for sale and use in agriculture production. In conjunction with this CFIA certification, ADM is now offering BiOWiSH® Enhanced Fertilizer at five new terminal locations across the U.S. and Canada, and four more locations will be added later in the year.

"Earning CFIA approval is a testament to our innovative, natural and non-GMO technology, which helps farmers improve crop production in a sustainable way,” said BiOWiSH Chief Innovation Officer Bill Diederich. “Partnering with an industry leader like ADM allows us to work together to advance productivity and climate-smart practices in a way that is practical for farmers to implement.”

The BiOWiSH® Fertilizer Enhancement is a blend of proprietary microbial cultures coated onto dry fertilizer or mixed with liquid fertilizer to create an enhanced efficiency fertilizer. It is applied directly by the fertilizer supplier, and it arrives on-farm, ready to use.

Available through ADM, the BiOWiSH® Fertilizer Enhancement can be added to Urea, Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP), Diammonium Phosphate (DAP), UAN, NPK blends, and more. It works by creating a high-performance partnership between the plant and soil microbes, which results in optimized yield potential by improved nutrient uptake.

It is proven to achieve consistent desired results across a broad range of operating conditions, climates, and environments – all at a low cost to farmers. Meta-analysis of profit change results for replicated cereal grain studies of the BiOWiSH® Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer, compared to Control treatments, modeled profit changes of $50 per acre for wheat and $58 per acre for corn using USA 5-year (2018-2023) commodity value ranges ($/bu). Paired with the ADM re:generations program, which rewards farmers for climate-smart practices, wheat and corn growers have the potential to earn an additional $2 per acre.

“BiOWiSH is an industry leader with a strong track record of helping farmers achieve success globally,” said ADM Director of Biologicals and New Technology Graig Whitehead. “With our extensive years of agricultural product expertise and expansion to more ADM locations, BiOWiSH and ADM are poised to help farmers across Canada and the U.S. optimize yield potential and profits.”
