Agnition®, a brand of Ralco, announced today that it has launched OMRI Listed® Generate®, a crop enhancement product to boost soil and plant health for organic production. This is the latest product in an extension of Agnition’s organic line which now includes crop enhancements and hay and silage preservatives. Generate is a natural product that utilizes patented Microbial Catalyst® technology to liberate nutrients in the soil for greater uptake, healthier crops and improved soil and plant health in a wide range of crops.
“Generate could help organic producers take their operation to the next level,” said Rachel Raths, Microbiologist for Agnition. “Organic farming today focuses primarily on animal fertilizers, crop rotation, cover crops, and soil health to naturally grow crops. Generate’s unique ability to stimulate microbial activity in the soil can biologically benefit organic farmers.”
By utilizing natural Microbial Catalyst technology, Generate is able to stimulate existing microbes in the soil by unlocking enzymes that drive more efficient nutrient conversion. The patented chemistry behind Microbial Catalyst works like a key to unlock enzymes and release more nutrients from fertilizers, like manure, that would otherwise remain tied-up in the soil and unavailable to the plant.
“Ultimately, Generate provides more ‘food’ to plants and microbes which fuels the entire system,” said Raths. “By making nutrients more available, Generate improves early plant vigor, crop growth, soil health conditions, and long-term soil health management for farmers.”
Backed by over a decade of research in both greenhouse and commercial settings on a wide range of crops and soil types, Generate is proven to be versatile and effective. Customers worldwide using Generate experience crops with improved emergence, greater root mass, larger biomass, taller plants, improved stress tolerance, increased yields, and improved plant & soil health.
“The patented Microbial Catalyst technology that powers Generate is an evolution of the natural chemistry that founded Ralco almost 50 years ago,” said Brian Knochenmus, President and CEO of Ralco. “My grandfather knew he could stimulate microbes in the rumen for more efficient digestion. I knew we could stimulate microbes in the soil for more efficient growth. I’ve watched Generate change conventional farming and now I’m thrilled to see how OMRI Listed Generate can help organic producers do the same.”
