Chr. Hansen ATTIS® harvest

Tried and tested

In laboratory tests, ATTIS® bacteria were shown to improve the solubilization of "bound up" phosphorus in 39 out of 40 bacterial strain comparisons – in some cases, by more than 10 times.

Intensive R&D greenhouse and laboratory tests also reveal that ATTIS® bacteria have positive effects on overall plant and root biomass in both normal and drought-stressed crops such as corn.

 
 

Improved phosphorous uptake

ATTIS® has been extensively trialed on corn silage crops in the US where it has consistently shown to increase biomass due to improved nutrient availability, particularly phosphorous. 

Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for the general health and vigor of plants. By enabling photosynthesis, phosphorous facilitates root growth, strengthens stems and stalks improves overall crop quality.

In preliminary field trials undertaken on corn silage*, ATTIS® showed an above-average uptake of phosphorous, which is favorable for consistent growth responses, fine root hair development, and above-ground biomass.


*Based in on results from over 20 field trials conducted with farm co-operators across the US in 2021. 


A truly integrated solution

With livestock probiotics, silage inoculants and now a unique microbial inoculant, we are significantly strengthening our silage portfolio.

ATTIS® is the perfect addition to proven Chr. Hansen silage inoculants in the market such as SILOSOLVE®.

And with Chr. Hansen, you can rest assured you will receive full service from a company that is renowned for its unique microbial platforms.
