In the following pages, you'll find much of the latest technology in growth promotion for potatoes. Always read and follow label instructions.

The company has introduced four new dry formulations of its Rhizolizer and Pantego solutions, featuring strategically selected strains that target specific crops. The customized approach unlocks nutrients already present in the soil. The new soil technologies utilize the unique mechanisms of action of the current Rhizolizer Duo and Pantego formulations, which have been globally recognized by agriculture experts for unmatched benefits ranging from superior nitrogen use efficiency and supercharged carbon sequestration to better phosphorus solubilization. Locus AG's specialized microbial strains produce unique biosurfactants, enzymes and metabolites that work synergistically to supercharge their impact on soil health, root health, nutrient uptake and crop productivity. UPL North America • (610) 491-2800 • www.upl-ltd.com Zeba Soil Conditioner Zeba is an innovation that helps plants produce more by holding water and nutrients in the root zone and releasing them to plants throughout the growing season. Zeba is a natural, starch-based water absorbent. It absorbs up to 400 times its weight in water, forming hydrogels around the roots in the rhizosphere. Zeba's activity in the soil reduces irrigation inconsistencies; increases water and nutrient availability; improves overall soil conditioning properties; supports soil microbes; and ultimately results in reduced plant stress.
