ABM® Announces the iGET™ Technology package
Induced Gene Expression Triggers Technology, now formulated into several new products from ABM®. These products provide multifunctional and crop specific blends of beneficial strains of Trichoderma microbials – based on more than three decades of research at Cornell University and other international biological research programs. Their development is the latest result of screening more than 1,000 organisms from worldwide microbial libraries and selection/discovery programs, followed by hundreds of independent field trials around the world.
How does iGET™ Technology work?
The proprietary and patented biologicals first colonize the crop root system. Their association with the plant induces gene expression and changes in plant physiology to enhance multiple biochemical pathways. Crop stresses such as dry weather can be alleviated, and often systemically – so that root colonization by the seed treatment can affect the physiology of the whole plant, even foliar/leaf biology.
ABM® now offers several products for corn, wheat, soybeans, peanuts, cotton, rice, alfalfa/clover, dry beans, and vegetables that can:
- Create bigger root systems and plant growth
- Increase yields
- Increase fertilizer and water use efficiency
