Technology That Works From The Inside Out


From a fertilizer input perspective, nitrogen has the greatest impact on plant biomass. It is a key element growers use to boost yield and plant performance. Unfortunately, nitrogen use efficiency is generally less than 50 percent. Take Off® is a revolutionary nitrogen-management technology that accelerates nutrient acquisition, assimilation and efficiency of nitrogen. Discovered by Los Alamos National Laboratory and developed by Verdesian Life Sciences, Take Off works from inside the plant to improve nitrogen use efficiency, boost crop growth and increase yield. You’ll hear from Kurt Seevers, technical services manager with Verdesian Life Sciences, who will give an overview on Take Off technology and how research shows that when properly applied, Take Off delivers results in a wide variety of crops and a healthier return on investment.

Learn the science behind new Take Off technology and how it works INSIDE the plant.
•             More efficient use of nutrients
•             Faster germination and emergence
•             Stronger, healthier plants
•             Greater yield potential.
