King of Prussia, PA – UPL AgroSolutions Canada announces that its first biosolutions product in Canada, OHM Biostimulant, has received registration from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
OHM is a highly advanced and highly concentrated liquid form of Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed extract that optimizes nutrient use efficiency for enhanced plant growth and development. Increased plant vigour and yield potential has been documented in a wide variety of crops, including cereals, pulses, canola, corn and horticulture crops.
“On average, Canadian growers spend more than CA$50 million on biostimulants for all crops. UPL is excited to extend OHM as the first product in this important crop health division for Canadian growers,” says Trent McCrea, Country Head, UPL AgroSolutions Canada. “UPL will be conducting additional in-field demonstrations of OHM in field corn, wheat, canola, pulses and a selection of horticulture crops this year. This is the first of many new products in UPL’s biosolutions pipeline for Canada.”
Power of Improved Crop Health
Growers who are looking for alternative ways to boost yield potential will value OHM’s introduction in Canada. This product has been globally proven to optimize plant nutrition utilization, including larger root length and larger leaf size, which ultimately leads to higher yield potential.
“UPL continues to grow its product offerings and choices for Canadian growers,” McCrea adds. “With this introduction, Canadian growers have an entire new classification of crop health solutions to add into their production regimen. Growing nutritious food for consumers worldwide has never been more important.”
With a global R&D footprint, UPL is focused on an integrated approach to provide biosolutions that work for specific crops and situations. UPL’s growing biosolutions portfolio includes biocontrol products, biostimulants and innovative nutrition products. OHM is labeled for a wide range of crops, including canola, field peas, corn, apples, grapes, and berries. See the label for a full list of crops.
