Climate change is threatening the yields of the world’s major crops, including maize, tomatoes, and wheat. The Earth’s average temperature has risen by more than one degree Celsius over the past century, and agriculture has been affected by unprecedented extremes of weather, with land-based temperature increases being the most severe.

In response to farmer demand for solutions to improve crop resilience and nutrient use efficiency, Yara launched the new YaraAmplix biostimulant brand at the Biostimulant Conference in Milan, Italy yesterday.

Svein Tore Holsether, CEO of Yara, said: “Droughts, floods, and frosts are extreme weather events that are damaging crops around the world. Biostimulants help make crops stronger and more resilient to climate change-induced stress. Farmers are on the front line of preventing food supply shortages. We’re providing solutions to their demand so they can grow successfully in unfavorable environments. ”

Over the past 5 years, Yara has developed a comprehensive portfolio of biostimulants, each based on a unique formulation that improves plant metabolism and growth. Since 2018, the compound annual growth rate of this portfolio has averaged more than 50 percent.

These products become part of the new branded range YaraAmplix, with several new products joining the range in 2024. The portfolio is primarily made from natural ingredients such as seaweed and plant extracts that provide targeted effects such as increased resistance to abiotic stresses and improved nutrient utilization efficiency, yield, and quality. YaraAmplix is a key product in regenerative agriculture solutions that address climate, soil health, resource utilization, biodiversity, and farmers’ incomes.

With more than 100 years of expertise in crop nutrition, Yara continues to increase its investment in R&D to develop innovative formulations. These formulations are designed to be used on different crops in different regions and to address specific challenges. yaraAmplix further completes Yara’s fertilizer portfolio to provide comprehensive crop nutrition solutions.

Yara’s vision is to cultivate a naturally better food future, and the company is conducting scientific research and independent trials of biostimulants in all regions to assess and validate their effectiveness across a wide range of conditions and crops. 359 data points from 2018 to 2020 show an average yield increase of 7.5 percent and a 74 percent margin of victory compared to control treatments.

Rejane Souza, the company’s senior vice president of global innovation, said: “Biostimulants, as an essential part of the solution, contribute to food loss due to climate stress while improving nutrient utilization efficiency, which is critical for farmers to remain profitable and sustainable. The launch of YaraAmplix further underlines our focus on regenerative agriculture, which is why we intend to take the lead in biostimulants in the future. ”

Yara Amplix will be launched in China, Brazil, and France by the end of 2023, with a gradual roll-out to the rest of the world in 2024.
