Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG) reports record levels of carbon sequestered in land treated with a breakthrough line of soil amendments (soil “probiotics”), including Rhizolizer® , which is pulling up to 121% more carbon into the soil than non-treated plots within a year—the largest impact any approach has offered to date. Results from the treatment of almonds, cherries, turf/sod, grapes and citrus across the U.S., as well as impressive preliminary growth data from hardwood reforestation, show a dramatic increase in soil carbon sequestration as well as vastly improved plant productivity. The new data, verified by multiple third parties, comes ahead of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report release this week stressing the importance of addressing agricultural land in the fight against climate change.
Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) announces a partnership with Locus Agricultural Solutions® (Locus AG) to trial a new technology, developed by Locus AG, that is expected to improve capture of soil carbon, reduce applied nitrogen fertilizer needs and improve yield.
