The biological nitrogen fixer Utrisha N was the standout launch by Corteva Agriscience at the Bahia Farm Show 2024 – one of Brazil's largest agricultural fairs, attended by AgroPages.

The product is applied foliarly and approved for corn cultivation. It allows the plant to obtain nitrogen throughout its life cycle according to its needs. According to the manufacturer, this is possible through Utrisha N’s ″unprecedented and innovative″ mode of action. 

The bacterium in Utrisha N’s formulation is *Methylobacterium symbioticum*, which can capture nitrogen available in the air and transform it into ammonium for the plant. This process naturally improves the plant's vitality and helps the crop reach its maximum growth and productivity potential. Additionally, Utrisha N is compatible with other solutions ″for even more sustainable management,″ according to Corteva.

At the event, Brazilian farmers could see how the solution works firsthand by scanning a QR code with their cell phones, which led to an immersive experience.

The executive emphasized that Utrisha N’s main differential is the active presence of the bacterium throughout the crop cycle. 

″Inside the leaves, the bacterium in Utrisha N allows for the natural, efficient, and controlled fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, functioning as a complementary tool to nitrogen fertilization,″ she explained.

She said the unique strain of *Methylobacterium symbioticum* enters through the stomata of the leaves and completely colonizes the plant within seven days of application. This bacterium converts the nitrogen available in the air into ammonium nitrogen for the plant, naturally improving its vitality and helping the crop reach its maximum growth and productivity potential.

Another significant differential is that the nitrogen resulting from Utrisha N’s action is not susceptible to everyday occurrences in traditional fertilization processes, such as leaching (nitrogen being washed into the subsoil), volatilization (nutrient loss through evaporation due to temperature), and denitrification (conversion into gaseous state caused by bacteria).

The product is already marketed in European countries besides the United States, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina, and it underwent three years of field testing in Brazil before its launch.
