Improved growth and stress resistance with reduced environmental impact
Arevo offers specialized fertilizer products and solutions under the Argrow® brand that combine improved growth and stress resistance with reduced environmental impact and simplified cultivation. With a foundation in high impact basic research addressing aspects of plant nutrition related to nitrogen uptake and assimilation, all benefits are verified with well replicated and repeatable trials.
We have expanded our fundamental understanding of plant nutrition. We now know that amino acids are a rich source of nitrogen and available for direct uptake by plants. The nutritional diet of plants, therefore, is not restricted to mineral nitrogen forms of nitrate and ammonium. We have developed specialized liquid and granular controlled-release fertilizer products that deliver nitrogen in the form of selected amino acids that promote root development and beneficial mycorrhizal fungi.
By selecting amino acids that are positively charged the nutrition binds to the negatively charged exchange sites in the soil. Nitrogen leaching is reduced and the environmental risk of eutrophication is minimised. Further, a stable level of available nitrogen is created which simplifies application regimes and leads to healthy, stress-free plants.

Today our Argrow® technologies have been successfully adopted for the production of forest tree seedlings in nurseries, in forest establishment via an innovative co-application method at planting, and on performance turf such as golf courses. We aim to broaden the scope of species and plant production industries for Argrow® by identifying speciality applications that create large benefits for the grower with precision. For each new application we seek to test and verify the benefits through independent trials.
