DPH Biologicals launches microbial nutrient enhancer to cover bulk dry fertilizers

June 13, 2024

DPH Biologicals, a developer and supplier of agricultural biologicals, has launched Envelix Prime, a patented, biological nutrient enhancer designed to uniformly cover bulk dry fertilizer, delivering a biological consortium paired with fertilizer in a single application.

According to Mick Messman, DPH Bio president and CEO, Envelix Prime enables retailers and growers to unlock the value of biologicals on a broader scale. “Just one pound of Envelix Prime evenly covers a ton of dry fertilizer, giving retailers a way to differentiate their fertilizer blends with biology while giving growers a single-purchase, single application route to enhanced performance and an increased return on their fertilizer investment.”

Envelix Prime contains naturally occurring beneficial bacterial and fungal microorganisms the company says are designed to accelerate and maximize fertility release using a patented carrier to adhere microorganisms to the fertilizer prill. In a tissue sample taken from a 2023 corn trial at the V3 leaf stage, Envelix Prime increased nutrient uptake of several macro and micronutrients when applied to MESZ fertilizer, including an 18 percent increase in phosphorus, a 10 percent increase in sulphur, a nine percent increase in boron, and an eight percent increase in copper.

Envelix Prime is DPH Bio’s first product to be powered by Prime, a patented spore priming technology that germinates beneficial bacteria faster, and in harsher conditions, enabling more consistent biological performance. DPH Bio said that in a recent corn trial, Prime enabled more than 70 percent of spores to germinate at temperatures as high as 98.6 degrees, while those without Prime germinated less than 10 percent. Additionally, nearly all spores with Prime germinated in high salt environments, while those that were not treated with Prime did not germinate.

Envelix Prime mixes seamlessly with MAP, DAP and urea, and is available now to retail partners and fertilizer blending facilities.
