Timac Agro’s Duo Maxx is the world’s first NPK stabilizer with a Microbial Activator. The product is a combination of our patented phenolic binding compound, MPPA, nitrogen stabilizer, and our patented Duo Complex. The formulation ensures maximum below-ground protection against nutrient loss.

Duo Maxx is intended for treatment of incorporated liquid and granular fertilizer blends with N but can also be used on surface-applied P and K. The technology impacts how nutrients interact with both the soil and the plant. Duo Maxx has:

    • MPPA – a large carbon-source/humate that, through our patented activation process, can help “hold” both cations and anions in order to reduce nutrient tie-up and leaching issues in the soil.
    • XCK1750 – a naturally occurring plant extract that works as a microbial activator to improve nutrient uptake for the plant.
    • LCN Complex – NPBT (urease inhibitor) and DCD (nitrification inhibitor) to help combat nitrogen loss.

Documented Research

Research done by numerous teams of scientists in various field and laboratory settings has consistently shown the positive effects of Duo Maxx when compared to untreated fertilizer or treated with other products that claim to be similar. See below some of this evidence.

Effect of Duo Maxx on Nitrate Leaching

Source: CMI – Roullier R&D, St, Malo, FR, 2017.

Duo Maxx reduced nitrate leaching in soil columns. Data presented are the average nitrate levels of three replicate columns that received 0.6” of simulated rain at each time point. Leachate samples were then collected and analyzed for nitrate.

Effect of Duo Maxx on soluble phosphorus

Source: University of Navarra, Spain, and Inobos Labs, 1994.

Duo Maxx maintained soluble phosphorus in conditions of aggressive retrograde tie-up (calcareous soil with pH of 7.9). Data presented are the average of 3 soil x fertilizer replicates.

National Average on Corn Yields

National Average on all university and contract research: +8 bu/ac

 

Duo Maxx In-Furrow & 2×2 Liquid Fertilizer Research in Corn

One of the main features of Duo Maxx is its versatility. It can be applied with different starters in different ways and still achieve great results, giving the grower the flexibility he needs to make the best choices for his crop.

 

Enhanced nutrient uptake

Duo Maxx helps enhance nutrient uptake to generate fuller, more vigorous plants. The graphs above compile the averages of 9 replicate samples of bermudagrass taken over 45 days. Fertilizer was a blend of AMS, UAN, and urea applied at a rate of 1 lb N/1000 ft².

 

Impressive Results in the Field

In addition to the impressive results in the lab, Duo Maxx shows visual results in the field. On several side by side trials, it is possible to see clear differences and appreciate the effects the technology produces on roots and plants.

This season the University of Wisconsin is working on a potato research trial plot where Duo Maxx was added to the nitrogen application. The visual results can be seen on the roots and also on the plant’s vigor.

Similar results were seen on a side by side collected in a field in Pennsylvania. A bigger root system allows for better nutrient uptake, which results in improved canopy development.

On corn, Duo Maxx also shows consistent results, with increased root development. Here’s another impressive side by side that shows the value of this technology.

When fruits and vegetables start to produce flowers and setting fruit, it is a critical time for calcium management, as it plays a key role in producing high quality fruit. Calcium dramatically effects cell division, cell elongation, and strengthening of cell wall membranes. Not only the foundation of quality vegetable production, calcium deficiency in the fruit causes a disorder called Blossom End Rot (BER).

On this Facts From the Field, we present a solution to avoid calcium deficiency on fruits ad vegetable crops.

The US organic market grew by 6.3% in 2018, surpassing the 50-billion-dollar mark. The organic market is largely driven by consumer demand pushing for transparency and integrity in the food supply chain.  Reaching this level means it is no longer a niche market, it is considered mainstream, and companies will need to adapt to and comply with standards that the customer demands.

Still, the stalwart of the organic industry, sales of organic fruits and vegetables rose to $17.4 billion in 2018 for a 5.6 percent rate of growth, on par with the growth attained in 2017. By comparison, the overall fruits and vegetable category, including both organic and conventional products, grew by just 1.7 percent in 2018.

Fruits and vegetables now account for 36.3 percent of all organic food sales. Organic fruits and vegetable make up close to 15 percent (14.6 percent) of all the produce sold in the U.S. and have nearly doubled their market share in the last ten years.

Produce is a gateway to organic for consumers, especially Millennials and those with young families. Industry experts note that the more people learn about health and wellness, the more people buy fresh produce.

Production is following the demand

With the growing customer demand and the more products to support organic farmers, there is now 4 million acres of organic farmland in the USA, that is up 6% over 2014. While it may not be shocking that hotbeds of consumer demand for organic food such as California and New York are among the leading states in the total acreage of organic farmland—with 688,000 acres, California is No. 1—Montana, Wisconsin, and North Dakota rounding out the top five is something of a surprise. Montana’s 30 percent increase of 100,000 acres of organic acreage since 2014 bumps it into the No. 2 spot, while North Dakota’s increase of more than 40,000 acres pushes it past Oregon, which now ranks sixth. Colorado and Texas round out the top eight.
