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.

Dear Timac Agro USA members and customers,

The health and well-being of our employees, customers, and communities are the main priorities for Timac Agro USA. With the increasing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in several states where we operate, we want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation closely to guarantee the safety of our teams, partners and clients.

We are working diligently to keep our locations open to deliver products throughout the busy Spring season and our team remains available to serve our customers.

Following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are taking several preventive measures, such as:

  • The suspension of all air travel among employees, as well as other unnecessary business travels;
  • We ask employees to stay home in case they are not feeling well to attend to work. We take care of our members and offer sick pay to our whole team nationwide.
  • We increased cleaning and disinfecting procedures in our offices, retail facilities and industrial plants.

We will continue to follow protocols and guidance from the CDC and other health agencies. We will communicate our community as the situation evolves and in case further actions need to be taken.

We appreciate your business and patience and look forward to continuing to serve you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Alexandre Goullier

Organic Market Keeps Growing Strong

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.

Organic 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.

We are pleased to announce Timac Agro USA’s new Organic product line! Fertiactyl Organic, Physioflore and Nutribalance PK5 and P15 are all OMRI listed. These technologies use a combination of nutrients and ingredients specifically designed to produce optimum results in yields and plant quality in organic crops.

Fertiactyl Organic is a patented liquid formula that produces the same critical early boost as our well-known Fertiactyl line. Among its key benefits are flexible application method and tank mixing compatibility; seaweed extracts and nutrients that help with seed germination and plant stress management; and activated humic and fulvic acids that mobilize nutrients and condition soil.

Both Physioflore and Nutribalance P15 and PK5 are granular fertilizers. Among its key benefits are calcimer in its compositions, which provides labile calcium and helps improve soil structure and feeds the crop. The products also deliver key available nutrients and have the patented Pheoflore Complex, that stimulates soil microbes and increases soil health to improve nutrient availability.

We are looking forward to helping organic growers to Think Different…Farm Better.

TIMAC AGRO USA Launches Reformulated and Enhanced Inoculant Formula

BioSinc® is an inoculant designed to maximize nodulation, create stronger emergence, and improve yield

BioSinc Inoculant

BioSinc products couple Timac Agro’s patented GZA Complex with specific species of nitrogen fixing bacteria. It is designed as a seed treatment and soil amendment combination that maximizes nodulation, improves emergence, and reduces plant stress. BioSinc is available in a liquid, a granulated peat or a high-adhesion peat.

Timac Agro USA has made changes to its BioSinc products to specifically address the needs of soybean, pea, lentil, and chickpea growers. The high-adhesion peat formulations are now designed to have less dust, lighter color, and higher flowability. The granulated peat package sizes have changed in both bag and tote sizes to increase customer convenience and efficiency. Granular peat products also have new use rates and bacteria load. The liquid inoculant seed treatment is now a 2-part product that consists of rhizobia in a bag and the GZA Complex in a bottle. The liquid seed treatment formula has a new concentrated bacterium count and a shelf life of two years.

“At Timac Agro USA we focus our efforts on high-quality, high-performing products with special attention to customer convenience and ease. We prioritize flexibility and optimization in order to meet individual grower needs,” said Alexander Duffy, National Product Manager of Timac Agro USA. “Being able to partner with our customers to innovate and develop solutions that work best for them is how Timac continues to differentiate ourselves and help our growers achieve success.”

Key Features of BioSinc Inoculant

The key new features to consider are the high bacteria load, the GZA complex, and flexible application. The high bacteria load results in improved root nodulation that increases nitrogen fixation. The GZA complex is a soil amendment that helps with establishment and reduces plant stress. The flexible applications on seed, planter box, or in-furrow allows the grower application convenience. The new formulation it is better positioned to meet the unique needs of legume crops in various farming operations.
