Lyra offers 3-in-1 nutrient management and biostimulant for specialty crops

Cary, North Carolina-based Verdesian Life Sciences has introduced Lyra, a premium nutrient management tool for fertigated specialty crops.

According to a news release, Lyra offers a patent-pending combination of Verdesian’s co-polymer technology for season long nutrient stability and availability, including reduced nitrate leaching, PLUS technology for enhanced plant growth and flora production, and Take Off technology for improved nutrient uptake and utilization. This combination of technologies enhances abiotic stress tolerance and optimizes fruit set, quality, and yield.

“Lyra is a unique tool in the market that combines three technologies into one, designed to improve nutrient availability and utilization and to help with nitrate stewardship. Applied in conjunction with and proportional to seasonal Nitrogen needs, Lyra has shown very strong performance in the field in a variety of crops, and we are excited to showcase this new product to growers this season,” said Tyrus Oakes, Verdesian’s product marketing director.

Trial results (below) from 2019-2020 across six states and 10 different crops showed higher yields and better fruit quality compared to the grower standard practice, giving the grower a strong return on their investment.

Verdesian Life Sciences enables a sustainable future for farmers through nutrient use efficiency. Grown from the ground up in 2012, Verdesian Life Sciences offers farmers and growers biological, nutritional, seed treatment and inoculant technologies that maximize performance on high-value row crops and specialty crops as well as turf and ornamental plants.

As a 4R Nutrient Stewardship Partner, Verdesian is committed to researching and developing environmentally- and financially-sustainable products. Further information about Verdesian is available here.
