Compass Minerals Plant Nutrition, Marrone Bio ink plant health pact


In Kansas, Compass Minerals Plant Nutrition has partnered with Marrone Bio Innovations to develop specialty plant nutrient products enhanced with microorganisms. The goal is to help crops more efficiently take up nutrients to improve health and reduce crop stress.

“From MBI’s collection of 18,000 microorganisms, Compass Minerals Plant Nutrition will leverage its specialty in plant nutrition with a subset of Marrone’s novel microbes to create innovative products to enhance plant health and growth,” the companies say. “The result expected is new value-added products aimed at providing growers with improved plant vigor, higher yields and a better return on investment.”
