Sigma Agriscience and Heliae offer new fertilizer blends


Houston-based Sigma Agriscience, a manufacturer of granular biofertilizers and biostimulants, will begin offering new performance-based fertilizer blends in partnership with Heliae Agriculture.

According to a news release, the new portfolio of products – both organic and conventional options – will assist with root growth, yield and many other benefits.

“Blending our microalgae technology with Sigma Agriscience’s premium fertilizer products, which include unique biologicals, creates new synergy that nourishes the soil, feeds the existing and new biological population, and makes the fertilizer products function at maximum efficiency,” says Doug Ranno, vice president of sales and marketing at Heliae Agriculture.

Heliae Agriculture’s product PhycoTerra Soil Amendment is a whole cell, pasteurized microalgae that feeds the soil microbiome. When combined with Sigma Agriscience’s premium biological fertilizers, it has demonstrated up to 42 per cent increase on treated shoots as well as improvements in yield.

“This new partnership offers innovative products and solutions to agriculture, nurseries, orchards, turfs and landscape markets,” says Alan Warren, president and CEO of Sigma Agriscience. “This partnership is another step towards bringing ag technology together to create sustainable solutions to bridge the gap and feed a growing population.”
