LPC Naturals Proprietary Seed Inoculant Products, SPE-120 and SBb2.5, Widely Reported to Increase Yields, Quality, and Resistance to Disease
Lackawanna Products Corporation (LPC), a privately-owned commodity trading company diversified in marketing agricultural commodities throughout the United States and Canada has established LPC Naturals to promote, distribute, and expand their successful range of seed treatments. The seed treatments contain a proprietary strain of the symbiotic fungus Beauveria bassiana and the natural symbiotic partnership elevates the plants ability to resist pathogens and seasonal stressors.
The natural occurrence in crop plants of the beneficial symbiotic fungus Beauveria bassiana has been significantly depressed by modern farm practices and LPC Naturals proprietary products help to put it back and improve crop plants in a safe and sustainable way. The initial products, SPE-120 and SBb2.5, are currently being used by farmers throughout the United States and Canada and have been well documented to increase yields and quality of crops as well as increasing protection against diseases. The seed treatments SPE-120 and SBb2.5 contain enough Beauveria bassiana to colonize the plant and the fungus grows as the plant grows. Applied before planting they are natural one and done treatments and SPE-120 is OMRI listed for organic use.
“We are very excited about the formation of LPC Naturals,” said Dr. Paul Rushton, President and Chief Scientific Officer of LPC. “We are now able to better promote and expand our brands and bring their benefits to growers. Many of our customers have seen tremendous increases in yields, quality, and resistance to stresses with crop plants such as corn, potato, soybean, peanuts, and rice. I am particularly interested in expanding our range of products into new areas such as legal industrial hemp/cannabis growing and hydroponics. Beauveria bassiana is very wide in the range of plants that it can colonize and so there are major new opportunities that we can now pursue.”
“The formation of LPC Naturals marks a key milestone in the commercialization of our product” added Nick Bianco, Senior Merchandiser at LPC. “We have seen repeatedly from farmers that our natural products improve the health of their plants and lead to increased revenues from their land. Our natural treatments more than pay for themselves and are a green alternative to the use of chemical pesticides.
Chris Lent added “Knowing that your crop plants are better equipped against disease from the moment that the seeds enter the ground not only reduces the stress on the plants but also on the growers. Through launching LPC Naturals, we can help more growers obtain better results in the field. This includes organic farmers because SPE-120 is listed for organic use. We firmly believe that we can provide a better future for plants, growers, and the environment.
