Rootella X Mycorrhizal Inoculants Help Corn Warrior Cory Atley Achieve Record Yields

MAZOR, Israel and CEDARVILLE, Ohio, Feb. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Groundwork BioAg, Ltd. and Advanced Yield LLC are pleased to announce collaboration to market Rootella® mycorrhizal inoculants in the US. Cory Atley, award-winning corn grower and owner of Advanced Yield, has been using Rootella® products on his 8,000-acre farm over the last three years. After achieving record yields with Rootella® X-treated corn in 2020, Mr. Atley decided to add Rootella® products to Advanced Yield’s product portfolio.

Cory Atley, a Corn Warrior, won the National Corn Growers Association yield contest for Ohio each of the past four years. He has also won best soybean yields, above 90 bushel per acre, three times. “Rootella helped us achieve our recent winning yield of 320.24 bushels per acre,” states Atley, adding, “it improved our yields by 4-12 bushels per acre across our farm.”

Danny Levy, VP R&D at Groundwork BioAg, explains: “Rootella® X is a high-performance mycorrhizal inoculant, especially suitable for professional seed treatment. Farmers apply only 0.21oz of Rootella® X per acre, which fits easily in any seed treater. Even at this low load factor, they get the highest amount of active ingredient per seed on the market.”
