Sensient BioNutrients continues diversifying its robust Bloomgenix™ platform
Expanding toolbox of ingredients allows formulators to design solutions to boost crop yield, provide growth-period continuity, and support eco-friendly production initiatives
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Illinois — Nov. 27, 2023 — Doing more with less is a hallmark of today’s agricultural sector. Sensient BioNutrients, a business unit of Sensient Flavors & Extracts, continues to help growers and formulators meet that challenge with its Bloomgenix™ line of natural, sustainable plant nutrition solutions.
“The agricultural sector is charged with increasing yield in a resource-constrained environment,” said Carlos Repiso, global technical service manager, plant nutrition, at Sensient BioNutrients. “They must grow more food to feed the planet’s growing population, yet also do so while reducing their production footprint and caring for the ecosystem. It’s a tough balancing act. Our Bloomgenix portfolio provides solutions at every stage of growth to drive healthy, sustainable food systems.”
Sensient has built a proven track record spanning more than a decade of helping agribusiness companies elevate their product range while streamlining their research and development processes. Building on that success, Sensient launched the Bloomgenix biostimulant in 2021 and is now expanding Bloomgenix to a growing platform. Sensient Bloomgenix offers an eco-friendly, animal-free line of ingredients that are backed by scientific research that formulators can use when designing high-performance products.
Consistent innovation by the Sensient R&D team, through ongoing trials within the company’s own growing fields and deep expertise in extraction techniques, has allowed Bloomgenix to become a market leader in quality solutions, with two specialty product ranges that boost productivity with biostimulants and fermentation.
Bloomgenix Biostimulants consist of extracts with highly concentrated effect, developed to help biostimulant manufacturers achieve powerful and potent end-products with flexibility and ease of use. The resulting differentiated products can improve the ROI for growers through improvements in yield and quality while reducing the need for high amounts of field inputs.
Bloomgenix Biostimulants create higher-performing growth solutions and can be used:
- to formulate into nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (NPK) fertilizers or blend with macro- and microelements for enhanced foliar applications;
- with other biostimulant ingredients, such as seaweed extracts, beneficial microbes, and plant growth regulators (PGRs);
- as a standalone ingredient for plant growth and seed and field treatments (nutrition, yield, and quality) applications.
Bloomgenix Fermentation offers faster and more efficient bioagricultural fermentations with improved productivity and product performance. Sensient’s specialized technical support team tailors fermentation nutrients for optimized nutrition, resulting in benefits such as more biomass, better metabolite yields, and shorter fermentation time, with fewer impurities, better shelf-life stability, and better recovery.
Sensient prioritizes sustainability when developing our solutions. Bloomgenix helps address the rising concerns of sustainability in the agriculture sector by reducing the environmental impact while increasing yield. Bloomgenix solutions, when applied to a crop, can improve the uptake of nutrients into the plant, thus reducing the crop’s resource requirements. This results in less use of water and arable land and fewer emissions on the farm and in transportation. Higher nutrient-use efficiencies can help farmers reduce their use of synthetic nitrogen-based fertilizers, improving soil and water health, while ultimately harvesting a higher-quality yield.
Products like Bloomgenix also see upstream environmental benefits by upcycling waste streams and byproducts from breweries and corn processing, resulting in less waste, fewer emissions, smarter farming, smarter production, and a true circular economy.
“Sensient has always been committed to sustainable solutions across the organization,” said Varun Mathur, General Manager of Sensient BioNutrients. “From our vertically integrated agronomy program to our water conservation efforts, Sensient keeps striving to maintain a healthy environment. Our Bloomgenix portfolio of natural, sustainable solutions demonstrates our commitment to helping drive sustainable food systems by invigorating your brand and product offerings.”
