Why are biocatalyst technologies particularly well suited for early season application?

Early season application of one or more biocatalyst technologies can help kick start the nutrient cycling process in the soil. Early season typically means colder soils and low microbial activity. That is why growers apply corn starters in early spring at planting; soils are cold, and microbes are not yet processing soil phosphorus and other nutrients into plant-available forms. The biochemistry in biocatalyst products such as Extract PBA and Accomplish MAX can help mitigate the limitations caused by cold soils and low microbial activity.
