Product Overview


Put Nature to Work for you

JumpStart delivers enhanced phosphate availability for increased root growth and a larger leaf area.

JumpStart is an inoculant containing the naturally occurring soil fungus Penicillium bilaiae (P. bilaiae), which grows along plant roots, releasing phosphate bound in the soil, making it more available for the crop to use.

Penicillium bilaiae, the active ingredient in JumpStart, does not eliminate the need for phosphate fertilizer, but provides crops access to more phosphate for higher yield potential.

Key benefits at a glance

  • Improved phosphate availability
  • Earlier more uniform maturity
  • Active in cool soil temps helping to enhance early-season vigour


Efficiently use your phosphate fertilizer

Up to 90% of applied phosphate fertilizer goes unused in the year of application as it gets tied (bound) to soil particles and other elements, making it unavailable to the crop. Some of this is used over subsequent years, but at least 25% never becomes available1. It is crucial to make the most efficient use of fertilizer phosphate to maximize yield potential.

How the Technology Works

Freeing Phosphate - Penicillium bilaiae releases bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate, making it more readily available for the plant to use.

Nature's Technology STACKED

QuickStart your crop with JumpStart® and QuickRoots® inoculants. Together, these products help create a powerful biological system, improving nutrient and moisutre uptake and helping to increase yield potential.

QuickRoots technology contains the biologicals Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Trichoderma virens that help increase the availability and uptake of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium.
