Take Off®

Nitrogen Fertilizer Manager

Increase Nitrogen Uptake

Take Off® is a revolutionary nitrogen-management technology that accelerates nutrient acquisition and assimilation as well as nitrogen use efficiency. Discovered by Los Alamos National Laboratory and developed by Verdesian Life Sciences, Take Off works from inside the plant to improve nitrogen use efficiency, boost crop growth and increase yield potential.

The active ingredient in Take Off helps the plant to assimilate nitrogen more efficiently, which improves how the plant utilizes other nutrients such as phosphorus and sulfur. It also leads to increased carbon fixation and metabolism, fueling faster root and top growth. This creates a bigger plant that captures more nutrients from the soil and more sunlight, which, in turn, delivers increased plant vigor, growth and productivity.
