HGS BioScience™ and Tiger-Sul® Partner for Soil Health

Cindy Zimmerman

HGS BioScience™, a leader in the manufacture of dry-delivery, functional carbon, and Tiger-Sul® Products LLC, leaders in sulphur bentonite and micronutrient-enhanced crop performance products, are debuting a new strategic partnership for high-value soil health and nutritional products at Commodity Classic this week.

The first product in their joint venture is Tiger® Humi[K]™ 4%, which combines functional carbon with sulphur bentonite, both companies’ flagship products, in one easy-to use formulation, expected to be commercially available this month.

“This is a classic example of the sum being greater than the parts, said Scott Messer, Vice President, HGS BioScience™. “We are always thinking about ways to get our Performance Technology™ to customers who want to get more out of each acre. The ability to get both these products at once with Tiger Humi[K] is just that solution.”

This combination delivers functional carbon technology which improves soil health, increases nutrient uptakes, and reduces plant stress. The sulphur bentonite increases plant nutrient-use-efficiency, improves soil health and is in high demand to promote higher yields.

HGS and Tiger-Sul have been in talks for months establishing the details of the strategic partnership. The two agree that this will go much further than this initial product, with talks already beginning for other product innovations and joint marketing efforts.

“Growers are always looking for ways to lower input costs, improve efficiency, and increase yields,” said Kit Rowe, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Tiger-Sul. “We believe this new combination product hits all three marks with one convenient pastille. Growers can make fewer applications, and boost productivity.”
