Inhabit P™ can replace conventional corn starter fertilizer with 10X less product required, consistently demonstrating higher ROI* and equal yield performance compared to conventional starter.

Because it requires farmers to purchase, store, haul, and apply less product to achieve the same impact, Inhabit P™ not only maximizes ROI and maintains yield, but it also reduces storage requirements, streamlines application, and improves long-term soil health. 

What Is Inhabit P™? 

Inhabit P™ is a low salt, high efficiency liquid corn fertilizer starter. It contains a unique  micro-humate complexed with phosphorus that helps reduce tie up with other minerals, keeping it available for the plant to use and reducing required application rates. With a high water ratio and no salt, Inhabit P™ is safe and easy on equipment. 

By using Inhabit P™ instead of a high-salt fertilizer, farmers can: 

  • Enable more robust root development

  • Improve long-term soil health

  • Buffer high pH levels

  • Address regional phosphorus use restrictions

Inhabit P™ Field Trial Details

Inhabit P™ vs. conventional starter usage results were collected through 22 FBN® Innovators Research League trials conducted across 1,621 acres between 11 U.S. states. 

These images depict examples of crops treated with Inhabit P™ compared to those treated with conventional starter or no starter and the potential impact of each starter approach on root development.
