dc.description.abstractThe commercialization of phosphate inoculant is a challenging process. The active ingredient of the phosphate inoculant JumpStart® (P. bilaiae) was isolated in 1982. Although the concept of P solubilization was proven, much additional research was required. Cost effective manufacturing processes, packaging and QA systems, and easy-to-use, shelf stable formulations needed to be developed. Extensive field research to confirm efficacy was needed. Comprehensive data on compatibility with seed-applied pesticides were required. Development continues to be an on-going process with the use of the product on new crops, improved production methods and formulations, new applications, and continuing market research to monitor changing farmer needs.en_US
