Envita is a systemic nitrogen fixing solution for crops including corn, soybeans, canola, wheat and rice that fundamentally changes the nitrogen equation on farms. Applied in-furrow or as a foliar spray, Envita works from within plant cells to fix its own nitrogen and close the gap between nitrogen need and availability. Air is 78% nitrogen and Envita bacteria naturally metabolizes N directly from the air, providing a steady source of nitrogen when and where the plant needs it most, all season long.

Envita™ is a naturally occurring, food grade bacteria – Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus. Applied in-furrow or as a foliar spray, Envita works from within plant cells to fix its own nitrogen from the air. Envita forms a symbiotic relationship with the host plant and provides nitrogen to cells throughout the plant, both above and below ground providing improved nitrogen use efficiency and yield advantages.
Azotic was formed to introduce Envita to farmers, retailers and distributors starting in the United States and Canada. With North American offices in Raleigh, North Carolina, Guelph, Ontario and a global office in York, UK, Azotic has taken more than 20 years of academic research and created the leading large scale, commercially available nitrogen-fixation product and is now offering it to farmers across the globe. Finally, there is no compromise between high yield production agriculture and nitrogen sustainability.
