In SymTRX, we applied the natural principles associated with organic matter in the soil to create a novel, enhanced efficiency, bio-based plant nutrition product. Created using a proprietary process, SymTRX uses the Organic MaTRX to bind with nutrient ions, creating a homogenous, multi-nutrient, slow-release product that works in perfect symmetry with the soil itself to create stronger, healthier plants. This novel method meets the increasing demands for better, more efficient delivery of nutrients to plants and supports the 4R Nutrient Stewardship initiative to better manage nutrient delivery.
The result? Healthier crops, less nutrient loss via leaching and volatilization, and the confidence you’re using a product that is good for people, plants and planet.
- The Organic MaTRX – a novel slow-release nutrient delivery system
- Homogenous multi-nutrient product
- Dual release
- Delivers nutrients in available forms such as ammonium N and sulfur sulfate
- Contains up to 16 percent organics
- Standard-size dry, hard granules
- Efficient nutrient delivery without the use of coatings or polymers, and reduced nutrient loss to leaching or volatilization, contributing to a healthy environment and bottom line
- Delivers important nutrients in a uniform way for even feeding
- Provides nutrients when plants need them most, optimizing utilization and plant performance
- More easily taken up by plants for efficient utilization, which translates to improved yields
- Better soil and root zone health
- Can be stored easily without caking or setup

Trial Results: Crop
Research on our products has been an on-going process since 2012 with trials on various crop species. This is an overview of some of the major trials that have been conducted.
Mode of Action Research
Anuvia’s Organic MaTRX represents a novel mechanism to deliver nutrients efficiently reducing loss to the environment. This new approach to delivering plant nutrition improves soil health, reduces volatilization and provides nutrients as plants need them. The following studies, explore that potential.
NOTE: The most commonly accepted measurement of soil health is the CO2 emission test. It measures CO2 given off by soil microbes. Higher emission levels signify more soil microbial activity, which leads to better soil health.
Dr. Dustin Harrell,
Louisiana State University 2016
Dr. Harrell evaluated cumulative N volatilization losses for urea/NBPT, urea/NBPT plus AMS, and SymTRX20S blends where urea/NBPT was 70% of the nitrogen. NBPT was very effective in minimizing nitrogen loss in the initial days after application but began to experience higher losses after approximately 3 days. The AMS treatment maintained lower losses for up to 5 days when used with urea/NBPT. The best protection from nitrogen loss came from the urea/NBPT + SymTRX20S product (16-1-0-20S-2Fe) with very good protection for up to 9 days.
Dr. Katie Lowe,
Kansas State University 2015
Dr. Lowe measured the conversion of ammonium nitrogen to nitrate nitrogen for urea, urea with NBPT and Anuvia products. The conversion of urea to the nitrate form is rapid as shown in the urea graph. Nitrogen in the nitrate form is subject to leaching whereas nitrogen in the ammoniacal form is less likely to leach. The NBPT was superior to the urea alone by delaying the nitrogen conversion but the Anuvia product maintained the ammoniacal form longer for higher potential nutrient utilization by the plants.
Dr. Jerry Sartain,
University of Florida 2013
Dr. Sartain conducted a 182-day dissolution study using GreenTRX. The GreenTRX released ~65% of its nitrogen in a sterile soil in the first two weeks as shown by the green line. This represents the water soluble portion on the nitrogen in the absence of soil microflora. Very little of the remaining nitrogen is released under this sterile soil condition. The black dotted line represents the nitrogen release in the presence of low levels of soil microflora as would be found in most soils. The area between the lines represents the nutrients released due to microbial activity. The study validates the claim that ~35% of the nitrogen in the Anuvia products is slow release. The rate of dissolution would be influenced by soil temperature or other factors that would affect soil microbial activity.
