Lystek’s proven technology transforms biosolids and other organics into a pathogen free, federally registered, CFIA (Canada) and Class A quality (U.S.A.) recognized biofertilizer product.

As chemical fertilizer prices steadily increase and alternative sources of valuable organic matter become harder and harder to source, LysteGro biofertilizer provides an economical, sustainable and highly effective alternative to traditional fertilization.

LysteGro is an organically-based, concentrated biofertilizer product with a full complement of nutrients suitable for a wide range of fertilization requirements.

LysteGro – Features & Benefits

N-P-K: LysteGro contains high concentrations of all three macronutrients (4.5 – 7 – 2.5), resulting in a robust and valuable biofertilizer product.

MICRONUTRIENTS: In addition to the macros, LysteGro provides a variety of valuable micronutrients including high concentrations of Sulphur, Calcium, Iron and Magnesium.

ORGANIC MATTER: LysteGro is also ideal for building soil structure due to a uniquely high concentration of organic matter in the material. This helps to improve water retention, soil tilth and pore space.

MULTI-YEAR BENEFIT: Similar to manure, LysteGro is high in organic matter and valuable nutrients that are released slowly, over time, thus providing essential benefits for several years after application.

QUALITY & SAFETY: Lystek’s patented and proven, quality controlled, manufacturing approach leverages a combination of heat, high-speed shearing (lysing) and the addition of alkali, to produce LysteGro. The result is a truly unique biofertilizer product that is healthy for the soil, safe, reliable and pathogen free.

Frequently Asked Questions

What crops are most suitable for LysteGro application?

LysteGro is suitable for a wide range of crops, and can be integrated into nutrient management plans like any fertilizer product. It has particularly good applicability in annual field crops, as well as some perennial crops, and has been evaluated in a variety of specialty crops/products as well.  To date, LysteGro has been successfully applied to the following crops:

  • corn (grain/silage)
  • wheat
  • soybeans
  • hay (legumes and grasses)
  • canola
  • barley
  • safflower
  • cover crops (rye, tillage radish, oats)

There are many other crops which would be suitable for planting with LysteGro application. Please contact us to discuss this further.

How does Lystek manage the product?

We work with local haulers and application contractors and engage with the local farm community to ensure LysteGro is being managed in the most responsible manner. LysteGro is subsurface injected using conventional liquid manure handling equipment.  Our Product Management team of agronomists and crop advisors build a customer base and work with application contractors to ensure all relevant regulations and best management practices are adhered to.

How are application rates determined?

Application rates are determined based on crop needs and soil properties, in consultation with the farmer and/or their agronomist. All relevant regulations are always followed. Typical application rates are between 2,500 – 4,000 Imperial Gallons per acre.

How do you deal with odors?

Due to the characteristics of our high-solids liquid hydrolyzed product and our management practices odor is mitigated in comparison to Class B cake.  The relatively higher pH and temperature result in the release of minimal ammonia during processing, however this is easily captured within the enclosed process vessel. Once the material is processed it is piped to storage (enclosed).  From storage, the product is pumped into enclosed tanker trucks and is then transferred to in-field application tankers and injected subsurface. There is little to no exposure to air (which equals the potential for odor issues) throughout the entire process. This is one of the key advantages of a liquid product compared with dewatered or dried biosolids.

How much does LysteGro cost?
The price of LysteGro is locally determined based on management costs and fertilizer pricing.
