Bio Reverse®  

Stalk degradation is an essential part of field management. The Andersons Bio Reverse is a robust microbial package designed to significantly reduce residue stubble prior to the next cropping season. The unique, tough, and stable formulation has been designed to compost and break down residue to improve seed-to-soil contact, help reduce planter or tire damage from tough crop stalks and reverse nutrient tie-up in crop residue to provide more available nutrients prior to your next season’s planting.

Robust residue management solution

Bio Reverse was applied to wheat straw stubble and the nutrient value of rainwater was collected. The Bio Reverse treatment had significant residue breakdown, releasing ten times more nutrients compared to the untreated check.

The corn stalks on the right were treated with 1 pt/acre of Bio Reverse in the fall post-harvest. The stalks treated with Bio Reverse had more residue breakdown compared to the untreated check on the left the following spring.


At our Indiana Research plot, Bio Reverse was applied at a rate of 1 pt/a. to corn stalks after harvest.  The soybean crop grown following the application of Bio Reverse resulted in 4 bu/a yield gain over the untreated check. 


A research site in Wisconsin applied Bio Reverse in the fall after harvest. A significant difference in residue breakdown was observed where Bio Reverse was applied compared to the untreated check. Below are side-by-side photos showcasing the comparison. When looking at the amount of residue breakdown, remember, that more breakdown equals more nutrients released into the system. The researcher also noted taller plants earlier in the season when Bio Reverse was applied.

As seen below, Bio Reverse and Bio Reverse paired with MicroCarb has been proven to boost yields in both corn and soybean crops. 

How is Bio Reverse Applied? 

Bio Reverse may be applied with fall herbicides, mixed with liquid fertilizers, impregnated on dry fertilizers, included in pivot irrigation, or sprayed with any other carriers that may be applied in the spring or fall.
