Emerald Research - Delivering sustainable optimised crop performance

We encapsulate our R&D learning alongside detailed and novel soil analysis techniques into our OptiYield® computer software system. OptiYield® provides our clients with significant advantage over those using ‘standard’ fertiliser advisory manuals and systems, typically producing crop yield increases of between 15% to 30%.



OptiYield® is a unique total crop nutrition programme developed by Emerald Research and is a proven commercial system based on years of research that has been shown to greatly enhance crop growth, health, quality & performance.

OptiYield® produces detailed recommendations for timings of specific nutrients, biostimulants and microbials for all crops throughout the growing season that are tailored to the Grower’s fields, varieties and intended markets.

Many growers and farmers have adopted the full OptiYield®system where their crops benefit from the range of inputs recommended in the full programme.

Emerald Research is a market leader in researching and developing “Next Generation” plant nutrient, biostimulant and biological products. We use the latest formulation technology to ensure product activity is maximised during uptake by crops or availability in soils. This means that optimum performance is achieved from all inputs, with little to no waste, contributing to your sustainability.

Emerald Research’s OptiYield® CHIPS (Crop Health Increased Performance System) delivers measurable improvements in crop performance in terms of plant health, vigour, quantity, and quality for the agricultural industry.

Growers using OptiYield® CHIPS already see typical marketable yield increases of 10-25%, bringing significant net margin and profit increases.

Our 10 Key Objectives:

       1. Increase crop yields by 40% within 10 years without need for GMO

       2. Immediate 50% reduction in Nitrogen & Phosphate fertiliser inputs

       3. Immediate drastic reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions

       4. Continue to improve crop resilience and reliability in an increasingly erratic climate

       5. Minimise need for petrochemical fungicides within 5 years

       6. Eliminate need for soil applied petrochemical pesticides

       7. Continue to improve crop quality and nutritional value

       8. Minimise crop waste through field loss or rejection

       9. Build soil carbon and soil health

     10. Continue to develop better management tools for farmers & advisors

ADAS are planning a Nutrition Challenge to compare the effect of different nutrition programmes on winter feed wheat yield, N uptake and gross margin, in the 2022/23 season. This is particularly timely following the recent dramatic rise in nitrogen fertiliser prices, which has forced the industry to re-examine nutrition strategies. Objectives of the project are to showcase good nutrition products and practices so that farmers are equipped and encouraged to use fertiliser better, for the benefit of the environment and their own gross margins.
