iNvigorate and B Sure Field Trials Show Yield Increases on Corn and Soybeans
DAVIS, Calif. (March 27, 2018)—Field trials conducted by Akron Services, Inc. demonstrate significant per acre yield improvements from plots treated with iNvigorate® and B Sure®. Akron Services is a U.S.-based retail partner of Agrinos. The trials were conducted on multiple corn and soybean fields in Illinois over the 2017 growing season.
One trial spanning four farm locations found that corn treated with B Sure produced an average yield increase of fifteen bushels per acre compared to control plots (Figure 1). Corn fields treated with B Sure produced an average of 280 bushels per acre, compared to the controls field average of 265 bushels per acre.
A separate trial showed a yield increase of eleven bushels per acre on corn fields treated with iNvigorate as a component of the starter fertilizer mix (Figure 2). A third trial conducted across three different farm locations showed the use of B Sure on soybeans produced an average yield increase of 4.5 bushels per acre compared to control plots (Figure 3).
“These results are consistent with the improved corn and soybean yields our commodity crop customers throughout the U.S. are recording,” said Mike Turnipseed, an Agrinos senior district sales manager serving the Midwest. “By strengthening the soil microbiome and helping to deliver critical, highly bioavailable nutrients, iNvigorate and B Sure are ultimately promoting improved plant health, crop quality and higher yields.”
iNvigorate is a soil-applied proprietary microbial liquid solution that promotes a highly productive microbiome in the soil rhizosphere to support plant health and yield. iNvigorate was applied alongside fertilizer, promoting the absorption of nitrogen and critical minerals to increase the level of bioavailable nutrients to the plant. Applying 1 quart of iNvigorate per acre created a vigorous root system and enhanced crop quality and yield under both favorable and stressful growth conditions.
B Sure is a unique foliar nutrient solution that increases activity of multiple critical metabolic pathways in the crop. The trial data demonstrates increased yield when B Sure is applied as a foliar application. Foliar applications of B Sure enhance crop tolerance to environmental and physiological stresses, resulting in higher yields.
