8.3 t/ha yield achieved after stock grazed on the crop in August. +17% yield increase above the control
While a hot dry spring produced a suite of disappointing results at South Australia’s premier field cropping trial site, BioAg’s Balance & Grow was able to produce a significant impact on protein.
The aim of the trial was to determine the extent to which the application of BioAg bio-stimulants would enhance the effectiveness of the conventional fertilisers applied at sowing and whether an economic benefit would result. The BioAg treated crop yielded an extra 700kg/ha (12.7%) compared with the “control” and this produced an extra $168.55/ha in gross margin (37.7%) after taking into account the extra cost of the BioAg treatment.
The greatest increase in yield was observed in the treatments where BioAg Balance & Grow was applied by foliar application at the mid-tillering growth stage
Agrisearch Services Pty Ltd to conducted an independent ‘evaluation of BioAg biostimulants for improving crop growth and yield in wheat’ near Balaklava (SA) in 2011. Applications of BioAg Soil & Seed and Balance & Grow increased yield.
Results from the Lake Bolac, Victoria trial site show that the use of Soil & Seed increased yield, with the most significant increase shown with a program that combined Soil & Seed, Fruit & Balance and Balance & Grow.
