This trial demonstrates that the BioAg fertiliser applications offer multiple benefits in vegetable cultivation, such as a) increased yield, b) increased revenue and c) improved quality.
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.
BioAg program independent trial results 2010-2011. Crop: Chilli. Up to +17.4% yield increase above district standard practice.
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.
