Crop trial undertaken by University of Peardeniya, Sri Lanka Faculty of Agriculture – Department of Crop Science in collaboration with BioAg Pty Ltd Australia.

Up to +17.4% yield increase above district standard practice.

Trial Objectives

  • To measure the economic benefits of BioAg technology in Sri Lankan horticultural crops
  • To identify and measure the economic and agronomic benefits of BioAgPhos as a source of phosphorus in horticultural crops
  • To identify and measure the economic and agronomic benefits of BioAg Soil & Seed and other BioAg liquid fertilisers in horticultural crops

Yield results

The overall findings were that the fertiliser treatments where the nutrient levels were modified (T2, T3, & T4) produced comparable yields with the conventional fertiliser level recommended for chili crop by the DOA. However, treatment T4 had the best yield, which was 17% better than control

Green Chilli Yield

Variations of green chilli yield of six different picks are shown below. Analysis indicated that the total yield of six picks were not significantly different
