Facts From the Field – Maximizing ROI by Reducing Yield Limiting Abiotic Stress

What are you doing to maximize the return on your investment in the genetic potential of the seed you purchased? Mother nature sometimes works against us, limiting yield potential, with her most effective tool, abiotic stress. As producers we try to control the things we can and leave the rest up to mother nature, but what if there was something we could do to reduce her negative impact?

Learn about some tools you can use against abiotic stress on this Facts From the Field.

Did you know that 30-40% of yield loss occurs during the reproduction growth stage in our crops, almost regardless of the type of crop we are growing? Foliar nutrition plays a key role in late season nutrient management. Phosphorus, as it plays in energy (sugar) flow within the plant, can play a key role in foliar applications that specifically target seed and fruit development.

Foliar Nutrition to Prevent Stress

The Fertileader series of products are combinations of highly available nutrients and our patented Seactiv™ Complex. The formulations are designed to provide the plant with a critical nutritional and physiological boost at vegetative and reproductive stages during times of stress. The technology is available in several formulas that provide specific nutrient combinations to match a crop’s unique nutritional requirements.

Among Fertileader’s key benefits are:

  • Foliar nutrition to help correct deficiencies and reduce in-season stress
  • Amino acid chelated nutrients (low molecular weight carriers) which are easily absorbed by the plant
  • Flexible formulations with ideal nutrient packages for vegetative and reproductive stages

Research Shows

Field research has consistently shown the positive effects of Fertileader in yield and quality. See some of this evidence below:

Effect of Fertileader on Soybean Yield

Source: Independent grower and contract research across the U.S.

Sponsored trials done in several US states from 2013 to 2017, showed a national average of 6.2 bu/ac increase in soybean yield. Bars in the graph show average yields comparing untreated soybeans to Fertileader treated soybeans.

Effect of Fertileader on Grape Bunch Weight

Fertileader Gold (1 qt/ac, pre-flower) improved fruit set and reduced shot berries, resulting in higher bunch weights. Bars are the average weight of 10 bunches sampled at 3 stages of development.

In this side by side, Fertileader Gold was added to part of a wheat field that had already been fertilized with one of our technologies, Excelis Maxx. Although both sides had a healthy development, the plot with the Fertileader application clearly had a boost on size and number of grains, indicating the power of combining Timac Agro technologies for maximum results.

Timac Agro’s Duo Maxx is the world’s first NPK stabilizer with a Microbial Activator. The product is a combination of our patented phenolic binding compound, MPPA, nitrogen stabilizer, and our patented Duo Complex. The formulation ensures maximum below-ground protection against nutrient loss.

Duo Maxx is intended for treatment of incorporated liquid and granular fertilizer blends with N but can also be used on surface-applied P and K. The technology impacts how nutrients interact with both the soil and the plant. Duo Maxx has:

    • MPPA – a large carbon-source/humate that, through our patented activation process, can help “hold” both cations and anions in order to reduce nutrient tie-up and leaching issues in the soil.
    • XCK1750 – a naturally occurring plant extract that works as a microbial activator to improve nutrient uptake for the plant.
    • LCN Complex – NPBT (urease inhibitor) and DCD (nitrification inhibitor) to help combat nitrogen loss.

Documented Research

Research done by numerous teams of scientists in various field and laboratory settings has consistently shown the positive effects of Duo Maxx when compared to untreated fertilizer or treated with other products that claim to be similar. See below some of this evidence.

Effect of Duo Maxx on Nitrate Leaching

Source: CMI – Roullier R&D, St, Malo, FR, 2017.

Duo Maxx reduced nitrate leaching in soil columns. Data presented are the average nitrate levels of three replicate columns that received 0.6” of simulated rain at each time point. Leachate samples were then collected and analyzed for nitrate.

Effect of Duo Maxx on soluble phosphorus

Source: University of Navarra, Spain, and Inobos Labs, 1994.

Duo Maxx maintained soluble phosphorus in conditions of aggressive retrograde tie-up (calcareous soil with pH of 7.9). Data presented are the average of 3 soil x fertilizer replicates.

National Average on Corn Yields

National Average on all university and contract research: +8 bu/ac

 

Duo Maxx In-Furrow & 2×2 Liquid Fertilizer Research in Corn

One of the main features of Duo Maxx is its versatility. It can be applied with different starters in different ways and still achieve great results, giving the grower the flexibility he needs to make the best choices for his crop.

 

Enhanced nutrient uptake

Source: Timac Agro USA R&D, Florida. Contract trial, 2009

Duo Maxx helps enhance nutrient uptake to generate fuller, more vigorous plants. The graphs above compile the averages of 9 replicate samples of bermudagrass taken over 45 days. Fertilizer was a blend of AMS, UAN, and urea applied at a rate of 1 lb N/1000 ft².

 

Impressive Results in the Field

In addition to the impressive results in the lab, Duo Maxx shows visual results in the field. On several side by side trials, it is possible to see clear differences and appreciate the effects the technology produces on roots and plants.

This season the University of Wisconsin is working on a potato research trial plot where Duo Maxx was added to the nitrogen application. The visual results can be seen on the roots and also on the plant’s vigor.

Similar results were seen on a side by side collected in a field in Pennsylvania. A bigger root system allows for better nutrient uptake, which results in improved canopy development.

On corn, Duo Maxx also shows consistent results, with increased root development. Here’s another impressive side by side that shows the value of this technology.

The months right after harvest present a window of opportunity for foliar nutrition on stone fruits, such as peaches and cherries. Taking this time to increase micronutrient loads into your trees can make a big difference for next spring.

On this Facts From the Field, we present a solution to address three important micronutrients at post-harvest stage: boron, zinc, and manganese.

When fruits and vegetables start to produce flowers and setting fruit, it is a critical time for calcium management, as it plays a key role in producing high quality fruit. Calcium dramatically effects cell division, cell elongation, and strengthening of cell wall membranes. Not only the foundation of quality vegetable production, calcium deficiency in the fruit causes a disorder called Blossom End Rot (BER).

On this Facts From the Field, we present a solution to avoid calcium deficiency on fruits ad vegetable crops.
