Accomplish LM Helps Couple Win Two Corn Yield Contest Categories

Posted by Agricen

Today, we feature Kevin and Shawn Kalb of Dubois, Indiana, a husband and wife team who used Accomplish LM as part of their programs to win two non-irrigated categories in the 2017 National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) corn yield contest. With a yield of 386.16 bushels per acre, Kevin placed first nationwide in the AA non-irrigated corn category, while Shawn's yield of 354.13 bushels per acre put her in first place for AA no-till/strip-till non-irrigated corn

Top Corn Producers Used Accomplish LM, Extract PBA & Titan XC

Posted by Agricen

When the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announced the national winners of the 2017 NCGA corn yield contest earlier this year, four of these top corn producers had something big in common. It was their use of one or more biocatalyst technologies made by Agricen and available from Loveland Products. Over the next few weeks we will profile each of those top producers and talk about how they utilized Accomplish LM, Extract PBA or Titan XC as part of their winning program. This week, we start by featuring Don Stall of Charlotte, Michigan. With a yield of 407.22 bushels/acre, Don placed first in the nation for irrigated corn.

Biocatalyst Technologies a Good Match with Poultry Manures and Litters

Posted by Agricen

Poultry manures and litters are an excellent source of crop nutrients—ones that can be more easily accessed by the crop when Extract PBA or Accomplish LM is used. In the corn trials below, these biocatalyst technologies maximized nutrient release from poultry manures so that more nutrients were available faster to the crop, leading to higher corn yields.  

In a trial conducted in Kentucky, Extract PBA was spread with UAN over turkey manure in the fall. Soil samples from the treated and untreated plots were taken in January, and showed an increase in the availability of many nutrients with the Extract PBA application. At harvest there was a 16.9 bu/acre corn yield increase where Extract PBA had been applied.

Wheat Yield Gain with Accomplish LM

Posted by Agricen

Trial results from North Carolina show how Accomplish LM can offer growers wheat yield gains when broadcast in the spring. 

In a wheat trial conducted last season, Accomplish LM was applied at 2 quarts/acre in the spring along with a nitrogen urease inhibitor and UAN broadcast at 20 gallons/acre. The treated part of the field showed a wheat yield increase of 8.13 bushels/acre, compared to no treatment (UAN alone).

Breaking Down Corn Stalk Residue with Extract PBA

Posted by Agricen

In a demonstration conducted by Crop Production Services (CPS) in Galesburg, Illinois, Extract PBA was sprayed in fall 2017 on a corn field post-harvest. In spring of 2018, stalks were pulled and split to examine the differences in residue breakdown between treated and untreated parts of the field. As seen in the photo, the Extract-treated stalks were in a more advanced stage of decomposition than untreated stalks by early spring. 

Extract PBA was sprayed on Nov. 29, 2017. This photo shows corn stalks from treated and untreated parts of the field that were pulled and split on March 23, 2018.

Understanding the Biochemistry in Accomplish Technologies

Posted by Agricen

Accomplish LM, Extract PBA, and Titan XC contain concentrated biochemistry that helps growers increase nutrient availability to their crop, enhance root growth and functioning, and improve overall plant performance. But, what exactly is biochemistry?

Biochemistry is the chemistry of life. It is created by, in, and from living organisms, such as soil microbes. A number of different biochemistries are created by soil microbes—each serving an important role in soil microbial functioning, and even in plant functioning.

[Trial Data] Titan XC Proves Agronomic Benefit in Cotton, Corn & Soybeans

Posted by Agricen

Results from cotton, corn and soybean trials conducted in North Carolina and Virginia last season show how Titan XC can optimize yield potential by enhancing the availability of applied P&K within an annual cropping cycle.

In cotton, treating dry fertilizer with Titan XC led to a yield increase of 328 lbs of lint/acre compared to untreated fertilizer, for a return on investment of over $203/acre for the grower.

Agricen and Taranis Awarded Grant for Abiotic Stress Detection & Prevention Project

Posted by Agricen

Agricen and Taranis, a precision agriculture company, have received a grant from the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation to collaborate on a project to advance and commercialize a new precision agriculture system for abiotic stress detection and prevention in row crops. 

Abiotic stresses are environmental or physical impacts on a plant (e.g., drought, salinity, extreme temperatures, nutrient deficiency), and result in billions of dollars of lost crop value each year. The Agricen/Taranis collaboration will address this agricultural challenge by creating a solution that merges the Taranis platform—which incorporates field imaging technology and a deep learning algorithmwith Agricen’s proven biostimulant technologies.

Spring-Applied Extract PBA Gives Corn a Big Boost

Posted by Agricen

In this corn field trial from Wood River, Nebraska, a spring application of Extract PBA led to a corn yield result that was 32 bu/a better than check at harvest. Assuming $3.10 bushel corn, the yield result from this trial translates into an ROI of $87.20 per acre.
