Frequently Asked Questions About Using Terramar in Row Crop Programs

Posted by Agricen

Last season, Terramar was applied on over 2.7 million acres of row crops, including corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton. In this blog, we answer common questions about using Terramar in row crop programs.

What is Terramar?
Terramar is a breakthrough product that combines a biologically extracted kelp source and biologically extracted leonardite, which is a carbon source. It is intended for foliar applications in row crops at vegetative and reproductive stages. Terramar supplements a balanced crop nutrition system by helping to maximize plant performance and yield across any type of growing condition.

Why use Terramar in row crops?
Terramar is formulated to increase nutrient uptake and enhance stress mitigation, which can optimize plant health and contribute to enhanced yield. In 76 trials conducted from 2019 to 2023 across corn, soybeans, wheat and grain sorghum, Terramar offered an average yield advantage of +7.12 bu/acre compared to untreated check.

What are the key benefits of Terramar for row crops?
Terramar sets a new standard in stress mitigation and plant performance. Foliar application of Terramar improves abiotic stress tolerance (e.g. heat, cold, drought) at various stages of plant growth. Visible improvements in stressed crops can often be observed several days after application. Additionally, increased nutrient use efficiency has been documented when Terramar is applied in conjunction with a foliar nutrition program.

How is Terramar applied?
Terramar is recommended for liquid foliar applications in row crops to enhance plant performance while minimizing weather-induced stress. Foliar applications deliver Terramar's unique set of highly active, metabolite-based compounds for quicker absorption through the plant leaf tissue. The recommended rate for Terramar is 1 quart per acre. It is compatible with a broad range of liquid fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides for maximum application flexibility.

When should Terramar be applied?
Terramar can be applied in early post-emergent applications as well as mid- to late-season fungicide applications.

Should I apply Terramar even if I am not anticipating severe crop stress?
Yes. Terramar can optimize plant performance in all growing conditions, whether they are stressful conditions in which crop development could be impacted or average to ideal conditions in which crops have the best chance of reaching their yield potential.
