Some recent Crop Production Services trials conducted in Ohio show how an application of Extract PBA can break down cover crop skeletons to release nutrients for the following crop. In the top pictures, Extract PBA was applied in the fall at 1 gallon per acre. In the spring prior to emergence, the treated part of the field had better planting conditions and more available nutrients compared to the untreated part of the field, which translated into healthier soybean plants during the growing season.
In the picture below, Extract PBA was applied in summer at 2 gallons per acre. Once again, this side by side trial shows healthier, more robust soybean plants in the Extract PBA-treated part of the field compared to no treatment.
