PRODUCT: MAXGreen Crop Enhancer
Beans treated with MAXGreen Crop Enhancer in Red River County, Texas, yielded 48 bu. per acre in a high-stress season. The farmer shot this photo of treated soybeans on July 27, 2009. Untreated beans in an adjoining field were about 10 inches shorter on the same date. The untreated beans yielded just 20 bu. per acre — 28 bu. less than this treated half of the field. Asgro 4546 beans were planted April 23. Heavy rains followed. “All through June, we had no rain.We had 13 days in June where the heat index was over 110 degrees. The rains started again July 4.”
Look at the thick stalk and roots!
This is an example of substantial yield differences which farmers report after hot or dry stress hits their crops during vegetative and seed set stages. Applications of MAXGreen Crop Enhancer results in thicker soybean stalks and deeper rooting. In 2009, heavy and persistent fall rains prevented many North Carolina farmers from harvesting beans until December or later. These soybeans (photo, left) were treated with 8 oz. of MAXGreen Crop Enhancer. They have massive stalks and deep roots. Beans didn’t lodge or become moldy in spite of a soggy fall. The owner harvested over 50 bu. per acre from this field, one of the highest soybean yields he has had from this very sandy land.
The cotton in an adjoining field also had thick stalks — and more cotton per acre than he had ever raised on that field. We attribute massive stalks and roots to early MAXGreen Crop Enhancer application and enhanced nutrient transport within the plant. The early root exudates stimulate soil organisms, which improve the root rhizosphere and make more soil nutrients available to the crop.
Farmers tell us MAXGreen Crop Enhancer helps speed maturity, which reduces frost threats. Growers also report that a spray of MAXGreen Crop Enhancer on the day of a predicted overnight frost offers crops a degree or two of freeze protection. MAXGreen Crop Enhancer’s tiny micelles somehow reduce cell-freezing damage.
