Effectiveness of BALANCE® for the growth of the corn crop

On those days, it begins the campaign for the cultivation of corn, a cereal that has been present in agriculture for thousands of years and it is extremely important in the basic diet of society. For this reason and on this occasion, we want to share one of our trials about the benefits of biostimulants in corn. Specifically, about the effectiveness of BALANCE® in the growth of the corn crop.

Effectiveness of BALANCE® in the growth of the corn crop.

And what does BALANCE® do? Being an auxin-cytokine hormonal complex, it has naturally occurring active phyto-ingredients enriched in nucleotides, amino acids and vitamins. All of these substances stimulate cytokinesis, which facilitates the processes of cell division. As the result, we will see BALANCE® trials applied to corn cultivation.  The biostimulant capacity of the Residue Free product, which does not have without any phytotoxicity, increases the quantity and quality of leaves, flowers and promotes optimal vegetative growth. We just want to show our farmers for their preparation for planting this extended corn and cereal cultive.

In trials, such as this one on its effectiveness in increasing olive production and quality, BALANCE® has proven to be a powerful bio activator. In this case, it shows it again on the corn crop treatment by foliar application of BALANCE®.

The experiment of BALANCE® in corn cultivation 

In this new trial on the cultivation of corn (variation Asgrow 7573), we evaluated and demonstrated the biological effectiveness of this biostimulant in variables as closely linked to crop performance and product quality as:

  • The dry weight of biomass in the final stage of the plants. We collected five plants and dried them on the stove at 60ºC as a method of the dry weight.
  • The dry weight of root biomass. We take the root of five plants and dry them on the stove at 60ºC.
  • The yield in tons per hectare. We evaluate the weight in grains produced by every 10 plants.
  • The weight of 1.000 grains. We collected four samples of 1,000 grains per experimental unit and checked their weight.

We always say, our goal is to develop a sustainable agriculture, without residues, respectful and healthy… but also productive. Also we see Zero Residue Agriculture, to which our line of biostimulants are perfect for, as the solution for future of agriculture.

The trial was carried out between August and November 2019, for the corn crop located in the municipality of Tepalcingo (Morelos), Mexico. To evaluate the effectiveness of BALANCE®, we carried out 4 treatments with four repetitions. Specifically, there were three doses compared with the MAFA biostimulant (200, 150 and 100 mL for each 100 L of water) and the non-application of BALANCE® (blank). Foliar applications were made of each treatment with BALANCE® in bloom, fruit setting and grain filling. As on other occasions, this study has been carried out by the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, under the direction of professor-researcher Dr. Hermilo Sánchez.

As we will see below, the BALANCE® biostimulant is highly effective for growing corn.

BALANCE® ACTING AS A POWERFUL GROWTH REGULATOR FOR CORN

Treatments with the three proposed doses of BALANCE® produced more biomass and a higher yield in the different evaluations, compared to the plants that are not treated with BALANCE®.
The three doses of BALANCE® (100, 150 and 200 mL per 100 L of water) achieved the best results in the evaluated variables such as higher dry weight in biomass, dry weight of root biomass, higher yield in ton/ha and higher weight per 1,000 grains.
Without phytotoxic effects in any doses of BALANCE®, the biostimulant increased the yield in ton/hectare and had a very favorable impact on the quality characteristics of the crop.
