Higher Yielding Cereal Crops

 

Minimum phosphorus levels are essential for production crops. Much of Australia’s soils have insufficient available phosphorus for commercial crop production. This is compensated for with heavy applications of fertilizers.

An adequate supply of nitrogen is also necessary and together with good rainfall is the key component that determines grain protein.

Hibrix cereal crops have;

  • Increased utilisation of subsurface moisture
  • Increased malic acid production for phosphate sequestration
  • Increased uptake of nutrients with the Hibrix Chelator
  • Reduced plant stress from dry and temperature extremes
  • Better Yields, Higher profits.

Hibrix crops develop significantly more fine root hairs. Root hairs have a massive surface area resulting in better water utilization and nutrient uptake.

Another function of root hairs is the production and secretion of malic acid. Once in the soil malic acid will dissolve locked up phosphorus (and other trace elements) making it available for uptake into the plant.

During extended dry periods the growth of Hibrix treated crops exceed other crops because they are better able to utilize any sub-surface moisture. This results in good yields from a mediocre season.

In 2014 we have started trials with a product design to raise the sugar content of the crop. We are hoping to see continued growth through periods of frost. This product is only in a very preliminary stage of efficacy testing. If you would like be part of the trial please get in touch with us.
