Nutri-Cycle Study

Nutri-Cycle | Biofertilizers


In this trial, Nutri-Cycle was added in the liquid tank with the starter fertilizer. The product was added while filling the tank to make sure the product got mixed well. There were separate tanks for starter fertilizer on the tractor and planter, so the producer was able to switch back and forth from trial to control to have side-by-side comparisons. All the following yields are figured on a dried down basis using the yield formula that Pioneer uses.
