I was averaging 60 bushels per acre where I’m normally at 40-43. The difference is so drastic between Indigo and non-Indigo wheat that the hands running the combine called me to tell me that they thought something was wrong with the meters on the fields. The Indigo Monument is by far the best wheat I have ever harvested, and the custom harvesters I work with say that it is the best wheat in my area – hands down.
We tested Indigo's biological treatment on 300 acres of wheat to start. It was a night and day difference. 10 bushels an acre more than our untreated fields. It even bumped up our variety's protein content, which ended up netting us a 37 cent premium. Next year, guess what we did? Put that seed treatment on all our wheat, and row crop acres too.
Microbes do a lot of great things for plants. They have an activity which lowers stress levels. They help fight off pathogens. They really are unique organisms that mother nature has chosen to put inside of plants.
A characteristic of natural microbes that makes them more powerful than traditional crop technologies like chemistries and GMOs is their ability to respond rapidly to their environment. Whether it’s cool, hot, wet, or dry, they respond. And they do so within seconds.
We had tried various biologicals in the past with no consistent yield advantages for our customers. We trialed biotrinsic® this year and could see differences from the start in early seed vigor and bigger roots. We were impressed to see yield advantages across multiple counties and growing conditions. It seems to be a very consistent product adding and protecting yield through various environments.
