Silage corn with foliar treatment

Silage corn is an important agricultural crop feed to livestock in the United States. Corn grown in Washington State treated with penergetic shows many advantages over Control.


Remarkable first-year results in corn

When Peter Gines walked into his corn fields previously foliar sprayed with penergetic p, he was amazed at what he saw. He compared the penergetic treated corn to the untreated field that he owns just down the road (same variety). "I might have the tallest corn in the valley!” he said in mid-July. Now he knows why penergetic products are being used in over 30 countries.


Treatment

100g/ac (250g/ha)   penergetic p as foliar treatment


Observations approx. 4 weeks before harvest

  • 100% pollination
  • Significantly better established root system and brace roots
  • Larger diameter of corn stalks (approx. 20% larger)
  • Approx. 6 times more stalks with fully developed 2nd ears
  • Bigger cobs, 13% more and bigger kernels

As Peter says: “Of course harvest weights and lab testing will tell the true story, but if the treated field continues to show this much difference compared to the untreated field, I would expect to see a sizeable difference in yield (and quality) between the two fields.” He was right, see the harvest results below!
