Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural solutions enhance nutrient uptake in plants. Our products stimulate plant physiology to make the best possible use of available essential nutrients. This is true in adequate soil fertility situations as well as in reduced fertility situations.
USE ACADIAN PLANT HEALTH™ CROP CARE PRODUCTS TO HELP ROOT UPTAKE AND ABSORPTION OF THE FOLLOWING PLANT ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS:
SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN, FIELD-TESTED SOLUTIONS
BLUEBERRY FIELD TRIAL
BLUEBERRY FIELD TRIAL ‘SAN JOAQUIN AND ABUNDANCE’
CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES
In this blueberry trial, applications of an Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural product led to increased levels of zinc, boron, iron and manganese in treated plots. In this trial, both control plots and treated plots were exposed to the same soil and fertility programs, but treated plants had higher levels of key nutrients in leaf tissues.
WATERMELON UNIVERSITY TRIAL
WATERMELON UNIVERSITY TRIAL ‘CRIMSON SWEET’
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND, UNITED STATES
In this watermelon trial, applications of an Acadian product led to an improvement in crop yields, under both standard fertility and reduced nitrogen programs. These results suggest that, when a reduced nitrogen program is used, applications of an Acadian agricultural product may help recover potential losses in crop yield.
Note: The standard fertility program included nitrogen at a rate of 150 lbs/acre (168 kg/ha), while the reduced nitrogen program included nitrogen at a rate of 100 lbs/acre (112 kg/ha). The plot size was 4 rows of 30.5 meters x 1.8 meters (100 feet x 6 feet).
LETTUCE FIELD TRIALS
LETTUCE FIELD TRIALS ‘MULTIPLE VARIETIES’
MULTIPLE LOCATIONS, UNITED STATES
In these lettuce trials, applications of an Acadian agricultural product led to an improvement in crop yields, under both standard fertility and reduced nitrogen programs.
The pictures above were taken during one of these trials. Each box contains the same number of lettuce heads and it is evident that, when an Acadian product was added to a standard crop fertility program, lettuce heads were bigger and more developed at harvest time.
CORN FIELD TRIALS
CORN FIELD TRIALS
NORTH CAROLINA AND WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES
These corn trials support the idea that Acadian agricultural products help your crop make the best possible use of available nitrogen. Not only have we seen this on corn and watermelon, but we have also seen this across a wide range of other crops including lettuce, cucurbits, onion and fruiting vegetables.
Making the best use of available nitrogen is important, regardless of a farmer’s fertility practices. If nitrogen is abundant, it is important that the nitrogen is taken up into the plant, contributing to high yields, and not leaching. If nitrogen fertility is low, it is extremely important that the crop makes the best possible use of what is available. Use Acadian products to ensure that available nitrogen is optimized and your crop’s production is at its best.
