YieldOn is a combination of plant extracts with micronutrients applied relatively late in the season designed to transfer plant assimilates and sugars from the leaf and stem into the grain – put the yield on. And apparently it does. “We’re really rather excited about YieldOn,” says Hutchinsons’ technical manager Dick Neale. “It’s a biostimulant that’s more often than not given us a significant yield response in small-plot trials – that’s rare.” Valagro scientists applied new techniques to the study of plant extracts. Dr Mark Glover looks after the biological, adjuvant and micronutrient portfolio at Agrii. “We’re still learning with biostimulants, and they’re no magic bullet. But in 2018, a year when a lot of products appeared to perform in trials, YieldOn was one that did so significantly.” YieldOn is a new combination of three different plant extracts, including seaweed, designed specifically to “switch on” yield explains Valagro UK…
