GrowthfulTM is an auxiliary soil amendment that helps grow bigger
crops faster and increases crop yields, which means getting to the
market faster than your competition.

Early Season Emergence & Root Development

CrownfxTM promotes root development including early season lateral roots which provides necessary support for tillering and shoot development. Avoiding propiconazole during this phase is critical as a multispectral antimicrobial will terminate the symbiotic bonds with the plant

Faster Canopy

By supporting increased tillering and leaf surface area canopy can be established earlier. This can have an impact on weed pressures and moisture retention in the field.

Larger Flag Leaves

Increased flag leaf surface area is directly linked to energy production during reproduction. This is critical to support the production of energy and carbohydrates for yield.

Increased Uniformity at Harvest and Protein Increases

Plant height is typically increased and shows increased uniformity of height and reduced lodging due to increased support in the field. Protein levels are supported through the increase in metabolic processing in the plant. Fertility management is recommended to maximize protein levels realized at harvest.

Increased Straw Residues Post Harvest

The increase in head bearing tillers creates the opportunity for increased straw and residues in the field post harvest.

2020 Spring Barley Treatment Study

Location: Aberdeen, ID

August 7th
Combine Grain Yield Results

Five replications of each seed treatment were harvested side-by-side across the circle and weighed. Results correlated with hand pulled results.

412.1 lbs. or 6.3% Yield Increase for Treated Replications

Clean Grain Percent Crude Protein Analysis

Five replications of each seed treatment were harvested side-by-side across the circle and weighed. Results
correlated with hand pulled results.  During harvest samples were pulled from each side-by-side replication and analyzed for crude protein (hull on) by wet chemical analysis.

5.92 percentage points or a 36.9% increase in crude protein for treated replications
