Field Study

Vitazyme on Corn – 2003, North America

Vitazyme applied to the soil of corn in this greenhouse study produced a nonsignificant increase in plant height of 7%. Applied to the leaves, the height was increased nonsignificantly by 10%. However, Vitazyme applied
to either the soil or leaves increased dry weight accumulations of the corn plants. The soil application increased growth significantly (at P=0.10) by 35%, and almost significantly with a foliar application (17%). It is possible that too few active agents were applied by the foliar applications for a maximum growth response, since only enough product could be applied to fill the leaf whorl; the product would not stick to the slick corn leaves. It is concluded that both soil and foliar applications of Vitazyme are highly effective in increasing the growth rate of corn.
