Vitazyme on Wheat – 2008, Vinnytsia, Ukraine
Vitazyme applied twice during during the spring growth period resulted in a substantial 6 to 11% increase in yield; Podolyanka variety gave the highest increase, that resulted in a 747 hrn/ha income increase. The quality of the grain was also improved with Vitazyme, the gluten content increasing from 0.5 to 1.0 percentage points, and crude protein from 0.5 to 0.8%. These results prove that this crop treatment is highly effective for improving the yield, quality, and income of winter wheat in Ukraine on these gray forest steppe soils. Had Vitazyme been applied to the seeds in the fall, or to the newly emerged plants, it is likely that the results would have been even more favorable than with only spring applications.
