Field Study

Vitazyme on Corn – 2010, Cedar Falls, Iowa

This non-GMO replicated corn trial from eastern Iowa proved that Vitazyme A and Vitazyme B formulations both substantially and statistically increased grain yield, by 15.6 bu/acre (10%) and 13.0 bu/acre (8%), respectively. Both of these treatments, applied at planting and at the V8 stage at 13 oz/acre, also increased the ash level of the grain. The increases were 0.56 and 0.23 percentage points, respectively, great increases in the minerals essential for plant growth.
Thus, the growth and health-imparting values of these treat- ments should be apparent. All other treatments also increased crop yield by 4 to 7%, and grain ash in these treatments was raised by 0.11 to 0.19 percentage point.
Of special interest in the fact that a 50% nitrogen application, along with two Vitazyme A applications, improved yield by 10.8 bu/acre over the 100% nitrogen control without Vitazyme. This result shows the nitrogen utilization improvement usually noted with Vitazyme.
