Vitazyme on Barley – 2010, Vinnytsia, Ukraine

This replicated Ukrainian Vitazyme trial with spring barley, using three barley varieties, showed that the product in all cases benefitted the yield, profitability, and quality of the grain.  Yields were increased by from 16 to 20% with the seed treatment, and by 25 to 29% by the seed plus foliar treatment. Crude protein was generally decreased — a favorable result — by from 0.1 to 0.6 percentage point, except in one instance, by Vitazyme, while test weight was improved by 15 to 17 grams/liter by the seed treatment, and by 20 to 24 grams/liter by the seed plus foliar treatments. Weight for 1,000 grains like wise was raised by both treatments, by from 1.1 to 2.8 grams, more with the two treatments than with just one. These results reveal how valuable Vitazyme is for malting barley production in Ukraine.
