Field Study

Vitazyme on Wheat – 2010, Pua, Chile

In this wheat study in Chile, using Vitazyme at 1.0 or 1.5 liters/ha shortly after emergence and/or about 18 weeks later, and with or without nitrogen fertilizer, Vitazyme at 1.0 or 1.5 liters/ha, applied shortly after emergence, stimulated tillering by 23 to 26%, and increased yield of the grain by 4 to 8%. Other treatments did not cause increases in growth parameters or yield, especially Treatment 6 which received two 1.5 liter/ha Vitazyme applications. It appears that N fertilizer applications need to be maintained at optimum levels under Chilean conditions for Vitazyme to work best, and a second application later in the season does not add to yield responses. A single Vitazyme application early in the growth period gives the best results, and shows the product’s excellent utility for Chile’s agriculture.
