Vitazyme on Corn – 2013-Aurora, South Dakota

This corn trial with Vitazyme at two nitrogen levels, near Brookings, South Dakota, revealed that Vitazyme significantly improved corn yield at the 50% N level. This yield was only 2.1 bu/acre less than the 100% N treatment without Vitazyme, and not significantly different from it. This reveals the improved nitrogen efficiency often noted with the use of this product. The 100% N level gave a 2% (2.9 bu/acre) yield increase for Vitazyme; the two were statistically the same. Grain moisture was not affected by the treatments, but there appeared to be a slight improvement in grain bushel weight with Vitazyme. These results show the excellent value of this program for corn growers in the northern Corn Belt.
