Vitazyme on Wheat – 2010-Pitrufquen, Chile

In this Vitazyme study in Chile, evaluating the effects of the product on wheat treated with 1.0 and/or 1.5 liters/ha applied once or twice with either 50% or 100% of the recommended N, the 1.0 and 1.5 liter/ha rates applied at the BBCH14 stage produced 7 to 8% yield increases. The 1.5 liters/ha rate applied twice (100% N) produced a 4% yield improvement, while a 50% fertilizer N reduction increased the yield by 8%; this was the most profitable treatment of all seven. Interestingly, these yield responses were not a reflection of tillers per plant, since all Vitazyme treatments reduced tillering. The yield improvement must have been due to larger heads and greater grain weight from Vitazyme application. This study proves the effectiveness of Vitazyme use on wheat in Chile.
