At The Farm Research Center in Garden City, Mo., our BigYield.us team has finished the fall harvest and crunched the data. Based on the results, we had some big yields and returns!
In upcoming emails, we’ll share our results with you. To us, researching various products and production approaches and then sharing our results are important. We want to provide information and insights that can reduce your costs, make your operation more efficient and increase your bottom line.
BigSweetYield was one product tested in our soybean trials. It’s a cold-processed, glucose-based sweetener, so it supplies carbohydrates in a form that’s quickly available to plants. BigSweetYield is designed to provide energy to crops, boost crop Brix levels, reduce insect pressure and increase herbicide efficacy.
Based on research results from the past three years, BigSweetYield applications have also consistently boosted yields. When applying BigSweetYield once a season, yield gains were 3 bushels per acre at minimum and 5 bushels per acre at maximum between 2014 and 2016. Assuming a $9.90 soybean price, return on the investment would total $26.80 per acre and $46.60 per acre, respectively.
When applying BigSweetYield three times in a season, the yield increase was 7 bushels at minimum and 16 bushels at maximum. Again, assuming a $9.90 soybean price, the return on investment would total $60.60 per acre and $149.70 per acre, respectively.
In addition to its use in soybeans, BigSweetYield has yield-boosting potential in corn and wheat. At BigYield.us, we apply BigSweetYield anytime we plan a trip across a field. For more application recommendations by crop, check out our BigSweetYield page online.
