This year, make early and healthy plant growth a top priority. It can mean the difference between raising a crop that fails to meet expectations and growing one that surpasses them.
To give corn the right start, BigYield.us is introducing the BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn seed treatment. The product positions key micronutrients where seed and seedlings need them: near the seed itself. With a healthy start, the result is better crop performance not only in the field but also at harvest. BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn uses proprietary technology designed to enhance seedling vigor, reduce the impact of stress on seedlings and increase yields. Tests have shown that corn yields increase by as much as 10 percent when the seed is treated with BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn.
The nutrient blend in BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn provides calcium, magnesium, sulfur, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc. For corn, the zinc is particularly important. A deficiency could cause corn to be stunted because the zinc supports vital metabolic reactions, growth and development. It also has a role in plants forming carbohydrates, protein and chlorophyll, according to a guide from the University of Minnesota.
The University of Minnesota shares that if corn starts the season with a zinc deficiency, then it may continue to show deficiency symptoms later into the growing season. At BigYield.us, we recommend proper micronutrient supplementation at planting to limit the onset of a deficiency, its symptoms and its negative effects.
The BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn seed treatment encourages good emergence and seedling vigor, strong root and stem growth, healthy root hair development and enhanced nutrient uptake. In this video, you can watch the BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn treatment encouraging corn emergence. This story from Farm & Ranch Guide shares the importance of uniform emergence when growing corn.
You can use BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn as a dry planter box treatment. The recommended application rate is 8 ounces per 100 pounds of seed.
