Crop residue. Stubble. Waste. The leftovers from last season’s harvest could be considered a real nuisance. From increased fertilizer use to tire damage and fuel consumption, undigested residue is a physical tie up of your investment dollars.
But there is another way. Biodyne’s ENVIRONOC 501 Biological Stubble Digester is a broadcast application utilizing high concentrations of more than two dozen naturally-occurring, viable, non-ge-netically modified beneficial microbe strains.
When you end your season with an application of ENVIRONOC 501, you’re already starting the next season off right. Not only are you increasing the workability of the soil and the ease of planting the next crop, but you’re also helping to reduce wear and tear on your tires and equipment caused by typically tough crop residue.
ENVIRONOC 501: Clinical Studies & University Laboratory Testing
The results are impressive. In a laboratory Clinical Trial on GMO corn, inoculation with ENVIRONOC 501 demonstrated 69.2% more organic mass loss than non-inoculation. Numerous land grant university studies have indicated that, based on fertilizer costs, the value of locked up nutrition contained within normal crop residue and stubble can range from $50 to $200 per acre.
RECLAIM up to $200 per acre.
501 boosts the natural process of breaking down and recycling nutrients from residue and stubble back into the soil. Rather than digest the stubble, 501 etches the surface to allow water, air and the beneficial microbes to enter the stalk. Nutrients are released from the inside out, preparing the soil for next season’s crop and building organic matter.
ENVIRONOC 501 is applied at a rate of 16 ounces per acre in the same pass with supplemental nitrogen.
Beneficial cellulose and lignin-degrading microbes increase the release of organic matter and enhance water retention. 501 breaks down the waxy layer, boring into the cellulose and allowing water, air and other mi-crobes to enter. This softens residue but leaves some surface fodder to help resist erosion.
Nutrients contained inside the stalk are un-leashed, replenishing the soil for the next grow-ing season and providing return on investment.
