South African Wheat

Updated: Apr 9

Methods and Material

The trial was conducted on irrigation wheat. One section of a centre pivot received the AdvancedAg (AAG) treatment and the rest of the pivot, that did not receive the AAG treatment, served as the Control. The AAG treatment and control received the same fertilizer program. The AAG treatment received the following additional ACF-SR applications:

  • Pre-plant application of 8 litre/Ha ACF-SR

  • Foliar spray of 8 litre/Ha ACF-SR 5 weeks after emergence.

With the pre-plant application, the product was applied on the soil surface as a full cover spray and washed into the soil with a light irrigation cycle. With the foliar spray the product was diluted in non-chlorinated water and applied as a full cover leaf spray.

Results and Discussion

Earlier in the season it was difficult to see a visual difference, specifically in colour. There was however, a difference in plant height at the spots observed. The treated section was about 10 cm higher than the control. No visual difference in colour was reported through the season.

Leaf Analysis

A leaf sample for the analysis of plant nutrients was taken just before flag leaf stage, see analys
