Improving root health can be as simple as reducing your use of heavy farm equipment. Compaction, most often caused by overuse of agricultural equipment, will reduce your crop’s ability to thrive and produce high crop yields.
To reduce compaction, look for ways to reduce tillage such as adding Pro-Soil agricultural products to your farm input regimen. When use of heavy farm equipment is reduced, soil porosity increases allowing for deeper, healthier root structure formation. This is a must if you expect your crop to produce adequate yields.
One particularly promising approach to improving plant root health involves the development and use of naturally occurring, organic materials, or “Biostimulants,” that influence the growth and development of plants by affecting control mechanisms within the plants or that act synergistically with nutrients to improve uptake and availability. While metabolism provides the power and building blocks necessary to sustain plant life, it is the endogenous Biostimulants (those produced within the plant itself), that regulate the speed of growth and orchestrate the various parts to produce the form we recognize as a plant. Such materials, which have also been termed plant hormones, phytohormones, or plant growth regulators, have the potential to mediate a wide range of processes including seed germination, root and shoot growth, vegetative growth, flowering, fruit set, growth and development, in such a way as to improve overall production.
There are a number of methods that can be used to increase your soybean crop yield this season. Watch the following Pro-Soil Agricultural Solutions video below to learn about increasing your own crop. Consider utilizing Pro-Soil agricultural products to supplement your existing fertilizer regimen, and contact us for specific application guidelines.
Pro-Soil biological soil amendments work by making your existing fertilizer regimen more effective. It softens the topsoil and makes it more porous, allowing your soybean crop to develop a deeper, stronger root system. With the increased root structure, your soybean crop will pull in more water and nutrients, resulting in an improved harvest. Studies have also shown that soybean farmers are able to achieve better results with a 10% reduction in fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides in first season and 30% or more in three years
If you are a soybean farmer who is looking to increase your soybean yield through the use of soil amendments, call Pro-Soil Ag Solutions. At Pro-Soil agricultural solutions, we create our farm biologicals with farmers like you in mind. By using Pro-Soil agricultural products, you are ensuring that you soybean crop will develop a deeper, stronger root system and your results will reflect this. In study after study, soybean farmers have reported increased bean weight, increased pod fill, increased soybean yield, and even reduced insect damage. In independent, replicated trials on Corn and Soybeans conducted by Phoenix Technologies in Southwestern Kansas in 2008, Pro-Soil FOUNDATION improved yield performance by as much 11% –for on 8 to 1 return on investment.
Remember, a healthy root system is necessary for a productive crop! Using Pro-Soil agricultural products and reducing usage of heavy farm equipment can be the difference between an average soybean yield and a new record crop.
