Average of All Crops
The above bar chart encompasses over 90 different research trials that Wolf Trax has done, either privately or through third party sources. Combined root length of both the main and secondary roots of PROTINUS-treated seed versus an untreated check was measured by a WinRHIZO machine at a prescribed date after initial emergence (this date varied by trial and by crop type). When averaged out, PROTINUS-treated seed had 10% higher total root length than the untreated check. This demonstrates that PROTINUS-treated seed can lead to increases in root growth, helping the plant better forage for needed nutrients and moisture.
Summary of Trial Results
PROTINUS has an extensive research and evaluation program, spanning many countries, soil conditions, climatic conditions and crops. Following is an example of the different crops and conditions that the root length of PROTINUS-treated seed has been tested under.
- Crops: Alfalfa, Bermudagrass, Corn, Cotton, Kale, Orchardgrass, Small Grains, Soybeans and Spinach
- DAE: Ranges from 2 to 14 days
- Soil Conditions: nutrient poor and nutrient rich combinations of clay and sandy loam soils
- Climatic Conditions: normal (ideal), cold nights/warm days, cold soil, deep seeded cold soil, drought (normal watering to a certain stage and then water withdrawn until the wilt stage) and dry seeding conditions
