It’s been a difficult growing season, but as harvest wraps up across the nation results with Bio-Forge ST, Bio-Forge and other crop performance products from StollerUSA are showing impressive yields.
Multiple trials from across the Corn Belt show 5-15 bu/A increases over untreated crops.
We want to hear from you! Share your story with us by emailing pictures and details to email@example.com or posting to our Facebook page.
Be sure to include your name, the date(s) and rate(s) of each application of Bio-Forge ST and/or Bio-Forge along with the difference Bio-Forge made in your crops (i.e., faster emergence, healthier plants, tolerance to stress, more root structure, plants stay greener longer, more rows per ear, more pods, increased yield vs. check, etc.).

The tour of grower visits continue as the StollerUSA crew headed to Western Kansas this week to visit with another innovative farmer near Montezuma. Josh Koehn runs 8,000 acres of corn, wheat and milo each year. Facing hot, dry weather seems to be the pattern over the last few years in Kansas. Combine that with high winds and the stage is set for more plant stress than most can handle.
After hearing a StollerUSA progressive grower speak two years ago about Bio-Forge®, Josh went to his dealer asking for help getting a StollerUSA program on his acres. Farming irrigated and dryland crops he was anxious to try something new in order to help minimize stress on his crops each summer.
In 2012 Josh set a record on his operation and won a National Corn Growers Association state contest with 306 bu/acre corn. This was also the first year he used Bio-Forge. In 2013 as we went to visit him the question arose about what he’s aiming for this year.
His reply, “350 bu/acre. I put Bio-Forge on every acre.”
It’s clear he’s setting his sights high, but with success like he’s having it’s a no brainer. Bio-Forge, X-Cyte™ and Sugar Mover™ have all been applied to his crops offering season long relief from high temperatures and something unfamiliar cold, wet springs. Usually little rain per season is an issue, but now it seems Western Kansas has had timely rain and crops are looking even better.
Tune in as Josh begins to harvest next month we’ll post yield results.
