Every grower knows that higher seeding rates can give greater yields—-if there is not too much stress between the plants where higher plant populations exist.
Research shows that Bio-Forge will relieve the inter-plant stresses during stress conditions. It is under such conditions, that Bio-Forge will give the highest percentage yield increase over the control.
Corn: Plant population should be above 31,000 plants per acre.
Soybeans: Plant population should be above 220,000 plants per acre.
Dr. Ron Heiniger’s research work at North Carolina State University concludes that sunlight is critical to high population planted corn and other plants. Very few people, however, realize it is the amount of shade that causes plants to grow the way they do. The thicker the plant population, the higher the shading is in the canopy of the crop.
One of the things that limit fruit yields on fruit trees is shade. This is why fruit tree growers have to prune the crop. It is not to allow in more sun, as much as it is to reduce the amount of shade where auxins flow. Sunlight tends to neutralize the movement of auxins within any plant. Bio-Forge also acts as a neutralizing element for maximum growth in high density planting situations.
