More Return From Every Acre
Bigger soybean yield potential starts with having more active nitrogen-fixing root nodules. The best way to do this is to ensure there are sufficient numbers of high nitrogen-fixing rhizobia to inoculate each soybean seed.
In more than 195 plot trials across key soybean growling states from 2009-2012, VAULT® HP plus INTEGRAL® produced a 5-to-1 or greater return on investment (ROI) 56% of the time and a 2-to-1 ROI 70% of the time. ROI was determined using an average suggested retail cost of VAULT HP plus INTEGRAL per acre and an average soybean price of $15.50 per bushel.
Just one additional soybean per plant can result in an additional bushel per acre of yield, so maximizing each plant's nitrogen-fixing potential is key to achieving bigger yields.
VAULT HP plus INTEGRAL delivered 4 bushels more per acre yield than noninoculated soybeans and 1 bushel more per acre than seed treated with a major competitive product in independent field tests conducted at 63 locations in 11 states during a two-year period (2010-2011).
Four years of yield trials show that VAULT HP plus INTEGRAL has produced 1.6 to 2.3 more bushels per acre over non-inoculated soybean seed and also produced 0.5 to 1.0 more bushels per acre than seed treated with a leading competitive product.
Vigorous Plants Deliver Higher Yields
Third-party testing in 2010 showed soybean seed treated with VAULT HP had increased plant populations, and more nodes, blooms and pods per plant when compared to non-inoculated beans and a competitive product.
Including VAULT HP plus INTEGRAL as part of a soybean seed treatment can help get plants off to a better start. More vigorous roots and active nitrogen-fixing nodules help produce healthier plants with more pod-making yield potential.
