Trial Results & Farmers' Experiences

Information from the season 2017

FIX-H+N

Results of two independent field trials collected in the sunflower growths during the season 2017.

A1) Results from various localities operating under co-op Kámen: observing the total yield
(n=12, values are in t/ha)

 

A2) Results from various localities operating under co-op Kámen: observing the proportion of dry matter
(n=12, values represent weight percentages)

 

B1) Results of a verification experiments carried out by CULS (Červený Újezd): observing the total yield
(n=4, values are in t/ha)

 

B2) Results of a verification experiments carried out by CULS (Červený Újezd): observing the proportion of dry matter
(n=4, values represent weight percentages)

 
Both independent sets of experiments showed an improvement in overall yield. Not only did the amount of total biomass increase after the application of FIX-H+N, but it was also richer in dry matter.

PROMETHEUS, sunflower

Results of experiments in sunflower crops from season 2017. Charts A1-A3 illustrate the reduced development of diseases in treated sunflower; numbers represent the percentage of infested plants.

A1) Sclerotinia-induced rot of the stem during the maturing phase

  • Velké Pavlovice
  • Ratíškovice
  • Average
 

A2) Phoma-induced blackleg during the maturing phase

  • Velké Pavlovice
  • Ratíškovice
  • Average
 

A3) Verticillium wilt during the maturing phase, data come from the Ratíškovice locality

 

B) Independent trials in sunflower crops running in 2017: yield tracking

  • Velké Pavlovice
  • Ratíškovice
  • Average
  • (Values are in t/ha)
 

On both sites, an increase in revenue was observed after the administration of Prometheus. The difference was even more pronounced after combining of Prometheus and fungicide.

Sclerotinia-induced rot, Phoma-induced blackleg, and verticillium wilt are fungal diseases that have a significant negative impact on the yields of sunflower. Our experiments show that all these diseases can be greatly suppressed by the use of Prometheus or even more prominently by the combination of Prometheus and fungicide.

HIRUNDO

Results from the experimental sites operating under Roštěnice Ltd., Vyškov and co-op Kokory, collected in the last four years

A) Roštěnice Ltd., Vyškov: trial results from the season 2017
(n=1, values are in t/ha and percentage of control)

 

B) Co-op Kokory - results of experiments from the years 2015-2017
(n=5, values are in t/ha and percentage of control, control was calculated as the average yield of the cooperative)

 
An increase in yield of oilseed rape was achieved both on the experimental plots of Roštěnice Ltd., Vyškov in 2017, and in the long-term average (2015-2017) of the experiments from the co-op Kokory.

PROMETHEUS, poppyseed

Results of independent trials conducted in the poppyseed growth in 2017 by OSEVA Development and Research Ltd.

  • Control plots
  • Treated by PROMETHEUS
  • (results are in t/ha)
 

Treated vegetation showed better health and yield increase on all monitored areas. In average, the yield has risen by 12.4%.

Information from the season 2016

PROMETHEUS, oilseed rape

ZD Borotín 2016: observing the yield and the degree of infestation by the Sclerotinia mould, with the primary infection from the soil (i.e. the direct attack on the root collars and roots) especially kept in mind.

A) Ammount of infested plants

  • Number of plants in each of these categories:
  • Healthy
  • Infested otherwise
  • Infested by the primary infection from the soil
 

B) Yield per treatment (in t/ha and as a percentage of the control value)

 
In both treated variants, the degree of infestation dropped by 70% and total yields were increased by 5%.

PROMETHEUS, poppyseed

Results of field trials collected in the poppyseed growths during the season 2016.

A) Three independent poppy-field trials conducted by OSEVA Development and Research Ltd. in 2016

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: PROMETHEUS
  • (results are in t/ha)
 

B) Field trial in Krucemburk 2016, carried out in conditions of lowered nitrogen supply (80 kg/ha)

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: PROMETHEUS
  • (results are in t/ha)
 
On all monitored localities, as well as in both tested varieties, the treated stand showed an improved health and a significant increase in yield. The positive outcome under the conditions of reduced dose of nitrogen was especially significant, which can be ascribed to the improved availability of nutrients in the soil.

PROMETHEUS, sunflower

Results of field trials collected in the sunflower growths during the season 2016.

A) Three independent sunflower-field trials, carried out in the season 2016: observing the total yield

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: PROMETHEUS
  • (results are in t/ha)
 

The average yield increased by 10.5% in the treated variants.

B) Occurrence of selected fungal diseases in sunflower; Experiment Station ÚKZÚZ Kujavy

  • Total infestation (all diseases)
  • Alternaria (dark spots) on the stem
  • Sclerotinia on the stem
 

Bacteria act against fungal diseases foremost in the roots, but also the aboveground parts are healthier, due to the induced protection.

C) Monitoring the oil content of achenes in two independent experiments

  • SPZO Trials:
  • Velké Pavlovice
  • Ratíškovice
 

Of all observed variants of treatment, the highest values of oilness were achieved in response to the application of Prometheus

D) Induced protection of plants caused by the bacteria in the Prometheus amendment

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: PROMETHEUS
  • (Figures stand for the percentage of infested plants)
 

After the application of Prometheus, the health conditions in the sunflower growth improved even without the use of fungicides.

FIX-H+N

Results of field trials collected in the maize growths during the season 2016.

A) Monitoring the yield of two varieties of grain maize

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: PROMETHEUS
  • (results are in t/ha)
 

B) The proportion of starch in the grain (values represent percentages)

 

C) The proportion of dry matter in the plant

  • Control plots
  • Treatment: FIX-H+N
  • (results are in t/ha)
 

D) Overall yield of the silage maize (silage/dry matter is presented in t/ha and as a percentage of the control value)

 
All monitored parameters of the yield in all evaluated experiments showed an increase.

HIRUNDO

ZD Kokory 2016, testing the HIRUNDO amendment in the rapeseed growths (in t/ha and as a percentage of the control value)

XXX

In accordance with the season 2015, we achieved a significant increase in yield.

Information from the seazon 2015

Once again, it was confirmed by the results of field experiments that the poppy responds to various intensification factors by increasing the agricultural yields.

  • Locality Červený Újezd: this experiment exhibited an increment in agricultural yields by 2 670 Kč/ha ; after the combined treatment by Prometheus + Dithane, the average yield grew by 5 590 Kč/ha .
  • Locality Krucemburk: during this experiment, the combined treatment by DASA + Prometheus was proven to be the most effective; its yield increment recalculated to Kč/ha ( 70 080 Kč/ha ) was higher in comparison with both application of Prometheus alone and simple fertilization.

Information from the season 2014

In this very successful year with ideal weather conditions, we repeatedly recevied positive reference to the application of Prometheus:

  • Experimental station Kluky: Yield increase compared to the untreated variant by 6%
  • Yield measurments, obtained from 4 farmers participating in the evaluation, show average increment 8.5% in the variant treated by the Prometheus amendment.
In 2014, we managed to extend the registration of PROMETHEUS®CZ for the use in poppy fields.

CF Kojčice

agronomist Ing. Milan Vaněček

„I am experiencing troubles with pH. If the product has a positive effect on pH increment, I would fancy that a lot. We are going to split our fields half and half and spray PROMETHEUS on one of them. Let the pH be checked afterwards - I'm really looking forward the outcome.“
