Case Studies from the 2019 Growing Season
2019 & 2020 — Growing Season Challenges
The 2019 growing season was abnormally wet and cool with very few days of full sun early in the growing season. Beyond saturated soils, cool and cloudy days were more frequent than sunny days. Under these conditions, photosynthesis rates decline lowering yield potential. Although not as wet, 2020 has seen a stretch of cool, wet, cloudy weather causing similar issues. One of the focuses of Bio Ag Management is to understand and implement the use of biostimulants along with mineral nutrition to maximize plant health and mitigate plant stress. In 2019 Bio Ag Management ran trials that tested the response of biostimulants coupled with balanced mineral nutrition. The results are below.
