Maximizing Success: 2023 Crop Yield Enhancement and ROI Insights

Growers are increasingly turning to innovative, sustainable solutions in their search to enhance crop yields and ROI. The focus is on technologies that not only boost productivity but also align with environmental stewardship. Biodegradable polymers represent a promising advancement, marking a shift towards more efficient and sustainable farming practices. 

Polyaspartate: The Science Behind Yield Enhancement

At the heart of Soltellus™ Polymer is polyaspartate, a biodegradable polymer that enhances nutrient delivery systems in agriculture. Its ability to bind nutrients effectively in the soil ensures that plants receive the nourishment they need, when they need it. This optimal nutrient availability is key to enhancing plant growth and significantly contributes to increased crop yields.

The Impact of Soltellus on Crop Yields and ROI

In 2023, field trials were conducted a 5 sites around the Midwest (Fig. 1). Monoammonium phosphate (MAP) fertilizer coated with Soltellus at three rates and a control of uncoated MAP were applied to individual plots in the replicated trials. The mid-rate (0.5 gal/acre-also the recommended label rate) was pinpointed as the target to maximize nutrient efficiency and microbial health benefits.

Soltellus delivered a respectable 6.2 bushels per acre increase in corn yields (Fig. 2). This yield boost surpassed the performance of three other experimental products, highlighting Soltellus as the superior solution for enhancing crop productivity. 

The financial implications of adopting Soltellus are equally compelling. The 2023 trials demonstrated an average return on investment (ROI) of 3.5 times across all sites. Such a significant return underscores Soltellus's economic viability and role in ensuring the financial sustainability of farming operations.
