Vermaktiv Stimul Agriculture
The substance promotes faster growth of green areas by up to 36% and positively influences the supply of necessary nutrients. Vermaktiv Stimul increases the growth capacity throughout the growing season, including a transient periods of drought. It promotes the growth of soil bacteria and other microorganisms that accelerate the decomposition of organic matter. Vermaktiv Stimul promotes the breakdown of old inorganic fertilizers and other cumulated inorganic compounds into available plant nutrients. This removes salinisation and restores biologically depleted soil.
The ideal pathway of the substance into the soil is through the above-ground part of the plant.
In 2011, Vermaktiv Stimul was applied to maize of the Amoroso variety in a total area of 82 ha in a 1: 250 dilution ratio with the agricultural cooperative Podlipan Vítice, of which 60 ha was left as a control without application. The application was carried out on 22 ha.
Throughout the trial, the vegetation in the applied area had a visible difference in the growth of green matter (height of vegetation, deeper coloration and width of the stem) compared to the control. The vegetation stage of flowering was 3 – 4 days earlier and subsequent earlier formation of the ear compared to the control.
At a time when the cob size reached 40% of the final size (BBCH 74), a dry matter collection was performed. Treated plants showed a 32% higher dry matter content compared to the untreated control.
The yield was 28% higher in the treated areas compared to the untreated control.
The harvested maize grain from the treated area had 10% less moisture than the untreated control grain.
Activity of Vermaktiv Stimul
Vermaktiv Stimul improves soil quality and promotes the increase of soil bacteria and other microorganisms that accelerate the degradation processes of organic matter. It breaks down the individual minerals so that they can be better absorbed by the root system. This increases the production of humus every year. Vermaktiv Stimul can increase the humus content in the soil by up to 50% in 2-3 years. Due to the increase in soil colloids, organic matter attracts important nutrients and prevents their loss from the ecosystem, for example by leaching. It further improves soil properties such as thermal conductivity, aeration, and water-binding ability, etc.
