In search of solutions to water stress
Looking for a solution, Patrick Mounier turned to Best-a-corn just over a year ago. He tested the product on large surface areas. “From the very first use, I noticed differences between the plots treated with Best-a and the others, but I didn’t measure the final result,” he says.
Keen to repeat the experience, Patrick conducted trials on strips of homogeneous soil, then measured yields at harvest. His verdict speaks for itself: “during growth, the differences weren’t obvious, but at harvest time, the yield sensor clearly showed a difference between the control and the corn protected by Best-a.”
Best-a corn is now a basic investment in every corn crop itinerary
The results are an extra 1,000 kilograms per hectare. “With an average gain of €200 per hectare, this represents three to four times the investment in the product,” enthuses Patrick. “What’s more, no additional applications are needed since you can easily apply BEST-a at the same time as another product in the corn crop itinerary.”
From now on, Best-a corn will be a standard investment for all Patrick Mounier’s corn production operations, both on his own plots and at his customers’ farms. “I’m also very interested in the new Elicit Plant products for sunflowers and cereals. If they’re equally effective, I’ll be tempted to apply them across the board,” he assures us.
