Diature™ Soil Conditioner results

Spring barley (11 weeks) grown in soil with Diature™ @ 18kg /acre

 Leaf Mineral Concentration for barley as % preferred level

In the areas treated with Diature™ there was a marked increase in uptake by the foliage of several elements analysed, at 11 weeks, notably calcium, but also nitrogen, sulphur, magnesium, manganese, boron, copper and zinc. This increase had also been noted at 8 weeks. Plants grown in the presence of Diature™ grew taller, and roots were longer (4&5)

Foliage - 11 Weeks

Foliage - 8 Weeks

The trial was  repeated with a crop of forage maize. Increase in growth was noted again and by harvest time a marked increase in fresh and dry weights were found where Diature™ had been applied. Stems and roots were stronger, and active uptake of several elements was noted again, where DE was applied(6). Digestibility was also increased,measured as Dry matter % solubility. Plants often bore two good pods
