Tested across the U.S. Midwest under a wide variety of field and fertility conditions, SabrEx™ for Corn has been shown to create more robust root systems, induce resistance to plant stresses like dry weather or disease, and increase water and nutrient efficiency. Yield data over the last 4 years have averaged an 8.53 bu/a yield increase. That’s a 6:1 return on investment.
SabrEx™ for Corn is a unique formulation of two (2) carefully selected, specific, patent pending, proprietary biological fungi strains called Trichoderma. Trichoderma colonizes with the plants root system and develops a symbiotic relationship with the plant. The Trichoderma feed from the starches and sugars produced by the plant; while exuding beneficial enzymes and proteins for the host plants use. As a result the plant produces a larger root system, improves resistance to stresses such as diseases, and improves its nitrogen and water use efficiency, thus resulting in higher yields.
Benefits of SabrEx™
The Trichoderma found in SabrEx™ for Corn stimulates root growth, competes with root pathogens, enhances nutrient utilization, and increases stress tolerances. In the summer of 2012 SabrEx™ for Corn was put to the test during drought conditions and performed remarkably.
Larger Root System
The biologicals found in SabrEx™ for Corn colonizes the crop root system, induces altered gene expression through association with the host plant, and affects changes in plant physiology. This root colonization can affect the physiology of the whole plant, including the root system and even foliar/leaf biology.
The number one advantage of treating seeds with SabrEx™ for Corn is the yield increase. Over the past 4 years ABM™ has been conducting field tests on over 380 plots, resulting in a average yield increase of 8.53 bu/a.
