Houston, Texas, January 25, 2010
-- StollerUSA has pushed soybean yield limits
to record-breaking levels.
R&D team used their latest product innovation—a plant hormone formulation
that’s still in the testing phase—to reach a world record soybean yield of
The vernal soybean variety was grown in a controlled,
replicated plot environment. Thirty pounds of nitrogen was applied through
drip irrigation at the time of planting, and again at 30 and 45 days after
planting. Under these conditions the control plants showed a robust yield of
92 bu/acre. When Stoller’s plant hormone formulation, STO-01, was applied at
the R2 stage, the yield jumped by 80% to a 166.8bu/acre – the highest yield
ever achieved in a replicated plot.
“Our mission is to empower plants so the grower can get
the very most out of their seed investment—and that’s exactly what this new
product trial demonstrates,” explains CEO and founder Jerry Stoller. “Our
new product developments are based on Stoller’s genetic expression
technology that has been at work in farm fields for the last four decades.
Our commitment to R&D continues to pay off for progressive farmers looking
to push plant performance to the limit.”
