From a StollerUSA press release

Houston, Texas, January 25, 2010 -- StollerUSA has pushed soybean yield limits to record-breaking levels. Stoller’s 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 166 bu/acre.

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.”
