I talked my Cps salesman into doing a test on wheat . Doing it in split application one now one at flowering . Straight28-0-0 15 lbs per. Black.max not sure exactly what in it. Some radiate which isn't fertilizer or micros and awaken which is more micros. See how it pans out at harvest with the weight wagon and protein. If there's time going to do some on canola as well. And figure what my gains over cost are in the end.
Used ATP Releaf Platinum, it has a zinc component, dont see it on their website though. I put MESZ in seed row too. Flax is recovering nicely today, perhaps a wee bit better in areas that got foliar but the land is quite variable so can just as well chalk it up to that. Sprayed at 8 gal/ac with rain water.
your flax should bounce back much quicker from the herbicide stress under the micro addition without a doubt. This extra jump in reduced lag pays. also your untreated will remained stunted weakened and injured longer allowing pasmo to take a foothold in your flax and can cause some bad yield loss in my experience. fyi zn applied at flower instead of a fungicide pushes the plants natural auxins in a plant. (hormone responsible for stimulating growth and triggering immune system)
So I received some data on the feild trials we did on Cps micro/plant hormone? Spray mixes vs straight 28-0-0. I don't have the yeild data off my monitors yet but the gist of what the operators said was the straight 28 did better. Anyway here are the protein and test weights. These were 40 acre plots so I hope the yeild maps will show a difference.
CHECK pro 14.9 W 67.5
BLACK LABLE pro 15.3 W 67.5
AWAKEN pro 14.6
RADIATE pro 15 w 67.5
28-0-0 pro 15.6 w16.3
These were all sprayed right after herbicides. In the summer we had tissue samples done and on all of them it showed my micros all to be in the "suggested" limits . We were supposed to do two passes one again with fungicides but we ran out of time in July. Anyway once I have the yeild maps processed I'll see what if any yeild increase was shown
