Invigor 8 and Invigor8 Plus Show Strong Results In Trials
Invigor 8 and Invigor8 Plus Corn Trials
Invigor 8 and Invigor 8 Plus seed treatments were evaluated in ministrip corn genetics trials across the midsouth USA in 2020. Invigor 8 is Genesis Ag’s standard seed treatment. Invigor8 Plus adds a biological component. These treatments were evaluated at 5 locations.
All plots were on silt loam soils and were furrow irrigated, except the Ferriday, LA location. At this location, adequate rainfall made irrigation unnecessary.
Averaged across all five locations, the control fields yielded 206 bushels/acre of corn. The Invigor 8 treatment yielded 209.4 bushels/acre of corn across all five locations. The Invigor 8 + seed treatment and biological had an average yield of 227.4 bushels/acre of corn across all locations.
That’s a gain of 21.4 bushels per acre on the test seeds treated with Invigor8 Plus.
There were no visual differences across treatments that stood out substantially across locations.
In summary, the seeds treated with Invigor 8 and Invigor 8 Plus showed higher yields than the control seeds.
Overall gains for growers will vary based on variables such as weather, soil conditions, and farming practices.
