Methodology

Soybeans were planted in 30-inch rows at 142,000 seeds/ac in Kingsbury Co. on May 8, 2023. During planting, a mix of in-furrow additives by Biovante was applied. This mix includes the following products and their application rate:

BioRed IF applied at 6 oz/ac

BioFlex applied at 4 oz/ac

BioMate applied at 6 oz/ac

BioCarbon 12 applied at 12 oz/ac

Assist applied at 6 oz/ac

The Biovante mix was applied in 120ft wide test strips in the field. Soybeans were harvested on September 14, 2023, and yield analysis was conducted on the middle two passes from each treated strip. The field was classified into two different yield zones, which were medium (35-55 bu/ac) and high (>55 bu/ac). This report evaluates the high yield zone.

Results

The Biovante mix had no significant effect on the soybean yields (90% confidence interval) since the difference between treatments was less than 1.0 bu/ac (Figure1 & Table 1). Additional trials with this mix are needed in the future.
