Mont-Saint-Hilaire, June 4 2016 –
Axter Agroscience Inc. assigned the research centres Semico and AgQuest the project of measuring the effects of incorporating Crop Booster ® in 2,4-DB based herbicide spray mixtures used on alfalfa. Researchers observed an increase in yields averaging 528 kilos of dry hay per hectare.
The 2,4-DB treatment can cause the alfalfa plants noticeable stress such as curling of leaves and stem twisting. Adding Crop Booster ® to the spray mixture reduces stress to alfalfa by triggering defense mechanisms within the plants allowing the alfalfa plants to resume active growth more quickly.
