Case Study

Barley BeCrop Trials with Biome Makers

The Problem

As a science-forward regenerative agriculture company, we wanted to analyze the effects of our Rebuilder (0-17-0-12) product, demonstrate product performance, refine product application rate recommendations, and measure the results on the soil microbiome of barley fields.

The Solution

In partnership with Biome Makers, independent field trials were completed in Strathmore, Alberta.

The barley fields were divided into four samples. Soil samples were taken before application and three times after application. The three treatments included a low (200 lbs/acre) and high (400 lbs/acre) of Rebuilder along with Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) (100 lbs/acre). A typical fertilizer program provided the remaining nutrients for the crop and soil conditions. BeCrop Trials provided insight into functionality, hormone production, and stress adaptation.

When compared to a standard synthetic program, the Replenish Nutrients product line showed:

  • Improved phytohormone production and stress adaptation.
  • Improved microbial diversity and variety in the soil over standard synthetic fertilizer.
  • Both applications of Rebuilder showed an increasing trend in phytohormone production (in particular, gibberellin and abscisic acid).
  • In the low rate of Rebuilder, the product showed a potential increase for the plant to transport manganese and increased fungicidal agents.
  • The high rate of Rebuilder provided the potential to produce Cytokinin along with various insecticide agents.

The Results

0 %
increase in the plant's ability to transport Manganese
0 %
Increase in Gibberellin production compared to MAP
0 %
more production of Abscisic Acid (ABA) compared to MAP

Replenish Nutrients' Rebuilder demonstrated positive impacts in phytohormone production, stress adaptation, and nutrient solubilization.
