AlphaJoule + Prymer

Manufacturer: Agrovive
For use on: Alfalfa
Application Methods and Rates:

  • Liquid product that can be sprayed, fertigated with an irrigation system, or air applied.
  • Can be applied to all alfalfa varieties and technologies at spring green-up and following each harvest during the growing season.
  • A case of alphajoule covers 20 acres of established alfalfa.
  • Each case contains two 2.5-gallon jugs. One jug is alphajoule and the second jug is PRYMER™ for Alfalfa, a bacteria and micronutrient activator.
  • Apply with a minimum of 10 gallons of clean water per acre.
  • Use larger sized nozzles for best crop coverage.
  • Apply alphajoule when the majority of crown buds have released and at least three weeks before the next harvest. This recommendation usually provides a 5-7 day application window after the previous crop’s cut date.
  • Alphajoule and PRYMER for alfalfa are tank mix compatible with other products applied to alfalfa at the green-up stage of growth. This would include micronutrients (except copper), insecticides, herbicides (except glyphosate), and most fungicides.

Key Benefits

  • Crop-by-crop and seasonal yield enhancement
  • Root growth and root reserve recharge
  • Harvest flexibility and potential forage quality improvements
  • Stand life & rotation implications

AlphaJoule™ Technical Description

Alphajoule™ from Agrovive, Inc. is an in-plant biostimulant for alfalfa comprised of proprietary strains of Pseudomonas Flouresens and Bacillus Megatarium bacteria. These non-GMO, patent pending bacteria strains were selected from the natural environment and screened for their ability to recycle nutrients, impact water use efficiency, and reduce the effects of abiotic and biotic stressors on alfalfa growth at the cellular level.

In the alfalfa plant, the alphajoule endophytic bacteria live in the inner cellular spaces and the cell walls of the roots, crown, stems and leaves where metabolism as well as cell division are regulated. Here, the bacteria and the host cells have a symbiotic relationship that promotes plant health, photosynthesis, carbohydrate production, and performance efficiencies.

When stresses begin to adversely affect cell functions in any part of the alfalfa plant, the production of ethylene is triggered within those cells. Ethylene is an anti-growth hormone that slows vital cell functions such as photosynthesis and promotes early maturity as well as leaf drop if not alleviated. Alphajoule’s multi-strains of bacteria mediate ethylene production within the stressed plant at the sub-clinical stage to reduce potential effects on yield, maturity, quality, or persistence.
