Crownfx is a carefully chosen combination of microbials that have been tested and selected to elicit a positive crop response. Crownfx enhances the plant’s ability to metabolize nutrients and efficiently support growth. Some benefits include: phosphate solubilization through microbial activity, increased leaf area and tillering, reduced ethylene production (associated with aging and senescence), pH regulation, reduced reactive oxygen species, general stress mitigation, stronger stems and increased seeds per head as well as total number of heads per plant.
• Enhance root mass
• Release more tillers
• Increase seed head length
• Increase kernel counts
• Increase crude protein
- Early Season Emergence & Root Development:
Crownfx™ promotes root development including early season lateral roots which provides necessary support for tillering and shoot development. Avoiding propiconazole during this phase is critical as a multispectral antimicrobial will terminate the symbiotic bonds with the plant.
- Faster Canopy:
By supporting increased tillering and leaf surface area canopy can be established earlier. This can have an impact on weed pressures and moisture retention in the field.
- Larger Flag Leaves:
Increased flag leaf surface area is directly linked to energy production during reproduction. This is critical to support the production of energy and carbohydrates for yield.
- Increased Uniformity at Harvest and Protein Increases:
Plant height is typically increased and shows increased uniformity of height and reduced lodging due to increased support in the field. Protein levels are supported through the increase in metabolic processing in the plant. Fertility management is recommended to maximize protein levels realized at harvest.
- Increased Straw Residues Post Harvest:
The increase in head bearing tillers creates the opportunity for increased straw residues in the field post harvest.
