SOIL & PLANT ENHANCER
Soil and Plant Enhancer (SPE-120) is a biological seed dressing formulated with the active ingredient Beauveria bassiana, a symbiotic fungus that occurs in nature. When you apply SPE-120 on your seed, Beauveria bassiana lives in the roots, stems and leaves of your crop, growing symbiotically with your plants.
Unlike conventional seed dressing using synthetic chemicals, SPE-120 blends food-grade and certified organic products with the active ingredient Beauveria bassiana. Synthetic dressing become less effective as plants grow and aren't the best for the environment.
When you choose SPE-120, you're selecting a biological seed dressing that many certifiers have determined to comply with organic standards. Contact Fabian Seed Farms today to see if SPE-120 is the right fit for your crops, and choose a sustainable seed dressing to boost your crop performance.
What Crops Can I Use SPE-120 On?
- Cole Crops
- Sweet Corn
- Dry Beans
- Fruit Trees
Using SPE-120 has many benefits for your crops, including:
- Stimulating Plant's Immune System
- Restricting Harmful Plant Pathogens From Entering The Plant
- Interacting With Your Crops To Produce Additive Biochemicals
- Increases Plant Resistance To Insect Feeders
Beauveria bassiana is a fungus naturally occurring in soil but is often killed off by fungicides and tillage. When you use SPE-120, you are directly applying beauveria bassiana as an active ingredient to your plant and reaping the direct benefits. Don't wait. Contact our qualified team at Fabian Seed Farms to see if SPE-120 is the right biological seed dressing for your crops.
Observed Results Using SPE-120
In a report with data collected in Colorado and Ohio, farmers saw a yield increase of over 20 bags per acre. In Colorado, SPE-120 helped reduce Rhizoctonia, and the pick outs were reduced from their normal average of 23% to 2%. There was minimal damage from the Colorado Potato Beetle (CPB) in Ohio due to increased plant resistance to insect feeders. Lastly, High Plains growers reported increased quality and increased yields due to limited potato psyllid pressure.
Tomatoes treated with SPE-120 and then sold to restaurants were noticeably more flavourful than tomatoes that were not treated. The Brix score measured five points higher than the control tomatoes, and the outdoor crops had limited insect damage.
Strawberries treated with SPE-120 saw faster greening in the first six weeks.
Soybeans treated with SPE-120 had increased resilience to flooding and drought and yield more bushels than untreated beans. When measuring leaf chlorophyll, treated plants measured 4.2 points higher than untreated. Soybeans that were treated also saw reduced stem canker, stem borer, fusarium root rot, common rust and Anthracnose.
Treated corn had increased resilience to flooding and drought. When used in organic corn trials, there was an increase of up to 20 bu per acre in Ohio and northwest Iowa. SPE-120 also helped improve root and stalk development while also reducing mycotoxins, fusarium, gossip wilt, and Anthracnose.
Cole crops treated with SPE-120 see improved plant health along with reduced loopers.
