In a wheat trial harvested earlier this year, utilisation of Basis XC on granular fertiliser led to a wheat yield increase compared to untreated fertiliser.
The wheat variety was Suntop. Basis XC was applied at 2 litres per tonne to Granulock Z fertiliser. Both the treated and untreated fertiliser was applied at 65 kg per hectare.
Frosted conditions were experienced at flowering due to the site elevation. At harvest, wheat grown with the untreated fertiliser yielded 1.65 tonnes/ha while wheat from the Basis XC-treated part of the paddock yielded 2.04 tonnes/ha, a yield increase of +0.39 tonnes/ha.
