A Nutrien Ag Solutions Field Day demonstration shows sugarcane's quick response to Foundation LM

Two sugarcane billets were planted in pots at a Nutrien Ag Solutions location in Tolga, Queensland. Foundation LM was applied at 5 L/ha in one pot, and the other was left untreated as a control. In the photos below, which were taken 5 days after planting, you can already see that there is a big difference in root growth with Foundation LM.

A replicated plant cane trial in Brightly, Queensland, shows the ability of Foundation LM to improve sugarcane performance.  Alternate replications of the grower standard practice (GSP) and the GSP + Foundation LM (5L/ha in furrow) were applied at planting in this study, which was conducted in variety SP80-1816 plant cane by a Landmark agronomist.

At harvest, the small investment of 5 litres of Foundation LM mixed with pre-emergence herbicides allowed the grower to pick up an additional 907 kilograms of sugar per hectare, on average, over his standard practice.
