How Does BioLiNE® Help Root and Tuber Plant Production?
(Carrots, potatoes, beets, sweet potatoes, yams, and cassava)
BioLiNE’s technology drastically improves the transport and assimilation of nutrients and other plant beneficial compounds. BioLiNE products are the “truckers” of nutrients and minerals. Through a process of Dynamic Nutrient Exchange™, BioLiNE products mitigate issues of transport and nutrient imbalance. They do this by continually exchanging nutrients in the soil solution, between microbes, soil particles, and plant roots, ensuring the nutrients the plant needs are delivered to the roots and readily transported into the plant. BioLiNE® technology can be applied at various stages in the development of root and tuber crops.
Example root and tuber program:
- Stage 1: tank mixed with liquid fertilizer for in-furrow applications
- Stage 2: tank mixed with herbicide or other nutrient inputs
- Stage 3: tank mixed with fungicide or other nutrient inputs
2020 Potato Trials – Florida
With no added fertility, the control plants produced a total of 24 potatoes and plants treated with BioLiNE® produced a total of 38 potatoes (58.3% yield increase). When treated with fertilizer, yield increased to 81 potatoes, however when fertilizer was added with BioLiNE, yield increased to 90 potatoes (12.5% yield increase). Total mass of harvested potatoes also increased from 5.96kg to 7.99kg when treated with BioLiNE® (34.1% increase).
