Field Trial - Kildare
Microbial Inoculation and Crop Nutrition for Winter Barley - Kildare, Ireland
Digestate is well established as an excellent fertiliser, but recent field studies have revealed that it can be so much better. A well timed application of AquaClean™ bacteria has shown in replicated trials to significantly boost the fertilising capacity, and therefore value of the digestate.
This trial in Kildare, Ireland, over a total plot of 17 hectares of 6 row winter barley, shows not only the impact of AquaClean™ on normal farm programme, but also on land where digestate is applied.
AquaClean™ Products have been seen to:
- Enhance the performance of organic fertilisers (Digestate / Slurry / Manure / Compost);
- Improve soil structure and porosity;
- Increase the availability of nutrients resulting in better natural plant health and resistance to abiotic stress;
- Improve overall crop quality traits.
This trial concluded in July 2017
