Bridgeway helped Sugar Beet recover from herbicide damage
For one Agronomist, Bridgeway was the last resort to save a dying crop of sugar beet damaged by a herbicide contaminated spray tank. That crop went on to produce larger beet that weighed in 16% heavier than the undamaged beet in the rest of the field, with the same sugar levels.
On a cold wet day in summer 2017 we got our first insight into the real power of amino acid biostimulants.
A sugar beet crop had been sprayed with a herbicide contaminated spray tank and it was almost certain the crop would die. With nothing to lose, 2.0 L/ha Bridgeway was applied to the whole area with the knowledge that amino acids are important for plant health and can help crops tolerate abiotic stress.
Following a field visit 2 weeks later it was clear Bridgeway had helped the crop to recover. In the words of the agronomist, “it was nothing short of a miracle.” The herbicide damage was so severe that some of the beet didn’t pull through, but in others, Bridgeway had stimulated a new crown to grow. That crop went on to produce larger beet that weighed in 16% heavier than the undamaged beet in the rest of the field, with the same sugar levels.
