Episode One of the virtual plot tour, released in early September, focused on the improved root system and nodulation developed by soybeans treated with Trident. In Episode Two, Osburn updates growers on the mid to late season progress of three soybean trials treated with fungicide and insecticide plus a competitive product, no inoculant at all and Trident Bio-Inducer.
“Just looking at the Trident plants versus the control and traditional inoculant, you see clear potential for greater yield,” said Osburn. “Where the other plants are still flowering, the Trident soybeans are standing taller, greener and growing pods all the way to the top. The Trident plants look about a week more developed than the untreated, and that will make a difference at harvest time.”
Trident Soybean Bio-Inducer provides proprietary bacteria that are pre-stressed, allowing for 90-day survival on the seed, improved tolerance of seed-applied pesticides and performance across a broad range of environments. The bio-inducer within Trident causes nitrogen-fixing bacteria to generate nodule-producing chemicals for rapid root nodulation. The increased nodulation provides enhanced nitrogen fixation, unlocking the full genetic potential of the soybean seed and promoting enhanced plant development. This results in overall performance for a yield boost of more than six percent, while leaving more nitrogen in the field for next season.
