Corn Trial with Organic Inputs

Date:  01/04/2022

A 2021 trial on corn in Wisconsin compared 10 treatments using a combination of organic inputs. The control plot had 2 tons/acre of chicken litter pellets, as did all the other plots. Most of the 9 trial treatments had QLF TerraFed with various combinations of other liquid carbon-based fertilizers.  Three of the plots included Pacific Gro Sea Phos – and all 3 were in the top 4 for the highest yield. The top 4 plots had average 240.3 bushel yield (organic corn), compared to 220.5 for the other 6 plots.
Soil moisture was a limiting factor and the crop went through a significant drought period.  
Best results were when Pacific Gro Sea Phos was added to QLF 72TSC (Terrafed) + Super Six + CX-1.  This tank mix resulted in excellent plant vigor and crop growth development.  Vigor is extremely important to organic producers who cannot use pesticide inputs for rescue treatments.
