Cold Soil = Low Phosphorus Availability

Phosphorus (P) availability is reduced in cold soils, and as you know, P is important for early root growth! 1

XiteBio Yield+ may help your dilemma with low P availability in cold soil by solubilizing soil-bound phosphate, converting it into a plant-usable form. XiteBio Yield+ can be applied infurrow with your starter fertilizer or with your early post herbicide spray.

The active ingredient is a unique patented strain of Bacillus firmus. This PGPR is a vigorous colonizer of plant roots with distinct phosphorus (P) solubilizing characteristics that work throughout the growing season to help plants maximize growth and cope with stress conditions.

XiteBio® Yield+ Liquid Biologicals Powered by PGPR

XiteBio® Yield+ is an early post-emergent biological that can be tank-mixed with the herbicide application for the first pass at the 0-6 leaf stage or applied in-furrow. XiteBio® Yield+ products are based on a naturally occurring PGPR (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria) platform, allowing for easy use and higher yields. XiteBio® Yield+ contains a unique strain of Bacillus firmus that utilizes three distinct modes of action to improve phosphorus availability and increase yields.

Please contact our Crop Inputs Account Manager, Dean Shantz at 519-662-2877 X.246 with any questions or for additional information.

Products currently available include:

  • XiteBio® Yield+ for Canola
  • XiteBio® Yield+ for Legumes
  • XiteBio® Yield+ for Corn, Wheat & Barley

Field Trials

The advantages of PGPR include

  • Ready to use liquid, no mixing with other liquids or powders required
  • Tank-mixable with most post-emergent herbicides and many liquid fertilizers
  • Convenient post emergent or in-furrow application options
  • Phosphorus solubilization that increases soil P availability and uptake
  • Production of plant growth phytohormones “e.g. IAA”
  • Siderophore production that chelates iron and increases availability
  • Improves early stage plant growth and nutrition
  • Reduces plant stress under poor environmental conditions
  • Increases root mass and development
  • Improves plant vigor and health
  • Earlier maturity and longer flowering
  • Increases yields and ROI

The science behind Yield+ technology

The mode of action is the way the a.i. (active ingredient) of the product affects the plant and its surrounding environment. XiteBio® Yield+ utilizes the following modes of action to help crops develop stronger root systems and better yields.
