EnerPlus® increases production by up to 12%
Daymsa has developed EnerPlus®, a new biofertilizer that promotes plant nutrition through the biological activation of the soil. This new solution has exclusive microorganisms, Pseudomonas fluorescens strain GR-322, which enhance beneficial microbial life on the root surface and increase plant activity. The microorganisms are formulated together with catalytic agents that enhance their development and stability in the soil.
Contrasting results in raspberry
Daymsa has carried out agronomic trials to study raspberry yields after being treated with EnerPlus®.
The tests were carried out in commercial raspberry farms (Maravilla variety) located in the northern region of Portugal. Researchers made two applications, one before the flowering stage and the second one, thirty days after the first application. In both, researchers used a dose of 1 kg/ha via drip irrigation.
To obtain the data, the harvest was collected from two hectares of a plot treated with EnerPlus® and another two hectares from a plot without treatment (control). Then, they calculated the productive mean of each plot in tons/hectare.
The tests concluded that the plot treated with EnerPlus® yielded 12% more than the control plot. This increase was the result of better nourished and therefore more productive plants in the plot treated with Daymsa's biofertilizer.
In addition, EnerPlus® is a natural solution that can be used in Organic Agriculture, according to EC Regulation 834/2007 and 889/2008, CAEE.
