CaT™ technology in Fortalis® is one of the most thoroughly tested crop enhancement products, having undergone more than 250 U.S. trials and more than 2,000 Brazil trials. U.S. field trials conducted in 2015–2017 have demonstrated the effectiveness of Fortalis® for improved soybean yield and consistency. These trials have shown Fortalis® to deliver an average increase of 4.5 bushels/acre when used with fungicide, and an average increase of 1.9 bushels/acre when applied by itself, with 84% of test results showing increased yield.

Interactive Recap of Fortalis® Results Discussion

In a 2018 panel discussion, soybean growers and Dr. Fred Below with the University of Illinois discussed how increasing calcium mobility in soybeans can lead to increased return on investment. You may also review the 2017 panel discussion.

Test results have shown that maximum yield improvements occur when:

  • The risk of yield loss from fungal disease is high, either due to variety susceptibility or high fungal pressure
  • Rain is not expected within 24 hours of application
  • Soil conditions are normal, moist or wet at the time of application (same use recommendation as with most crop protection products)
  • Use of a surfactant does not exceed fungicide recommendations

Fortalis builds on the success of Veritas®, the first generation CaT™ technology product from Plant Impact that has demonstrated consistent yield performance in Brazil since 2012.
