CaT™ technology in Fortalis® is one of the most thoroughly tested crop enhancement products, having undergone more than 200 U.S. trials and more than 1,500 Brazil trials. U.S. field trials conducted in 2015–2016 have demonstrated the effectiveness of Fortalis® for improved soybean yield and consistency. These trials have shown Fortalis® to deliver an average increase of 4.8 bushels/acre when used with fungicide, with 86% of test results showing increased yield.
Hear Plant Impact’s U.S. Commercial Director Mike Eade discuss the company’s mission to close the yield gap and help growers like you achieve significant ROI. Mike explains why Fortalis® + Fungicide represents a whole new value proposition in crop enhancement, backed by a wealth of proven trial data and cost-cutting grower programs.
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.
At a recent Beck Ag panel, soybean growers and Dr. Fred Below with the University of Illinois discussed strategies to maximize soybean yield and get the most out of a fungicide investment. Listen to panelists sharing the benefits of Fortalis® advanced crop enhancement spray.
Growers discuss their experience and results protecting their soybean crop investment during the 2016 growing season with Fortalis® crop enhancement, in the following comments from January 2017 discussions sponsored by Plant Impact.
“When you just drove down the turn row in a pickup, you couldn’t visually see a lot of difference. But we’ve got grain bins nearby where l could really get up high and visually look across the field. You could definitely see where the untreated was a totally different shade versus the Fortalis® and Stratego®YLD together. There was a four- or five-bushel yield increase and you could definitely see a healthier-looking plant throughout the growing season from a higher point of view.”
“I had a lot better yield with Fortalis® and Stratego YLD®. From the non-treated to the Fortalis® and Stratego YLD® was about a seven-bushel increase.”
“We walk a lot of beans late season, and in that field we found one plant that had two four-bean pod sets in one cluster, which I’ve never seen before. Obviously, we’ve seen four-bean pods, but never have we seen them in the same cluster in the top cluster of the plant. That was with Fortalis® and the fungicide and insecticide treatment – all three combined.”
