Multi-Year/Location Study: Treated vs. Untreated 11.1 Bu./A. Yield Advantage

Purpose:
Beck’s Escalate® yield enhancement system is a proprietary mix of yield enhancing products that come standard on all Beck’s seed. Escalate offers insect protection, improved stands, seedling health and yield. This unique blend is sealed onto each seed using Beck’s exclusive polymer. This study compares five different varieties of Escalate treated soybeans with untreated soybeans. In this study we evaluate seed emergence and final yield. This study was completed at both the Ohio and Central Indiana PFR sites.

Summary:   
The yield and plant health advantages associated with the Escalate yield enhancement system proved themselves again in 2014. With an 11.1 Bu./A. yield advantage over the untreated controls, Escalate performed better than ever. The disease and insect protection provided by Escalate paid off consistently throughout the growing season, resulting in strong early emergence and steady, season-long stands that led to exceptional yields. Every variety showed a positive yield advantage over its corresponding control, with two of the five varieties tested showing a double digit increase.

Beck's Hybrids PFR program conducts more than 75 different studies across multiple locations (500+ acres) to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Simply put, it is research focused with the farmer in mind. To see the entire study, please download the PFR Book and see page 321.
