Fielder’s seed treatment Kick-Off has shown hugely impressive results from a recent live field scenario. Early independent estimates suggests that the oat crop treated with Kick-Off could return yields of up to 40% more than an identical field of oats not treated with Kick-Off.
This in-field comparison took place in Kinross, Scotland on two fields of winter oats directly next door to one another. Both fields were sown on the 25th of September at a seed rate of 450 seeds/m2, and in identical conditions. The key difference being that one field of seeds had been treated with Kick-Off, whilst the other had not.
Throughout February both fields experienced very cold temperatures, as well as frost heave. However, the field not treated with Kick-Off suffered from extreme root damage and stunted growth, as a result of a poorly established root system. In comparison the Kick-Off treated oat seed had established a large and healthy root system, enabling the crop to survive these environmental stresses and deliver potentially a 40% larger yield.
Fielder’s Kick-Off brings together a combination of Phosphite and Manganese to get the plant off to a quick start, whilst the Zinc and biostimulant Amino Acids boosts early vigour – all speeding up normal development processes. Kick-off is sold throughout the UK and Ireland.
KICK-OFF is supplied in 20L, 210L and 1,000L containers
