Rid fields of stubble; prepare for next season with SD-25
The optimum application time for SD 25 is immediately after post-harvest tilling has occurred. Tilling does not need to occur prior to application if it is not already part of a management program, but allows for greater surface area contact between the stubble and soil. In any case, 20 – 25 oz of
SD 25 must be mixed with a minimum of 10 gallons of water, per acre for even distribution. SD 25 is concentrated enough for single-application, however heavy stubble may require a 5-10 oz increase in SD 25 per acre to maintain decomposition speed. It is important to apply the formula before any freeze occurs because microbial decomposition slows when bacteria are exposed to cold temperatures.
Founder of Bio S.I., Wayne Tucker, explains the benefit of adding SD 25 to a crop management program: “Prior to SD 25, our agriculture formulas have been multipurpose and supplement good soil health throughout crop growing cycles. SD 25 works beyond growing seasons to prepare fields for future planting by releasing the nutrients tied up in leftover debris. Plant debris can be a real problem for the next planting season for some growers. This helps farmers recycle nutrients they have already paid for plus the benefits of adding carbon (humus) to help hold water and nutrients in their fields.”
SD 25 is the latest addition to Bio S.I.’s extensive line of microbial inoculants, and a necessary improvement to post-harvest crop management. It will be available in pints, quarts, gallons. 2.5 gallons, 5 gallons, 55 gallons, 250 gallon and 270 gallon totes. Look for it at local Bio S.I. distributors or online at the end of this month.
