Increase of plant resistance to overwetting (underflooding)
Increase of plant resistance to
Anti-stress effect of Albit promotes plant resistance to overwetting and underflooding.
Interesting results were observed in 2011 (farm Mayak, Chernigovskaya oblast,
Ukraine). For a long period, water had been observed on the maize fields. Albit
had growth-stimulating effect on unsubmerged fields: yield was increased from
7.4 t/hа (in variant with Albit + herbicide, control Ц pure herbicide) to 8.51
t/hа (yield increase 15%). Efficacy of Albit was more visible on flooded fields.
After submergence, yield of fields treated with Albit decreased slightly
(by 10%), but yield of fields without Albit treatment decreased almost in 2
times (down to 3.0-3.7 t/hа). Harvest was almost fully saved due to
In 2013 (farm Sunbelt, state Georgia, USA), maize fields treated with Albit
were in the conditions of overwetting due to severe rainfalls. However, control
fields were located on dry areas. In spite of that, yield of maize on this plot
was even higher than in control by 1% (11.55 t/hа).
In 2009 (Tver' oblast), weather conditions were unfavourable for flax growing:
in May and June after a long period of rainfalls, soil was over-watered, water
stagnation on fields was observed. Under these extremely conditions, Albit
allowed to obtain yield 2.7 times higher than in control (seeds
? 0.54 t/hа vs. 0.2 t/hа in control, straw ? 5.95 t/hа vs. 2.14 t/hа in control)
in farm Maslovo (Torzhok region).
Field of cereals after severe rainfall
(Vologda oblast, July, 2017)
The same results were observed in variants with Albit application on cereal
crops and flax in the northern regions (Vologda, Kirov, Kostroma, Tver', Pskov
oblasts, Krasnoyarsk krai, Finland, Estonia). Also, in this regards, the ability
of Albit toaccelerate of plant development is essential for
plants allowing them to form crop before autumn rains.
