Cary, NC (October 30, 2018) - Arysta LifeScience announces the launch of RAZE™ 0-3-2, an advanced foliar nutrition product that promotes more balanced uptake of essential plant nutrients necessary for optimum crop growth and higher yields. Available for corn and wheat crops, the foliar nutrition product is designed to be applied at key physiological stages of plant development for increased root, stalk and vegetative development.
“Innovative nutrition solutions are an increasingly important component for growers looking to unlock more of the genetic potential of their crops,” says Royce Schulte, Arysta LifeScience BioSolutions Business Manager. “Arysta LifeScience is bringing its global strength in biostimulants and plant nutrition technology to the North American market with the introduction of RAZE 0-3-2 to help growers further maximize their crops’ potential.”
RAZE 0-3-2 is powered by RAZE Nutrient Technology, which features a proprietary Ascophyllum nodosum(kelp extract) extraction process that produces a high-quality foliar nutritional product with higher levels of product uniformity. The result is an efficient, concentrated and quality formulation that is also easy to apply at low use rates.
High-performance nutrition solution
In on-farm trials in the United States, RAZE 0-3-2 has demonstrated consistently strong efficacy at different physiological stages of the crop’s development and under varying field conditions. In three years of replicated research trials in multiple regions, RAZE 0-3-2 provided a consistent 6.5 bushel-per-acre yield increase in corn at V5 stage. In wheat, the product has demonstrated a 5 bu/A increase at Feekes 3–5 application timing.
“Every crop year, growers face environmental factors ranging from weather challenges to pest and disease infestations that limit the genetic potential of the seed,” Schulte says. “RAZE 0-3-2 helps bring balance to the changing environment at important stages of the crop life cycle by improving the crop’s ability to respond to adverse environmental stresses and reach more of its genetic potential.”
By creating bigger, stronger plants and root systems, RAZE 0-3-2 helps improve the overall nutrient absorption, photosynthesis capability and carbohydrate storage needed to fuel plant growth and development. In field testing, corn treated with RAZE 0-3-2 featured a 21.6 percent increase in root length and a 16.7 percent increase in total root area, compared to untreated corn plants.
Delivered in a concentrated formulation, RAZE 0-3-2 can be tank-mixed with commonly used herbicides, fungicides and other foliar nutrients. In corn, the optimal timing is between the V3 and V7 growth stage at herbicide application timing, and from the VT to R2 growth stage. In spring and winter wheat, a single application can be made from the 3-leaf stage (herbicide application timing) through flag leaf.
RAZE 0-3-2 is available now through growers’ preferred retailer channels.
