General results

Kg/ha → CoteN™ (8,100) > Urea (7,397) > T0 (7,309)

pl/m2 → T0 (284a) > CoteN (236b) > Urea (228b)

panicle/pl → CoteN™ (3a) > Urea (2ab) > T0 (2b)

g/1,000 grains →  all 24g


 –  The grain weight was the same for all treatments and the result came from the better tillering, a consequence of the higher amount of panicle per m2.

Worst treatment results and costs

T0 – zero (no cover-dressing) → Urea USD550/MT x 0.15MT + USD15 (coverdressing) = USD98/ha

Best treatment results and costs

CoteN™ → USD1700/MT x 0.09MT = USD155/ha

Net benefit of the best treatment ($/Ha)

CoteN™ → (8100Kg-7397Kg) x USD0.26/Kg = USD183 – (155-98) = USD55/ha

Conclusions

Summary

When comparing the final yield, the CoteN™ proved to be economically beneficial
