Washout experiments with Corn

The multi-year field trails in Styria - Austria confirm the nitrate washout safety by using BioAgenasol® with simultaneous humus build-up and a very good yield.

Findings of the washout trial

 

Washout experiments with potatoes 

In 2018, another BioAgenasol® trial with potatoes was conduted, in which the nitrate discharge risk was tested in sensitive groundwater areas.

FINDINGS OF THE WASHOUT TRIAL 

Washout experiments with pumpkins

The Styrian Agricultural Chamber conducted a scientific trial with oil pumpkins in 2016 in order to investigate the performance and the impact of the organic fertiliser BioAgenasol® in sensitive ground-water areas. BioAgenasol® was determined to be highly resistant to washout.
