If it hadn't been for Bio-Forge, I know I wouldn't have a chance of saving the crop
Tifton, GA (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
Danny Thompson is no stranger to the unexpected. But, it's a refreshing change of pace when the unexpected comes in the form of higher yields in an unlikely patch of herbicide-damaged cotton.
Thompson has farmed 1,200 acres of peanut and cotton crops on the Thompson Family farms for over three decades.
In mid-June he noticed sporadic growth patterns in the recently planted cotton in a usually productive plot of land. A combination of herbicide residue from the previous peanut crop and herbicide drift caused 40 acres of his cotton crop to shut down. The plants were severely damaged; brown, stunted, and burned beyond what looked like repair.
Rather than settle for sub-par yields or worse, Thompson applied StollerUSA's Bio-Forge® to the damaged crop area. Within four days the cotton plants were rebounding with new root and foliar growth.
"If it hadn't been for Bio-Forge, I know I wouldn't have a chance of saving the crop," stated Thompson. "It looks like this field will come back strong in just a few days after application and I anticipate a good yield. Over the years I've used a lot of Stoller Products and it has helped my yields tremendously. I invested about $11.50 per acre and prevented a potential loss of $360.00 per acre."
