HOUSTON (August 3, 2010) – StollerUSA presented several technical sessions on maximizing genetic expression and plant health at the 3rd annual Corn College event held in Bloomington, IL on July 19-23.
Retailers and growers from 29 states attended four separate sold-out sessions during the weeklong event, hosted by Farm Journal Media. Attendees were eager to gain hands-on experience and learn about cutting-edge technology they could implement on their own farming operation.
StollerUSA sponsored the event again this year and led technology sessions in the nearby Stoller demonstration plot. During the popular sessions growers learned about Stoller technology and the importance of optimal hormone balance during all stages of plant growth and development.
Attendees were able to compare root systems from plants treated with Stoller technology to control plants, both from the Corn College demonstration plot and nearby farmer plots. Stoller-treated root systems were noticeably larger with more fibrous root tissue. Stoller technical sales reps shared how vital root growth is for optimal hormone balance, crop health and yields.
“StollerUSA technology focuses on controlling the impact of plant stress - promoting optimal hormone balance to produce a stronger, healthier plant that results in higher yields,” said Wayne Smith, plant physiologist and General Manager of StollerUSA. “Continuously-growing, fibrous root systems insure effective nutrient uptake and appropriate hormone balance, which will offset the effects of stress.”
Stoller’s expertise in maximizing the genetic expression of crops is based on the management of plant hormone levels throughout the life cycle of the plant, allowing for optimal performance under a variety of conditions.
