“Large scale farm trials with brown onions with produced outstanding results. The difference in yield and particularly marketable yield was significant. A MaxSil™ blend material (“HumaSil™) was used on a 6 ha onion crop at Hagley in Northern Tasmania.
The product was broadcast over half the site after planting at early post emergency, 58 days after planting at a rate of 100 kg/ha. This provided one treated and one control replicate both approximately 3 ha in size. The crop was managed using standard agronomic practices with other require fertiliser and pesticides applied evenly to the entire site as required.
This silicon demonstration in onions resulted in statistically larger yields of marketable product”.
