BSN Results | Early Vigour and Stronger Plant Growth

BSN Creates Many Added Benefits

BSN seed priming has a number of physical effects and outcomes that create benefits as a direct result. 12 of these ‘cause and effect’ benefits are detailed here.

INCREASE EARLY VIGOUR

BSN assists in uniform and speedy seedling establishment. Vigorous root growth enhances growth of useful bacteria in root rhizosphere antagonising pathogenic bacteria.

STRONGER PLANT GROWTH WITH
EARLY TILLERS THAT ARE MORE VIABLE

BSN powers stronger early plant growth from the point of germination – resulting in the earlier appearance of tillers that are thicker and stronger. This means more viable and stronger tiller formation is the precursor to better future yields.

TOLERANCE TO DROUGHT
AND WATER LOGGING

BSN powers stronger early plant growth from the point of germination – resulting in the earlier appearance of tillers that are thicker and stronger. This means more viable and stronger tiller formation is the precursor to better future yields.

IMPROVES
GRANULAR FERTILISER PERFORMANCE

Importantly BSN is proven to work regardless of granular fertiliser rate or soil pH. By reducing the toxic effects of fertiliser in the furrow and growing bigger root systems meaning more granular fertiliser intercepts and uptake.

MORE NUTRIENT FROM THE SOIL
AND ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE

BSN increases uptake of granular fertiliser providing higher availability of soil applied NPK fertilisers whilst reducing leaching of expensive and environmentally damaging nutrients from NPK fertilisers into the stream and water table. BSN has a moderating effect on loss of nitrogen and phosphate from topsoil since it creates more root interception with these nutrients in soil.

GENERATES GREATER PHOSPHORUS ACTIVATION AND IMPROVES UP-TAKE FROM THE SOIL

The BSN stimulated root mass causes two direct activities. Firstly, because it is physically larger and has more surface area, the plant has greater and more effective physical access to soil phosphorus. Secondly, this larger mass stimulates more microbial activity, resulting in phosphorus activation or the conversion of soil phosphorus into plant available phosphorus that the plant can then use.

IMPROVES NITROGEN EFFICIENCY
IN THE PLANT

The uptake efficiency of nitrogen from the soil is improved, using less energy in the transfer to the plant metabolism.

PROMOTES BETTER RESISTANCE TO DISEASE

BSN promotes an improvement in the general performance of the plant’s resistance to disease and improves the plant’s ability to robustly handle disease attack from its position of greater health.

PROVIDES THE PLANT WITH GREATER TOLERANCE TO ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREMES OR IMPACT

BSN is shown to give the plant the ability to deal with the extremes of environmental impacts such as drought, frost and water logging.

A BSN primed plant has more tolerance to extremes, giving greater assurance against uncontrolled environmental impacts.

AUGMENTS THE PLANT’S
STRESS-HANDLING ABILITIES

BSN has been shown to provide the plant with the ability to handle plant related stresses. A larger root structure provides the plant with the ability to harness more strength during these times – which improves the
overall outcome.

BUFFERS FUNGICIDES AND PESTICIDES

The harsh effects of pesticides and fungicides applied to the plant are shown to be easier to handle for a BSN grown plant, as it is buffered by the stronger and healthier conditions BSN achieves.

IMPROVES PLANT METABOLISM

Overall plant metabolism is improved in a BSN applied plant, as it has been established for maximum growth potential from the point the seed embryo was set during the seed priming.
