Faba Bean Trial - NutriMAX PhosCal

An independant trial on a growers property in Maitland, South Australia was performed in the 2019 growing season.

The product was applied just on flowering at a rate of 5L per hectare, at a time when the plant was actually in moisture stress due to lower than average rainfall.

Whilst there was no visible difference in the treated versus non-treated crop from post flowering through to harvest, the yield data proved that there was a difference of 510 kilos per hectare.
