Maximize Rice Yield
Increase rice yield by applying X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate with your herbicide and fungicide applications.
When applied at tillering, X-Cyte™ can help to promote more tillers and thicker stems. Thicker stems can lead to better standability to aid in the decrease of the occurrence of lodging.
In research done in 2018 and 2019 by Delta Crop and Research, Inc. in West Central Mississippi and the University of Arkansas near Stuttgart, using X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate at tillering increased yield by an average of 5.8 bushels per acre.
At Flag Leaf:
Applying X-Cyte™ at flag leaf stage can lead to more florets, more grains per head, better grain fill, higher test weight, and ultimately, higher yield. In three years (2017-2019) of research done by Delta Crop and Research, Inc. in West Central Mississippi and the University of Arkansas near Stuttgart, using X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate at flag leaf stage resulted in an average increase of 7.8 bushels per acre.
As a source of cytokinin, X-Cyte™ fights yield loss caused by decreased cytokinin production that can affect rice during the warmer months. Cytokinin production starts to break down at 67° F in small grains, causing seed abortion and decreased yields. X-Cyte™ combats this yield loss by supplying the crop with the cytokinin it needs to maintain proper hormone balance.
X-Cyte™ is an EPA-registered plant growth regulator and yield stimulant containing a key plant growth hormone – cytokinin. X-Cyte™ optimizes rice yield by promoting cell division and plant development.
Harvest More™ Urea Mate is the most complete fertilizer on the market with 11 key nutrients for optimal growth throughout the season. This product also has a low pH that makes it ideal for tank-mixing. Recent data shows many in-season fungicide applications perform better in an acidic pH environment.
X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate make great additions to foliar applications because they are tank-mix compatible with most herbicides and fungicides, so you can increase yield without making additional passes over your field.
