Tank-Mix with X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate

Get more bushels and maximize each pass over your field by tank-mixing X-Cyte™ and Harvest More™ Urea Mate with your fungicide application.

Applying X-Cyte™ with your fungicide can help to increase grain density and kernel weight, while decreasing kernel abortion.

As a source of cytokinin, X-Cyte™  fights yield loss caused by decreased cytokinin production that can affect corn during the warmer months. Cytokinin production starts to break down at 87° F in row crops, causing kernel abortion, tip-back, 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 the market-leader in consistency and performance, limiting yield loss due to cytokinin deficiency. It is an EPA-registered plant growth regulator and yield stimulant.

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.

Dear Stoller Associates,

 

One year ago, today, our founder, Jerry H. Stoller passed away.  While we miss his presence, his wit and his wisdom, his dedication to make the world a better place for his fellow man lives on in each of us.  Jerry touched the lives of people all around the world by sharing his knowledge and helping them understand the language of plants.

These are challenging times, but, as Jerry taught us, every challenge is an opportunity, and success is a result of hard work, knowledge and perseverance. We will continue to honor Jerry’s legacy by continuing our work, empowering plants and empowering people.

Jerry viewed each of us as part of his family and would be proud to know that we are continuing to work towards fulfilling his vision for the Stoller company.  Stoller family, let us all take a moment today to respectfully celebrate and honor the memory of Jerry H. Stoller.

 

Sincerely,


Guillermo de la Borda,
Stoller President and CEO

 

Hot or dry conditions cause stress to crops, leading to decreased yield come harvest. Trust Stoller to help you protect your yield when things heat up.

Hot, dry conditions cause a decrease in nutrient uptake, plant growth, and overall yield. Heat also causes the crucial hormone, cytokinin, to break down in the plant. Cytokinin starts to break down in small grains at 67 degrees and 87 degrees in other crops.

Why is this important?

The breakdown of cytokinin is what typically leads to tip-back and kernel loss in corn, flower abortion and pod loss in soybeans, and seed abortion in small grains.

Stoller’s X-Cyte™ provides cytokinin which helps restore hormone balance and combat yield loss due to high temperatures. It is the market-leader in consistency and performance, limiting yield loss due to cytokinin deficiency. X-Cyte™ is an EPA-registered plant growth regulator and yield stimulant.

Help prevent abiotic stress caused by hot, dry conditions by applying Bio-Forge® Advanced. Bio-Forge® Advanced provides a cost-effective solution to combat abiotic stress and enhance plant growth. It combines three modes of action into one product, creating an unmatched level of abiotic stress management for optimizing plant productivity all season long. With abiotic stress factors taken care of, crops can use their energy toward productivity, growth and performance.

Crops need nutrients all season, especially during stressful conditions. Harvest More™ Urea Mate is a complete fertilizer that provides 11 key nutrients for the plant in a foliar spray or through irrigation.

Get ahead of crop stress this season.

Planting in less than ideal conditions causes abiotic crop stress, leading to yield loss at harvest. Trust Stoller to help you manage abiotic stress and maximize yield.

The first 24 to 48 hours after a seed is planted are critical to determining the yield potential of a crop. Abiotic stress limits nutrient uptake, plant growth, and seed development. Abiotic stress includes stress due to temperature extremes, excessive rain, hail, or dry conditions. In fact, 70% of your crop’s yield potential can be lost due to these weather-related stressors.

Bio-Forge®  Advanced mixes easily with starter fertilizer and provides a cost-effective solution to fight yield-limiting abiotic stress. It combines three stress management modes of action, creating an unmatched level of stress management for optimizing plant productivity all season long. With abiotic stress factors taken care of, crops can use their energy toward productivity, growth and performance.

Fight abiotic stress while you feed your crop by applying Bio-Forge® Advanced in-furrow at planting with your starter fertilizer. Contact your Stoller representative today for more information on maximizing performance while planting in stressful conditions.

Maximize each pass you make across the field by tank-mixing your herbicides and fungicides with Stoller.

Stoller has a full line of products to help you maximize yield by minimizing abiotic stress, improving nutrient uptake and utilization, and promoting plant productivity. Many of these products are tank-mix compatible, so you can increase yield without making additional passes over your field.

Bio-Forge® Advanced combines three modes of action for an unmatched level of abiotic crop stress management to protect against non-living environmental stressors that decrease yield.

Harvest More™ Urea Mate is the most complete fertilizer on the market with 11 key nutrients for optimal growth throughout the season. A plant’s yield potential is only as strong as its weakest nutrient link. Harvest More™ Urea Mate is formulated to provide maximum nutrient availability and utilization throughout the vegetative growing phases of your crop.

X-Cyte™ is an EPA-registered plant growth regulator and yield stimulant. X-Cyte™ provides cytokinin which is crucial for vegetative growth, reproductive development, and abiotic stress mitigation.

Fortified Stimulate® Yield Enhancer Plus is the only EPA-registered product with four essential plant growth hormones. Fortified Stimulate Yield Enhancer Plus helps plants maintain optimum hormone balance and sets the foundation for higher yields.

Contact your Stoller representative for more information about which products and timings will best fit your operation.

Tank-Mix Stoller with Your Herbicide Application

The components of yield for your crop can be influenced and determined during the early vegetative stages. Maximize yield by including Stoller in your post-emergence (herbicide) application to manage stress and provide critical nutrients.

Kris Ehler, agronomist and high yield soybean advisor in Illinois, cited research that shows soybeans set their yield from V2 to V3.

“At V2, that plant will determine how many branches it will have. By V3, that plant will determine the max number of nodes that it will produce. It won’t produce above that number, but it can scale back depending on the environment,” said Ehler.

Stoller can help to maximize yield during this critical stage of development by providing your crops the nutrients and abiotic stress management they need to protect against yield loss.

Bio-Forge® Advanced combines three modes of action for an unmatched level of abiotic crop stress management to protect against non-living environmental stressors that decrease yield.

Harvest More™ Urea Mate is the most complete fertilizer on the market with 11 key nutrients for optimal growth throughout the season. A plant’s yield potential is only as strong as its weakest nutrient link. Harvest More™ Urea Mate is formulated to provide maximum nutrient availability and utilization throughout the vegetative growing phases of your crop.

Bio-Forge® Advanced and Harvest More™ Urea Mate are tank-mix compatible with most herbicides and fungicides, so you can increase yield without making additional passes over your field.

Three-time Illinois Soybean Association yield contest winner Jason Lakey on what it takes to break through the 100-bushel yield barrier:

“We are always looking for ways to increase our yields and Stoller products have been helpful in accomplishing our yield goals over the last three years.”

“In tough times, I need more bushels to make up for low commodity prices. You won’t get more bushels by cutting back on these yield-enhancing products. I’m convinced Stoller is at the top of the game when it comes to increasing yield.”

Soybean Yields

2015: 101 bushels/acre

2016: 105 bushels/acre

2017: 110.3 bushels/acre

“High yield starts from the time you plant the seed. I focus on keeping every plant happy all season and minimizing crop stress. I know there is a yield difference. We’ve had amazing yields. There’s definitely a benefit to using Stoller products or I wouldn’t be doing it.”

Stoller Announces Organic Product to Control Invasive Spotted Lanternfly

OMRI Listed Golden Pest Spray Oil Receives EPA Approval

 

Houston, TX, March 31, 2020:  Stoller USA, a leading plant health company, announced the addition of the spotted lanternfly to the Golden Pest Spray Oil label for organic use on the insect’s egg masses.

 

Spotted lanternfly is an invasive pest from Asia that primarily feeds on tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima) but poses a significant threat in the U.S. to agricultural and forest health. Adults and nymphs use their sucking mouthparts to feed on the sap of more than 70 plant species including grapes, hops, maple, walnut, fruit trees and ornamentals. They can feed in such large numbers that they stress plants, weakening the plants’ resistance to disease and other insects. The sticky honeydew they secrete can also be a nuisance for people during outside activities where large numbers of the insects are present.

 

The spotted lanternfly was first discovered in Pennsylvania in 2014 and has since been found in a small number of surrounding states. If allowed to spread in the U.S., it could seriously impact the nation’s orchard, grape and forestry industries. Golden Pest Spray Oil can be used as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy to control this insect and slow its spread.

 

Stoller’s Golden Pest Spray Oil has been used successfully for several years to control gypsy moth when applied to the egg masses before they hatch. In recent trials, Golden Pest Spray Oil also provided control of spotted lanternfly when applied to its egg masses. This prevents further plant damage as compared to insecticides which are applied at later lifecycle stages, after plant damage has already occurred.

 

“The full extent of economic damage this pest could cause is alarming. Golden Pest Spray Oil is OMRI Listed, so it is safe and easy to use as an organic alternative to other pesticides. And, it provides superior control of spotted lanternfly when used as directed. We are excited to provide growers with a product to control this invasive pest and slow its spread.” – Russell Thomas, Stoller USA General Manager.

 

Stoller is a global plant health company headquartered in Houston, Texas with a 50-year history of helping growers increase the productivity of their crops by providing knowledge and products that optimize nutrition, promote proper phytohormone balance and promote optimum yield potential.
