The following paragraph will give you an overview of the trial results where Albit was used. Herewith you can find summaries of the scientific experiments, production tests and successful improvements achieved by our product.  The information listed below is conducted specifically for the Australian farmers. The active ingredient of Albit is produced in the roots of a plant-borne bacteria, these bacteria live in all the continents, meaning that the active substance is similar everywhere. However, Albit has shown a high performance in the regions where the climatic conditions are very extreme.

Field 1 and Field 2 Cotton Production Trial  – Foliar application with Albit

 

Details of the Trial:

The trial was carried out on the Sharmarel Farm in St. George which is a property managed by Scott Armstrong.  The objective of the trial was to determine how Albit affected the yield of cotton on field 1 and field 2 for the 2016 to 2017 cotton season:  

  • Field 1: 8 ha control + 10 ha Albit trial, 18 ha trial area.
  • Field 2: 27.35 ha control + 10 ha Albit trial, 37.35 ha trial area.

Product Used:

Treatment Details:

The first foliar of 50 mL Albit was used in the early part of vegetation period (4-5 nodes).  The application was completed on the 2nd of December 2016.  The second foliar of 50 mL Albit was sprayed on the 14th of December, early squaring.  A boom sprayer was used each time on both fields.  Albit was combined with Roundup Ready and sprayed.

Other Treatment Details:

Seed Variety, plant population 12 seeds per meter:

  • Field 1 variety Sicot 714 B3F.
  • Field 2 variety Sicot 74BRF.

The seeds were planted on the 4th of October 2016, there was  a total of twelve irrigations, the yield was harvested between March and April 2017.

The difference between the control and Albit was as follows:

  • Field 1: 0.61 bales/ha. Albit out yielded 0.61 bales/ha control field.
  • Field 2: 2.0 bales/ha. Albit out yielded 2.0 bales/ha control field.

Conclusion:

Albit helped to increase the yield despite the difficult weather conditions that the 2016 to 2017 season experienced.  At the beginning of the season it was extremely cold and the conditions for the germination of the seeds were not ideal.  In 2017 the cotton growers experienced long periods of extreme heat.  Albit helped to increase the yield by total of 26.1 bales/20ha in comparison to the control.

Albit also improves the effectiveness of herbicides. It helps to boost their characteristics and improves soil micro flora and growth conditions for the plants.  Albit works through the leaves and root system.

Cost & Profit analysis

 

Product cost per 1 ha is (1 foliar 50 ml x 2 = 100 ml), 100 ml of product cost $49/ha.

(Trial plot 10 ha) total cost would be $490, since there is no extra labor work required, the only activity required by farmer is mixing Albit with chemical of farmers choice and spraying it on the field. 2 sprays are required, both 50 ml per ha. Albit is sold in 1L bottles and it will cover 10ha for cotton farmers.

 

Field 1 yield increase was 0.61 bales

If base price for bale is $500/bale

$305 - $49 (cost of Albit) = $256 extra income with Albit per ha for Field 1

Total Net Income: $256 x 10ha = $2560

 

Field 2 yield increase was 2.0 bales

$908 - $49 (cost of Albit) = $859 extra income with Albit per ha for Field 2

Total Net Income: $859 x 10ha = $8590

 

Total net income for field 1 and 2 (20 ha) = 2560$ + 8590$ = 11,150$

Average yield  was 1.31 bales/ha over control

Evaluation of Albit for improved growth and yield of Sorghum in Queensland

Submitted by: Agrisearch Services Pty Ltd

 

Trial Planted: 21/Jan/2014 (trial planted after up front irrigation but managed as dryland crop beyond this). Atrazine applied at label rate after planting. Received rain day after planting but until next event which was late March – a very hot dry season.

Harvest: 28/May/14

Albit was used in different variations:

Variation 1 ALBIT seed treatment + in-furrow - the amount of Albit used 300ml/ha - yield increase -  34,7%;

Variation 2  ALBIT seed treatment gave yield increase of 22,4% – the amount of Albit used - 120ml/t of seeds.

 

The protocol of the trials can be provided on request.

 

When using Albit in the seed treatment, each seed receives a so-called start-up package: a set of micro and macro minerals as well as the active ingredient PHB. The active ingredient of Albit is a microbial biopolymer poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) that stimulates plant growth and protects it from diseases and dryness.

Previous trials on sorghum in Russia show that using Albit as a seed treatment can averagely increase yield 20 - 30% if to compare with untreated seeds. The results in Australia were as good as in Russia confirming the fact that Albit works on every continent. Thus, the results of the experiments were approved in Australia, which is obtained from elsewhere. Australia got the test conditions be particularly harsh growing conditions. 

Both in Russia and Australia the most cost-effective option was the one where Albit was used as a seed treatment.

 

4. Trial example: Albit used on canola cultivation, Estonia 2015          

 

The results were achieved on the productional field that was 39 hectares in size. Albit was used on the whole field.The crop turned out to be 6.86 t/ha, which exceeds the Guinness record for the cultivation of winter canola. Scientifical experiments confirmed that Albit helps to increase the oil content in canola as well as its yield by up to 40%.

5. Trial example: cotton, USA 2015         

 

The best trial results with Albit on cotton were recorded in USA in 2015 where Albit gave the yield increase of 22% and in 2010 in Uzbekistan - 15,9%. In both cases Albit was used in seed treatments: 50 ml/t and in spraying - 50ml/ha.

 

6. Trial example: rice in Krasnodar, Russia 2014         

 

Albit was applied as a seed treatment 100 ml/t and in spraying 50 ml/ha. Albit gave a total yield increase of 0, 9 t/ha - 12,7%.

SUMMARY

 In 2014, National Rice Research Institute (Krasnodar) studied the efficacy of bio-stimulant Albit on rice in field trials. Climatic conditions of the year were favorable, development of rice blast disease (Pyricularium oryzae) and other diseases were practically not observed.

Small size plot trial (plots 1.35 × 12.5 m (16.875 m2)) was conducted in 4 replicates.

Rice variety - Diamant, rice cultivation technology - standard. Sowing date: May 7th, harvest date: September 30th.

 Albit was applied as follows:

  1. Control — standard conventional system of cultivation and protection of rice (use of fungicide for seed treatment + spraying with herbicide);
  2. Control + Seed treatment with Albit 50 ml/t;
  3. Control + Seed treatment with Albit 100 ml/t;
  4. Control + Seed treatment with Albit 100 ml/t + spraying with Albit 40 ml/ha, together with herbicide;
  5. Control (without seed treatment with fungicide) + seed treatment with Albit 100 ml/t + spraying with Albit 40 ml/ha, together with herbicide.

 Application of Albit exerted significant positive influence on the field germination of rice seeds (rise from 51.8 % in control to ca. 60 % in variants with Albit treatment). A substantial increase in grains weight from 1 plant, reducing sterility of spikelets, and increase of grain/biomass ratio, were also observed in variants with Albit application. The main factor increasing the yield should be recognized as an increase in plant density per unit of area. Seed treatment with Albit not only significantly increased the germination, but very likely also increased the resistance of plants to the toxic effects of seed treatment with fungicide and spraying with herbicide.

Application of Albit on rice had significantly positive effect on crop yield.

Grain yield in control was 7.1 t/ha. The most effective of the application variants was presowing treatment with Albit at a rate of 100 ml/t. It provided statistically significant yield increase of 0.9 t/ha (12.7 % over control) whereas application rate 50 ml/t gave 3.2 % to the control. Spraying of rice did not cause any significant effect on yield and its parameters.

Replacement of chemical fungicide (a.i. thiamethoxam, fludioxonil, and difenoconazole) for Аlbit in seed treatment increased rice yield by 10.2 % as compared to chemical fungicide application. Virtually, it means that fungicide may be replaced with Albit. However, fungicidal action of both chemical fungicide and Albit could not be assessed due to the absence of rice blast this year.

 

7. Trial example: cereals 

 

Cereal cultivation examples are from Europe and Asia, where the winter crops sown in the autumn, frozen in the winter continue t o grow in spring. Albit is able to increase the yield of cereals by 10-20% on average in comparison with the control. In absolute terms it is 300 - 1000 kg/ha. Albit also increases the protein content by up to 5.1%.

 

The yield of summer grains are lower in Europe and Asia than the yield of winter grains, but the percentage of the  increases in yields has been of the same magnitude as for winter grains.

 

Australian winter crops do not freeze for vegetation period, so it is more suitable to compare the results with summer crops. In Estonia the best year for the spring wheat was in 2014 - 7.0 t/ha and winter wheat - 9.4 t/ha. In both cases the growers used Albit.

 

8. Trial example: vine in Czech Republic, 2014            

Conclusion:

Albit has always promoted strong recovery of vine from hail and delivered higher yields as compared to control. Vineyards in South Moravian Region are often exposed to hails, but in the previous years, when Albit was not used, no such recovery was ever observed.

9. Trial example: Albit used on vegetables in Romania, 2014            

ABSTRACT OF TESTING IN THE FIRST YEAR OF FERTILIZER ALBIT FOR DIFFERENT CULTURES FOR AUTHORIZATION FOR TEMPORARY USE FOR ROMANIAN AGRICULTURE

 

Scientific research under contract no. V2612014 concluded between l.N.C.D.P.A.P.M.-JCPA

(Bucharest) and SC ALB [COM LLC (Iasi), was organized to test fertilizer Albit®’ on different

cultures for temporal'} authorization for use in agriculture in Romania.

The composition of the tested fertilizer Albit is shown in table 1.

Testing methodology consisted of the application of the solution o f Albit (spraying of plants):

3 treatments with diluted solution with concentrations o f 0.02 % (= 2 mLlO I) and the amount of

working solution 5000 1/ha for each treatment.

Testing was done in 2014 on tomato and cucumber (drip irrigation), and cabbage (foliar

spraying).

The varieties of plants and maintenance work were optimal. The crop-specific tests were

performed.

Trial results are as follows:

  1. Tomatoes grown in greenhouse on chernozem were treated 3 times with Albit during

vegetation in dosage of 1 L/ha. The yield was 11488 kg/ha ( i 38,1 % lo control) or 3829 kg per

liter of Albit

  1. Cucumbers grown in greenhouse on chernozem were treated 3 times with Albit  during

vegetation in dosage of 1 L/ha. The yield was 10247 kg/ha (+ 31,6 % to control) or 3475 kg per

liter of Albit

  1. Cabbage grown in greenhouse on chernozem were treated 3 times with Albit during

vegetation in dosage of 1 L/ha. The yield was 11 1 74 kg (t 35,2 % to control) or 3724 kg per

liter of Albit

 

 

10. Trial example: Albit used on vegetables in Romania, 2014            

 

The data that we have received show that Albit restructures the rhizosphere microbiota’s metabolism by activating the bio-energetic processes that increases the adaptivity of agricultural ecosystems to biotic and abiotic stress factors.

Period of protection: The effect of Albit treatment (three times 250 ml/ha) lasts up to 1.5 months.

Additional information: Albit is not phytotoxic.

Additional information about the form of treatment: not available.

 

Conclusions:

  1. The All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Floriculture and Subtropical Crops in the course of the field experiments found a positive effect of treating kiwi plants with Albit TPS. As an evidently multifunctional agent, Albit caused a wide range of positive effects on the Actinidia deliciosa agrobiocenosis, increasing its resistance to phytopathogens (Phytophtora cactorum), the activity of the rhizosphere non-pathological microorganisms and the yield of the plant.

  2. The high protective effect of the agent was registered under abnormally high precipitation even for a subtropical zone. The most efficient form of treating is in the early stage (less than 11.5 percent) phytophthora in Deliciosa is three sprays of 250 ml/ha of Albit. When introducing Albit into the soil the most efficient dose is 500 ml/ha (three times). This dose of Albit was as the most efficient chemical fungicide (three treatments), i.e. the efficiency was 70-71 percent at a reference disease of 22.8 percent.

  3. Albit’s ability to improve the phytosanitary state (infection background) of soil is a very important advantage of the formula. By introducing 500-1000 ml/ha Albit in the kiwi plantation soil we reduced the number of Phytophtora cactorum conidia in the soil by 52-56 percent.

  4. Albit did not only inhibit pathogen growth in the soil, it also increased (at 500 ml/ha) the biological activity of the soil microbiota – the actual, potential, and bacteria breathing rate. Albit restored the microbiotic activity of the kiwi plantation soil up to the natural unaffected level (forest level), while the chemical fungicide quite the opposite dramatically reduced the microbiotic activity of the root zone and its resistance to potential infections. We found that Albit improved the phytosanitary and ecological parameters of the agricultural ecosystem, stimulated non-pathogen microflora in the kiwi rhizosphere, and increased the agricultural ecosystem’s resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses.

  5. Maximum yield of Actinidia deliciosa was achieved by spraying the plants with 250 ml/ha of Albit and introducing the formula in the soil at the same time. The yield was 2.9 centner per ha higher than at the reference field.
