8 years of independent replicated research trials have proven CarbonWorks RSTC 17 to be the leading corn and soybean starter.
While companies focus on getting their salt-based starter fertilizers off the seed because of poor germination and yield loss, we are placing ours directly on the seed to enhance germination, establish more uniform stands, accelerate plant growth and root development, and increase yields.
*Based on the 5-year average yield increase of 8.9 bu/ac at a corn price of $3.72/bu.
*Based on the 5-year average yield increase of 4.2 bu/ac at a soybean price of $9.04/bu.
The seed sphere is the critical area surrounding the seed that determines whether or not a seed will germinate and how rapidly the plant will emerge and grow.
Think of the heat released by an active compost pile. The carbon in CarbonWorks RSTC 17 feeds similar microbes in your soil, helping them thrive and thereby increasing the amount of heat they release. This heat helps germinate your seeds faster.
The oxygen in CarbonWorks RSTC 17 promotes nearly perfect germination while increasing bacteria respiration in saturated soils.
The hydrogen in CarbonWorks RSTC 17 fuels your seeds with hydrogen energy, giving each seedling an extra boost to reach the sunlight.
We recommend applying 24 – 32 oz/ac of CarbonWorks RSTC 17 with a minimum of 5 gal/ac of water in-furrow at planting. And because CarbonWorks RSTC 17 is a salt-free starter, you should place it right on the seed.
