Stimulating the plant’s natural defences
Xbeet® enrich100 is a combination of innovative pellet and an elicitor treatment that promotes stronger plants and boosts their natural defence mechanisms. The pesticide-free formula promotes healthy soil and improves plant vitality, ultimately leading to more yield from your crop.
What is an elicitor?
An elicitor is a compound that enhances the plant’s natural defence. The elicitor found in the Xbeet® enrich series sets off chain reactions that trigger enhanced responses to biotic and abiotic stressors, including pathogenic fungi, bacteria and adverse weather conditions.
Promotes plant emergence
More even canopy cover
Helps deliver consistent, higher-yielding crops
Trialled and tested for UK climate
Independently verified results
Xbeet® enrich100 trial results
Small plot trials
Xbeet® enrich100 demonstrated an average increased in yield of 1.5% over the control sample (graph 1). Germains performed small plot trials over four years, with six replications of the treatment across six trial sites.
Trial design: Small randomised blocks
The strip trials studied the performance of Xbeet® enrich100 in large replicated strips across the field. This helped measure results in variable field conditions. The trials achieved a 4.4% increase in yield (graph 2) under conditions that were as close to normal farming practices as possible.
Trial design:Pellets are planted with a commercial drill, fields are managed using standard agronomic practice and roots are harvested with a commercial six-row harvester.
