Xbeet enrich 100

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.

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

Xbeet® enrich100 achieved an average yield increase of 1.5% in comparison to Xbeet® plus, across 5 years of trials

Strip trials

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.
