Accelerating growth from seed to maturity
Launched in 2020, Xbeet® enrich 200 is a proven and trusted cutting-edge seed technology. Xbeet enrich 200 promotes early plant growth and crop development. Independent verified testing* shows that Xbeet enrich 200 outperforms its market-leading predecessor Xbeet enrich 100.
What is Xbeet enrich 200?
Xbeet® enrich 200 helps young plants reach the critical 12-leaf stage as quickly as possible. This ensures sugar beets have the natural defences needed to cope with later stressors, such as suboptimal environments and unpredictable weather conditions.
How is it different from Xbeet enrich 100?
Xbeet enrich 200 includes all the effective ingredients of Xbeet enrich 100, with the added benefit of an innovative plant-derived biostimulant. In combination with the elicitor – a microbial signature that triggers systemic acquired resistance – the biostimulant boosts early plant growth, helping crops deal with pressures of pests, diseases, and competitive weed situations.
What is biostimulant?
Biostimulants are defined as “materials, other than fertilisers, that promote plant growth when applied in small quantities”. Using a biostimulant has been proven to boost early growth, helping plants during the most vulnerable stage of development.
Xbeet enrich 200 trial results
Small plot trials have shown an average yield benefit of 1.4% over Xbeet enrich 100 during 3 years of trials.
This yield increase results in an additional yield of 1.1 tonnes per hectare.
Small plot trials have shown a significant yield benefit of 1.4% from Xbeet enrich 200 vs Xbeet enrich 100 during 3 years of trials.
Strip trial data from 2018 highlighted an average of 2.5% increase in yield (graph 4) across three trial sites.
This yield increase resulted in 1.9 additional tonnes per hectare.
Commercial scale strip trials in 2018 & 2019 have given an average of 2.5% increase in yield across three trial sites in the UK. Xbeet enrich 200 yield benefit over Xbeet enrich 100.
