Terreplenish® Natural Growth Benefits for Corn and Soy Beans
User: Roy (Central Illinois Farmer), Corn and Soy Beans
Description: “We experienced proven excess nitrogen in our crops. We use Terreplenish now on everything. The results are impressive greener healthy crops, bigger yields and richer replenished soil. We even use Terreplenish to treat my septic field. Tereplenish® is a great investment with many farmer applications.”
Nitrogen Corn Stalk Analysis:
Terreplenish® Proven Nitrogen-Fixing Results
User: DairyLand (Acadia, Wisconsin)
Description: Feed and Foliage Report (after 6 months). Before Stalks (untreated) measured Dry-Basis 252.00 ppm. After Stalks treated with Terreplenish measured Dry-Basis 601.00 ppm.

Farmer Observations: A Field Study
"This is our third session using Terreplenish. Whenever we’ve tested the nitrogen stalk, the residual nitrogen found was around 400 parts per million for the untreated and 600 to 625 for the Terreplenish treated stalks. This showed that Terreplenish is helping our plants hold significantly more nitrogen and putting excess nitrogen into the ground and continuously feeding it throughout the whole growing process."
"We had nitrogen testing on one acre strips through the middle of a field that had never been treated. Then we applied one gallon of Terreplenish to the acre in the Spring and one in Fall, we went through the field and did test strips with no nitrogen side dressing. Then we applied Terreplenish 65 pounds, 90 pounds, and 50 pounds in that order. We found that the 65 pound was the magic number. For the no nitrogen, we were at 211.78 bushels, for the 65 pounds we had 215.35 bushels on that acre, a 4.2 bushel increase in yield."
"Terreplenish is putting the nitrogen on in place of a side dressing. In using Terreplenish, I can cut back on production costs by slowing down the application of nitrogen. As I said, apply one gallon per acre in the Fall then your nitrogen is going to last longer in your soil and it's going to require less applications over a period of time."
"Regarding other nitrogen enriching agriculture methods -"Farmers plant the cover crop and till it in. Then, they go out with a roller and roll the tops down which snaps the top of their crops and keeps the plants from future growth. They're basically making decay in their fields by using the cover crop in hopes of adding enough of the soil borne bacteria back into the ground to provide nitrogen. You can do this with applications of Terreplenish and get stronger and healthier plants."
"I've noticed that the corn and beans that we treated versus non treated, the plants are super green because they're getting the nitrogen. They're stronger stalks and bigger leaves, even their tassels are much broader and bigger and from what we've seen..."

"I've noticed that the corn and beans that we treated versus non treated, the plants are super green because they're getting the nitrogen. They're stronger stalks and bigger leaves, even their tassels are much broader and bigger and from what we've seen it varies with the hybrid. We’ve planted some LG and it didn't seem to affect the growth the size of the plant or anything else. The ear was still really good and we found that the pioneer triple stack is the magic behind the seed since you have your refuge and everything right in the seed you don't have to plant a separate refuge. You just get triple stack and throw it in the field and Terreplenish seems to love it. Some farmers are stuck on brands. Some people they don't like lG some people don't like Pioneer."
"For me, I wish plowing would come back and farmers would polish up their moldboards, get out there and turn that dirt over. Even if they did it every five years they would see a major improvement and have fresh soil all the time. When I apply a hundred pounds per acre of a granular nitrogen that leaches down to just above the hard clay layer and just sits there, you can see a clear line of the nitrogen rich soil right down on the clay layer, on some places it can reach up to three feet."
"You're never going to be able to reach that unless you have a system in place that brings the nutrients back to the top, the only thing that's going to do that is the right colonization of the bacteria in order to aerate the soil all the way down, colonize the root zone and assimilate all the nutrients in order to start working it’s way back to the top of the soil. That's how Terreplenish works in a nutshell, a lot of good things here!" –– AN ILLINOIS FARMER
