Corn: AGGRAND User Gets Record Yield


Versatile, convenient, effective. AGGRAND Natural fertilizers are organically certified liquid nourishment for commercial and private growers of grains, vegetables and flowers.

Farmer Richard Ward of Seaman, Ohio uses a combination of AGGRAND 4-3-3 and AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime to get the best, tastiest and biggest corn crops.

Ward has used AGGRAND 4-3-3 and AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime for more than seven years on a variety of crops with great success.

Richard Ward"I've been farming my entire life and I’ve never experienced the consistently impressive results I’ve had
with AGGRAND 4-3-3 and AGGRAND Natural Liquid
Lime. It exceeds all of my expectations.”


Ward faced many of the pitfalls common to farmers in the 2007 growing season. To begin with, he planted his corn late. The late planting was followed almost immediately by a lot of rain that led to unusually high temperatures for his area in Ohio.

During the hot spell, Ward used a higher concentrate of AGGRAND 4-3-3 and AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime because he knew he only had time to fertilize once. Using a 200 gallon spray tank mixed with 4 gallons of 4-3-3 and 4 gallons of liquid lime he fertilized the five acres of corn.

“I only needed to fertilize once,” Ward said. “The corn never stopped growing.”

By the Fourth of July the corn was knee high. The third week of July it was chest high and by the first week of August the corn was over his head. The corn tasseled in the first and second week of September and was matured (denting) by the third to fourth week of that month.

"These cobs are as big around as soda pop cans and are 12 to 14 inches long,” Ward said. “The yield was great because there were so many kernels on each cob."

 


Corn: Healthy Corn Proves the Power of AGGRAND

AGGRAND fertilizers work wonders on corn and AMSOIL Dealer Bill Moulton has proof. His Cherokee Pride ornamental corn is usually about nine-and-a-half feet tall, but by adding a combination of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3, Liquid Bonemeal 0-12-0 and Liquid Lime to his normal fertilization routine, this summer his corn matured to a height of about 12 feet.

strongest ever.” -AMSOIL Dealer Bill Moulton


Richard A. Ward of Seaman, Ohio experience similar success with AGGRAND. He planted three rows of corn on July 1, 2000. He used three ounces of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3 for every gallon of water and applied it to the soil after seeding. He also planted three rows of corn using his regular chemical fertilizer.

“I applied the AGGRAND fertilizer two more times as a foliar application,” said Ward, “once when the corn was 14 to 16 inches tall, and once more when it was tasselling. After treating this corn with AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3 it really took off, and it has not stopped growing since.”

By September 2, 2000, the AGGRAND corn was between six and seven feet tall. The corn that was given chemical fertilizer was only three feet tall.

“I have done a lot of field experiments with other fertilizers,” said Ward, “but I’ve never seen anything work as well as this AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer 4-3- 3. I also do deer and turkey food plots and I will be using AGGRAND 4-3-3 exclusively as my fertilizer for these plots. I wish I had heard of AGGRAND a long time ago, but late is better than never.

“The AGGRAND 4-3-3 is so impressive that people slow down to look at my corn and food plots. Then they stop to ask what I did to get them to look so good. I tell them the difference is that I use AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer.”
