Reduced Presence of Nematodes, Hydrelia, and Fungi on Rice in Ecuador
Date: February 2021 (summer)
Details: The Kyminasi Plant Booster (KPB) technology was installed on a rice field in January of 2021.
Only 45 days after transplanting, it was already visible that the KPB-treated rice had greater stem lengths than the control rice. The KPB rice also had healthier root systems with a reduced presence of nematodes or hydrelia and no presence of fungi as compared to the control rice. The KPB crop did not suffer stress, and there was an absence of any damage caused by fungi; so better production yields were expected as compared to the control rice. This farm was able to reduce nitrogen fertilization down to 0%. The KPB-treated rice was able to be harvested 13 days earlier than the control rice. Overall, higher rice yields and better grain quality were obtained.
