Treated and untreated corn stalks
Treated and untreated corn stalks
Sign up for our free webinar with No-Till Farmer on building soil organic matter. The event begins at 10AM Central on September 9.
Chandler Biocat 1000 is a liquid enzyme product applied directly on crop residue after harvest. Biocat 1000 accelerates the decomposition of crop residue by stimulating the growth of the beneficial bacteria, fungi, and other organisms that break down organic compounds in the soil. Biocat 1000 initially works to decay the cellulose on the inside of corn stalks and other plant residue (see the photos of treated and untreated corn stalks on the left). The outer shell of the plant residue is left as soil cover to reduce erosion. Later, Biocat 1000 enhances decomposition of the lignin in the outer shell of the stalk, and the remaining crop residue is easily handled by planting or tillage equipment. Biocat 1000 also releases nutrients in the residue for use by the next crop and helps to build soil organic matter. Biocat 1000 is non-toxic when used as recommended, and treated residue may be safely grazed by livestock. The product may be applied by itself or in a tank-mix with most liquid fertilizers and pesticides.
