Results extracted from bioteq-ouest trial report

Conclusion

  • Average increased yield in rice 1199 kg/Ha
  • Average yield increase 26.10%
  • Across 9 farms there was a value increase of $366.00

Observation

  • C-active Microbial Technology was used in addition to normal fertiliser practice in this instance.
  • Results are relatively consistent.
  • Results suggest C-active Microbial Technology performs well in low yielding and minimal input rice under subsistence farming conditions.
