How can farmers improve yield without increasing production costs? Read on or watch the video to find out how BiOWiSH made it easy for these farmers to improve rice production.
In Vietnam, rice is a diet staple and an essential part of the economy. The country’s different soil types and growing conditions demand innovation to increase production. Unfortunately, new technology in rice cultivation can be too expensive to be practical. Advancements often require new infrastructure or increased labor.
At BiOWiSH, we understand that new technology must be easy for farmers to use. To see how BiOWiSH® Crop Technology worked in Vietnam, we conducted trials over the course of two growing seasons. The results were clear: BiOWiSH® is easy to use, and it improves rice yield.
Rice Farming in Vietnam Made Better with BiOWiSH®
Nguyen Thanh Dieu is a paddy rice farmer who found success with BiOWiSH® Crop Technology in the Hậu Giang Province.
Watch the video below to see how BiOWiSH® improved his rice paddy or read on for the highlights.
Over the course of two growing seasons, BiOWiSH® Crop Technology:
- Increased rice yield up to 13%
- Developed larger and deeper root systems
- Increased tiller and panicle development
- Developed plants with a higher percentage of full grains
BiOWiSH offers easy-to-use new technology in rice cultivation
On top of the production benefits BiOWiSH® Crop Technology brings, it is simple to apply. When fertilizer is coated with BiOWiSH® Crop Technology, farmers apply it the same way they always have. As Nguyen Thanh Dieu noticed, BiOWiSH® Crop Green Choice turns fertilizer a pleasant green color. That way, farmers can see the difference.
Dieu also noticed that “BiOWiSH® is very efficient at decreasing fertilizer input.” Because BiOWiSH® enhances the efficiency of fertilizer, we help small farmers reduce their fertilizer costs to make their farms more profitable.
BiOWiSH® Crop Technology works by stimulating the native microbes in the soil. As a result, BiOWiSH® leaves more nutrients in the soil. In fact, over time, BiOWiSH® Crop Technology actually improves soil productivity.
