In the summer of 2012 after wheat harvest, Wessuc injected liquid biosolids in the South East corner of a farm located in Brant County Ontario.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to apply the entire usable area. While it was disappointing to leave areas of the field without biosolids it provided the opportunity to collect crop response comparison data. Using Google Earth imagery and yield monitoring data of the biosolids injected vs. the farmer’s attempt to match the fertility levels of those biosolids commercially we were able to track the crop yield response.
The area where biosolids were applied showed a significantly positive yield response compared to the areas that received other amendments.
Economic Advantages- Highlights
The farmer ultimately experienced an increase in profits by using biosolids vs. commercially available amendments.
