Sweet Corn

In 1997, researchers at the University of Florida conducted a trial using GrowPlex™ on sweet corn in Gainesville.



The trial consisted of two treatments. The first treatment, Control, included the Grower’s standard fertility program. The second treatment, GrowPlex, included the Grower’s standard fertility program and GrowPlex® added at a rate of 4 oz per acre in 4 applications during the growing season.


  • Treated rows experienced as much as a 69% increase in dry bushel weight with GrowPlex® compared to the control.

  • Treated rows experienced early health and vigor, which carried through to harvest and resulted in higher yield and net return.
