PULSES
Since using Best, I have noticed that my canola on stubble will bloom up to 10 days longer than a neighbour's canola on summer fallow when seeded the same day with equivalent inputs. It is especially noticeable when a hot, dry spell hits during flowering. It also holds and continues flowering several days ahead of fields without Best products.

Jeff Graham, Kindersley SK
I have been using the Best Farming System for two years on my wheat crop. I have noticed increased protein (1%) on the finished grain. My bushel weight increased, there was no lodging due to the strength of my straw. Underground I noticed, a larger root mass. Best was safe and easy to handle.

Alex Carruthers, Sturgeon County AB
I have been using Best on my wheat crop for 4 years. My wheat crop looks great; the heads are the biggest I have ever had on a wheat crop. My brix reading was 15-15.5% the best it has ever been. Pesticide consumption was down; my soil was mellow (air soil), no compacted; I have noticed soil improvement each year.

Cotton


A commercial farm near Windy Station, New South Wales, Austailia conducted a trial experiment by reducing its application of anhydrous amonia, traditionally used to increase soil nitrogen levels, and replacing with TM Agricultural treatments. Leaves were collected and analyzed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) which found that the TM Agricultural treated plants had equivalent nitrogen levels when compared to the anhydrous amonia treated plants. CSIRO also noted that the nitrogen levels in both were ideal for producing high-yielding cotton plants.

Seed Germination

Helping Seeds Flourish

The health of the plant is just as important in the early stages of growth and development as early health is in humans. The first roots emerging from the seedlings, in the early stages of seed germination, are responsible for establishing the plant firmly in the soil and also for the absorption of nutrients from the soil. During the process of early plant establishment in the soil, seedlings require essential nutrients to be readily available, extremely close to those first roots. Nutrients also help to keep the plants resistant to soil-borne infections.

Easy to Use

Seed Germination can be used for all crops at the time of seeding. Farmers with the option to store treated seeds, may also use in pre-seeding. Pretreated seeds like canola however, may be an exception. While overall performance may be influenced by factors such as climate and variable crop management practices, testimony from Farmers show that results are consistent when Seed Germination treatment is applied to different crops. Detailed directions on the use and storage are provided on the product label.

Increases Root Mass

Best's Seed Germination was developed after meticulous research was conducted on enhancing the rate of seed germination and better plant establishment. If there is more root mass, then the plant is allowed to establish well in soil and grow healthier and stronger. This product provides required nutrients needed by young plant roots in the early stages of development. As the nutrient absorption capacity is significantly higher in seeds treated with Seed Germination, they take an early lead in growth and development. Producers that have used Seed Germinaton relay that treated crops emerge from the ground earlier. All ingredients used in the manufacture of Seed Germination are derived from reliable non-toxic chemical and organic sources. The product can be used in the production of all commercial agricultural, horticultural and feed crops.

TM Agricultural

We have spent years at Best Environmental Technologies developing growing solutions for commercial, agriculture and horticulture sectors.

The products we have for soil rejuvenation are second to none, and are developed in our own laboratories with leading edge biotechnology. Best Farming Systems and products are used worldwide and we are expanding into new countries and territories at a very rapid pace.

Best understands that the concept of using biology to assist growers is a very new one, and education, understanding and results are paramount. Our products are formulated to restore soil balance and health. The goal at Best is to help solve the main problem that most producers encounter - the condition of their soil. The truth is that poor soil condition leads to many of the problems and expenses we see in agriculture today. Compacted hard soils with poor water absorption, low biological activity and low oxygen promote disease, pests and high costs. Input costs that are associated with poor soil conditions, nutrient lockup, high fertilizer rates with low efficiencies and leaching also add to the challenge.

TM Agricultural promotes loose aerated soil with optimum oxygen levels, excellent water absorption and holding capacities. Inputs that are used are much more efficient when the soil is healthy. Our goals here at Best are to help producers grow healthy produce that is of a high quality with reduced input and much less of a financial risk.

pH Plus

pH Plus is used to help increase porosity in the soil. pH Plus also helps to mobilize any heavy metals within the soil. This plays an important part in allowing the soil to naturally adjust its pH level by way of moving the salts.

Through testing, this product has been shown to greatly increase the efficacy of TM Agricultural by creating a stable pH level in the soil. The growth of a healthy microbial environment becomes much easier to sustain, especially over the winter months. In the Agricultural market, pH in soil and on plants has traditionally been overlooked - with pH at a consistent and stable level, plants can more readily uptake available nutrients.
