How will your corn crop be different this year? Will you treat your acres the same this year as every other year? If you could give your corn the same advantage as if it was planted a week earlier, would you do it? There are a million different products on the market, that claim to be the cure all, but are they?

in-furrow, plant growth regulator
6 year National Response to Ascend, Ascend In-Furrow Corn Trials.

Ascend was the first plant growth regulator that the EPA would register because it had yield enhancing data from local farmers like you to prove that it actually works. In 366 yield trials adding only Ascend to the in-furrow fertilizer program, growers yielded 5.9 bu/ac more.

How does it work?

Ascend by Winfield United, kick starts your plants.

Ascend contains an optimal ratio of 3 EPA registered plant growth regulators: cytokinin, gibberellic acid, and indolebutyric acid (IBA). All three of which are naturally occurring in the seed and vital to germination and early cell development. By boosting the rates of these hormones, it allows the germinating seed to have the key components for quicker and more uniform emergence.

  • Cytokinin is a natural plant growth regulator that promotes cell division and promote fibrous root growth
  • Gibberellic acids are naturally occurring plant growth regulators that stimulate cell division and elongation in leaves and stalks.
  • Indolebutyric acid (IBA) is a plant growth regulator that stimulates vigorous root formation and development, and increases cell elongation.

Simply put, roots grow deeper, stems grow longer, leaves spread wider and most importantly, profit potential grows higher.  By speeding up germination and early season growth, Ascend can help your corn tassel up to 7 days sooner. If you’re looking for a more bountiful yield potential to compensate for the low priced commodity market, Ascend can help you achieve that goal.
