Assess the benefit of adding Serenade product to the soil by different methods

Serenade is a liquid bacteria formulation which has been trialled and tested by Bayer. Results are showing improved root growth and increased plant stimulation. Application of this product may lead to higher plant growth rates and utilisation of nitrogen earlier in the growing season. 

Application methods include:

  • Apply sub-surface with a Confidor applicator
  • Incorporate with dunder and apply on the surface

Different application methods could be more suited to different growers depending on circumstances and resources, which in turn can also influence the effectiveness of the product.
