Bombardier in Dry Land and Irrigated Land Sunflower

Over 250 trials on 120 different crops from over 90 countries.


Dry Land and Irrigated Land Sunflower

Burgos, Spain

BOMBARDIER application increased yield in different sunflower varieties, in both dry land and irrigated land, in the 6 trials performed. In several trials the oil yield also increased. Therefore, the production of oil has been greater in the variants treated with BOMBARDIER, allowing to obtain the most stable harvests with lower productivity oscillations.
