Biozest helps plants naturally resist stress or damage and deliver higher crop/pasture quality and yield. Biozest works by eliciting and sustaining plant defence and stress tolerance systems which drive production of a range of bioactive molecules (phenylpropanoids).
In dairy farming as well as sheep and beef farms the improved phenylpropanoid and soluble sugar content means that Biozest treated pasture is more easily converted to valuable meat and milk instead of polluting waste products such as urea and methane.
1. Potential $1000 per hectare potential increase in net operating profit
2. Reduction of urea loading and greenhouse emissions
3. Supports New Zealand's clean green image and the future of sustainable farming.
Field proven by farmers, for farmers
Ruminant animals are inefficient converters of pasture protein (nitrogen) to food. The feed conversion efficiency of dairy cows or conversion of feed protein nitrogen into milk or meat is, on average, only 25% (75% is wasted as urea).
Fermentation of pasture cellulose is slow. To efficiently convert pasture protein to milk or meat this energy release needs to be much faster. The imbalance in the energy supply system leads to waste of energy as methane.
A small lift in conversion of pasture protein nitrogen (from 25% to 27.5% or a 2.5% increase) can deliver a 10% increase in farm productivity.
Nitrous oxide (from Urea) has 298 times the global warming potential per unit weight than carbon dioxide. Methane has 25 times more impact per unit weight than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas.
Biologically derived nutrients can further increase pasture growth and productivity.
Plants, including pasture, have receptors on their surfaces. These receptors monitor for pest, disease or environmental (such as cold, salinity and light) stress. If the receptors sense stress they trigger the production of beneficial metabolites in plants and pasture.
The molecular compounds in Biozest can “trick” the receptors into reacting as though they are being attacked by pests and disease or stressed by environmental changes. The receptor reacts and induces the pasture to produce metabolites (phenylpropanoids) to ward off the perceived pest, disease or environmental stress.
The phenylpropanoids strengthen the pasture which enables pasture to reach its full productive potential including increasing soluble sugars (Brix). Biozest application therefore improves pasture productivity and palatability.
Phenylpropanoids in plants can protect proteins from degradation and improve the efficiency of conversion of plant protein to animal protein (meat and milk). Biozest improves dairy feed quality and increases feed efficiency resulting in increased dairy milk production and meat production without the use of feed supplements or feed additives or excessive use of fertilisers.
Fill sprayer tank with water. Shake Biozest container several times to reconstitute content. Add Biozest & rinse container into tank. Agitate thoroughly before spraying. Best sprayed after pesticide application. Do not mix with pesticides or organic nutrients.
Dairy pasture: Use 1 litre of Biozest (in 50 to 500 litres of water) per hectare. Initial Treatment 2 X sprays applications close together (3 to 5 days apart)
Follow on treatment - Spray 1 X 1 Litre per hectare after grazing (3 to 5 days after grazing)
Dry Stock farm and Turf : Spray 1 X 1 Litre per hectare in spring, summer, autumn and winter.
If treating stock finishing paddocks only - use 1 X 1 Litre per hectare after grazing (3 to 5 days after grazing).
