Effects of biologically active substances used in soybean seed treatment on oil, protein and fibre content of harvested seeds
In 4-year trials, soybean seeds were treated with the following biologically active substances: Lignohumate B (a mixture of humic acids and fulvic acids); Lexin (a mixture of humic acids and fulvic acids enriched with auxins); brassinosteroid (a synthetic analogue of natural epibrassinolide 24) and so-called ‘Complex seed treatment’ (a mixture of a saturated solution of sucrose, Lexin, the fungicide Maxim XL 035 FS and an adjuvant on the basis of pinolene). After harvesting soybean seeds from the individual treatments, they were analysed for oil, protein and fibre contents. The results show that the most effective method was the ‘Complex seed treatment’ which, compared to the untreated variant, significantly increased not only the yield but also the oil content of the seeds.
