Technology for using microfertilizers "MicroStim" and "MicroSil" in flax crops









Linked profile in other language
Margarita Maslinskaia
The Flax Institute offers consumers the technology of using "MicroStim" and "MicroSil" microfertilizers to increase disease resistance, yield and quality in flax crops under a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a license agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a technical cooperation agreement.
Complex compositions of microfertilizers have been developed:
- "MicroStim" - for seed inlay (5.0 l/t) and foliar treatment of flax plants in the herringbone phase (1-2 l/ha), including microelements in chelated form and the plant growth regulator Hydrohumin;
- "MicroSil" - for inlaying flax seeds ("MicroSil-Copper-Zinc-Boron IS") - 5.0 l/ha; for foliar feeding of flax crops (“MicroSil-Boron”, “MicroSil-Boron-Copper”, “MicroSil-Zinc-Boron”) - 1.0-2.0 l/ha.

The use of complex microfertilizers "MicroStim" and "MicroSil" for treating seeds and plants reduces the incidence of flax diseases, including calcium chlorosis, increases the yield and quality of flax products, ensuring profitable production.
Advantages and Innovations
Inlaying flax seeds with the "MicroStim" preparation ensures an increase in seed yield by 6.9-8.3%, fiber by 11.3-16.0%, conditional net income of 76.3 USD/ha, production profitability of 57.2 %.

Foliar feeding of flax with microfertilizers "MicroSil-Boron", "MicroSil-Zinc-Boron" and "MicroSil-Boron-Copper" during the germination phase - "herringbone" helps to increase the yield of fiber flax: seeds - by 0.9-3.4, fiber - by 4.6-7.2 c/ha; oil flax yield: seeds - by 4.0-5.8 c/ha, oil content in seeds - by 1.4-2.8%; provides a conditional net income of 374.4-671.5 thousand rubles/ha, respectively.
Stage of development
Already on the market
Comments regarding stage of development
Technical specifications for microfertilizers “MicroStim” and “MicroSil” have been developed. The preparations are included in the catalog of pesticides and fertilizers approved for use in the territory of the Republic of Belarus. The technology for using microfertilizers in flax crops has been introduced in flax-growing farms of the Republic of Belarus since 2009.

Additional comments
The main priority areas of activity of the Institute of Flax of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus are:

Creation of new highly productive varieties of fiber flax of various ripeness groups and high-yielding, high-fat varieties of oilseed flax, having high technological and nutritional qualities of the oil.

Primary seed production of zoned and promising varieties of fiber flax and oil flax.

Development of environmentally friendly, resource-saving technologies for cultivating and harvesting new and promising varieties of fiber flax and oil flax in the conditions of the Republic of Belarus.

Development of agrotechnical methods for increasing the yield and quality of flax products and reducing the cost of production of flax products.

Monitoring the morphophysiological and phytosanitary state of fiber flax crops.

Improving techniques for managing processes occurring during aging of flax straw.

Introduction of scientific developments into agricultural production, advanced training of personnel in the flax growing industry.

International scientific and technical cooperation has been established with leading research organizations in the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Poland involved in the cultivation and processing of flax.
