“I tried Generate as a starter alternative on 80 acres. My standard program is 4 gallons of 10-34-0 in 5 gallons of water to dilute the salt load. This year, I did a replicated trial comparing the 9 gallon/acre starter package (4 gallons 10-34-0, 1 gallon liquid carbon and 4 gallons water) versus the 3 gallons Generate package (Generate + 1 gallon of liquid carbon and water).
I had no issue with emergence, and I saved almost $20/acre. The yield was equal on both treatments, so I “gained” 2.5 bu in savings and didn’t give up any yield. This field has been corn-on-corn for 29 years and it averaged 294 bu/acre!”

STRONG EMERGENCE MATTERS
The University of Minnesota found that inconsistent emergence can have a considerable negative impact on crop yield – up to 9% or an 18-bushel loss on a 200-bushel crop. During the typical 4-day to 4-week period it takes for plants to emerge, slower germination may leave crops more vulnerable to disease and insects.
HOW TO IMPROVE EMERGENCE
Generate + Procure gets plants started faster in two powerful ways:
Stimulates soil microbes to release more tied-up nutrients to germinating seeds.
Enables new plants to capture more energy from the sun for a stronger foundation of growth.
TARGETS THE SOIL
Generate targets soil microbes to unlock enzymes that release tied-up nutrients to germinating seeds.
TARGETS THE PLANT
Procure helps emerged plants unlock enzymes required to make photosynthesis more efficient, jumpstarting plant growth.

Generate + Procure is a versatile liquid product that can be applied in-furrow, side-dress or foliar. Simply combine 1 quart per acre at its recommended rate or dilute with 2-7 gallons of water. See label for full directions.
SUCCESS IN THE FIELD
A strong start can give your field an advantage the entire growing season. In field trials with Generate + Procure, treated plants consistently show accelerated emergence leading to greater yield bumps at harvest. On average, growers using Generate + Procure experience +8.4 bu/acre yield increase in corn and +2.7 bu/acre in soybeans.
Despite the cold and wet soil conditions in spring of 2019, Generate + Procure improved crop performance in a research trial conducted in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. Results showed a significant increase in plant emergence leading to greater yields while decreasing grain moisture which meant lower drying costs compared to control treatments – even in a wet year with a shortened growing season.
Generate + Procure at 1 pint + 1 pint increased the yield by 11.1 bu/acre.
Generate + Procure treated corn was on average 3.5 lbs./bu heavier and 2.5% drier.
This resulted in an economic return of $74.65 and takes into consideration the yield, drying cost and product cost.
* Total Return ($/ac) is based on final yield, drying cost and average product cost.
** Drying costs estimated by the Iowa State University Extension Calculator for Cost of Drying Corn.
In a field trial in east central Nebraska, Generate + Procure was used in replicated strip trials. Results showed a 10% increase in stand counts leading to a 7-bushel advantage in treated plants. Plants were also greener and better able to tolerate stress on dryland corn.
