Corn on Clay Loam
Randomized Complete Block Design with 6 Replications
To simulate injection, AquiMax® was sprayed onto the soil surface and watered-in by linear gradient irrigation on 3 August and 13 August at a rate of 4 qt/ac. Corn was watered to replace either 100% or 70% of water lost through evapotranspiration (ET). AquiMax® resulted in a 14% increase in corn yield at 100% ET replacement, and the same yield with 30% less water using a patented soil moisture management technology.
14% increase in yield at full irrigation
AquiMax® increased corn yield by 14% at 100% ET replacement, and provided the same yield with 30% less water.

Corn on Sandy Loam
Completely Randomized Design with 4 Replications
AquiMax® was injected into surface drip irrigation two weeks prior two tasseling (V8-V10), at tasseling (VT), and two weeks after tasseling (R2-R4) at a rate of 2.5 qt/ac. These applications were made to avoid drought stress during important physiological stages of the crop’s development. Corn was watered to replace either 100% or 70% of water lost through evapotranspiration (ET). AquiMax® resulted in a 12 bu/ac yield increase at 100% ET replacement, and an 8 bu/ac yield increase with 30% less water.
Improved Corn Yield
AquiMax® increased Corn yield by 6% and increased yield with 30% less water.
