Klorofill

A unique crop enhancer that improves chlorophyll production and maximises green leaf area.

Klorofill® contains pentanoate - an organic keto acid-based compound that is a unique biological precursor to chlorophyll synthesis. Pentanoate reverses the chlorophyll suppression that a plant may experience during rapid growth, for example, at flag leaf stage.

By increasing chlorophyll production, Klorofill maximises green leaf area and plant biomass, boosting crop growth and therefore yield.

Klorofill offers the following benefits:

  • Increased photosynthetic rate and chlorophyll production
  • Maximised green leaf area
  • Enhanced plant biomass
  • Improved nutrient efficiency

Boosting chlorophyll content

 

Compared to a competitor amino acid product, Klorofill at 1.0l/ha offers an additional 19% increase in Mg/cm2 of chlorophyll.

A trial from 2019 demonstrates a visible improvement in green leaf area.

This is shown in the following yield map of spring barley, captured from an independent trial. Plots 4 and 5 were treated with Klorofill at 1.0l/ha, with the same nitrogen regime as farm standard plot 7.

What this means for you

Replicated manufacturer trials conducted 2018/19 in Suffolk demonstrated that Klorofill can increase winter wheat yield by 0.76t/ha, compared to untreated.

Comparison of application timings in winter wheat

By selecting a targeted approach to Klorofill application, growers can maximise the impact of the product. A series of winter wheat trials by Envirofield in 2018 demonstrate the effectiveness of using Klorofill at T2 timing.
