Increase of Total Barley Production

Through the Agrology Success Stories in Greece and abroad, Agrology proves that the superior quality and integrated innovative technologies of the Agrology Specialized Nutrition products make the difference in crops from the very first applications!

Our ultimate goal is to demonstrate that the Agrology Specialized Nutrition Programs constitute a profitable investment for producers, as the financial benefits more than cover the cost of the additional applications!

Agrology, in collaboration with Greek Research Organizations and Commercial Agricultural Supplies Stores, carried out a series of evidence-based applications in the cultivation of barley.  Field applications were carried out in different regions of Greece in 2021 and 2022, with the ultimate goal of increasing Barley Production with the application of Agrology’s XGel activ Sapphire.

Application Results

During the field applications, there were samplings from both sections -Control and Agrology-, and the final yield of both was specified during harvest. Agrology Program generated impressive results in the agronomic characteristics of the crop, to the benefit of the producer.

More specifically, the results were as follows:

Increase of Total Production: 63.3 kg/1,000 sq.m. or 15.4%

  • Agrology: 473.3 kg/1,000 sq. m.
  • Control: 410.0 kg/1,000 sq. m.
Picture 3. Yield (kg/1,000 sq.m.) With the implementation of the Agrology Program, there was an increase in the total yield by 11.2% (52.1 kg/1,000 sq.m.), compared to the Control.

Increase of Ear Weight by +18.2%

  • Agrology: 1.2 gr
  • Control: 1.0 gr
Picture 4. With the implementation of the Agrology Program, there was an increase of the average ear weight by 18.2 gr (+0.2%), compared to the Control.

Increase of Ear Length by +12.6%

  • Agrology: 6.97 cm
  • Control: 6.19 cm
Picture 5. With the implementation of the Agrology Program, there was an increase of the ear length by 12.6 gr (+0.78%), compared to the Control.

Increase of the Ear Length by 3.05 grains or +16.6%

  • Agrology: 21.43 cm
  • Control: 18.38 cm
