Daymsa has carried out trials with Pleniflor and Naturfruit with the main objective of analysing the improvement of grain filling and production in soybean.
Soybean is an annual herbaceous plant, spring-summer, whose vegetative cycle ranges from three to seven months and reaches 40 to 100 cm wingspan. It is a plant sensitive to day length
As regards water requirements, during cultivation, soybean needs at least 300 mm of water, which can be in the form of irrigation when irrigated, or in the form of rain in those humid temperate zones where rainfall is sufficient.
Tests carried out
In order to analyse different vegetative and productive parameters and to increase the production of the soybeans crop, Daymsa has carried out trials on a farm in Salamanca on the Havane variety.
Pleniflor® is a flowering activator.
The phenological stages of the application in soybean (between R1 and R3) were as follows, as can be seen in the following table:
-R1: Beginning of flowering
-R3: Beginning of fruit set

Results after application of Pleniflor + Naturfruit
The results of the Havane variety after the application of Pleniflor and Naturfruit showed a better flowering and fruit set. After the application of these products, the following data were also analysed, as shown in the table below:
– H%: Percentage of humidity of the grain.
– % Grain protein.
– No. of pods per plant.
– No. of nodes per plant.
– No. of grains per plant.
– Height of the plant (cm).
– Potential yield Kg/ha.
The most important results in terms of percentage compared to the control treatment were as follows:
– Increase in protein content + 7%.
– Increase in the number of grains per pod + 25%.
– Increased yield potential + 25%.
|Variety||Treatment||H%||Protein||Corrected||Nº Vainas||Nº Nudos||NºGrains||Height (cm)||Potential Yield Kg/ha.|
|HAVANE without inocculation||Pleniflor||13,39||33,5||38,68||2,5||11||2,50||97||4297|
|HAVANE without innoculation||Control||13,58||31,3||36,22||5,50||11||2,00||85||3438|
Pleniflower, flowering and fruit set activator
Pleniflor is a flowering activator and fruit set improver for various crops, especially vegetable and flowering crops.
Pleniflor provides microelements and active substances that are essential in these processes, optimising nutrition at these critical moments. For its preparation, processes are used that maintain all the natural active and soluble components.
Pleniflor is indicated for:
– Stimulating the physiological processes of the plant related to flowering and fruit set, in order to obtain a greater quantity of viable fruit.
– For use mainly on cucurbit species such as melon, watermelon, cucumber, courgette and extensive crops such as rape, soybean and sunflower.
