Whether for harvesting the whole plant as silage or for its grain yield, corn is a demanding spring crop from sowing to harvest. The weaning stage, that is, the transition from nutrition on the seed to root development, is fundamental to achieving high, energy-rich results.

Whatever the earliness of the varieties used or the soil and climatic conditions specific to each region, good root development of maize cultivation is essential. It is during the development of the first roots that corn must benefit from all the mineral elements, as close as possible to its needs in time and space.


An essential element during this stage, the bioavailability of phosphorus must be maximized as close as possible to the roots. Several steps are part of the farming practices that the farmer must implement:

  • Fight against soil acidity, wich can limit the growth of the corn culture by blocking macro and micro-elements as well as decrease the biological activity of the soil, for example.
  • Fertilize as close as possible to the needs of the plant by locating microgranules
  • Promote the development of biological activity and certain strains capable of making the phosphorus naturally found in soils bioavailable

For a better production of maize cultivation

By increasing the real coefficient of absorption of nutrients, the fertilization ranges made from premixes with Calkorium and Calkonutrium make it possible to combat the risks linked to the weaning stage and to increase root development.
Thanks to these prebiotic premixes, microorganisms grow rapidly in the soil, in particular via optimal inoculation of the strains in the soil. The quantity of nutrients such as trace elements and phosphorus present naturally in the soil increases thanks to their enzymatic activity.

Thus, the biological activity is stimulated and the pH of the soil is rebalanced, allowing the corn crop to grow optimally. The energy content of the grains increases with the quantitative yield of the crop.
