New website documents power of Lignition, a biostimulant we’ve tested for three years

For three seasons, Renewable Farming LLC has invested in hundreds of random-rep trials on our research acres for a new product, Ligniton. Now, the Canadian developer of Lignition is rolling out a new website and a marketing program with global reach. Here’s how you can tap into a very promising rate of return on this new, safe, unique product which enhances photosynthetic efficiency.

Oct. 19, 2017 — Our trials show that WakeUP enhances Lignition’s yield performance by increasing its absorption, internal mobility and metabolism in crops.  (That’s a prime reason we have a special interest in Lignition!) We now have an inventory of Lignition on hand for sale to our clients for the 2018 growing season.

The Canadian developer, Dave Sutherland, has more than 30 years’ experience with marketing a full range of crop protection and nutrient products to Canada’s major ag distributors. Decades ago, he and his wife Lena immigrated from Russia to Canada. Fluent in Russian, they have ties to key Russian ag researchers. They discovered a little-known, Russian-developed process for isolating biostimulant enzymes from crop lignin. For about 10 years, they’ve quietly researched how to make this biostimulant perform consistently when applied as a seed treatment or foliar. 

Dave and Lena have invested heavily in field and greenhouse trials for a decade, testing for the multiple variables which impact the finely balanced crop responses to biostimulants. We’ve learned a lot about what to do with Lignition — and what not to do. Word has spread among Canadian growers how Lignition can enhance crop yields. Dave and Lena’s company, Retrievall Ltd., has scrambled to supply farmers’ Lignition purchases for seed and foliar use on wheat, canola, corn, soybeans and other crops.


Yield data on Lignition used as seed treatment

Here’s just one example of Lignition’s consistent yield performance when used as a seed treatment for corn and soybeans. Data in these charts is from a professionally managed, random-rep series of field trials at a Canadian field test facility.

You’ll see other data and further background on Lignition by visiting their new website:

We’ve tested Lignition as a seed treatment, in-furrow application, and foliar. The data we’ve seen indicate that results are cumulative: The more times you trigger the biostimulant effect, the more sunshine is converted to sugars and other carbon compounds by photosynthesis. Here’s a link to a photo of our soybeans treated with in-furrow Lignition in 2016.
