The next generation of biostimulants.
The active agents in Bio Shot include same two main growth stimulators in Vitazyme: triacontanol and brassinosteroids, but in much higher concentration / content than the latter. With it’s 10X concentration and resulting lower application rates and transportation and storage costs, Bio Shot delivers the active agents to the spray tank without all the water. Easy to use, compatible with most agrochemicals and cultural practices, with no need for agitation prior and during application as Vitazyme does, Bio Shot eliminates the need for extra application costs, while boosting crop yield and quality. With it’s low per acre cost, Bio Shot is an economical input for the sustainable intensification of any agricultural system.
The Symbiotic Cycle
The microbial symbiosis that Bio Shot helps develop makes it a perfect companion product to the beneficial microbes present in Bio Seed
Corn in Tennessee
This replicated trial in Tennessee shows how Bio Shot can increase yields (bu/ac in figure) while reducing the need for applied fertilizer, using both a single and double applications of Bio Shot. Standard recommended fertilizer rates for the area were used.

Fresh Market Apples in New York
This trial on fresh fruit Jonagolds in Wayne County NY showed increases in yield (bu/ac in figure), brix, and return bloom, and a reduced percentage of bitter pit, with 5 applications of Bio Shot throughout the season.

Processing Tomatoes in California
This randomized, replicated trial shows the benefit of an increased Bio Shot application rate, from 40 ml (1.35 oz) to 80 ml (2.7 oz) per acre, in higher tomato yields, compared to the untreated control (tons/ac in figure).

How to Use & Compatibility
Bio Shot is applied at a 1.35 – 3 oz/acre rate (100 – 215 ml/ha) depending on crop biomass. Foliar applications are recommended, however in-furrow drenches have also shown efficacy. Most frequent applications range from 2 – 4 times per season depending on growing season length and crop value.
Bio Shot is compatible with most common agrichemicals. A jar test is recommended when mixing Bio Shot with new chemicals.
Designed With Growers in Mind
Bio Shot features low transportation costs, greater ease in handling, less waste to recycle, and smaller storage space. Coupled with unmatched performance, Bio Shot is truly a ‘Best in Class’ biostimulant.
- Transplanting trees & vegetables: Drench with a 0.1% solution.
- Cereal grains: Apply a foliar spray post emergence and at late tillering-early boot stage.
- Vegetables: Apply a foliar spray 3 weeks after planting and every 3-4 weeks until harvest.
- Tree fruits: Apply a foliar spray at the flower bud stage and every 3-4 weeks until harvest.
- Small fruits and berries: Apply a foliar spray in early spring when growth begins, and every 3-4 weeks until harvest. At least one post harvest application is recommended
