Pasture Grass Dry Matter 49% Yield Increase — SumaGrow vs. Liquid Broiler Litter and Urea Trial

The results of five months of testing at the LHOP Ranch in Independence, Kansas by the Tallgrass Beef Company showed SumaGrow achieving a greater Dry Matter (DM) yield increase in forage grass compared to two grower standard plots; one treated with an organic, liquid broiler litter (LBL) and the other with urea. The economic benefit of this DM yield increase was at least $390 per acre!

The DM yield increase using SumaGrow averaged 24% better than the average of the organic LBL and urea control paddocks. By the end of the 5th month, SumaGrow showed an average 49% yield increase compared to the LBL and urea treated paddocks.

In the Group 1 Treatment pastures, the DM yield from the SumaGrow treated pasture was 16% higher than the organic LBL treated pasture after one month, and 92% after two months, 71% after three months, 58% after four months, and 85% higher after five months. The DM yield from the SumaGrow treated pastures was 92% higher than the urea treated pastures after one months and 83%, 99%, 52% and 60% higher after months two, three, four and five.

Thus, the economic benefit per acre using SumaGrow ranged from $390 to $4104.
