“The unique microbial composition places ExploGrow™ in a league all of its own”. Dr Malherbe, BSc; BSc Hons.; MSc (Mikrobiologie); Pr.Sci.Nat. (Landbouwetenskap); PhD (Agronomie)
Four months after the first SumaGrow application (referred to as ExploGrow in report), the root system more than doubled.
The “more than doubling” of the root system enhances the plant’s ability to absorb nutrients, hence reducing chemical fertilizer requirements, reducing water needs by about 20% and makes the plant more resistant to extreme heat, cold/frost and typically increases the yield and the Brix dramatically.
After only four months, soil conditions already visibly improved compared with the control.
“This is due to the increased biological activity by the 17 microbes in ExploGrow (SumaGrow) and the consequent much larger roots systems” – Mark Young, BSc.
The average chlorophyll fluorescence in the SumaGrow treated plots came out at +46.1% increase, as compared with the average of the Control plots. The +46.1% increase in chlorophyll fluorescence correlates with the +32.56% increase yield. The chlorophyll fluorescence is an indicator of the improved leaf photosynthesis taking place in the plant, due to the enhanced activity of the beneficial microbes.
Sugar content (Brix) increased by +18.9%
At harvest the main SumaGrow area produced 114 tons/hectare which is in an increase of 28 tons/hectare (+32.56% increase)
Results after about a year:
- Increased leaf mass and photosynthesis
- Increased soil life: 80 times more bacteria, 50 times more fungi
