Kansas Beef Company Improves BRIX Levels of Forage Grass and Healthier Cows

SumaGrow Improves BRIX Levels pic 1.jpg

Dr. Allen Williams conducted a yearlong survey test with the TallGrass Beef Company, a Kansas based beef company that markets grass fed and grass finished beef to restaurants and high end supermarkets. Dr. Williams found that with the application of Bio Soil’s SumaGrow, the BRIX level of the forage grass rose from an average of “4” to an average of “14”, a significant increase.

Another benefit to this higher BRIX level was healthier cows. TallGrass saw their veterinary bills drop by $40,000 after they started using the Bio Soil SumaGrow product, Dr.Allen said. “Cattle weight went up, the cows were healthier and the cows with calves were lactating at a higher rate. Also, the calve were larger and healthier.”

SumaGrow Increased Mean Height by 35.5% in Hawaii

SumaGrow Increased Mean Height by 35.5% pic 1

The following results are from a study which was conducted by Dave Ringuette, a Professor at University Hawaii Windward Community College. He studied the effects of a SumaGrow (SG) product on Cacao. The only difference in the plant treatment was the SG product.

 

SumaGrow Water
Start Mean height: 5.9 inches

SD 0.2

Mean height: 6.5 inches

SD 0.5

End Mean height: 12.6 inches

SD: 4.3

Mean height: 9.3

SD: 2.3

The SumaGrow treated plants had a mean height of 12.6, while the control plants had a mean height of 9.3 inches, so SumaGrow increased the mean height by 35.5%

Professor Ringuette noted the water only plants had approximately 15% more mealy bug and beetle damage.

Organic Cabbage Study From Rutgers University – 23% Head Increase and 14% Brix Increase

Here are the results from a study done at Rutgers University by Professor Joseph R. Heckman, on growing cabbage. At Hort – 3 Veg Research Farm, the SumaGrow heads were 23% larger. The average of the brix content overall favored the SumaGrow heads by an average of 14%.

SumaGrow Increased Pumpkin Economic Benefit by $3,484 per Acre

SumaGrow demonstrated an increase in the number of saleable pumpkins produced as compared to the untreated control. The data presented in this study suggests that the larger number of saleable pumpkins from the SumaGrow treatment, as compared to the untreated check, was due more to an improvement in pumpkin quality than an increase in total pumpkins produced.

The quality factors affected were size, disease resistance, and maturity. SumaGrow appeared to specifically influence pumpkin maturity and also had fewer diseased pumpkins than the untreated check. SumaGrow treated plants had larger, darker green leaves than the untreated check.

The plant growth and yield response to the product was significant and should be of economic benefit to a grower.

Plant Growth: The plants in SumaGrow plots were similar in appearance to those of the untreated check until just prior to the start to the start of blossom formation. At that time it was observed that the leaves of the SumaGrow treated plants were becoming larger and darker green than the untreated check plants. By mid-way through fruity set, plants in the SumaGrow plots had larger and darker green leaves than the plants in the untreated check plots. The larger dark green leaves became very noticeable on the SumaGrow plants because they formed a very dense leaf canopy.

Fruit yield, quality, and disease: The saleable yield data indicates that the SumaGrow treatment produced more saleable pumpkins than the untreated check. There was also an effect on pumpkin size. There was an increase in the number of pumpkins in the 10-39 pound range as compared to the untreated check.

The number of green pumpkins is given in Table 2. SumaGrow treated plots produced fewer green pumpkins than the untreated control. The effect was most noticeable on pumpkins in the 10 to 39 pound range.

Table 3 shows the effect of SumaGrow on the disease of the pumpkin fruit. Disease is a significant economic factor. It reduces the number of saleable pumpkins and it affects shipping quality. Many of the pumpkins are shipped great distances. It is not uncommon for pumpkins to appear to be of sound quality upon shipment but arrive at their destination in un-saleable condition due to disease. SumaGrow treated plants had fewer total diseased pumpkins than the untreated control.

Table 4 shows the total number of pumpkins produced by each treatment. The data shows that the total number of pumpkins produced by the untreated control was slightly greater than the total number produced by the SumaGrow treatment. However, the untreated control treatment produced fewer saleable pumpkins. Total number of pumpkins produced is not an accurate measure of saleable pumpkins. In this particular study, the number of saleable pumpkins appears to influenced more by maturity and disease than total pumpkins produced.

The data suggests that the larger number of saleable pumpkins from the SumaGrow treatment was due more to an improvement in pumpkin quality than an increase in pumpkin numbers. The two primary quality factors were disease and immature pumpkins. SumaGrow resulted in fewer immature pumpkins than the untreated check and also exhibited some disease suppression as compared to the untreated check.

The SumaGrow treatment produced significantly more pounds of pumpkins than the untreated check. Table 6 shows the calculated value per acre of the pumpkins produced using the various treatments. At 30 cents per pound, the total SumaGrow value was $13,612, while the untreated crop’s value was $10,127, which is a $3,484 increase for SumaGrow!

Evaluation of SumaGrow on Pumpkins Yield and Growth

Record Onion Harvest Smashes Average Yields with an increase of 89.45%

Onion harvest smashes yield record with 3,959% ROI using ExploGrow™ polymicrobial bio-fertilizerscreenshot_2019-07-17-onion-harvest-smashes-yield-record-with-3959-roi-using-explogrowe284a2-polymicrobial-bio-fertilizer-yo....png

*The follow text has been transcribed from a video interview with a South African farmer.*

“We used SumaGrow (referred to as ExploGrow) on our December* planting of onions. We normally harvest an average of 55 tons per hectare on our December planting. The final tonnage added up to 104.2 tons per hectare. This was an 89.45% increase, which equals an increase of 49.2 tons per hectare. The only change made to our normal onion program was that we added SumaGrow together with the recommended food products for SumaGrow. We are very excited about the road ahead. We immediately applied SumaGrow to all our potato crops. Now we are also very excited to see what SumaGrow will achieve with our potatoes.”

The estimated return on investment for this onion harvest is 3,959%. This translates to an estimated financial gain of $68,953.84 US dollars.

67.7% Increased Root Mass in Onion Crop

When a farmer ran out of Root-knot nematode poison on the SumaGrow treated area, they decided not to apply the poison on the remaining SumaGrow treated areas. Instead the farmer decided to put his trust in the plants’ own abilities and defenses when growing in an environment with the right combination of diverse and beneficial microbial species.67.7% Increased Root Mass in Onion Crop pic 1

As expected, the (C) SumaGrow treated onions developed roots almost double in size, with a +67.7% increased root mass.

A further observation is that the C onions (SumaGrow treated with NO Root-knot nematode poison) have bigger root systems than the D onions (SumaGrow treated WITH Root-knot nematode poison), a 42.3% increased root mass versus the SumaGrow treated onions (D) that did receive the nematode poison as well.

32.56% Increased Sugarcane Yield using SumaGrow

            “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.

32.56% Increased Sugarcane Yield using SumaGrow pic 1

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%

32.56% Increased Sugarcane Yield using SumaGrow pic 4

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

“ExploGrow™ represents more than increased yield, crop quality and rejuvenated soil. True sustainable agriculture requires real and safe solutions enabling farmers to cut down on chemical fertilizers, poisons, and using less water. We must, before it is too late, give serious attention to the health and sustainability of our soils. We must now embrace more responsible new farming methods.”- Mnr Dreyer Senekal, Senekal Boerdery

Organic Sunflower Sprouts

Farmers’ Markets have become very popular in recent years for getting organic farmers to bring their products to local open-air markets. One of our colleagues met an organic sprouts farmer, who was given several gallons of 1% URB Water on November 29th. To the right is a picture he sent with this accompanying email:

organic-sunflower-sprouts-pic-1.png“So far I soaked the treated sea water in the organic compost since last Sunday. I am also doing that for the vegan fertilizer. I will begin experiment this Saturday. I also soaked the broccoli and sunflower seeds overnight in the treated sea water and planted them in compost. Right now, those roots look good, but the sprouts are not ready to harvest yet. One question is if it is a success, how much it is for a bottle of treated sea water?

Growing the Sunflower Sprouts:

  • The seeds are soaked in water for 24 to 48 hours.
  • They are then washed and put into a clean bowl.
  • This is repeated for 1 to 2 days.
  • They are then placed in a growing tray with soil, covered and drop watered through the covering.
  • There are drainage holes in the bottom of the tray.
  • Remove the cover when the sprouts are above the soil, which normally happens in one or two days.
  • Water the tray once or twice a day until the pods drop off the new green leaves.
  • The seeds are ready to harvest in 7 to 10 days.

What is URB Water?

It is difficult to provide a definition since critics try to debunk the science with our words when they are unable to debunk the results. But here are two definitions to try and give you a clear idea.

Definition #1: “Pro-Con science (URB Water) has been designed towards a molecular structure to stabilize and balance electron deficient hydrogen bonded liquids such as water, alcohols, amines, and DNA. It is a high basic, electron rich, noncorrosive, hydrogen soluble, electromagnetic, liquid crystal design.”

Definition #2: “Pro-Con science (URB Water) is a highly reduced water and/or alcohol preventing salt creation in an acid base reaction. The basis of the science is a high base, non-caustic, electrochemical solution that can create controlled, abnormal, chemical directions without producing large amounts of byproducts or newly formed environmental harmful constituents as would lime or sodium hydroxide.”

Why the Plants in Hemet Lived and Did not Die:

Below you will see the before and after electron microscope photos of seawater and URB Water. The photos demonstrate the uniqueness and transformation properties of URB Water.

The photos prove that URB Water changes the structure of seawater. Seawater is cubic in form; URB Water is not cubic and therefore is not a salt crystal. However, URB Water still contains sodium chloride, but it is now in mineral form, as opposed to crystal form. URB Water has changed seawater from a salt crystal to a salt mineral.

  Sea Water                                         URB Water

This is why our URB Water did not kill the plants in Hemet. Plants absorb water minerals by osmosis, turning fresh water into saline solution for the plant’s roots. If we had dumped seawater with its salt crystalline forms, the plants would have tried to make the seawater more saline, eventually killing the plant.

When we dropped the URB Water on the plants, they immediately began to absorb it, converting it into a saline solution for its root system. The fact that they lived and even showed some growth can now be understood; URB Water does not have a salt crystal form.

We hope that we have not over-simplified this explanation too much. Bottom line, we have demonstrated visually what we have been saying for a long time: URB Water changes the structure of what it is treating.

URB Water – First Trial

On Sunday, November 10th, a 55 gallon drum was filled with seawater from a boat launch in Long Beach, California. On Monday, 200mL of URB Water (Pro-con as it is referred to in report) was added to a 5 gallon pail filled with seawater. The procedure was repeated two more times. The three 5 gallon pails were taken to Joyful Farms in Hemet, California.

URB Water – First Trial pic 1On Tuesday, November 12th, more than 100 plants were doused with 1% URB Water seawater solutions. The plants (seen to the right) were thoroughly knocked down with the force and amount of seawater (5 gallons per row) that was administered to the plants in less than one minute. The goal of the watering was to see if the plants could survive the 1% URB Water “death bath”.

No additional water or nutrients were given to the plants. On November 25th it rained during the day and partly into the night.

This picture was taken on December 5th, which was 23 days after the 1% URB Water seawater treatment and. The plants, a member of the Bok Choy family, tasted good and no one had any negative side effects from the food.

URB Water – First Trial pic 2Bok Choy plants were watered with 1% URB Water seawater treatment and lived. The plants were harvested with the remaining untreated crops on December 6th, which are at the top of the picture to the left. Untreated seawater would have killed all the plants within 4 to 6 hours according to every agronomist that was consulted.

Potato Farmer with Record 88 tons per hectare- Limpopo, South Africa

Potato Farmer with Record 88 tons per hectare- Limpopo, South Africa pic 1After seeing the positive effects on other crops, the farmer added SumaGrow (referred to as ExploGrow in report) to his normal fertilizer program, treating all his potatoes. He left no control areas, comparing only year to year results. SumaGrow was applied by pivot irrigation between 8 and 10 liters per hectare. 88 tons per hectare were achieved on one of the 18 potato lands.

Remarks from the farmer:

  • “Very happy with the yield, quality and sizing that was much better than normal year-on-year averages”
  • “The potato plants we’re growing so well (healthy and strong) that they looked like they had a few more weeks left in them to produce even more tons per ha, nevertheless we harvested on the scheduled dates”
  • “ExploGrow has become an integral part of our fertilizer program, going forwards, we will be reducing chemical fertilizers and trialing slightly longer growing periods”

The farmer invited us to bring any serious potato farmer to “come and see for themselves”.

The photos were taken on a different potato farm in the Limpopo Province. The potato plants in these photos were also treated with SumaGrow with a special blend of beneficial soil microbes. The owner of this potato farm was also particularly impressed by the large sizing that resulted in a better overall yield.
