This trial was conducted on one year old “lotus variety” roses and the SumaGreen (SumaGrow) treated plants grew longer plant flowering stems and had bigger buds — 11.5% larger in 90 days.
Anecdotally, it was noted that there was “more color” and the color was “bolder.”
The difference was not as large on the three year “velvet” rose bushes, likely because the trial only lasted 90 days.

“I used SumaGroulx [SumaGrow] in my garden, with my tomatoes, sweet corn and peppers. With SumaGroulx [SumaGrow], my tomatoes went 50% better yield increase from the previous year!”
“This past year, I used SumaGroulx [SumaGrow] on my garden. I had the largest and healthiest carrots and onions than I had ever had before. The garden itself was stronger and healthier, because of SumaGroulx [SumaGrow].”
“I put a little SumaGroulx [SumaGrow] on my cabbage plants, highly diluted, and within two days they just shot right up! I could not believe the growth rate! I am very impressed to say the least!”

“My tomatoes – they are so big, it’s unreal! I couldn’t control them, they grew above the wire cages and my additional added on stakes. I have pictures to prove it.”
Arthur Herrin, resident of Petal, Mississippi, heard about Bio Soil from a news story which aired on WDAM (a local NBC affiliate). When he planted his garden, he decided to treat it with only [SumaGrow]. This is what he had to say:
“After seeing a news article on TV about your product, I decided to give it a try. I have a raised bed vegetable garden in the back yard of my home. I’ve gardened this way for the last several years. It has always been a successful way to garden, but I have never had such dramatic results as I have seen since using [SumaGrow] only one time!
The plants are greener, healthier, and stronger than they have ever been. They are larger, and each plant is loaded with fruit.
I was very skeptical about the product in the beginning, but I believe it will be a very beneficial tool in gardening vegetables and flowers. All my plants have grown so green and so sturdy that I cannot wait to see the harvest. [SumaGrow] has made a believer out of me.
I have not used any commercial fertilizer at all and still have these great results using your completely organic product.”

Complete Guide to Growing Tomatoes: A Complete Step-by-Step Guide Including Heirloom Tomatoes
The following is an excerpt from Cherie Everhart’s book the Complete Guide to Growing Tomatoes: A Com plete Step-by-Step Guide Including Heirloom Tomatoes:
Another approach for feeding the soil and mitigating disease risk in an organic fashion has been developed at Michigan State University and is being marketed by the company Bio Soil Enhancers. This is basically a formulation of specially selected microbes that are added to the soil. These microbes have several important functions. Most importantly, they are designed to fix nitrogen from the air into a form the plants can take up as nutrients. Secondly, these microbes compete with pathogenic microbes in the soil and reduce the likelihood of plant disease. Finally, some of the microbes act to produce metabolites that simulate root and plant growth. These microbes essentially allow nutrients in the air and soil to become bio available for plant use without the need for additional petrochemical based fertilizers. According to Lou Elwell, who is the President of Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc., “This approach is applicable to a variety of grain and vegetable crops as well as lawns. It offers an amazing opportunity to increase world food supplies. It also promises an important reduction in synthetic fertilizer use.”
The Bio Soil team has a special, organic formulation specifically designed for tomatoes. The results using the product on tomatoes are especially impressive. “In a greenhouse setting, the use of the Bio Soil microbes increases the yield of tomato plants by 400 percent over conventional fertilizers alone.” says Lou. “The average size of the tomatoes increased by 88 percent using the Bio Soil microbes.” In addition, the tomatoes had a faster germination rate and flowered more quickly when using the Bio Soil microbes.
The Bio Soil formulation also contains humates and plant micro nutrients. Humates are the product of organic matter degradation and provide a food supply for the microbes. According to Lou, “The use of Bio Soil microbes will cost less than conventional synthetic fertilizers. Also, we are currently in the process of applying for organic certification for our formulations.”
