*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.

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%

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 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.

Marketable Carrots (quality fit for market versus crop damage)

The untreated Verano block showed signs of being quite infested with root pathogens. The quality of this block was by far the worst of the tested areas. This was in spite of conventional preventative action. The quality and yield of the carrots in ExploGrow™ treated Verano block is a triumph under these circumstances.

On this particular farm, the soils have high concentrations of crop damaging Root-knot Nematodes.
