Soil analysis reports are invaluable tools for farmers and gardeners. They contain a wealth of information that is vital when determining what treatment program is necessary for the crops before and after planting. Tim Foglio, manager of the Mink Pond Club, a 2500 acre hunting and fishing game park in Pennsylvania, has shared his soil analysis reports for the last two years.
Tim used SumaGrow for approximately three years in conjunction with his regular fertilizer and experienced really good results. The good results made him curious as to how well SumaGrow would work if used without fertilizer. He decided to really test it and did without his usual fertilizer with continued good results.
The following charts show what crops were planted and what the Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC), pH, and Organic Matter (OM) was for last year, when available, and this year.
CEC is soil’s ability to hold and exchange nutrients and helps soils resist changes in pH in addition to retaining plant nutrients.
In a healthy balance of microbial proportions the pH of the soil will automatically stabilize at around 6.4 with SumaGrow, which is not only the “perfect soil pH” for organic/biological agriculture, but is also the ideal pH of sap in a healthy plant.
OM is the decomposed plant material in the soil that serves as a carbon source for the microbial community and nutrient bank for plant life above the ground.
The data from the Mink Pond Club provides excellent evidence that Bio Soil’s products act in a beneficial manner to help improve the soil quality over time.
Tim Foglio, President of the Mink Pond Club wrote this testimonial:
“I would like to thank you and your company for making a product that actually does what it’s supposed to do. There are a lot of products out there that claim “miracle results”; your product actually is a miracle!
Not only is it the easiest fertilizer to apply, but it is organic which makes it great for using on food plots near our lake and stream. I can honestly say that [SumaGrow] is worth the money. For the first time in eight years of growing food plots, our fields were lush and green, even in August! I am so impressed after last year’s results that I am only using [SumaGrow] on my plots this year and have cut traditional fertilizers out completely. I also look forward to using this because of the time-saving advantage of being able to mix my herbicides with it, which reduces compaction.
Once again, thank you for a great product.”
