Vietnam Government/Farmer Co-op Perform Trial on Broccoli: 37.5% Yield Increase While Reducing Fertilizer 50%

With the advice and assistance of the National Fertilizer Testing Center and the Dat Viet Xanh Farmers’ Association, in collaboration with Gia Lam District, fertilizer trials were performed with EarthCare with SumaGrow Inside broccoli at Yen Vien Commune, Gia Lam District, Hanoi.

The plant height increased, fewer pests were noticed, soil organic matter increased 67.5%, and, of course, the yield increased 37.5% while the chemical fertilizer was reduced by 50%, which resulted in a net increase in profit of over $431/hectare (May 8, 2018 exchange rate).

The use of  EarthCare with SumaGrow inside reduced the urea nitrate residue in the broccoli.  This is an important criteria for evaluating the product as safe or not before being used.

This trial was supervised by Dr. Ngo Thi Dao, Former Head, Department of Soils University of Pedagogy in Hanoi, who is also the author of two books on agriculture.

The report also contains detailed soil analysis reports.

Mangoes in Ecuador Achieve Stellar Yield Increase of 42.7% to 51.5%

From the analysis carried out and the results obtained, it can be concluded that:  The best production result was seen in the T2 [SumaGrow plus a 50% reduction in fertilizer], which shows a double saving.  First, by increasing production by 51.5% and second by decreasing the use of chemical fertilizer by 50% • T3 (100% Genesis with SumaGrow) versus T1 (100% Chemical) shows an increase in production of 42.7% clearly showing the benefit of applying only (Genesis with SumaGrow) against traditional chemical fertilization.

T3 (100% Genesis with SumaGrow, no fertilizer) versus T1 (100% Chemical) shows an increase in production of 42.7% clearly showing the benefit of applying only (Genesis with SumaGrow) against traditional chemical fertilization.

Mink Pond Club Soil Improvement

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.”

Happy growing,

Tim Foglio

A solid trial resulting in a 14.3% yield increase while reducing the grower standard amount of fertilizer by 50%.  The trial report also notes a huge increase in the soil organic matter which is the true test of soil health.
