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.

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%

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
