The strips treated with Soil Activator™ averaged 10% higher yield than the untreated areas.
Bunch size, grade and weight were all improved with the use of Soil Activator™. This test confirmed optimal dosage for banana plantation at 25 kg per hectare.
Asparagus crops accumulate nutrient reserves during their vegetative growth phase to support the production of marketable asparagus spears. The grower observed improved growth during the season.
Leaf tissue analysis performed showed that any of the leaf nutrient levels were higher with the use of Soil Activator™.
Treatments included Soil Activator™ alone and in combination with a commercially available soil conditioner to aid in penetrating the mulch layer, as well as an untreated control and conditioner alone treatment.
This farm typically harvests cocoa twice per year. The growth and production of cocoa trees treated with Soil Activator™ was superior in several ways; general plant growth was improved, with bigger, greener, and “cleaner” leaves.
Even though application occurred later than recommended, Soil Activator™ generated a number of benefits and improved root development in the treated vines.
With Soil Activator™ , average fruit weight was 25% higher and generated 11% higher net farm revenue.
In this trial, all three doses of Soil Activator™ promoted productivity and resulted in yield increases between 10 – 32%.
By the end of the first harvest season, treated plants had yielded 86 tonnes per hectare; in the region, new plantings of passion fruit yield 50 tonnes per hectare on average.
Plants treated with Soil Activator™ produced 44% more tillers compared to the untreated plants.
Visual observations found more vigorous plants, and increased flower stem strength
Visual observations indicated that crop development was already improved 7 days after treatment.
Tomatoes treated with Soil Activator™ produced larger tomatoes which also resulted in higher yields.
The number of harvests in the treated field were higher than typical and led to larger than average overall yield.
