Potato Study

Cklamen Variety​​

Tested 32 acre field, split into 16 acres plots.

Research conclusions where increased production volume, nutrient density and soil health. Along with control of pathogenic nematodes.

NATURAL SOIL AMENDMENT

Within a few weeks after the test field was planted, sample plants from both sections were taken. The results of the benefits of TruMicrobe Terra™ are evident at this early stage as illustrated in this picture. The roots of the plants from the treated section (left) are significantly more developed than the roots from the non-treated section.

A Third-Party Agronomist’s Description of What He Observed “To have that kind of healthy root structure, you must have an efficient carbon transfer system. What I mean is that your leaves suck the carbon out of the air and then they trans-locate it down to the roots. The roots exude it into the soil to feed the microbes. In return, the microbes mine nutrients from the soil to feed the plant in exchange for more carbon. In effect, you have a carbon-trading economy existing in the rhizosphere, in which your plants produce carbon and exchange it with nutrients mined from the soil by the microbes. Your plant is about 90% carbon by dry weight and your leaves are producing that. In order to have healthy production in the leaves, you need a broad spectrum of nutrients to enable processes like photosynthesis to occur. You have a carbon-trading economy under the ground that controls net primary production. If you have a highly efficient trading economy, in which your plants are producing a lot, they will receive a lot of nutrients in exchange, thereby growing bigger and able to produce more carbon. It is a very virtuous cycle and benefits the soil, the microbes, and the plant. In simple terms, the more robust that economy, the more robust the individual members; it is beneficial across the board. Additionally, because your plants are healthier, we see pathogen suppression, weed suppression, and pest resistance. They are simply less susceptible because they are healthier. “In conclusion, the numbers show that the treated section outperformed the non-treated section in all comparison areas. The data show that the TruMicrobe Terra™ increased the production volume, nutrient density, and soil health of the treated section, resulting in a more efficient carbon-trading system within the plant; which ultimately produced the higher numbers that we see. Similar results with many crops like onions, lettuce, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, kale, alfalfa, corn, wheat, and others can be expected.”
