Results

First results (5 months after application):

  • In the treated plot a general improvement has been observed during cultivation.
  • The plants contain more fruits
  • An increase of 45% in weight and amount of plants
  • 30% more blooming (new shoots)
  • A larger resistence against moulds and whiteflies.

The first harvest of tomatoes from the treated plot consisted of 2.350 g per plant versus 1.100 g per plant from the untreated plot.

The untreated plot was also harmed by birds and whiteflies and the tomatoes were less developed. The treated plants showed an increase in weight of 45% (average) and the tomatoes were not damaged. Furthermore there was still a development of new flowers in the plants.

Trial 4: Wheat and barley

Hongary, 2015 – 2018

Location: Hongary
Crop: wheat and barley
Total amount of plants / acres (ha): various plots
Time of application: before sowing
Duration trial: 3 years; every year the same application of FERTISOL.

Results

The tests were done at 3 tons/ha, 6 tons/ha and an additional test of 3 tons/ha with an extra addition of nitrogen (50 kg N/ha). The graphs show that the yields per hectare are higher compared to the plot where no organic fertilizers have been applied. This means a huge revenue increase, as shown in the right hand graph.

After three years the test fields have visibly had to soil improvement, better resistance to drought and disease, nutrition of soil life and nutrients have been continuously released for arable crops.
