Independent Research Trial Results
The most significant independent testing of our product comes from trials run by Dr Gordon Rogers, BAppSc (Hons), Dip Ed, PhD.
Dr Rogers is the Managing Director of Applied Horticultural Research (AHR) and an adjunct Professor of Horticultural Crop Physiology with the University of Sydney, Australia. He has a PhD in plant physiology, and 24 years’ experience in agronomy and crop physiology, with strong links to the farming and horticulture industry. Dr. Rogers specializes in soil health, vegetable agronomy, sustainable crop production systems, climate change physiology, and food production systems in developing countries.
Below, is a summary of the findings by Dr. Rogers for trials he conducted across a broad spectrum of crops using GROW:
Plant health is considerably improved with plants growing with greater vigor, remaining healthier and exhibiting enhanced capacity to resist pests and diseases without the need to apply protective substances.
Colour, taste and texture of produce grown with GROW are considerably enhanced, with improved brix (sweetness and flavor of produce), firmness of flesh and better texture.
Production levels (Yields) are significantly improved, typically by 33-50% and in some cases by as much as 100% (bananas).
Harvesting periods during which plants bear crops of harvestable quality are improved by as much as 25%
Shelf life of products grown with GROW is much improved with some crops showing an increase of up to 100% (broccoli) during normal storage.
