INDEPENDENT FIELD TRIAL and TEST RESULTS on SEA-CROP for 2007

 

These tests were sponsored at four different test facilities by an
 entity independent of Ambrosia Technology.

 

 

  • Field Trial at Louisiana State University

    Corn: Two tests treated with 2 gallons per acre and 4 gallons per acre gave increased corn harvests of 58.15% and 94.49% respectively

  • Eugene, Oregon Tests

    Sweet Corn

    Purple Basil

    Orange Thyme

    Rosemary

    French Tarragon

    Strawberry

    Tomato

    Sweet corn was planted and treated in the furrow with Sea-Crop at the rate of 1.8 gallons per acre. Scotts Osmocote N-P-K fertilizer was used on both the untreated control and treated tests. After 115 days the plants were dug up, the roots washed and the entire plant desiccated so that dry matter weights could be compared. The percentage gain of the Sea-Crop treated plants as compared to the controls is listed below.

    Strawberry (June bearing) bare root starts were transplanted into one gallon pots. Scott's Osmocote N-P-K fertilizer was used on both the untreated control and the treated tests. On the sixth day after transplantation the treated plants received Sea-Crop at the rate of 3 gallons per acre. The treated plants produced fruit earlier as well as later in the season with significantly more fruit during the peak harvest season. Total increase in yield of fruit by weight 65.2%

    Cucumber

    Cucumber seeds were germinated, then transplanted into 4 inch pots and treated with Sea-Crop at the rate of 3 gallons per acre. A commercial N-P-K fertilizer was used on both the untreated control and the treated tests. After 4 weeks the plants were dug up, the roots washed and the entire plant desiccated so that dry matter weights could be compared.

  • INDEPENDENT FIELD TRIAL and TEST RESULTS on SEA-CROP for 2008

    These tests were sponsored at different test facilities by an entity independent of Ambrosia Technology. Field Trial at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge

     

    Sea-Crop was used as a root dip on plug transplants at the dilution rate of one part in fifty (2%). The treatment gave the following increases in marketable fruit:

     

    On Eggplants 66%

    On Tomatoes 30%

    On Peppers 71%

    On Strawberries   25%

     

    In another test involving 4,000 strawberry plants and testing the beneficial effects of four different products, Sea-Crop excelled and produced the best results.

     

    The above tests all took place in nematode infested soil.

     

  • Morocco University Test

    Eggplant

    Eggplant sets were planted in 5 liter pots and 8 replicates were then treated with a foliar spray of Sea-Crop that was diluted to a 1% concentration. There was no increase in fruit set but the fruit of the treated plants were 79.5% larger by weight giving a 79% increase in yield over the control.

  • Morocco University at Agidar Field Trial

    Sea-Crop was used as a soil drench on runner beans in the two leaf stage after emergence and as a foliar spray three and six weeks after the soil drench. Total Sea-Crop usage was three gallons per acre and the increase in marketable fruit was 86%.

  • Zucchini Commercial Greenhouse Trial in Morocco (2007-2008)

    Sea-Crop was evaluated on 120 plants grown hydroponically in coco-peat using 5 different combinations of drench and foliar applications and compared with a control. The best performance was achieved when Sea-Crop was applied twice as a 1% foliar application, while the second best was achieved when Sea-Crop was applied twice as a 0.30% drench. One foliar application of Sea-Crop at 1% achieved better results than one drench at 0.30% concentration. It was found that Sea-Crop improves leaf size, number of fruits and total yield, while causing an early flowering and an early production compared to the control.

  • Green Bean Commercial Greenhouse Trial in Morocco (2007-2008)

    Sea-Crop was evaluated on 500 plants grown hydroponically in coco-peat using 5 different combinations of drench and foliar applications and compared with a control. The best performance was achieved when Sea-Crop was applied as a 0.1% drench and followed in 3 weeks by a 0.1% foliar application. It was found that Sea-Crop improves plant growth, leaf size, root volume and root weight while accelerating early production and improving overall yield.

  • County Line Farm 2012 Winter Trials by Collé Agriculture

    In the early part of 2012, Collé Agriculture performed testing at a commercial organic produce farm in Southern California. The testing documented the performance of Sea-Crop® under organic growing conditions.

    One aim was to determine if yields increased when the only variable was the addition of Sea-Crop®. Another goal was to determine if produce grown under commercial conditions and treated with Sea-Crop® contained a greater nutritional value.

    The crops chosen for testing were baby beets, baby carrots, cauliflower, fennel, spinach and baby Swiss chard. These crops were grown in fields fertilized with hydrolyzed fish powder, chicken manure, and with both macro and micro mineral soil amendments.

    A portion of each crop received treatment with Sea-Crop® in addition to the normal fertilization. In all, 3 applications were made, one soil drench and 2 foliar applications, totaling 4 gallons per acre. The larger, untreated, portion of each crop acted as the control.

     

     

    These are averages from the tests on six different species of vegetables:

     

     

    Yield increase                       +62.56%

    Dry matter increase               +12.72%

    Brix increase                        +35.12%

    Protein increase                    +19.73%

    Insect damage reduction         52.%
