Some observations from our trials of healthier plants, reduced pest and disease pressure and better produce.

Wine grape trial increased soil biological activity and brix at harvest

Date: 09/25/2019

This season’s vineyard trial was very successful, documented by data on soil biological activity, grape brix at harvest, and leaf extract analysis. Pacific Gro helped stop progression of red blotch, improved leaf color and vigor during heat stress, increased the soil biological activity and also increased the brix of grapes at harvest. Please see our trial summary report: https://www.pacificgro.com/docs/grape-trial-report-9-20-19.pdf

Corn Trial Summary

Date: 09/18/2019

Visiting our corn trial in Iowa last week, the corn was remarkably healthier, though Pacific Gro was applied at a minimal rate of just 2 gallons/acre in a conventional program. Less leaf disease (Gosser's wilt, leaf blight, grey leaf spot) and more nitrogen going into the plants. See full report here (link to Corn Trial Summary filed in PacificGro.com/Trials)

Improving soil health to increase ROI

Date: 09/13/2019

Regenerative agriculture has become a hot button topic throughout the world. It moves the soil health needle. … Regenerative agriculture practices facilitate the drawdown of excess CO2 through photosynthesis, and by increasing soil health, this also improves farmers’ profitability.

Soil Microbial Activity

Date: 08/30/2019

We’re learning that not only do we need intensive microbial communities in our soils, but we also need a broad diversity of microbes. Soil microbes are critical for vigorous plant growth … and it's not hard to make them work for you.
