Better Produce

I just wanted to pass this email on that I got from a customer in North Dakota that was working with the SumaGreen Product this year. He used it on sweet corn and a verity of vegetables.  I just  copied the email as I got it so everyone can see that the product inspired this email with having a happy customer. He shared info with me all through the growing season and he found that not only did he have better tomato’s in size but they were tasting better as well. He also had great results with his sweet corn, Great yield, and Great flavor. This is a photo of one of the tomato’s. This was done using organic practices, the customer is working to get organic certification.

(Kevin, I finally found something on the tomatoes that I grew they are a Polish Paste tomato they said their average weight at 5-8 ounces and this size I had tomatoes using SumaGreen and Sustane at 7 to 10 ounce tomato I did have several tomatoes go 11-12 ounces. Thought you should know I am going to talk to one of the farmers west of Garrison and tell him my results. Thank You  for a great product and have a great day. Arland)

Reduce Water Runoff to Improve River Health

soil_cutaway

I would like to talk about the state of the river and how healthy soil plays a big roll in the health of rivers and lakes. A “Green Ideas and Ham” meeting put on by Environment Minnesota I attended this summer had Lark Weller from the National Park Service and Trevor Russell from Friends of the Mississippi River, that talked about the State of the River Report that the National Park Service and Friends of the Mississippi River put together talking about how the river is doing. I have listed the website below so you can read the report.

The report shows that we have been working on helping the rivers by reducing what runs off into them. In some ways the river is looking better, but we still have a long way to go. The report from the MN EPA shows that a lot of the rivers and lake on the southern part of the state have high levels of nitrates in them. With all of the changes that we have made to the landscape and the way we farm today it puts extra demand onto the rivers. We don’t have as much wet land area to help hold the rain runoff so all that water goes right to the rivers and by doing so it pulls in the fertilizers we have been using as well as other pollutants right to the rivers. One thing we can do help make the soil healthy again so it can hold more water and we have less runoff. To do that we need to increase the microbial life in the soil, which will consequently increase the organic matter that will reduce the amount of water running off into the water ways.

The SumaGreen line of microbial soil enhancers are one of the best defenses against excessive water runoff. Tests have shown that SumaGreen significantly improves soil health, root structure, organic matter, water holding capacity, and reduces the need for other inputs so you can reduce input costs.

Better Lawns with SumaGreen Turf

Mitch Carlson, lawn care specialist and owner of Green Core Organics, has been using SumaGreen Turf to improve the lawns of his customers this year. He says the results have been amazing. One customer, who, according to the neighbors had the worst yard in the neighborhood, began using SumaGreen Turf instead of chemical fertilizers. This customer does not have an irrigation system, and he does minimal watering each year. His yard has been completely transformed and his neighbors now tell him he has one of the nicest lawns in the neighborhood! See the results here…
