Proof of Concept Testing On Saline Sodic Soil

Last summer we did some Proof of Concept testing at the New Mexico Consortium labs, determining if the Supramolecular Aromatic Chemistry coming from the Humic molecules in TerraPro provided a Mechanism of Action in fixing or controlling sodic saline conditions.  The tests went well and with positive results, however there were a few steps that got missed or left out that I'd like to get some measurements on, so Anna and I will do a repeat of a similar tests using our new lab in Los Lunas.   I'm hoping that Kevin Devine and Stephen Gomez, both highly qualified professional chemists can help me do some test and measurements once the grow out phase is completed.  I collected 20 gallons of soil from this spot near Socorro New Mexico where even the native salt grass was beyond its tolerance and could not grow.  You can see the salt grass growing close to the collection site but not on it.  I've taken the soil back to the lab, will send samples off to a lab for a pr…

As a small farmer in the Arizona desert, I have to commend you and your great recommendations on applicable growing products for my farm. If you will remember a year ago or so I was talking with you about my small citrus trees that I had just planted in the Winter. I really thought I had done a poor job of planting they were very thin and weak, you had mentioned to me about using your Terra Pro product on the base of my trees. I had purchased a tote from you earlier and saw amazing results in my vegetable gardens, but I had not considered using it on my trees.
