3.1 Total yield among the plots using different fertilizers:
Based on the above are averages taken from all of the trees in the same group, it appears that AZOMITE® was able to improve yield of peach at a higher rate than the other treatments, and significantly better than the control group.
3.2 Effect of AZOMITE® on Brix level in the Peach; Value taken from 10 peaches harvest at random from each group.
The Brix level of the AZOMITE® group was significantly higher than those of the others, with smoother pulp and stronger flavor. Observation by the farmers as well as investigators also noticed that the AZOMITE® group tends to blossom earlier than the other groups by 3~4 day. The leaves were of a dark green color as compared to the lighter green color of the other groups. The pest pressure seems lighter and there were more buds with successful ripening than the other groups.
4.1 AZOMITE® seems to be able to support earlier budding, increased the chlorophyll content of leaves, thus improving the photosynthetic efficiency of plants. There are reports that AZOMITE® may also help the absorption of other nutrients by plant when applied together. This experiment seems to confirm such an observation.
4.2 Application of AZOMITE® at 150KG per Mu (2,250kg/hec) was able to help improve overall yield of peaches by more than 25% under the conditions tested in this experiment.
