The Forage Extension Laboratory in Ona, Florida conducted a research study studying SEA-90 applied foliar at 5 lbs per acre vs conventional fertilizer on alfalfa in Wisconsin and Bahia Grass in Florida.
I realized that no one had ever calculated the percent increases regarding the various items listed. I am astonished by what I discovered.
Just to name a few:
Crude Protein increased by over 50%
Calcium increased by 106%
Magnesium increased by 35%,
Sulfur increased by 52%
Total Digestible Nutrients increased by over 21%
Relative Feed Value increased by over 29%.
This is why livestock are healthier when they eat forage fertilized with SEA-90 Trace Minerals.
We compared hay test results from pasture sprayed with SEA-90 vs broadcast and were totally amazed with the outcome. We’ve proven that pasture and hay sprayed with SEA-90 Foliar Fertilizer has better test results than conventionally fertilized (broadcast) pasture (52% increase in relative Feed Value) but we have never compared SEA-90 Foliar test results with test results from pasture and hay where SEA-90 Agricultural Mineral has been broadcast for several years.
Being believers in Regenerative Agriculture soil, crop and livestock remineralization we expected good results, but were amazed with what we found. In the 2019 Pasture Research results below one number jumps off the page –
155% increase in Relative Feed Value!
Keep in mind that our prior test results comparing SEA-90 Foliar Fertilizer vs Conventional broadcast fertilizer showed a 52% increase in RFV! This means that broadcasting SEA-90 Agriculture Mineral vs broadcasting Conventional Fertilizer would yield a 167% increase in Relative Feed Value!
