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!
Jerry Joe H, a rancher in Arkansas sent us grass analysis data after applying SEA-90 as a broadcast fertilizer to one of his pastures. He claims to have increased his grass and cow production and quality by incorporating SEA-90’s minerals and trace elements into his fertility and cattle mineral program.
I just finished baling our first cutting of hay for 2015 from a 39 acre field where we’ve been experimenting with SEA-90. Last year we sprayed 5 lbs per acre SEA-90 Foliar fertilizer one time after green-up and harvested 55 round bales. Hay quality was excellent and within weeks of feeding to our dairy cows we saw an increase in milk butterfat and protein which improved our income. This year we broadcast 50 lbs per acre SEA-90 Natural Fertilizer on the same 39 acre field in January and aerated the entire field with a field aerator. We are beyond delighted with the results. First, our hay was ready to cut and bale five days earlier than previous years and we baled a new field record for first cutting of 128 round bales! We’re sold on SEA-90!
In addition to my normal fertilizer I sprayed my hay pastures with 5 lbs SEA-90. I feel like it was well worth it and gave me a great return. On my first cutting I cut 5 round bales to the acre. My volume continued to be very good for my other two cuttings.
I also sprayed my blueberry bushes and my yard. My blueberry bushes produced more berries than ever before and I got several comments on how good my yard looked and that has never happened before. I will be using SEA-90 again this year.
During 2012, our hay was analyzed by OK State University and were very unhappy with the results. We learned about SEA-90 in 2013 and applied 5 lbs SEA-90 Foliar to our hay crop for the first time. Our hay was once again analyzed. There was an astounding difference between 2012 and 2013. SEA-90 increased crude protein (CP) from 7.5% to 13.6%, total digestible nutrients (TDN) from 55% to 58%, and relative feed value (RDF) increased from 58 to 88. The acid detergent fiber (ADF) decreased from 32% to 29% (poor quality forage has higher ADF percent values). We plan to spray our hay during the spring and after each cutting in 2014 and 2015 and hope to improve the quality even more. We are sold on SEA-90!
My customer applied one ton (133 lb per acre) SEA-90 to 15 acres of grasses. He grazed 28 head (almost head per acre) and was still managed to cut three round bales per acre to put up for the winter. He is thrilled with SEA-90.
I use SEA-90 to grow corn. The corn has grown to eight feet tall and has as many as five ears whereas normally without SEA-90 I only produce an average of three ears per talk.
For the past three years I foliar applied approximately eight pounds SEA-90 per acre on 12 acres of grasses. As an experiment, I quit applying at a certain point on my field. The SEA-90 treated pasture grew grasses 4-6” taller. The local ag extension agent did not believe me until I took him to the field and he visibly saw the difference from a distance of 300 yards.
I just wanted to send a link to a little video the kids put together that paints a picture of the “rodeo” that goes on in Annapolis, MO making Sea-90 grown and re-sprayed hay. Hope you enjoy. Git-rrrr-dun!
