Everything is going fantastic Nick. I just sprayed my second application
of the GEM product last week, and the greens are looking great! I just
wish the temperatures would be more consistent with what they should be
this time of year. We’re expected to be well above average for the next
week at least. I’m ready for December weather.
I have recently become a user of GEM microbes, for my Olive Grove in Hallettesville, Texas. I applied the microbes to my 32,000 young olive trees with excellent results, using my fertigation system, three applications over a period of 6 weeks The trees have noticeably grown and are much healthier looking and have “greened up “ as part of their new health. I have used several fertilizers and the like but the Microbes have given the best results in such a short time following application.
The GEM microbes and other traditional materials will form an important part of my plan to rehabilitate the orchard soil which has lain fallow for many years and which needs a lot of work to bring the soil back to a good condition and ensure sustainability of my grove for years to come.
It’s been a long time and I apologize for that. We have had quite a renovation process going the last several weeks. I sent you some before and after photos today for you to use in whatever capacity you feel can most effectively advocate for what you, me, Tim, and Mike have accomplished together. These results are something for all of us to be proud of and are indisputable proof that the adherence and commitment to sustainability and the fundamentals of soil health are an effective and successful method of agronomic practices. There are very few properties in America (parks, golf courses, athletic fields, etc) that face the perfect triangle of agronomic challenges that we face here in Woodward. If it is successful here, it will work ANYWHERE in America.
The photos I sent are exactly, to the day, one year apart. 10/15/14 to 10/15/15. Despite the setbacks we experienced, we still improved dramatically over the course of the season. I can only assume that the speed at which we saw re-establishment was directly related to your product in combination with the other tools now available to me through our team. And we only got started in mid-summer. We haven’t even scratched the surface of what we’re capable of yet…very exciting!
I used G.E.M. Probiotic in a pen of 2 Jersey heifer calves. I also had a pen next to it with the same size and age heifer calves that were not receiving probiotics. The G.E.M. calves gained 2 pounds per week more than the untreated calves. Both pens were fed and watered the exact same amounts and on the same schedule. The overall condition of the calves being treated was better than that of the untreated calves. Eyes were brighter, hair was slick and shiny, and the calves seemed to play more and feel better. All of the calves are in the same pasture now and the G.E.M. calves still maintain an overall better appearance than the other two calves.
We’ve got to be honest with you. The only reason we tried your product, Septic Cleaner, is because we share the same grandchildren and we were looking at a big cash outlay to fix the septic system. When you talked to us you were up front and told us if there was a collaspe in the line your product wouldn’t work.
We followed your instructions and are very happy to say it did work. The first thing that occurred was the nasty smell disappeared. With in a week the nasty water on top of the grass disappeared and since we started using it we’ve had no more backups through the toilets or drains.
We will continue to use the Septic Cleaner on a monthly maintenance schedule and keep you posted on the continued results. Thank you, you saved us thousands of dollars.
Thanks for your time today, always great to speak with you…I will send more photos as our infant soil profile continues to develop. Over half of our greens didn’t survive last summer, we basically started all over this spring…keep in mind, the soil core in the photo is from July 3rd on bentgrass greens in the transition zone with high populations of nematodes and effluent irrigation water. Not a bad advertisement! I’ll be in touch.
