Cultivations that were not treated with MEGAGREEN were harvested every 4 to 5 days, and the fruits were much more smaller in size and quantity. No diseases or pests were noticed in any green houses. The cucumber cultivations that were not treated with MEGAGREEN showed slower growth and lower yield and distinctive curling and yellowness of the leaves and fruits were noticed.
The investigation had been performed on the 24th of June 2004 at 16 hours with the outdoor temperature being 28 degrees on the following cultivations in green houses : Zucchini, Tomato, Cucumbers and Peppers. The cultivation had been measured and photographed 12 days after the second treatment with MEGAGREEN
In relations to the last measurements that had been taken, the color of the leaf did not change and it had an intense green color while the leaf mass had not been increased as in the previous two treatments, but a 4 to 5 times gain in the quantity and size of the fruit had been observed. Also the quantity of flowers had increased which indicated that MEGAGREEN had been faze and that it had been distributed where it was needed the most (leaf – stem – flower – fruit).
In the meantime the cultivations had not been treated with any other manure or pesticides.
No types of diseases or pests where noticed. The irrigation regime had remained standard, but the supplied quantity of water had been reduced because MEGAGREEN contributed to a favorable moisture regime.
The plants that had not been treated with MEGAGREEN showed the following parameters: smaller leaf mass, larger leaf surface, light green to fruits had still been in the forming faze. Yellow coloration, stem and leaves had seemed to be less firm.
Color of the leaves as previously had been dark green; the height of the stems had been 30 centimeters higher (some plants being even higher) in comparison to measurements that had been taken 10 days earlier.
The quantity of the leaf mass increased, with which the stem and leaf strength also increased. The cultivations were filled with flower and fruit also the quantity and size of flower and fruit (apple size) were enhanced with comparison to the non-treated tomato cultivations.
The non-treated cultures had a decreased growth, with decreased leaf mass, fruits quantity and size (size of a walnut) are noticeably less successful and on some parts curling and yellowness of the leaves were noticed. The treatment with manure, insecticide and irrigation had been performed as a standard method.
Significant increased leaf mass and flower, while the color was the same characteristic intensity as the other treated cultivations. An increased growth of forty centimeters was noticed. A faster growth rate assigned to previous 15 to 20 days of everyday harvesting fruits, while on the other hand cultivations that were not treated with MEGAGREEN were harvested every 4 to 5 days, and the fruits were much more smaller in size and quantity. No diseases or pests were noticed in any green houses.
The cucumber cultivations that were not treated with MEGAGREEN showed slower growth and lower yield and distinctive curling and yellowness of the leaves and fruits were noticed.
The cultivations leaves, fruits and flowers displayed equal density and intense green coloration. At the time of our observation the fruits were the size of a walnut and could not be compared to any previous visit (because it was not performed).
Some areas of the greenhouse displayed a somewhat decreased development of the cultivations because the water had been held after intense irrigating. We recommended smaller quantities of water, because even with a 50-60% reduction of water, MEGAGREEN still had the capability to provide the cultivations with optimal conditions for growth and development.
