What our clients say about us.

I grow about 800 acres of corn. On 600 acres, I applied SumaGrow directly on top of the seed bed at the time of planting using a 4″ band. Then, on 300 of the 600 treated acres, I applied SumaGrow directly over the corn (as a foliar spray) approximately six weeks after sprouting using a 6″ band.

The results were great for all 600 acres, but the 300 that received a second application did much better. Because we harvest using contract labor, I can’t give exact results, but what I do know is the plants that received one SumaGrow application produced longer ears.

Each year had between 4 and 6 more grains than the untreated corn. The plants that received two applications not only produced ears that were 4 – 6 grains longer, but each ear had 3 – 4 additional rows. Altogether, I achieved an approximate 40% increase in yield! Not only did I experience a higher yield, but the 600 acres treated with SumaGrow matured ten days earlier than the untreated section.

Because of this, I got an additional thirty-five cents per bushel when I was the only person who could supply the local ethanol plant with mature, dry corn. As far as cost goes, my usual fertilizer program includes applying trace minerals which cost around $27,000. With SumaGrow, though, I didn’t need this. In summary, the early maturity with additional .35/bushel more than paid for SumaGrow product, the increase in yield more than paid for the product, and $27,000 savings on trace minerals more than paid for the product.

I’m very happy with my results, and I can’t wait to use SumaGrow again this year!

I grow 1500 acres of cotton in addition to other crops that I treat with a conventional fertilizer program. I chose two 10 acre conventionally fertilized plots of cotton, one of which I treated with an additional product containing IOA SumaGrow. The 10 acres treated with a product containing IOA SumaGrow:

Produced 100 lbs/acre more in lint cotton | Produced $10/acre more in cotton seed | Matured 10 days earlier | Tap root was an average of 6” longer

After the cotton reach maturity, it was exposed to a storm that produced winds in excess of 50 mph. The treated plot stood tall and was undamaged. The untreated cotton was pushed to the ground, inflicting damage to the stalk and cotton bowls.

I would like to thank you and your company for making a product that actually does what is supposed to do. There are a lot of products out there that claim miracle result; your product actually is a miracle. Not only is it the easiest fertilizer to apply, but it is organic which makes it great for using on food plots near our lake, and stream. I can honestly say as you have seen from the pictures that SumaGrow is worth the money. For the first time in eight years of growing food plots our fields were lush and green even in August.

I am so impressed that after last year’s results we are only using SumaGrow on our plots this year, and have cut traditional fertilizers out completely. I look forward to using this also for the time saving advantage of being able to mix my herbicides with SumaGrow. This reduces soil compaction. Once again thank you for a great product and happy growing.

After seeing a news article on TV about your product, I decided to give it a try.

I have a raised bed vegetable garden in the back yard of my home. I’ve gardened this way for the last several years. It has always been a successful way to garden but I have never had such dramatic results as I have seen since using your SumaGrow product only one time!

The plants are greener, healthier, and stronger than they have ever been. They are larger and each plant is loaded with fruit. I was very skeptical about the product in the beginning, but I believe it will be a very beneficial tool in gardening vegetables and flowers. All my plants have grown so green and so sturdy that I cannot wait so see the harvest.

SumaGrow has made a believer out of me. I have not used any commercial fertilizer at all and still have these great results using your completely organic product.

BSEI has been researching and utilizing microbial solutions for two decades, including the 10 years developing the technology specifically to improve agricultural production while reducing its environmental impact. The company is now sending its co-branded products to over 40 countries.

The technology of SumaGrow® contains soil microorganisms, selected for their ability to increase soil fertility and plant health, and is blended with liquid humates for easy application. SumaGrow® has been tested on hundreds of different crop types in varied climates and soil conditions. Overall, studies demonstrate that SumaGrow® products can increase yields 20% on average and decrease fertilizer applications up to 50%, depending on the crop and initial condition of the soil. Referenced in college textbooks, gardening books, and countless magazines, products containing SumaGrow® continue to make headlines because of its many benefits for the farmer, the soil, and the earth.
