I have for the last three years been promoting a product that was developed by Mr. Bill Coats, the father of Aloe Vera products. It took over 50 years to make this happen. In these past three years, I have learned that despite the facts and test, most agricultural companies are not willing to try a product that is 100% organic. You can show them facts and actual trials and use and it is like hitting a brick wall. I have come to realize that third world or less developed countries are more open to nonchemical ways of cultivation then developed countries. I think that developed nations are addicted to chemicals. I seriously do not know what to do to open farmers eyes to healthier, sustainable crops. I am talking about higher yields, less fertilizer, and getting rid of pesticides and fungicides.
Third world or lesser developed countries are greatly more open to change. In Indonesia we are in some cases doubling rice yields, we are the only product to help with VSD and BPR in cocoa trees. We are on our way to Guatemala to help with CLR in Coffee trees. I gave free product to Italy to test against Sella in Olive trees. What have they done? Nothing. What has been the result of inaction? 250,000HA of olive trees uprooted and burned.
We have become so comfortable using chemicals to solve problems, that we have become closed minded in other possibilities. The world of organic products have a serious uphill battle in part to growers being lazy, cost, chemicals are much cheaper and to hell with what might get into the food chain. Our recent chemical analysis of rice after using GroAloe showed no sign of toxic chemical residue. Guess what? They only used GroAloe and fertilizer. When I say fertilizer, in previous years up to 500KG per HA were used. This season 2.5KG (this is not a type-o). No pesticides, fungicides or repellants either were used. We are not a phytosanitary product, we are a soil and plant amendment. No magic here. Go figure. The natural ecosystem has returned to these rice fields.
Will GroAloe work on everything? We do not know. We do know that everything that we have tried it on it has performed beautifully. Every virus, fungus, mold, yeast, and bacteria it has been tried on it has irradicated. Will it work on every kind of pathogen, we do not know. Do we know how Asprin works after all these years? No. Is it worth trying? What do you think?
We are slowly killing ourselves and this planet trying to solve everything with chemicals. It is time to think outside the box. So before you order gallons of pesticides, fungicides, or any other chemicals, please think about the possible alternatives out there.
Before everyone gets defensive, yes I want to make money with our product, but I have a clear conscience that not only is GroAloe helping the environment, but in many cases, it is helping growers in third world countries increase yields and helping their socioeconomic standing.
It is time to wake up about chemical use and think about alternatives. Yes, there is possibly going to be some added cost, but the consumers today are willing to pay this minor increase in cost. So don't be lazy, think before your dump gallons of chemicals on your fields and crops.
