    Published Oct 20, 2018

    We just received a wonderful testimonial from a grower in California whose crop was infected with Russet Mites. He is using our new Aloe 420 product on his crop. This is what he had to say:To the Aloe420 Team:I took over a 400 outdoor plant grow that was totally stressed by russet mites and if it were not for applying Aloe420 I would have lost the grow. The plant was split in half from the mite infestation and after 5 weeks of Aloe420 treatment, the plant has grown back together!Aloe420 saved us, and we will use it in our protocol from seed to pre-flower in all future grows...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”... Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process. Right? Not so fast…Let me preface this entire article by saying that I am not anti-hemp... I should also note that the opinion of this article is for the future of growing hemp... I’m skeptical of how hemp production is going to play out over the next few years...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 18, 2018

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter... He knows one farmer who decided to grow a mix of sorghum sudangrass, sunn hemp, daikon radish, sunflower and cowpeas right after his corn crop, before planting winter wheat...

    20 Years Later: What Roundup Ready Crops Taught Us About Weed Management

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Aug 21, 2018

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically. The initial ease and success of Roundup Ready technology may have caused some farmers to become lax with their weed management programs, which was ultimately a factor in the introduction of glyphosate-resistant weeds... Purdue University and the University of Illinois are two institutions that offer resistance testing for weeds including Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and giant ragweed...

    Test results of 100% natural biostimulant results in organic farming breakthrough (AgroNews)

    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 29

    When a retired farmer and organic farming consultant is motivated to put his boots back on and get back into the fields, you know something special is happening. That’s exactly how Daniel Rotberg felt when he studied the first GroAloe trial conducted on grapes with a major leafhopper infestation. The trial shows that, “The overall health of the Vineyard has completely transformed from weak and in some places, diseased plants, to a robust and healthy condition with many more grape shoots now forming. What is even more encouraging is that all of the new growth has not been bitten by any new or pre-existing leafhoppers... ” The results that GroAloe is showing on crops ranging from grapes grown in Canada, rice in Indonesia to Cannabis and Hemp in California and Oregon are remarkable...

    The full report and testimonial are forthcoming from the 200 plants that were infested by Root Aphids…
    Here’s the preliminary report:

    The aphid test proved that although Aloe 420 (Variation of GroAloe for Hemp and Cannabis growers) does not kill them, we know for sure it deterred them and the grower feels that Aloe420 helped him have a very successful harvest from what looked like a disaster from the infestation. He harvested 800 lbs. from the 200 plants!!
    Generally, one sees 2 lbs per plant or 2 lb per light depending on the type of grow. Anything above that is excellent.  #Hemp, #Cannabis
