GroGenesis Commences AgraBurst Field Tests with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension ServicesMay 12, 2014
SPRINGVILLE, TN--GroGenesis, Inc., (OTCBB: GROG) ("GroGenesis" or the "Company"), rights holders and manufacturers of AgraBurst, an innovative liquid plant growth enhancement product, is very pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (“AgriLife”) a member of the Texas A&M University System (“TAMUS”), an agency of the State of Texas, to undertake a two-year field study regarding the efficacy of AgraBurst.
The trials will be conducted on both corn and cotton at each of two locations, the Stiles Farm Foundation near Thrall, Texas, and the Texas A&M University Impact Farm near College Station, Texas. Regionally appropriate hybrids/cultivars of cotton and corn will be selected and planted at both locations. Individual treatment schedules for each crop have been determined and will be rigorously adhered to.
Composite soil samples will be collected pre-treatment and following harvest and will be analyzed for pH, conductivity, primary nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium), secondary nutrients (calcium, magnesium, sulfur), micronutrients (copper, iron, manganese, zinc), and gravimetric soil water content. In addition, the environmental parameters of air temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed will be recorded at the time of each foliar treatment application.
In-season data collection will include emergence/stand counts at approximately 10 and 18 days post-emergence. Plots will be harvested mechanically or by hand. For corn, yield and bushel weights will be determined. For cotton, yield, percent turnout, and fiber quality will be determined. An annual report summarizing first-year results will be developed and submitted by December 15, 2014 with a final report summarizing results for both years of the study developed and submitted to GroGenesis by December 15, 2015.
Company CEO Joe Fewer comments, “We are extremely pleased to have the services of the AgriLife team undertaking this very important study. We’d like to thank the co-project leaders Dr. Mark L. McFarland, Dr. Gaylon D. Morgan, Dr. Ronnie W. Schnell, Dr. Dennis L. Coker, and Mr. Dale A. Mott who all are acknowledged agricultural specialists. We look forward to what we believe will greatly aid our quest for definitive crop application data that we can extrapolate across a variety of crops and conditions relevant to increasing global agricultural demands.”
