Producer Trades Fungicide For Biology

Jeff Gross is a chickpea producer in a high disease area (Regina, SK). He was looking for a way to improve the health of his chickpea crop, without being so reliant on fungicide to get him to a successful harvest.


Jeff had tried many other biological products in the past with hardly any success at all. He knew that soil biology was key to building a healthy plant, but it was also key to improving his soil for future generations.


Jeff decided to involve himself in the education process of AdvancedAg's bio products. He loved the fact that he could brew the product on his farm and he felt that this was a way to get a high culture of bacteria out to his fields at a low cost.


So... in comes the brew shed!

The product was applied through the sprayer during the evening to avoid UV damage to the bacteria, which is always recommended for applications through a sprayer.

The ACF-SR paid off quickly. While neighbours and people in the surrounding areas were applying fungicide, Jeff didn't have to because of the health of his plants. His BRIX levels were extremely high in the areas he applied ACF-SR to.
