Farmers have gotten Frost protection in Michigan, Kentucky and Florida. The crops have been Tobacco, Corn, Tomatoes and Soybeans















#41 Soysoap, Brix and Soybeans Way North Double Crop Line

Experiment: The soybeans were planted August 15th, 2008 and were at their 6th week at 12 inches before treatment. The Soybeans were near Lansing, Michigan in 2008. The starting location of this double crop soybean experiment was 250 miles north of I-70 so the double crop. The experiment was to see if we could double crop soybeans, and we did although we had 2 nights of 10 or more hours at 26 degrees, untreated plants all died. The test was to see how Soybeans reacted to Soysoap and Brix Levels observations. The purpose of this is to show that achieving higher Brix means higher C02 consumption for the plants, healthier plant, frost protection and increased crop production. Healthy Soybeans can defend themselves against Pests and Weather.

Brix before spraying on both plots at 11:55 tested Brix at 11 am, Temperature was 84 degrees and sunny day.

9-3-2008 2.35 PM, Brix after spraying Soysoap on Soybeans, and not spraying Soysoap on Soybeans. After just 3 hours of spraying Soysoap. Soybean Brix with Soysoap 17, Soybean Brix without Soysoap 12. Comment: Soysoaped Soybeans increased Brix levels from 11 to 17 or 54%. Physiologically the Soybean sugar factory had reacted to the Soysoap with a 54% increase in Brix, which eventually would lead us to the accidentally develop our frost protection product. The untreated soybean increased Brix only 10% which could just be attributed to natural photosynthesis process during the day as it was a sunny
day.

Day 2, To early at 9.30 to take Brix reading should be in the middle of afternoon. Brix was lower than we started, we were concerned.

Day 3, Now that we had a proper time for Brix reading the project was looking better. Soysoaped Beans were 13 vs 8, 5 points higher.

09-10-08: Comment: Phase 1 of experiment, After 7 days the farmer decided to spray Soysoap again. Farmer had taken unfortunately Brix reading inconsistently during the day from 9 am to 6 pm. But in spite of that the Soybeans with Soysoap always had higher Brix Levels everyday. Phase 2 starting comments: 09-10-08 1:00p.m. 68 degrees sunny and 10 mph wind, Soybeans with Soysoap Brix 15, Soybeans without Soysoap without Brix 15. Second foliar spray began at 1:00p.m. checked again @ 3:30p.m. Soybeans with Soysoap Brix 15, Soybeans without Soysoap Brix 12. We applied 2 oz of Soysoap with the mixture of tracite, sugar, sea salt vinegar and ammonia.

FREEZE WARNING: 10-03-08 6:20p.m, 50 degrees freeze forecast, Soybeans with Soysoap Brix16, Soybeans without Soysoap without Brix 12. Sprayed the bean plants with Soysoap (8 oz) and sugar (5lbs) 13 gal H2O. Farmer called about Frost/Freeze, and we guessed and told him to use the Soysoap to activate the sugar factory and drain all the water out of the plants xylem and phloem, it worked. All untreated plants died after first freeze.

10-14-08 1:30 pm 60 degrees had 3 freezes since last Brix checks: Soybeans Soysoap Brix with 14, Soybeans without Soysoap 14 this was our last Brix checks we did do pod counts on the two plots with the following results:

Test 1 pod count with Soysoap 9-15-11-5-12=52 52./.5=10.4
Test 1 pod count without Soysoap 8-4-3-2-3=20./.5=4

Test 2 pod count with Soysoap 12-18-14-15-6=65./.5=13
Test 2 pod count without Soysoap 6-5-3-7-1=22./.5=4.4

Average pod count test with Soysoap 13+10.4=23/2 = 10.4 pods
Average pod count test without Soysoap 4.4+4 =8.4/2= 4.2 pods

Farmer Final Report: Untreated Plants No Soybeans, Soysoap Treated Beans 12 bu acre. Not Great but they grew them.

Soysoap Report: Soysoap Beans had higher Brix Levels than Untreated Every Test.

Final Tally on Brix for CO2 Consumption: Soysoaped Beans Averaged 11.75, Untreated 9.31 = Treated 21% CO2 Consumption.
