The following crops were all grown in the USA with a plant nutrient that could not be classified as a fertilizer or claimed to be a pesticide. This product usage was solely, in alternation or mixed with existing agri-chem products! What was reported was there was an increase in production and no yield losses. This was while surrounding farms had significant production losses due to infestation, vine decline and and TYLCV virsus!
Tomatoes (Round,Roma) 5000+ Acres:
The types of tomatoes were regular round and Roma's., From transplanting to 70 days, nothing was used except the Adjuvant every 7 days, except after dew or rain. 70 days in the crop we started alternating with the regular spray program. Also Used in the last 1/3 of the crop life. Used the product solely, rotation or mixed with regular program of every 7 days. The results for both tomatoe types was excellent with increased product size and wegiht and no use of copper sulfate. Farmer was very concerned about copper sulfate toxicity, and damage to soils and future farming. Other surrounding farms were destroyed by Bacterial Spot and or TYLCV transported by white files - Tomato yellow leaf curl virus! A common problem in the following countries USA: Florida.

Vine Decline: Watermelon growers had been hammered by a disorder currently being called watermelon vine decline. When a number of growers reported problems with watermelon vine collapsing as the crop approached harvest. Initial symptoms appear as a slight yellowing or weak area in the field, followed by wilting of the vines, scorched and brown leaves, defoliation, and rapid mature vine collapse, and can destroy a crop in less than 10 days. None of the Adjuvant watermelon fields had any vine decline!
