Soysoap Macademia Nusery Trails

100% to 269% Increase in Brix Level on Macademia.

Nature and Purpose of the Test

To determine the effect of Adjuvant upon various varieties of macademia seedlings in the measurement of their Brix content.

Procedure

>Adjuvant was sprayed onto various macademia seedlings at the rate of 1 litre diluted with 500 litres of water. Adjuvant was applied on August 10, 2006 and re-applied on the 23 rd of August, with the following results:

Observations : Brix levels seem to rise fairly rapidly [in one case by 100%] and then overtime gradually decrease back to the original starting Brix level. A fourteen day interval seems to be a good starting point for maintaining Brix levels. The above data also represents different varieties of macadamia trees, as the brix level in the last variety increased to 35 Brix an exceptionally high figure. Special equipment is required to extract plant sap for measuring macadamia leaf Brix levels.
