January marked a special time for Soil Technolgy and the Mellano Company, since it was the first testing of our patented polymer at the infamous Carlsbad Flower Fields. A savings of 20% has been maintained and we are now conducting the next and final validation trial at their 350 acre ranch, located in San Luis Rey.
For this trial, separate irrigation lines have been installed to apply the polymer in four replicated areas onto one of the myrtle fields. A valuable aspect of this trial is the data comparison we will be able to achieve, since production records for this particular field goes back 15 years. So not only will we be gathering water savings data, but will also measure productivity rates as well. We are expecting great results from this trial, so stay tuned for more updates!
