The application of SoilTech should allow garden tillers to break up soil more easily when gardening flowers, plants and vegetables. Plant seed germination increases which makes planting grass seed along with flowers, plants and vegetables more productive.
Radishes, carrots, and kidney beans were grown in a greenhouse under controlled conditions. The results recorded in Tables 1, 2, and 3 demonstrate the observed improvements in plant seed germination and yields from the use of SoilTech.
Table 1: Growth of Radishes in Bixby, OK Sandy Loam Soil
|Treatment||SoilTech||Germination||Yield Factor||Size Factor|
|SoilTech||2%||84%||220% morethan untreated||140% largerthan untreated|
|SoilTech||10%||79%||290% morethan untreated||230% largerthan untreated|

SoilTech has been particularly useful in treating fields under cultivation in which plants are growing or are newly transplanted, or in freshly seeded soils. By treating the areas immediately around the growing plants or planted seeds, effective aggregation of these critical areas can be accomplished without using SoilTech on the non-productive areas.
Users of SoilTech consistently report that flowers are brighter and garden vegetables such as onions, carrots, squash, beans, corn, tomatoes, potatoes and peppers are healthier, larger, and taste better.
This test supports the claim that SoilTech increases plant seed germination which aids in planting grass seed along with gardening, flowers, and plants. SoilTech should allow the use of garden tillers to be easier, requiring less time and effort.
