California Safe Soil has an agreement in place with Dr. Edwin Lewis at the University of California at Davis to test the crop, soil and environmental impact of food hydrolysate in agricultural applications. Dr. Lewis and the CSS Operations team are ready to provide the necessary field and technical support to work with the company's prospective farm customers in designing, implementing, and completing field tests of food hydrolysate.
We have selected the following crops for detailed investigation by Dr. Lewis:
If you are interested in running a free trial on one of these crop applications, or are interested in running a trial for a crop application not listed above, please email us. We would love to follow up.
CSS, in conjuction with Dr. Lewis, is ready to assist and arrange field trials for farming operations that are interested in participating in our free trial program. We will provide both technical and field support for the application process to ensure a successful trial for any prospective operation willing to participate in the program. Accumulated data received from the self-directed tests for Dr. Lewis to conduct a meta-analysis of the results, for dissemination and publication. To start the process on your free trial, or to get further information on our free trial program, please email us. We would be happy to assist you.
We are now working together with Dr. Lewis and his staff to produce preliminary growth trials of the selected crops in the laboratory and greenhouse. here.
Below are preliminary results from tomato growth trials in sterile soil in Dr. Lewis's lab are shown below*:
*Control is no fertilizer; H2H is our food hydrolysate; Urea is a common chemical fertilizer. Research performed in the lab of Dr. Edwin Lewis, University of California at Davis, 11/11.
