School District on Board

"The 3" Rainbolt has been such a success in turning our grass greener and has reduced the amount of watering. We learned about Magnation from Fruitvale school district and the positive results they had seen. We're also interested in the health aspect of the water fountains and treating the water to our buildings as well."

~ Babe Paul Meyers, Superintendent, Board member and Science teacher; Standard School District, Bakersfield, California

Healthier Plants with better color and stronger vigor

"The Pinery has been trialing the Magnation Turfbolt throughout the nursery for several months. We are seeing healthier plants with better color and stronger vigor. We also trialed some seed and saw quicker germination. We have been pleased with the results so far."

~Brad Blaes, The Pinery LLC, Escondido, California

More time-and cost-effective than wetting agents

“It’s clear to me that this product is doing what I was told it was going to. We have restored our soil and turf back to a healthy condition using half as much water, with the Magnation product. And it’s much more time-and cost-effective than using any type of wetting agent to try to get similar results. The product is already paying for itself after only several months.” 

~ Brian Prine,  Director of Maintenance, Operations and Transportation, Fruitvale School District, Bakersfield, California

No need for gypsum with better infiltration... plus GPM boost

"I heard about Magnation through my friend/neighbor Mark Merritt and I was very skeptical in the beginning. But as soon as we had installed the Magnation systems on our pumps; gallons per minute went up from 1700 gpm to 2000 gpm on one pump, and 2000gpm went up to 2300 gpm on another pump. We haven’t used gypsum since we’re getting better infiltration with no run off, and our trees are healthier…I’m lovin what I’m seeing and sharing it with my neighbors. When can you deliver a 16” Turbulator?"

 ~ Kelley Ivankovic, Central Valley farms, Porterville, CA

No Salt Problems for Claremont Country Club Golf Course

"Salt levels are not building up like in years past. Turf is healthier then it has been in the last few years."

~ Josh Clevenger, Golf Course Superintendent, Claremont Country Club, Oakland, CA

ADIOS, SULFURIC ACID!

"Magnation has helped me transition away from using sulfuric acid as we have for years; and I've seen it work with our fertilizer very well. I'm very happy with it, and so are my potatoes, wheat, barley, and onions."

~ Jerry Gross, MHB Farms, Moses Lake, WA

Soil & Pesticides

"Lowered soil pH, and increased kill rate on pesticides."

~ Jeff Schmederer, Pistachio grower, Mendota, CA

Better Penetration in WASCO, CA

"Better water penetration."

~ Ben Schroeder, Almond grower, Wasco, CA

No Stick Tights

"It works! Better infiltration and no stick tights on our almonds."

~ Mike & Scott Pressley, Modesto, CA

BETTER COVERAGE

"Better leaf coverage with our spraying."

~ Donnie Rose, Pistachio grower, Kettleman City, CA

27% YIELD INCREASE

In my thirty years of farming, I haven't seen corn like this. We got 27% increase in yields using the Magnation system.

~ Chuck Dees; Drip 2000 Irrigation, Mendota, CA

Less Inputs

Using the Magnation water treatment has noticeably reduced the quantities of our inputs. We are using significantly less than other pomegranate growers in the area.

~ Mike Etchegoinberry, Etchegoinberry Farms, Mendota, CA

BETTER ALMONDS, soil pH

I'm getting better penetration and my almond trees are looking great. I also noticed my pH dropped from 8.0 to 7.3. My wife is impressed with the plants around the house.

~ Fred Scott, Atwater, CA

Greener pistachio trees

I've noticed greener pistachio trees where I have installed the Magnation system than the rest of my fields.

~ Sam Fisher, Madera, CA

Better than sulfuric acid

There was a night and day difference where we have the calcium issues. We're also seeing better water infiltration and moisture retention. Our soils are mellower and our trees look healthier in comparison to where we use sulfuric acid.

~ Robert Jones, Robert Jones Farms, Fresno, CA

better water infiltration & soil moisture retention

We're noticing better water infiltration and soil moisture retention for my onions, almonds, pistachios, cotton, and tomatoes using Magnation's water systems.

~ Tony Azevedo, Stone Land Company, Lemoore, CA

35% higher yield, SPINACH

My baby spinach yield was over 35% higher with the Magnation unit. It gave me uniformity of seed germination so I could harvest all at the same time.

~ Wayne Gularte, Rincon Farms, Gonzales, CA

800 pound per acre increase, spinach

We had an 800 pound per acre increase in our spinach program using Magnation's water system as well as reduction in our water use.

~ Mike Thorp; Tanimura & Antle, Soledad, CA

better quality produce, yields, scale reduction

We had improved yields and quality of our radicchio using Magnation's water system. I noticed better quality on my tomatoes which I was able to export. We also installed a Magnation system on one tower and another tower without; it was night and day difference in scale buildup. The one with Magnation's system had significant reduction in scaling in our cooling tower.

~ Jeff Marchini; J.Marchini Farms, Le Grand, CA, Former Farm Bureau President

Less Water, Better Grapes

Due to better penetration and water retention in the soil, we've cut back water use significantly while improving the quality of our grapes. We also didn't have to inject calcium, and do not have the usual mineral buildup in our emitters."

~ Mark Merritt & John Zaninovich, Merritt Farms, Porterville, CA

21% increase in yield, Broccoli

"During our last harvest season we achieved a 21% increase in yield of our broccoli using Magnation's water systems."

~ Scott Howington; Imperial Valley, CA

Higher yield & improved hard water problem

"Using Magnation's system helped with my hard water problem, increased my crop yield and improved plant quality."

~ Matt Hayes; Bounty of the Valley Farm, King City, CA

Water Savings for Organic Farms

"Magnation's water system causes better water penetration for my vegetable crops and I use less water."

~ Matthew Englehart; Be Love Farm, Vacaville, CA

boron toxicity and sulfur, no more!

A dramatic difference with our boron toxicity and sulfur. With high boron levels we were able to grow strawberries and peppers; and our sulfur smell went away after installing Magnation's water systems.

~ Pat Herbert, Hollister, CA

ONION VIGOR, soil pH

Our onions look great this season we're noticing better soil penetration. Our soil pH is definitely heading in the right direction on the treated field.

~ Jeff Schmiederer, Schmiederer Farms, Mendota, CA

19 Bale increase, Hay

"19 bale increase on our 10 acre controlled trial. Increased new growth and yield with one irrigation"

~ Peter LoBue; LoBue Farms, Los Baños, CA

As effective as gypsum

"Works as effective as gypsum in leaching fields."

~ Grimmway Farms, Imperial Valley, CA

Deeper Infiltration & Moisture Retention

Moisture gains spiked at various depths up to five feet, previously never showing these moisture gains. The farm has noticed gains in system pressure covering more zone.

Very happy!

Very happy with the Magnation unit. We're not having the salt and calcium issues like we were having before!

~ Joe Schafer, Flemings Flower Fields Nursery, Lindsay, CA

Seed Separation for Easier Planting

"Reduction in electrostatic and separation of seeds for easier planting"

~ Bolthouse Farms, Lancaster, CA

Hardness down from 40 to 4 grains

Our scale was way down on our lines and we didn't have to clean or change any of our emitters on our prune trees. The hardness of our water at home went down from from 40 to 4 grains.

~ Paul Johl, Stone fruit grower, Yuba City, CA

NO CALCIUM ON MY EMITTERS

I could wipe the calcium residue from my drip toe emitters with my finger where I had installed Magnation; whereas in my other field without the Magnation system, the emitters had hardened with calcium. Also, water soaks in better."

~ Bob Vanella, Almond producer, Vanella Farms, Chico and Colusa, CA

Mellower Soils & Scale Reduction

We've noticed much better penetration and retention of moisture in our high pH soils resulting in healthier, mellower soils with easier harvest of our spuds; as well as significant reduction in scale in our cooling tower and much more uniform mist in our cooler using Magnation’s systems.

~ Aj Ochoa, Terra Gold Farms, Othello, WA
