Zero fertilizers, 3 weeks earlier Greenhouse crop

"Our nursery crop is doing very well in the greenhouse. As much as three weeks sooner this season. No fertilizer at all. Just good Magnation water."

~ David Johnson, D. Johnson Farms, New Jersey

 

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

30% faster germination

"We are seeing 30% faster germination in the mini pepper.  From 6 days to 4.  We are also seeing greater plant vigor. The seed was  passed through the Magnation device and we are watering with Magnation treated water. Great results!"

~ Chris Martin, Wilson Produce AZ, Arizona

more uniform sprinkler performance and better throw distance

“We’ve seen more uniform sprinkler performance, better throw distance from the end gun on the pivot, and better infiltration resulting in less run off.  We’re installing our second Magnation unit on another of our pivot irrigation systems now.”

~ Roger Petersen Farms, Hardy, Nebraska

The whole shebang, in Nebraska

"I am getting a much better kill on resistance weeds with less drift. This is the way my system is set up with Magnation units: 1. The first one for the fresh water, 2. another one for the mixed chemicals, 3. a final one on the sprayer. I use both aerial and ground applicators.

Having my corn or soybean seed pass through a Magnation unit has given me a noticeable increase in plant population (increase germination), emergence, and early growth.

I have seen less runoff on my rolling land irrigated with pivots equipped with a Magnation unit, along with better plant health. In effect better use of water (I am in a restricted amount of water area).

I also installed two 3” Magnation units in a commercial building that I own. We noticed a great reduction of mineral deposits in the total water system... Auto flush toilets, automatic sink faucets, drinking fountains, coffee machine (better tasting and less deposits), our cooling tower, and the sewer system.

It has been amazing.”

~Les Bruntz, Oxford, Nebraska

Disease resistance against spider mites & cutworm

"Our area has a terrible infestation of spider mites and western black cutworm in the corn crops. The only field in the whole area that is not infected is the one where the Magnation unit is installed."

~ Marvin Pletcher, Yuma, Colorado

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

22% better yield, raspberries in South Africa

"The Magnation-treated block was the best performing block on the farm. It had the lowest counts of mold and cladisporium. Also the lowest levels of soft fruit, blistered fruit and low levels of insect damage. When the field was under attack from spider mites it was less severe in the Magnation-treated block. Comparing it to the control block trial block the Magnation treated block performed 22% better."

~ Hemel & Aarde Valley Farm, Hermanus District, Western Cape, South Africa

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

Saving $1,000-$3,000 in chemicals a month

We were spending upwards of $1,000-$3,000 in chemicals every month trying to eliminate the coliform count and control algae growth. Magnation is saving us money.

~ Gooike Dijkstra, Dairy Farmer, Random Lake, WI

Magnation Replaces Bleach for Algae & Coliform

We used to use bleach to treat the algae and coliform growth. Now, we don't use bleach at all. The only thing we changed was implementing the Magnation system.

~ Weibe Dijkstra, Dairy Farmer, Random Lake, WI

SAVING TIME AND MONEY

Cleaning labor went from 8-9 hours a week down to 3 hours a week. We're able to just brush any residue away instead of applying chemicals. It's a way to save money. We're saving 300 hours a year, at $15 bucks an hour, that's $4,500 in labor savings this year alone.

~ Weibe Dijkstra, Dairy Farmer, Random Lake, WI

hydrated cows are better producers

There's a difference between your cows having enough water and being hydrated. If you have a tough day and something happens where you run out of water, the cows know that they're out of water. They will lie down and not produce. Now, with the system, we're better able to handle those times. The cows are more hydrated with less water. The cows are better able to handle all kinds of stress. The overall water quality in the whole system really does make a difference. You don't wait until you run out of water before doing something, your cows are consistently hydrated with less water.

~ Weibe Dijkstra, Dairy Farmer, Random Lake, WI

Improved heat stress

The cows are better able to deal with the heat stress...all summer long it's been better than it's ever been before.

~ Weibe Dijkstra, Dairy Farmer, Random Lake, WI

NO MORE WATER SPOTS

"I have a wash bay in my farm shop, and prior to installing the Magnation device for the water in my shop, when I would wash off the equipment, it would always dry with terrible water spots on it from the calcium deposits in our water. Now, with Magnation, when I wash my equipment I can let it sun dry outside in 100 degree weather in the afternoon in July and there won't be a single water spot on the equipment!

~ Lee Fintel, Superior, Nebraska

High Calcium & Sodium

We saw improvement in infiltration despite our high calcium and sodium. We yielded heavy on the barley over 150 bushel per acre, average yield per acre is 129 bushels. I'm impressed with using the Magnation system. We're noticing better soil penetration, less run off and improvement on water flow.

~ Keith Nickerson, Howe, ID

500 more harvested ears of corn per acre

"Magnation has helped us with both seed germination and our irrigation. I can see night and day difference. The soil stays really moist even through extreme heat conditions. We've really had a dry, hot August, so I am especially impressed. Yesterday we did the counts and checked the weights (see photo below). I can say that we are getting a real benefit out of using the Magnation units. It's the combination of treating the seeds and treating the water." Check out the comparison pictures.

~ Gerry Konan, Junaita, NE

Scott Borman of Nebraska states...I did some computations based on the results that Gerry Konan's photos show. On his non-treated corn, he had 29,000 plants ... but with Magnation he harvested 29,500 plants. That's 500 more harvested ears of corn per acre. All you have to do is some simple math. I have 720 acres.  500 x 720 = 360,000 plants MORE if you use Magnation for seed germination. THAT'S LIKE HAVING ANOTHER 12 AND A HALF ACRES OF LAND! That's because of the extra seeds that were germinated. If that doesn't convince someone to try Magnation, I don't know what will!

Soy Bushel Increase with Seed Maximizer

"Last year we split our planter in half and we used Magnation treated corn seeds on one side and non-treated seeds on the other side, said Borman. On the Magnation side we saw about 1/2 a bushel increase per acre. In addition, my neighbor, who has the farm next to ours, tested the Magnation for his soybean seed germination, and we saw an increase of 6.5 bushels per acre on his crops. Right now, the price of beans are about $9.00 per bushel; that means you're getting $58 per acre more by treating the seeds with Magnation. So for 650 acres of soybean, he's getting over $38,000 more per growing season by running the seeds through the Magnation system."

~ Scott Borman, Schuyler, NE

NO CALCIUM ON MY SPRINKLERS

I've been using the Magnation unit on my sprinklers and sprayer; my corn has never looked this dark green and I'm not seeing the calcium deposit buildup on my sprinklers.

~ Anson Pansner, Oklahoma Panhandle, OK, & Dighton, KS

Didn’t have to spray for spider mites

Crop is looking great with less water used, didn't have to spray for spider mites on our corn field, wetter field two feet down, probe goes in easier.

~ Chuck Eitemiller, Armour, SD

From worst to best

Our worst field has become one of our top performing fields. We're recommending Magnation systems to our neighbors.

~ Paul Harker, Beryl, UT

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

Less water for Pecans

"We've been using substantially less water with our micro-sprinklers on our pecan trees. My wife is very happy with her flower garden and the Magnation Systems we've purchased. We're recommending Magnation to our family and friends."

~ Mike Peschka, Anthony, NM

30% less insecticides, Drift Control

I saved $9000 alone by using 30% less insecticides due to better solvency of my water, gained an extra zone due to the increase in my water flow as my pressure increased from 20 psi to 25 psi, the spray out of my wheat sprayer came out consistent the size of a pen head without any drops, the leaf yellow burn at the bottom of our peach trees towards the end of the season were reduced by 90% from last year. That's why we have the Magnation units on all of our pumps and our sprayer.

~ Bryan Noland, Noland Farms, Palisades, CO

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

1/2 ton increase, HAY

"We've had a .4 to 1/2 ton increase on our hay using the Magnation unit."

~ Gary Dickey, Monte Vista, CO

Improved Germination, No spray for Insects

Germination is good and quick, with better water penetration and moisture retention. The quality of our sedan barley was much better at 53 pounds per bushel. Didn't have to spray for insects which saved us $3 to $4 per acre including time, material and equipment. We also had a .4 to 1/2 ton per acre in increase of our hay in the first cutting using the Magnation system vs. control.

~ Gary Dickey, Del Norte, CO

Better Infiltration, Yield

"On our winter wheat we had a 10 bushel difference on 100 acres: 95 bushels with Magnation unit, and 85 bushels in our control field. We noticed better infiltration and greener plants."

~ Shane Grevins, Chapman, NE

Less Water, More Yield in Kansas

Water is clearer as it comes out from the sprinkler. In the field we installed the unit we were running 500 GPMs and it produced 20 tons of sorgum silage per acre, compared to the untreated field next to it running 700 GPMs and 18 tons per acre; that tells you the story.

~ Larry Ryan, Burdett, KS

Water Penetration, Drift Control, Alfalfa

We've seen that the leaves on the alfalfa were longer. We also found that the water was penetrating 4-6 deeper on the treated acreage. Even in the pivot tracks the water penetrated better. Another noticeable difference was reduced wind drift on the treated water.

~ Steve Shively, North Terreton, ID

Softer Water at Home

We like it. It makes our skin softer. And makes our grass grow faster and greener. And the water tastes better. Our dish water runs better and we use less soap.

~ Steven J. Bishop, Blackfoot, ID

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

Poultry weights doubled

"Poultry House #2 is outperforming the other houses by 7,500 to 15,000 pounds using the Magnation System.

~ Mark Litman, Seville, OH

Stretching our Water, Happy at Home

Noticing better water penetration and stretching our water in our wells. My wife loves the system at home with softening of the water.

~ Frank Brand, Frank Brand Dairy, Lovington, NM

25% less water

We're getting good results. Our pressure dropped by 10 pounds, and we used 25% less water and getting softer water in the house.

~ Brad Simon, Hoxie, KS 

As effective as gypsum

"Works as effective as gypsum in leaching fields."

~ Grimmway Farms, Imperial Valley, CA

No need to spray for insects

Our water absorbtion rate is better using less water on that circle, and we didn't have to spray for insects.

~ Ty Ryland, Monte Vista, CO

Less runoff, moisture retention

We're seeing less run off and the ground is holding the moisture better. We're installing more Magnation systems.

~ Jarvis Garetson, Sublette, KS

Mellow

Mellower soils.

~ Robert Long, Owasso, OK

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. View PureSense moisture results on Almonds. Blue vertical lines reflects date of installation (6/2/13). Data provided by independent consulting firm.

~ Almond Farmer, Chowchilla, CA

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

Higher Yield with 30% Less Water, Uniformity

Our results have been remarkable. Where we installed the Magnation unit, the corn out-yielded our other irrigated corn but used 30% less irrigation water. The corn was 11% better than that fields previous best yield, there was noticeably better uniformity across the sprinklers on the pivot, and our pumping costs were lower.

~ Lee Fintel, Superior, NE

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

30% Reduction in Water Hardness

Got the tests back from the lab. Magnation's system reduced the water hardness from 94.3 to 65.8 grains. A 30% reduction in hardness is significant in terms of percentages.

~ Don Taylor, President, NaEx Corp/Poulenger USA, Fertilizer Manufacturer, TX

Mellower Soil, Yield boost, Uniformity

Our sugar beets have bigger tops and look healthier with less stress. We're seeing better absorption where we previously had spots that looked like concrete. The treated area are now more vegetative and getting more uniformity. We're also stretching our water.

~ Justin Hunter, Heyburn, ID

TOP PRODUCING TATERS

The field where we've installed the Magnation system was one of our top producing fields.

~ Ryan Ashcroft, Hamer, ID

HEALTHIER POTATOES, LESS WATER

I chose soil-diverse fields for my potatoes to experiment on. The treated fields had more uniformity and healthier crops, using less water.

~ Brendon Rockey, Rockey Farms, Center, CO

LESS WATER & NITROGEN, MORE YIELD

Wayne feels this crop is the highest quality he has grown since he started farming. From mid July, he only had to put on .6 of water every 2.5 days compared to .75 - .8 in previous years. He used 50 units less nitrogen this year compared to previous years, although in all fairness feels he used too much those years. Vegetation was bigger and most uniform for Norkota 3s compared to any previous year.

~ Wayne Wedel Crop Consultant, Monte Vista, CO

Quality, uniformity, and yield...using less water!

I've farmed potatoes on this difficult, high-salt block for ten years and never got this kind of quality, uniformity, and yield...using less water!

~ Matt Seay, John M. Seay Farms, Bunnell, FL

WATER PENETRATION, UNIFORMITY, YIELDS

"I have noticed a better water penetration and water holding longer in the soil, more uniformity and higher yields on my potatoes."

~ "J. Prim Parker", Parker Farms, Hastings, FL

VIGOROUS CORN, LESS FERTILIZERS

More vigorous corn, higher yields with less water and fertilizers with the Magnation system.

~ Gerald Miller, Spaulding, NE

BETTER WATER QUALITY IMPACTS EVERYTHING

My cattle look healthier, my corn is looking really great and my water tastes better.

~ Gerry Konan, Juniata, NE

BUSHEL BOOST, NO SALT PROBLEMS

"After installing Magnation, we've been getting 225 to 260 bushels of corn per acre, and no salt issues."

~ Rex Whalen, Leoti, KS

WINTER WHEAT & CORN YIELD BOOST

Better 8% to 10% ($7000) net gain in winter wheat. Healthier stands in our corn; I'm happy to recommend Magnation to our local farmers.

~ Nate Meile, Meile Farms, Hugoton, KS

SOIL HEALTH & CORN

We have a Magnation system installed on the third tower of our pivot; corn looks really good! I'm convinced that the Magnation system is helping our soil. I'm very happy with it.

~ Bruce Miller, Zenda, KS

BETER FLOW, YIELD INCREASE DURING DROUGHT

As soon as I put this system on, I noticed my pressure dropped and immediately had better water flow. With drought conditions here in Kansas, my neighbors said my corn should be burned up by now... yet we're still going strong.The result: 10-30% increase in bushels harvested during drought conditions.

~ Western Kansas Corn Farmer

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

LESS WATER & FERTILIZER WITH HIGHER SOIL PETIOLES

We put one of Magnation's water treatment units in a field of potatoes with 3/4 mile rows. One pivot had the unit installed and one did not. The pivot with the unit was watered two revolutions less and we also applied less fertilizer. Our soil petioles read higher all year on the pivot with the unit.

~ Bryan Searle, Searle Farms, Shelley, ID
