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.”

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 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!

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."

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

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 

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.

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

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

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.
