"I only used 209 pounds of fertilizer on the Magnation-treated seed, which historically used 260 to 300 pounds of fertilizer."
~ Diedrich Nielsen, Farmer in Alberta, Canada
"8.5 bushels per acre increase on our corn harvest on controlled trial with Seed Maximizer. I knew it would be better, but I didn't know it would be that much better. That's pretty impressive."
~ Lee Fintel, Superior, Nebraska
"After installing Magnation on the course, we saw better roots and no tearing of the turf during aerification. We also saw a significant reduction in water usage over the first season."
~Aaron Smith, Superintendent Red Rocks Country Club, Morrison, Colorado
"My greatest challenge as a turf manager is salt. Our soils are high in salinity and if not managed properly our irrigation water can be toxic as well. Frequent water testing allows us to monitor salinity levels and adjust our maintenance practices accordingly.
I was skeptical of this product, but with very little fresh water runoff that spring, I felt that now was the time to try it. I admit, I still don't have a solid understanding of how it works, but I like results, and that is what I got.
We had an incredibly dry start to the season and my irrigation pond was low and poor quality (EC of 1500 µS/cm). I have been forced to use irrigation water of similar quality in the past, and I know what the response the turf has after prolonged use and it's not good! But with the Magnation system, I wasn't seeing a reduction of turf quality that I was expecting. Day after day I would come to work expecting turf decline, but it never happened.â"
~Superintendent Dean Zilinski, Superintendent, Coal Creek Golf Course, Alberta, Canada
"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 and seed treatment."
~ David Johnson, D. Johnson Farms, New Jersey
"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
"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 used it on seed and saw quicker germination. We have been pleased with the results."
~Brad Blaes, The Pinery LLC, Escondido, California
"We are seeing 30% faster germination in the mini pepper. Â 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
"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
"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
"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 loving what I'm seeing and sharing it with my neighbors. When can you deliver a 16" Turbulator?"
~Kelley Ivankovic, Central Valley farms, Porterville, CA
"Everything being equal on both sides, the one side treated with Magnation appeared to have less dry patches and the turf was denser. I honestly believe that the Magnation treatment helps water penetrate the soil and therefore we're getting deeper roots and healthier turf."
~ Phil McQuade, Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, CO
"I see results from the field and sprayers to my shower head. For important events, Magnation maximizes our iron supplement and gives our turf that deeper green to "pop" for important events. We're installing on rest of our fields, buildings to help with mineral scale build up, laundry to save and prolong our washing machines and for our landscape. We've lost a few trees from our municipal high-salt water, however where Magnation is installed, the trees are thriving."
~ Phil McQuade, Dicks Sporting Goods Arena, Commerce City, CO
"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
"With Magnation on the irrigation system, we see a considerably more vital grass plant and better root growth!"
~ Kees Haaksman, Agterberg BV (specializing in equine flooring), The Netherlands
"We have seen a dramatic difference in water penetration and retention, 20% water savings, deeper roots and better quality turf."
~ Ron le Boulanger, The International Golf Course, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
PSV Eindhoven is also proud user of Magnation, seeing more turf uniformity and better quality turf using 20% less water.
"In addition to better distribution of irrigation water, there is more grass density on the treated side of the field, and that counts!"
~ PSV Eindhoven, Professional Dutch Soccer Club, The Netherlands
"I was getting constant complaints about bad odors after irrigating the stadium field. That's because we irrigate with ferrous well water. Hydrogen sulfide in the water creates a pervasive rotten egg smell. After installing Magnation, I literally stuck my nose between the grass blades at the very first turn after irrigating, and to my surprise the horrible smell had completely disappeared! In addition, we see stronger turf grass, better grass density, and fertilizer and pesticide savings."
~ Henk Schreuder, SC Heerenveen, The Netherlands
"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.Â 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!
"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
"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
"Our worst field has become one of our top performing fields. We're recommending Magnation systems to our neighbors."
~ Paul Harker, Beryl, UT
"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
"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
"I've noticed greener pistachio trees where I have installed the Magnation system than the rest of my fields."
~ Sam Fisher, Madera, CA
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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 on our 10 acre controlled trial. Increased new growth and yield with one irrigation."
~ Peter LoBue; LoBue Farms, Los BaÃ±os, CA
"Our water tastes better, and our plants are looking good around the house. We're recommending it to our son who farms."
~ Glenda and Earl Berlier, Lakin, KS
"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
"Our base saturations of calcium were over 70% for the first time on record for our fairways, and our sodium levels were below 2%, which we've never seen before. With Magnation, the sodium was reduced by 50% in our base saturations. We went from 120 pounds per acre of sodium down to 60 pounds, in our soil tests. The claims that Magnation makes about flushing sodium through the soil and solubilizing cations "magnesium, calcium and potas" are very true. We definitely saw that in our own results. We're finding tremendous benefits to our soil chemistry since the Magnation units have been put in and this has been realized in healthier, easier to manage turfgrass."
~ Dean Piller, Superintendent, Cordova Bay Golf Course, British Columbia, Canada
"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
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.
"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
"More vigorous corn, higher yields with less water and fertilizers with the Magnation system."
~ Gerald Miller, Spaulding, NE
"My cattle look healthier, my corn is looking really great and my water tastes better."
~ Gerry Konan, Juniata, NE
"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
"We have a Magnation system installed on 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
"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
"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
