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

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

Immediate Improvement

"We have had the unit installed for a month. We noticed a difference on the first day. Better water penetration and soil retention."

~ Britt Smith, Head Baseball Coach, Howard College, Big Spring, Texas

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

Reduction in Operating costs

"We reduced our wetting agent and fertility inputs by 25%, we reduced our hand watering, and we reduced the amount of water we needed to purchase from the Municipality by 15%. We have experienced substantial savings on our budget. Savings in water, savings in labor, savings in wetting agents and fertilizers.”

~ Dean Piller, Golf Course Superintendent, Vancouver Island, BC

Less dry spots

“We incorporated Magnation on our handwatering hoses this year and observed a remarkable improvement in infiltration rates and a significant reduction in localized dry spots. The results were instantaneous. I was skeptical about using them, but now I can say with confidence that Magnation does make a difference. #gamechanger”

~ Jason Hooper, Course Superintendent, Quilchena Golf & Countr y Club, B.C., Canada

Deeper roots and healthier turf

"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

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

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

Better Quality Turf

"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

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

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

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, 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Excellent Soil Chemistry & Lowered Soil Salinity

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

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 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

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

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.
