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

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

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

Saving 80,000 gallons of water per night

"During one of the driest and hottest seasons on record, we ended up saving an average 80,000 gallons of water per night … that’s 2.4 million gallons of water over the course of a month.”

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

Better Penetration in WASCO, CA

"Better water penetration."

~ Ben Schroeder, Almond grower, Wasco, 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

Water & Energy Savings

We had electrical savings, and our wells with the Magnation systems didn't run out like the wells without the Magnation system.

~ Tom Law, Cold Springs, TX

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

Better Grass Density

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 

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

Faster & More Coverage

With Drift Control, I am able to cover more acres per hour with less drift. Due to high winds in Nebraska, we need to utilize every drop of water we spray. Before using Magnation, I was only able to spray 81 acres per hour going 6 mph, using 15-16 psi. Now, with Drift Control, I'm covering 105 acres per hour going 10 mph, using 45-50 psi.

~ Scott Borman, Schuyler, NE

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

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

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.
