(In pic above) The left side has 10 ears picked from a neighbors field. They were planted approximately April 15th, 2010 and have a final stand of roughly 30K (3 samples). The leaf samples are from the ear leaf and are a pale green color with large dead and diseased areas showing. The leaves are also somewhat firm and brittle, the one on the far left is folding into a “V” shape and they are all very dry. All of the ears are showing severe stunting and major “tip back”. The butt of the ears are deformed, pollination was not uniform, most cobbs are hooking, and test weight will most likely be lower than normal. This is a corn/corn field and I would figure the Nitrogen applied to be 150 lbs. or more, some of it was fall applied. P & K ???? This corn is probably 10’ tall and standing well so far but some stalk deterioration is showing up now. The field is virtually weed free, there is nothing else living out there, the corn is dying and not producing much sugar at this time.
The right side of the picture has 9 ears picked from a field of mine that is in the second year of transitioning to organic production. This field was planted on May 22nd, 2010 at 31K with a final stand of 27K. The corn is an organic variety from Blue River Hybrids so there was no captan seed treatment. That is why the later planting date, needing warm soils for a fast emergence. This corn emerged in 4-5 days and was never stunted from cold and damp soils. Cost for this seed was approximately $60.00/acre. The leaf samples are from the ear leaf and show very little disease and have a rich green color to them. They are soft in texture and supple, still very much alive not hard and dry. When holding the leaves they move and flow, there are very few dead spots in these leaves and disease is low. The ears are tipped back and could have filled better, however they filled what they have very well with straight rows of kernels. The butts are squared off and the ears are straight without hooking the cobbs. Pollination for the most part seemed to go pretty well here. This corn is between 9-10 feet tall and standing well. It is following soybeans and the ground was pretty mellow, the field was cultivated twice in the summer. The fertility was 10 gallons per acre of liquid fish, which is a 2-4-0.5-1Ca product, and 20 gallons per acre of composted liquid manure. Also in the summer a foliar azotobacter was applied to attach to the plant and fix nitrogen from the atmosphere for the plant. The fish and compost were split applied between a pre-plant broadcast application, 2×2 application with the planter, and foliar sprays with the azotobacter product. The company that makes the azotobacter claims that it could possibly fix up to 50 lbs. of N per season. At this time I am planning to make 1 more foliar application to this field since the corn kernels are still filling. Even though the number of kernels is fixed we can still influence the test weight of the kernels thus adding yield to the crop. There are a few escape weeds in the field, but it looks like it will yield better than the other field discussed here. The corn in this field is still alive and producing sugars.
The picture below was taken on July 10th, 2010 in the organically grown field described above.
John, INDIANA says his Kentucky grower ran out of NutriTech & fish and noted 6” less hay growth. His corn starter included Bioplin and lots of rain followed. The yellow is gone and green is back. “I’ve used this fish for more than 30 years and I know the fish alone would not have done that”. Thanks to Bioplin and NutriTech for increase in growth and improving the quality.
Kent in IOWA reports using NutriTech with fish and some of his manure pit water on corn. “The corn turned a John Deere green rather than the dark black green of my neighbors”. He also foliar feed fish and NutriFoliar (N fixing for foliage) on a water stressed field on a Thursday night (then received 3” more of rain on Friday and Saturday) and the corn greened up on Sunday and Monday. Corn looks great! More foliars to come.

“When we planted StoneWell Vineyard in the spring of 2000, like other growers, we began a chemical fertilization program both through our
drip irrigation system, and by broadcasting 10-10-10 granules.
In researching sustainable agriculture regarding grape growing, we found that annual repeated applications of chemical fertilizers lead to the sterilization of the soil, prohibiting natural soil borne microorganisms from supplying sufficient nutrients to the root system, thereby making vines dependent on expensive chemicals for a consistent yield.
After an introduction to BioNatural Products, we decided instead to promote soil health with their low cost organic Bioplin and NutriTech products beginning in 2005. Our vines improved and flourished, and yields of the highest quality organic grapes continue to increase. Last year’s crop of 2007 enjoyed a 45% increase of grapes over the previous ’06 growing season, after using less than suggested dosage amounts of Bioplin and NutriTech to the soil. “
"I began with a ground application of Bioplin… Problem with my vine grapes was that they were not up taking micro nutrients from the soil. This caused mid season clorosis and early defoliation in the crown of the vine. This problem went away using BioNatural products. Also fruit seemed to ripen more evenly and the yield was up by 50%. I believe this was due to improved fruit set. Berry size on one variety was up by 40%. The overall health of the vines was greatly improved."
I applied NutriFoliar and fish to some very yellow Triticale. It greened up almost immediately. It was more than the fish because I have used that fish for 30 years and I can tell the difference. I can hardly keep the product in stock mainly because Word-of-mouth. I applied NutriFoliar and fish to some very yellow Triticale. It greened up almost immediately.

I have used the products for 5 years (June 10, 2009). I have stopped using other fertilizers. I like the soil conditioning job Bioplin & NutriTech do & I rely completely on NutriFoliar for feeding the crop. Byron B.
Vegetables & Produce:
Mark, an international consultant in MAINE an organic garlic grower put N fixing Bioplin on his garlic in 2009. Mark grows organic garlic and sells his garlic by the pound. When the garlic bulb produces a scape (seed head) the grower removes the scape by cutting it off. At this point the garlic bulb usually dies within 3 weeks.
Mark has found that by treating his field with Bioplin he was able to obtain 1 extra week of growth. This is a 33% increase in growth time and he sells his garlic by the pound. He said, “This season looks very good so far (June 9, 2010), strong plants which were inoculated with Bioplin as a dip. Seed was pre treated with Bioplin and floated for culling.”
We used your products on our cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce and cabbage. We have noticed a big difference with improved produce quality and increase in yields with healthy plants. We will use this product again as we didn’t have to use any other chemicals or pesticides. Thank you for introducing these products. Jerry
Flowering & House Plants:
I have been meaning to email you for months to let you know how much I love your products. I used it on all my outdoor plants and, wow,what dramatic results!
The blueberry bush that has been whimpishly growing for the past 2 years without any fruit sprouted right up and doubled in size. It even produced some fruit. i have seen a great improvement in my Meyer lemon as well. Leda W from CALIFORNIA
Orchids: Just wanted to let you know that after using NutriFoliar on my house plants within a week after my 2nd applicationI finally got a bloom off my Dendrobium that hasn’t flowered in over 18 month. Amy P
Annuals: This is 1st season I’ve started to use your products in our greenhouse on annuals and mums and we are very happy with the quality of growth. The plants look very healthy and are larger in size as compared to the ones without your products. We will expand to use your products on other plants in our greenhouse. Thanks for your continued support. Courtney W, TEXAS
