Penn State University Research & Results
College of Agricultural Sciences (#1 rated in the USA) Conducted a Proprietary Study on Bent Grass over 4 Weeks
"When Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids was added together with urea (nitrogen source), both longest and average root length were greater compared to all other test section treatments."
Longest root was in the Gorton's Solution treated section and it was longer than all others and +22% longer than non-treated
Average (mean) root length in this treated section was also longer than all other sections and +17% longer than non-treated average
Extended research may show positive agronomic benefits from this increase in rooting as it relates to drought and other stresses during summer months
Texas A&M University Analysis
College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (ranks in Top 10 in the USA) Nutrient Data Analysis of the Penn State Study
Bent Grass from the proprietary 4 week Penn State study was sent directly to Texas A&M to perform a nutrient data analysis:
Urea (nitrogen source) plus water performed well versus water alone (Control); Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids performed even better; urea plus the Gorton's Solution product performed best in nutrient level uptakes
When supplied with urea and the Gorton's product, ALL nutrient levels in Bent Grass grew versus the Control
A plot with urea and the Gorton's product reached 1,240 ppm in iron levels with an overall average across all Gorton's test plots at 877 versus a normal range of 190 - 342
Gorton's test average almost doubled the iron levels of the Control average representing a +92% gain
Manganese, critical to chlorophyll production and other plant essentials, also topped the charts with a +71% level increase versus the Control
Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids works and incredibly well
Texas A&M University Analysis
College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (ranks in Top 10 in the USA) Analysis of Results on Lawn Turf Grasses
Texas A&M AgriLife analyzed results from an earlier controlled test and showed Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids:
Greatly increased protein levels in St. Augustine and Bermuda grasses v. control
Grasses maintained a fairly even balance of nutrients between test and control
One-time, single application treatments of GS with H&F showed good results ranging from +7% to +14% protein gains on test areas v. control areas
Weekly treatments showed even better successes with protein gains ranging from +13% in the St. Augustine to +59% in the Bermuda in just 3 applications.
The more applications, the higher the protein gain and overall health and growth of the grasses
Below is the actual picture of the St. Augustine grass in Dallas, in August, during the hottest month of the year
Caladium Bulbs Without Gorton's Solution Product
Stephen Gorton planted Caladium bulbs that were the same kind, size, growth time, soil conditions, and watering amount. The adjacent picture shows the dug up bulbs that were NOT TREATED with Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids.
Caladium Bulbs With Gorton's Solution Product
Stephen Gorton planted Caladium bulbs that were the same kind, size, growth time, soil conditions, and watering amount. The adjacent picture shows the dug up bulbs that WERE TREATED with Gorton's Solution with Humic & Fulvic Acids. Notice the considerable difference in root and tube growth and size. You be the judge!
