In 1994, researchers at the Navajo Agriculture Production Industry & New Mexico State University conducted a trial using Menefee Humate™ on potatoes in Farmington, New Mexico.
The trial consisted of two treatments. The first treatment, Control, was the grower’s standard fertility program. The second treatment, Menefee Humate, had 200 lbs per acre of Menefee Humate™ added at planting.
Treated rows experienced a 5% increase in yield with Menefee Humate™.
Rows treated with Menefee Humate™ were more resistant to fungal disease and grasshopper attacks.
