Paul Tranfield's Project

half-sprayed tree

Paul Tranfield of Victoria, Australia shared this photograph with us. He said that he sprayed Johnson-Su compost tea in one particular paddock on his property but could only get around one side of this Chestnut tree because of low hanging branches. He noticed earlier growth by about a month where he had sprayed. Turn around areas that received more spray on his property were grazed more heavily. Places where he did not spray were left ungrazed.

The following photo shows that fruit from the side of the tree sprayed with BEAM (on the right) is twice as large as fruit from the  other side of the tree (on the left).

Fruit from both sides of the tree. The one from the side treated with BEAM is twice as large.
