Ag Labs/Manzanita Farms Research Trial
Ag Laboratories and Manzanita Farms have teamed up for a research trial testing the effectiveness of AEA products on reducing disease pressure on strawberry plants. An important facet of the trial was testing whether the AEA program is an economically viable method for strawberry growers on a commercial level.

Initial Results of Manzanita Trial
A significant decrease in anthracnose was noted on the treated side versus the control. Overall root size was larger and plant health was increased. (see photos)
A yield increase of 17% within the first month of use, with an overall average yield increase of 12.5% was also noted.
"The test area, treated and untreated, turned out to be so highly infected that none of the blocks were successful as a crop. At the same time, I am encouraged that there seem to be positive effects on plant growth."
