Indian organic fertilizer stimulates vegetables and flowers (Willem)

My Indian correspondent Yogesh PATEL has sent a sample of an Indian organic fertilizer. My friends of the Allotment Gardens Park Slotenkouter in B9040 ST. AMANDSBERG (GHENT, Belgium) have set up a number of small trials in which it was clearly shown that this organic fertilizer has a very positive effect on plant growth (vegetables and flowers).

Here are a number of pictures taken today, June 19th, 2008. One can compare with earlier postings on this blog and on

2008-07-19 : Garden of Anne-Marie ROGIERS – Trial on dwarf beans – Left : 2 rows of beans planted earlier – Center : 1 row of control plants (smaller, yellowish) – Right : 1 row of treated beans (somewhat taller and greener).

2008-07-19 : Garden of André D’HOOGHE – Trial on 2 rows of leek plants – Foreground : First meter : treated plants – Background : untreated (control). Small benefit 2 weeks after treatment.

2008-07-19 : Garden of Eddy – Trial on Pelargonium pots. Plants were in very bad condition before treatment. Remarkable change in a short period : plants started flowering luxuriously.

2008-07-19 : Garden of André ROMBAUT – Trial on endives (broadleaved plants in the center) – Foreground (first half of the 2 rows) : treated endives much taller and leaves broader. Background : untreated endives (control) smaller and leaves narrower. Observation : the Tagetes plants, left of the treated endives, and the carrot plants, right of the treated endives at the foreground also profited from Yogesh PATEL’s fertilizer, growing remarkably taller than the control plants at the background.

2008-07-19 : Garden of André ROMBAUT – Central part of the picture : Trial on small beans – Foreground : treated beans (significantly taller, having more flowers) – Background : untreated beans smaller, with less flowers. Difference in production of beans will be measured later.
