Specialities

Omnia Speciality products make the difference

Ten plants from the treated and ten plants from the control block right next to the treated area were analysed. The number of pods were counted and weighed after which the beans were removed from the pods and also counted and weighed.

The results can be seen in Table 1 and the difference between the treated and control beans is also clear from the photo.

The next step is for the Omnia Research and Development team to conduct statistical trials to test Nico's results for repeatability.
