Demonstrated Benefits: Better vintage, lower cost, less fertilisers and chemical inputs, higher yield
OCC (ROCPA) was applied in conjunction with existing fertigation protocol in a vineyard in Palencia, Spain to assess its impact on general growth of vines - of Tempranillo variety. Dosage of fertilisers and chemicals were reduced by 30% on OCC plots. Control Plot with no OCC integration has full dosage of fertilisers and chemicals.
Results showed 25% more real output from OCC plot with potentially better “vintage” based on results of alcohol, ATT, pH and AFE. Same results were achieved in replication trial done in 2015.
Demonstrated Benefits: Faster and more uniform maturity, higher Grade A yield and earnings
OCC (ROCPA) were applied in conjunction with existing protocol in cherry tomato hydroponic greenhouse in Almeria, Spain hoping to achieve better maturity and higher Grade A yield for weekly shipments to UK. Prior to OCC integration, uneven maturity and rigorous requirement of weekly shipments led to approximate ratio of 80%
Grade A yield and 20% Grade B yield. Grade A yield requires stems with almost all the tomato in a uniform stage of ripeness. Green unripe tomato are to be taken off and allow to ripe in warehouse for local (grade B) sales.
Results: Ratio of Grade A rise to 95% of total weekly shipment with approximately 5% of Grade B yield with OCC.
Demonstrated Benefits: Longer growth cycle, cost savings, higher yield, higher income
OCC (ROCPA) were applied in conjunction with existing fertigation protocol on tomato in greenhouse farm in Almeria, Spain to assess impact on growth and yield.
Results: Every row of new plants produce 2x more tomato over untreated plants with robust growth and better immunity to stresses. Plants grew beyond normal productive cycle (4 months) and continue to produce at ~1.5x more productivity into 10th month of productive cycle even when leaves were turning yellow. Decoy tree, which normally would have wilted and infested with disease, also grew healthily and produce tomatoes at close to 1.5x per plant productivity.
Demonstrated Benefits: Higher nutritional value
OCC (ROCPA) was integrated into management protocol on buttered lettuce at aeroponic farm in Singapore. This was a key testament to OCC’s mode of action under a soil-less, medium-less, controlled environment whereby comparison is purely on nutrients mist with, and without OCC integration.
Results: Buttered lettuce with OCC integration displayed higher values in nutrition and energy content ranging from 0.9% to 48.5% more.
Demonstrated Benefits: Better immunity & quality, higher yield, higher income
R.OCF (ROC1K) were applied in conjunction with existing fertigation on Japanese Plum in a farm in Murcia, Spain known to have struggled against Sharka-Plum Pox Virus (PPV) to assess impact on growth and yield.
Results: Infected rate (wastage) on treated plots is less than 4% whilst untreated plots is more than 30%.
Demonstrated Benefits: Better quality attributes, more vibrant colours with longer lasting bloom.
R.OCF (ROC1K) were applied in conjunction with existing fertigation protocol in a zucchini farm in Spain during a season with onset of Tomato Leaf Curl New Delhi Virus (TolCNDV) which ravaged melon crops across Spain.
Results: Treated infected trees showed regeneration of leaves with new shoots and fruiting with no visible signs of the disease. Achieved normal growth and yield despite onset of the virus.
Demonstrated Benefits: Lower chemical cost with similar or higher output & productivity
OCC (ROCPA) were applied in conjunction with existing fertigation protocol in various cereal crops, as well as tomato in Spain to assess its efficacy in crop productivity under reduced herbicides and pesticides chemical conditions
Results: Treated crops showed similar or higher output and crop quality despite the reduction of herbicides and pesticides, illustrating the ability to reduce chemical usage with the integration of OCC, without impacting output to achieve cost savings.
