For the last 25 years food prices have risen at 2 %-3 % per year. Drought, oil, increasingly scarce farmland and growing world population all affect grocery prices. So while wages stagnate, food costs increase.

Is it possible to grow more food at a lower cost?

Innovative Crop Solutions (ICS) holds great promise to increase plant production for lower costs. It works to make nutrients more bio-available to plants. “This is not genetic modification. These are not GMO plants,” says Corey Park, CEO of ICS. “Rather the technology helps regulate nutrient uptake and photosynthesis. It simply adjusts the organic intake of the plants.”

This novel approach to plant production is reaping amazing results. Seeds germinate faster, grow lusher, and yield per plant increases by up to 100 %! Researchers saw 42 % more ears per corn plant and 25 % more pods per soybean plant.

The technology has been tested in the lab and on plants in a greenhouse setting. Lab tests proved seeds germinated faster and more of the seeds germinated. Treated soybean seeds sprouted at double the rate of the control seeds after just three days. 25 % more corn seeds sprouted in just
six days.

INNOVATIVE CROP SOLUTIONS TECHNOLOGY INCREASED PLANT YIELD 63–100%

Innovative Crop Solutions proprietary technology remarkably increases plant germination, growth, and yield. Studies showed the following flowering improvements:

25% more soy pods per plant

42% more corn ears per plant

100% more tomatoes per plant

Greater Production per Plant Saves Money

Faster germination means a better start on growth. More germination means farmers need fewer seeds — a savings to them… and ultimately to the consumer.

But the big savings come in improved production from the same plant. Greenhouse tests showed the robust plants flowered more, produced more seeds, and those seeds weighted more than the control group. The plants treated with ICS’s formula grew 89 % more corn per bushel and 63 % more soybeans per bushel!

Farmers have the potential of doing the same amount of work, but gaining 63 % to 89 % more yield to show for it! Imagine the cost savings that could come to the consumer. This increased crop production could compensate for drought or other devastations of nature. It could reduce the impact of cities encroaching on valuable farmland.

And it could mean better food for your table at a cheaper price.

Innovative Crop Solution can be used as a seed coating or as a solution included in the watering system. The next step for ICS is to conduct field testing. They are currently seeking industry partners to assist with that testing.

While it’s not yet available for public distribution, it’s good to know innovation may bring down your grocery bill.
