Controlled Environment Agriculture has exploded with demand for high grade sustainably grown produce year-round, and Coriphol meets those demands with increased yields, quality and profits for greenhouse growers.
Trials with Coriphol were conducted at The Farm at Brush Creek Ranch, a 5-star 30,000 acre resort ranch near Saratoga, Wyoming. They grow all the vegetables and herbs consumed by their guests and sold at their markets—in state-of-the-art greenhouse facilities without use of chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. That’s over 100,000 pounds grown organically and sustainably. Coriphol was integrated into their production methods to test if they could exceed their standards of excellence on all marks, raising their high bar on flavor, yield and marketability.
Hydroponic Lettuce Trials — Over 50% Yield Increase
From the Farm Team:
“We set out to determine whether Coriphol would have beneficial effects on plant growth and quality in our hydroponic program. Coriphol was injected into our hydroponic system at a rate of 1:1000 Coriphol along with our nutrient solution. The growth progress was monitored continuously and plant quality and over yield data were taken. After achieving full size, 16 heads were harvested from each treatment and weighed. Coriphol treatments astounded us! The average weight per head for the Control was 0.23 lbs. vs 0.36 lbs for Coriphol. That’s a 56% increase over the control!”
