“During the fall-winter of 2019-2020, we conducted a second trial using GroAloe at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus to determine whether they would stimulate the growth of tomatos in a greenhouse environment. The study was conducted from October 4 2019– January 9, 2020. Individual tomato seedlings were planted in one-gallon pots containing top-soil.
There were two experimental treatments (i. water control; ii. GroAloe). Both treatments were added to the soil on a weekly basis. There were 20 pots per treatment. Figs 1- 2 show the results after harvest of the plants. Tomato shoot (Fig. 1) and fruit (Fig. 2) biomass was significantly higher in the GroAloe treatment. GroAloe stimulated plant growth by 58% and fruit production by 51%.
Note that all plants were fertilized with a moderate 20-20-20 fertilizer once every two weeks. These results show that GroAloe is a plant growth stimulant under greenhouse conditions.”
