Treated pea seeds with Rezfree diluted 2 ml rezfree in 250 ml water
Soaked for 1 minute, dried planted
May 24, 2020
Customer shared a comparison picture of seeds
Treated seeds appeared to be significantly larger (approx. 1 ½ time the size of the non treated seeds)
Treated bean seeds with Rezfree at 10 am – At about 3 pm he noticed one seed sprouting, and 3 more seeds opening up. He has never seen this before. After dipping the seeds in Rezfree, he set them on a table to dry. When he returned in the afternoon, the area was completely dry, and he noticed the results mentioned above.

Did a site visit today
Our grower is very impressed with his onion crop! He was worried about the onions when he transplanted them. The entire crop had root rot, in which the soil was too cold and essentially the plants had lost their roots entirely. He treated the plants with RezFree when transplanting, and He was quoted as saying, “I have never had onions like this in the 6 years I have been planting them in this garden”.
This customer is happy with all of his treated plants. Seemed to be excited with his potatoes
We compared the roots on his beans, which he began treating as seeds. It appeared that there was approximately 20% better root structure on the Rezfree treated roots in the plants we compared.
He is also using RezFree on 3 different types of trees. All 3 seem to be showing better results with RezFree.
Onions were hit last night with a heavy frost. We recommended using a solution with a mix ratio of 10 mil RezFree in 2 litres of water as a recovery treatment
Potatoes – Harvested approximately 1 week early with notably uniform vegetables
Onions – RezFree was used after the frost. All of the plants made a full recovery, and produced a strong harvest
Peas/Beans – We did not receive any feedback on these crops. They were harvested unsupervised, not allowing for comparison
