Rural Boss Independent Research Trials

The most significant independent testing of our Rural Boss product comes from trials run by Dr Gordon Rogers. Dr Rogers is the principal of Applied Horticultural Research (AHR) and an adjunct Professor of Horticultural Crop Physiology with the University of Sydney, Australia. He has a PhD in crop physiology, and 24 years’ experience in agronomy and crop physiology, with strong links to industry.

Dr. Gordon’s summary findings on trials he conducted across a broad spectrum of crops using Rural Boss are as follows.

Plant health is considerably improved with plants growing with greater vigour, remaining healthier and exhibiting enhanced capacity to resist pests and diseases without the need to apply protective substances.

Colour, taste and texture of produce grown with Rural Boss are considerably enhanced, with improved brix (sweetness and flavour of produce), firmness of flesh and better texture.

Production levels (Yields) are significantly improved, typically by 33-50% and in some cases by as much as 100% (bananas).

Harvesting periods during which plants bear crops of harvestable quality are improved by as much as 25%

Shelf life of products grown with Rural Boss is much improved with some crops showing an increase of up to 100% (broccoli) during normal storage.
