After talking with happy farmers who had used 'Silica Max' and "Etherics 1000' to enhance their winter grass growth I thought it was time I tried it. I never did any scientific comparing or testing but rather chose to spray the whole farm in Autumn so as to maximise grass growth. After completing a feed assessment I theoretically should have been short of feed over winter / spring. Instead we arrived at calving time with cows that had put on condition, some considerably, and enough grass to feed the cows through spring along with some supplement. It was easy to apply and I'll definitely be using it annually from now on. Thank you BdMax. (46)
The application of BDMax Etherics 1000 in the late Autumn and then followed up with Silica Max in early Spring has given us the ability to tweek the effects of challenging weather influences on our Dairy Farm. This has resulted in us seeing more even grazing patterns as well as more contented stock on what seems less quantity of grass. We have a liquid fertiliser spray programme in place and providing there is an opportunity where spraying conditions are practical , this fits sensibly into this. We do not necessarily apply to the whole farm, as weather conditions change, but find great value in having a tool to use when the need is there. (46)

Notes and Academic Papers
Just wanted to share my happiness about getting my soil to life again. ... Not just that this soil produced a really thick crop without any artificial N ( my neighborfarmers are not able to produce such a crop with 140pounds N per acre), but our whole home and garden is changing since I am regularly using E1000. In fact I sprayed in march 4 times every 7 days with some other minerals, humates, sugar, everytime with some thing I just felt would make sense. I am curious how humus will develop! But the reals obvious thing is that our place is just developing faster to the better. At a stroke I see growing herbs and clover growing on parts of our property where the soil was without life. More wildlife is happening... insects, hedgehogs, and yesterday I saw the first time a ring snake in the grass. (posted: June 30, 2012) (58)

Trials were carried out on organic Dairy Effluent: 1) Raw Effluent, 2) Stirred, 3) Stirred with compost innoculant added, 4) Etherics 1000 added after the compost trial. Trial 4 over the raw effluent showed: 2.4 x the N, 2.7 x the P, 7 x the Ca, 2.4 x the Mg Increases in trial 4 over trial 3 were: 1 x more N, 1 x more P, 3 x more Ca, .7 x more Mg More details (46)
