HOMEODYNAMIC AGRICULTURE: RESULTS IN CONDITIONS OF WATER SCARCITY

EUREKA

From April to November 2012 pepper variety "Eppo F1" was grown in a polytunnel. The aim was to assess whether the homeodynamic method could offer a viable alternative to standard organics, measured as yield under conditions of reduced water availability.

The trial suggests that the homeodynamic method of agriculture is able to produce significantly higher yields than the same plants grown with the traditional organic method, even in conditions of restricted water supply.

It is interesting to observe the difference in fruit yield of homeodynamicly treated seeds between 50% 75% irrigation rates. Here the difference is minimal (-4%). From this we can hypothesise that the contribution of the seed-bath "S06-Antisiccità" on growth and productivity of the plant, is roughly equivalent to 25% of water supply. In other words, the data derived from this trial suggests that the contribution of the seed-bath “S06-Antisiccità” allows the plant to live in drought conditions as if it were receiving 25% more actual water.
