Dryland Crops Varieties
Organic Crop Nutrient Study:
MontanaGrow is proud to be working together with the Quinn Organic Research Center, and Montana State University Department of Agriculture to develop soil amendment applications that boost crop production and improve resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. This 20 acre project focuses on detailed nutrient management studies conducted on a series of dry land rotational crops including Kamut Khorasan Wheat, Safflower, Buckwheat, Austrian Winter Peas, Hay Barley/Clover, and Feed Barley/Alfalfa. MontanaGrow natural fertilizer is being applied in varying doses throughout this multi-year study to view the impacts on plant vigor, yield, pest and fungus control, and the final chemistry composition of processed grains.
USDA Commercial Hops Production Study:
Together with Flathead Valley Community College, Cenex Harvest States, Algae Aqua-Culture Technology and Glacier Hops Ranch in Whitefish, MT we are proving if hops can be grown commercially in Montana. MontanaGrow is now in the 3rd year of a 5 year USDA Commercial Hops Production Study to prove which hops variety will grow best in the northern latitudes that will also will be preferred by the craft brewing industry. A total of 41 hops varieties from around the world are being grown with 14 of these being studied intensely. Researchers at Flathead Valley Community College in Montana, Laval University in Quebec Canada and Louisiana State University are focused on hops oil production, silicon uptake and the uptake of other essential elements.
MontanaGrow was the first all natural silicon fertilizer to register in America. We are forging a new trail in amorphous silicon science, therefore building a foundation of research more than a library at this point in time. This said, we will share what we have and thank our partners.
Researchers have found applications of MontanaGrow increases biomass and essential nutrient uptake in wheat. From lab studies at LSU to USDA Hops field trials, MontanaGrow continues to expand amorphous silicon crop research. This includes a first-of-its-kind Montana organic dryland crop research center testing nine organic crops at the Quinn Organic Research Center.
