Feedback from Lin Yi in August

On the date 15th August, YANO team paid a return visiting for feedback data from the YANO Experiment Field in Lin Yi City, Shan Dong Province. This time we mainly visited the tomato planting field, unfortunately, local tomatoes were experiencing a disease disaster when we arrived Meng Yin County, a county in Lin Yi, which local farmers are making their living on planting vegetables and fruits. However, the good news came from this disease disaster is the tomatoes in YANO Experiment Field performed the superiority compared other planting.

Compared to the disaster tomato , we can see tomato in the YANO Experiment Field had showed a superior growing situation.

The experiment field was applicated with MicroKey and RootMag, about three months later, soil acidification has been improved and both the quality and single fruit weight also have been improved.

 Most important, in this local disease disaster, the experimented tomato showed a anti-stress ability.
