Pumpkin Study | Holtwood, PA


A research farm in Holtwood, PA tested their standard pumpkin fertilizer program*, against that program — with the inclusion of two rates of granular AZOMITE® on Gladiator Pumpkins. All fertilizer was broadcast on the plots three weeks after planting in early July. There were four replications of the three treatments, in 15 X 50 foot (750 sq ft) no-till plots on this working production farm. Yields were collected and weighed and the return on investment calculated based on current market prices ($100/35 count bin). Click image or download study for in-depth results »

• The 300 lb/ac rate of AZOMITE® showed a 72 pumpkin per acre yield increase — resulting in a $60 increased net profit per acre.
