Dr. Loraine Bailey, FCSA, FASA, FAIC, is a retired scientist, formerly with Agriculture Canada, now the principal of Eco-Agronomy Consultant of Brandon, Manitoba. The following are selected, unsolicited quotes from his various writings about our technology:
"But for the heat and drought we would have a tremendous test. However, we have agronomy test data to show that the exhaust stimulated soil nutrient release and uptake by both canola and wheat."
"The exhaust treatment definitely had a positive effect on crop growth and rate of development - this was also observed in the vigor of both crops."
"...it appears that the exhaust resulted in significant release of soil N and/or stimulated the crops to take up soil N. There were also small increases in the uptake of P, K, and S on the exhaust treatments that may be due to the function of the exhaust on the soil. Slight shifts in the amount of some micro-nutrients taken up by the crops were also observed."
"The Fusarium and Midge data indicate that the Control and Exhaust Only treatments may have an advantage over the fertilizer treatments."
"...the obvious conclusion is that the exhaust had a positive effect on crop growth, yield, and quality, and may have positively enhanced soil nutrients and nutrient chemistry."
"The system also has the advantage of sequestering carbon in the soil as opposed to releasing it into the air where it becomes an environmental pollutant."
"N/C [Quest Inc.] Technology has the potential of significantly reducing the amount of CO2 and NOx released into the atmosphere by farming operations. The net effect will be to reduce the impact of greenhouse gases on accelerating climate change - a global positive - improve soil quality and productivity, reduce inputs of inorganic fertilizers and other crop protection products with minimal or no effect on crop yield and quality, [and] improve on-farm cash flow, thus improving the socio-economic well-being of the rural population."
"The direct effect of the technology is to reduce the amount of crop input products yet maintaining crop yield and quality, [resulting in] reduced cost of input, improved cash flow and profit margins for producers, improved competitiveness of ...farmers in the marketplace, and improved purchasing power of the rural population, thus improving their quality of life, etc."
"The net effect is to reduce the rate of Climate Change by reducing the release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere - a Canadian and global objective."
