CITRUS TREE TRIAL
WORM HIT BRICKS
Trial Group: Victorian Citrus Farms
Crop / Plant: Citrus
Location: Red Cliffs, Victoria
Plant Date: November 2017
Photo Date: March 2018
Test Product: Worm Hit Bricks
Application: ½ Brick (500g) per tree
Notes: The trial was conducted with the same soil conditions, tree spacing and watering levels.
The trial shows one full row of tree plantings at a spacing of 3m per tree. We worked our trial from the middle out. To the left we fertilised with our normal 10-14 day liquid fertiliser program which is run through a drip-fed irrigation system. To the right we fertilised with Worm Hit Bricks.
We used half a Worm Hit Brick (500g) per tree. We applied the brick at root level, placed beside the root ball. It was an easy application process. The same amount of water was applied to both of the rows.
The first notable difference was with the tree height and trunk calliper. The next notable difference was in foliage growth and tree density. The Worm Hit fed trees appear to be a year in growth ahead of the irrigated trees.
Should this trial have been for plant sales, the financial benefits would be of great impact.
"We strongly recommend Worm Hit Bricks to all of our growers for stronger, faster and healthier tree growth."
