Crop: Potatoes

Location: Uasin Gishu County

Season: October 2018

“I started using Lentera’s CropNutrient fertilizer solutions in October 2018. Within four weeks, we had seen increased vigor at the vegetative state of potato crops which indicates the tubers are expanding well. We used Lentera’s Organic Phosphate planting fertilizer as well as Silicon Foliar Fertilizer as a follow on fertilizer. We were able to increase our yield from an average of 35 bags per acre to 65 bags per acre in the treated plot compared to the part of the farm where we used conventional fertilizers”

Crop: Coffee

Location: Nyeri County, Kenya

Season: June 2018 to January 2019

“My husband introduced me to CropNutrient Silicon Fertilizer after a trade show in Karatina, Nyeri county. We started using the foliar fertilizer in April and we have never looked back. It all started with the flowering. After two applications of Silicon before the flowering season, we saw a flowering result that we have not seen in many years and our neighbours were asking us what we had done. The result was a beautiful cherry crop and we increased yield from 7kg per tree in the 2017 2018 season to 12kg per tree in the 2018 2019 season.”

Crop: Tomatoes

Location: Kajiado County

Season: 2019

I started using CropNutrient Silicon Foliar Fertilizer on my irrigated tomatoes at the beginning of 2019. I was pleasantly surprised after transplanting the crop from the nursery and it kept its vigor without showing signs of transplanting stress. My crop also saw less pests and diseases saving me some money. I harvested 200kg more per acre compared to the previous season.
