John Kempf is an Amish agronomist who advises and services farmers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and other states.
John Kempf says "Every farmer needs to use Sea-Crop."
John Kempf supervised the following applications of Sea-Crop in 2008:
Apples ~ 40 acres 3 gallons of Sea-Crop per acre as a foliar spray.
Result: Healthier trees and increased the color and sugar content.
Crucifers ~ 100 acres 4 gallons Sea-Crop per acre.
Result: Crisper leaves, better shelf life, increased harvest by 10%.
Corn ~ 2,000 acres 2 gallons Sea-Crop per acre in the furrow.
Result: Made plants stronger and increased yield by 10%.
Popcorn ~ 200 acres 2 gallons Sea-Crop per acre in the furrow with a microbial inoculant.
Result: The neighbor across the road on the same type of soil planted the same variety of popcorn. The neighbor used 200 pounds of nitrogen to the acre and the Sea-Crop farmer used 40 pounds of nitrogen. The Sea-Crop treated popcorn gave a 40% greater yield using 80% less fertilizer. The Sea-Crop treated field was ready for harvest 20 days earlier than the conventionally treated field.
Cucumbers ~ 300 acres 2 gallons Sea-Crop per acre split foliar application.
Result: Made plants healthier and decreased problems.
Forage ~ 2,000 acres 2 gallons Sea-Crop per acre.
Result: The sugar content of the forage increased by 20% and the yield increased by 10%.
Alfalfa ~ 2,000 acres 3 gallons Sea-Crop per acre.
Result: The yield increased by 15%.
Lettuce ~ 10 acres 4 gallons Sea-Crop per acre split application.
Result: Increased crispness, flavor and shelf life.
Melons: ~ 200 acres 6 gallons Sea-Crop per acre split 4 drip and 2 foliar.
Result: Improved root structure, decreased some problems by a factor of 5, melons were larger, the brix readings were 15% to 20% higher and the yields were increased by 10% to 40%.
Peaches ~ 10 acres 2 gallons of Sea-Crop per acre split foliar application.
Result: Increased color, increased brix, greater size and a 10% greater yield.
Pears ~ 10 acres 3 gallons Sea-Crop per acre split foliar application.

Bossy Knows Best
In 2007 a dairy farmer in Vermont treated part of his fields with Sea-Crop. He said that whenever the cows were turned into the Sea-Crop treated fields to graze, the butterfat content of their milk would increase noticeably.
In 2008 a farmer in the Midwest did a test with a four acre hay field. Sea-Crop was used on one half of the field and the other half received only normal fertilization. Later in the season cattle were turned lose into the field. The cows ate the forage in the Sea-Crop treated portion of the field down to the ground before they moved over to graze on the conventionally treated half of the field. In this case the greener grass that the cows preferred was not on the other side of the fence.
In 2008 a certified organic dairy farm in the Midwest treated their hay fields with Sea-Crop. During the winter, when the dairy cows were fed on the dried hay from those fields, they ate from 25% to 30% less hay than normal because their hunger was more readily satisfied with the nutrient dense fodder. The farmer stated that he has a lot more hay left in the barn than is normal for this late in the winter.
Sea-Crop Treated Strawberries: A Personal Trial by Lawrence Mayhew
Last year, when John Kempf told me that he was using Sea-Crop with great success, I was surprised, because I thought all sea minerals were the same, specifically just a lot of salt (sodium chloride). A couple of years ago, when sea salts seemed to be all the rage, I was involved in one informal field trial where a very popular sea salt product was evaluated. The trial confirmed my opinion that a great deal of caution should be exercised when applying sea salts because the concentration of sodium and chlorine are very high, thus limiting their usefulness.
The first disappointment with the sea salt product trial was that it did not have all of the nutritional elements that were claimed by the owners of the product. The best way to determine the total elemental make-up of material is to submit a sample to a certified lab for geochemical analysis. Not all labs are capable of geochemical analysis, so we send them to a lab in Canada that specializes in serving the mining industry, where accuracy is extremely important. The geochemical analysis detected only 30 out of the claimed 90 elements.
When evaluating a material, we look for the most complex materials available. Natural materials that have higher micro, trace and ultra trace elements tend to be more effective in biological soil systems. The owner of the Sea-Crop mineral concentrate just happened to use the same lab we use, so the analysis was easily interpreted. The geochemical analysis was very impressive.
The analysis revealed that Sea-Crop has very low concentrations of sodium and chlorine, while magnesium, sulfur, potassium, carbon, calcium, boron, iodine, iron, silicon and selenium, just to name a few of the over 70 elements detected, were predominant. That is not sea salt!
The carbon really got my attention. Come to find out, the microbial biomass in the Pacific Ocean where the Sea-Crop concentrate is derived is approximately two and half times greater than the biomass in biologically active soils. Not only is that astonishing, it means that a lot of complex organic matter must be released into the ocean, and it is very similar to the organic substances released by microbial activity in soils.
The manufacturer of Sea-Crop uses a patented process that preserves the organic matter fraction of the sea water while reducing the sodium and chlorine content and concentrating the minerals that are found in the ocean waters around the Willappa Bay of Washington state. This pristine part of the Pacific Ocean is one of the worlds most biologically diverse and productive areas.
Armed with that new information, I decided to apply Sea-Crop on numerous vegetables, ornamentals and fruit trees this spring around my house in Wisconsin. Much to my surprise, the results were obvious. In my experiences with numerous products over the years, it is extremely rare to see obvious results from the application of a product. I saw positive responses on almost everything that was treated with the Sea-Crop.
The photos of the strawberries are an example of what happened. The first photo shows some strawberries approaching the ripening stage. The second photo shows the treated strawberries, which doesn't seem too exciting at first glance unless you realize that not only are the Sea-Crop treated berries ripening sooner than the untreated, they are the second crop, while the unripe berries are only yielding their first crop.
It's always rewarding to get more yield, but it is even more exciting to realized that anyone eating these berries will be getting the benefit of numerous trace and ultra trace elements that are known to enhance the body's natural ability to ward off most of the common illnesses of our society, especially cancer.
The other photos reveal that the Sea-Crop worked on red cabbage and broccoli as well. The treated cabbage matured about one week earlier and had more numerous and larger leaves. I'm really looking forward to the results on our apple and pear trees that have been treated. So far, we are seeing that the pears are staying on the trees, whereas in other years without Sea-Crop, most of the pears would have dropped by now.
Photos on left are untreated.

I have been growing Yellow Finnish Potatoes for over thirty years. After several years of disappointing production I noticed my plants were dying prematurely around the first part of August every year resulting in low tonnage and small potatoes.
I decided to use Sea-Crop along with my normal fertilizer program. I sprayed Sea-Crop in the furrow at 1/2 gallon per acre when planting and then sprayed four gallons foliar feed when plants were around a foot tall. I then irrigated the final application at four gallons per acre at bloom.
What was most obvious was how lush and vigorous the plants maintained throughout the growing season. Upon harvesting, the overall size and uniformity of the potatoes was exceptional. I also saw an increase in tonnage of twenty five percent. I'm a firm believer that this product improved my potato crop and it will be a regular part of my farming practices

Having spent years gardening in the extreme climates and poor soils of the Great Basin and the coastal Pacific Northwest, I've never seen any product perform like this especially when used as a foliar application on any plant. During the early winter of 2011 on the coastal Pacific Northwest, I have plants that are still alive and green that otherwise would have melted away after three weeks of below freezing temps at times below 20F. This despite the pummeling rain.
During the 2011 growing season, spraying lawn and pasture with 2% or 1% solution monthly, the tilth in the upper 6 inches of the pottery quality, jello like clay soil has exploded in richness in just one season.
During this past growing season, it was observed that after 2 to 3 days from a foliar application, significant and visible vegetative growth and greening of plants occurred. I spray it on everything including the lawn and pasture to improve the overall health of the entire property, not just food gardens and the orchard. Using the lawn clippings as mulch and compost material, the Sea-Crop nutrified biomass aids the microorganisms in the composting process.
Other applications include spraying seeds prior to planting, root dips when transplanting, spraying compost piles as they are being turned, adding to compost tea formulas and spraying mycelia mats and plugged logs in the winter when running mycelium.
My animals all get it in their water and feed whether it is added directly to the feed, water or available from the plants I grow for animal consumption. I have yet to have any mortality in my rabbit herd (50+) or duck flock. The manures from these animals will contain minute levels of trace minerals thus aiding the biological processes in the compost or as in the case of rabbit manure when applied directly to the soil. Even the cats and honey bees get Sea-Crop. In reality, it can be used as a trace mineral supplement for anything that lives. It is used when making kombucha, wine, bread and yogurt to improve the bacterial and yeast functions as the trace minerals and sea water derived carbon organics improve their ability to do what they do.
In my view, Sea-Crop is an incredible value, more so than any other amendment. For the backyard gardener, a gallon can go a very long way at 1% solution in a one gallon pump sprayer. This same gardener can apply it to the lawn, ornamental plants to produce more flowers and lush vegetation, house plants, pet food supplement and use in cooking where live cultures apply. There is simply no other product in any form that has the same breadth of application and performance as Sea-Crop. My only complaint is that I did not find it earlier! Many thanks to the inventor of this outstanding product.
