SUPERRRRR SONIC!

New breakthrough in the understanding of Plant Physiology and Sonic Frequencies can help you realize incredible yields from your personal garden and incredible financial yields if you are a commercial grower!

EDITOR’S NOTE: At times, we seem to go from amazement to amazement here at the Bio/Tech News. We find ourselves scratching our heads in wonder as we come across breakthrough after breakthrough after breakthrough. The subject of this issue is no exception, either. And, it not only can greatly and positively effect your health and well-being . . . it can help to fatten your pocketbook, as well. But before getting into our story, and before you turn the page to see one of the most incredible "home gardening" pictures you’ll ever see, take at look at these eye-popping statistics:

Vegetable and field crop yields increased by 20-100%

Cauliflowers so big that only four will fit in a box designed to carry twelve

Soybean plants producing up to 300 pods per plant (the norm is 30-35)

Calla lilies growing over six feet tall

Bell peppers bearing over 50 peppers per plant (instead of the normal 4-5)

Corn growing 16 feet high

Rose bushes yielding 67-70 flowers per bush (normal is 8-10 flowers)

Evergreen trees growing 3-4 feet annually

Orange production increasing by 66%, with 121% more Vitamin C than normal

Potatoes the size of one-liter bottles

500 tomatoes on single vines; tomato crop maturing 35 days sooner than normal;

roadside, fruit stand shelf-life twice as long as untreated plants

Ginseng harvest yielding 5,000 pounds per acre (state average is 1,300 lbs. per acre)

Cranberry bogs producing 209 barrels per acre (125 barrels is normal); 66% increase in size of cranberries

5-foot alfalfa with 100% increase in tonnage and an unbelievable 29% protein content which contributes to a 30% increase in milk production

Apple orchards exceeding 400 bushels per acre (state average is 290 per acre), yielding higher nutritional fruit quality, earlier maturity, and longer shelf life (five months instead of one month)

19,000 pounds of tomatoes from a 4,000 sq. ft. greenhouse facility which formerly averaged only one-half that amount

Concord grape vines having grapes with higher sugar levels almost 2 weeks earlier than any other grape crop in the area and yielding 150-170 buds per vine (former yields were 80-90 buds per vine)

300 bushels of corn per acre

Hardwood trees yielding an average yearly girth increase of 1.56" (500% higher growth rate than normal) and with better quality hardwood

Strawberry plants with an increased yield of 300%

Cucumber plants producing three times as many cucumbers as normal

African violets with 200 blossoms

Blueberries with a diameter of a nickel, ripening two weeks sooner

Chrysantheumum flowers doubling in quantity and maturing in four weeks

And, we could go on . . . and on . . . and on !

These are all documents examples of one of the most amazing, all-natural, agricultural breakthroughs which has occurred in the last 100 years. If you are a home-gardener, you can have the "greenest" thumb in your neighborhood. And, if you are a commercial grower, you can realize increased yields beyond your wildest imagination, and often with much shorter times to harvest! What’s more, you’ll not only get more to eat (or more to sell) because of higher yields, but your produce will also be far better to eat because of a much higher nutritional content.

From Tragedy to Triumph . . .

Our story actually begins sometime around 1962 in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea. Then Private Dan Carlson had been given this duty assignment sometime after his re-enlistment in the Army. At the time, he was pretty comfortable with the idea of making the Army a career, even if it meant having to spend every other day in a foxhole during a tour of duty in a country far away from his home in Minnesota. After all, no duty assignment is permanent. But then one day, as he was walking through a local village, something happened which forever changed the course of his life . . .

As he looked out into the dusty village street, he noticed a Korean mother placing her young son behind the wheels of a large military truck so that, as the truck backed up, the boy’s legs would be crushed. Carlson couldn’t get to the boy in time and, as his eyes met the eyes of the Korean woman, he was able to see in them a plea that he not tell anyone what she had done. Sometime later Carlson was to understand what was no doubt the reason for this desperate action on the mother’s part, which not only moved him to shed tears for them in their misery, but which also drove him to pursue a career which he had never before contemplated.

The reason this Korean woman purposely destroyed the legs of her son was so that he would be able to live. The way to make any kind of "sense" out of this apparently enigmatic statement is to understand that during the time Carlson was stationed there, approximately forty-five percent of the Koreans living in and around the DMZ starved to death because of a severe drought. One of the only ways to survive the harsh conditions was to beg for food. And, since the begging "competition" was so intense (many had been reduced to begging in order to try to find even a meager subsistence), the sympathy which would be evoked at the sight of a lame boy might give him an advantage in an attempt to secure enough food for his family to survive.

This terrible situation was more than Carlson could take. He determined then and there that he was going to give the rest of his life, if necessary, in order to do something which could help feed not only these desperate Koreans, but also those throughout the rest of the world who go to bed hungry. A lofty goal? You bet. Unachievable? Not so. We’re confident that what you are about to read will convince you that Dan Carlson is not only on to something remarkable, but that what he has discovered and developed might very well make the greatest contribution in history toward achieving the goal of feeding mankind . . . and that it is possible to do so within a generation! If he can pull this off, there aren’t enough Nobel prizes around to sufficiently honor the work of this former G.I. who let his heart be touched by the grief of a stranger he didn’t know and the tragedy of a young boy he would never see again.

When Carlson’s "time was up" after his second go-around with Uncle Sam, he took his honorable discharge and headed for the University of Minnesota, where he enrolled at the University’s Experimental College to begin studying plant breeding. His first objective was to see if he could develop some form of growth stimulant for plants so that greater yields might be realized. The product not only had to be low cost, but it also had to be low cost, but it also had to be effective for farmers and gardeners who worked for the poorest of soils. Rather than trying to get nutrients to the plant by having to rejuvenate the soil [In the long run, Carlson himself admits that soil remediation is the best answer, however, this would be a huge and expensive undertaking for many parts of the world, requiring not only a lot of materials and manpower, but also a tremendous amount of time – Ed. J. Carlson reasoned that it might be more effective to try a more direct route: using a method of foliar feeding where the nutrients and growth stimulants would be applied directly to the leaves of the plant.

It would be helpful here to point out that plants have many tiny openings on their leaves called stomata ["Stoma" means "mouth" in Greek – Ed.] The "stoma complex" is made up of two "guard cells" which surround the pore, or stoma. The guard cells have the ability to open and close the stoma. Although the number varies from plant to plant, stoma range between approximately 500-1000 per square inch of leaf surface area. It is through these microscopic stomata that plants exchange gases with their environment. They "inhale" carbon dioxide and "exhale" oxygen and water vapor, for example. As Carlson was to discover, they can also absorb nutrients.

It wasn’t long before he had come up with an organic foliar feeding solution which enabled him to get significant growth rates in about three out of every hundred different plants he tried. Carlson was on the right track; but the challenge was to find a way in which he could get a higher percentage of plants to "accept" his product. If he could only find a way to get the plants to "breathe" better, a way to stimulate the stomata into action, then he might have a higher rate of success.

And On That Note . . .

We now need to pick up and follow another thread of the story which ended up providing Carlson with the key he needed to unlock the "secret" of the stomata. Although it really goes way back to antiquity, we’ll pick it up in the 1950’s with the work of T.C. Singh [We’re grateful here for the reporting done on this subject by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird in two of their books, Secrets of the Soil (EarthPulse Press) and, The Secret Life of Plants (Harper & Row, Publishers). If you want more details on Carlson’s work and the history behind it, you will find these books to be quite informative – Ed.] Dr. Singh was head of the department of botany at Annamalai University in India. While conducting microscopic observations of live, streaming protoplasm in the cells of an Asian aquatic plant, he was urged by a visiting professor to see if the streaming process might possibly be affected by sound.

Knowing that plant protoplasm streaming begins to speed up shortly after sunrise, Singh placed an electrically-operated tuning fork six feet away from the plant and broadcast the note for a half hour prior to 6 a.m. What he noticed was that the sound apparently stimulated the protoplasm to stream at speeds which normally would not occur until much later in the day.

Singh’s next step was to ask a violinist to play while standing near the plants. At a certain pitch, the protoplasm streaming accelerated. One thing led to the next, until Dr. Singh was playing South Indian music to mimosas and found that after two weeks the number of stomata on the plant leaves had increased by 66%! Singh also soon discovered that the music apparently stimulated above average growth and rates of growth in balsam plants. It wasn’t long before he was playing music to all kinds of plants, including petunias, lilies, aster, onions, radishes, and sweet potatoes, to name a few. The music was played one-half hour per day and, according to Tompkins and Bird, was "scaled at a high pitch, with frequencies between one hundred and six hundred cycles per second." Singh’s published conclusion was that he had "proven beyond any shadow of doubt that harmonic sound waves affect the growth, flowering, fruiting, and seed-yields of plants."

In the late 1950s, a Canadian engineer by the name of Eugene Canby began broadcasting violin sonatas of J.S. Bach to a test plot of wheat and was excited to find 66% greater yields than average, as well as larger, heavier grain.

By the mid-1960s, work on the effect of ultrasonic frequencies, had been conducted in Russia, the United States and Canada. It had been discovered that these frequencies noticeably affected the germination and growth of a variety of plant seeds and seedlings, stimulating some species and inhibiting others.

Familiar with the work of Dr. Singh and others, Mary Measures and Pearl Weinberger, two Canadian researchers at the University of Ottawa, wondered whether, instead of ultrasonic frequencies, the use of audible frequencies might be effective in stimulating the growth of wheat.

Over a four year course of experimentation, Measures and Weinberger discovered that the plants seemed to respond best to a frequency of 5,000 cycles per second, which somehow caused accelerated growth and almost twice the yields. But, they didn’t know why . . .

As word of the effect of audible frequencies on plants continued to get out, researchers (some more "scientific" than others) from a number of different countries tried various kinds of experiments. One of the more controversial of these was Dorothy Retallack, who, in the late 1960s, started her series of experiments by playing the single notes B and D to some African Violets. From there, she played selections to her plants from various Classical composers on the one hand, and rock music selections from Led Zeppelin, Vanilla Fudge, and Jimi Hendrix on the other. In a nutshell, and as you may have already guessed, the plants, seemed to "prefer" the Classical music. So much so, that the plants grew toward the sounds of Classical music [Apparently, they "liked" the Bach the best! – Ed.], while growing away from the sounds of the rock music. Needless to say, Retallack’s work caused quite a stir, especially after the story was reported by various newspapers and other publications, culminating in a nationwide broadcast on the CBS News with Walter Cronkite, October 16, 1970.

One person who had heard about Retallack’s work and who had then recently learned of the Canadians’ research with wheat, was a retired dentist and avid horticulturist by the name of Dr. George Milstein. Milstein decided to see for himself how sounds would affect various kinds of plants. He was serious enough about his work that he sought the assistance of an NBC sound engineer in order to conduct his experiments. The upshot of his work was that when the plants were exposed to a continuous hum at the frequency of 3,000 cycles per second, growth was accelerated, even to the point where some of the plants bloomed as much as six months ahead of what would be a normal schedule.

Milstein later connected with Pip Records who agreed to let him make a record of the plant stimulating sounds. Rather than merely recording a monotonous long-play 3,000 cycle hum, Pip wanted the record to contain real music. So Milstein embedded his plant stimulating frequency in a recording of a popular musical selection [In case you don’t remember the album, it was called Growing Plants Successfully at Home; we don’t think it "went Platinum" as far as sales go, however! – Ed.] For best results, he recommended that the record be played daily.

Up to this point, a number of researchers had concluded that sound frequencies could and did have an effect on the growth and development of plants. However, and although there was no lack of speculation, the reason why sound affected plants remained still unexplained. Which brings us back to Dan Carlson . . .

Carlson, still wondering how he might find a way to stimulate plant stomata, serendipitously came across a copy of Milstein’s record. This set him thinking in a direction which eventually led to the answer he had been seeking: given the fact that some sound frequencies stimulate positive responses from plants, perhaps there might be a frequency, or frequencies, which would case the stomata to open. He was later to discover a combination of frequencies which in fact did just that. What happened next was quite a surprise . . .

Stomata-stimulating frequencies now in hand, Carlson collaborated with a Minneapolis music teacher by the name of Michael Holtz in order to produce a cassette tape in which the sounds would be embedded in a recording of popular music. Although he didn’t at first realize or even expect it, Carlson later discovered that his special frequency combination was something which was anything but unique to him. Within just seconds of hearing Carlson’s special sounds, Holtz’s trained ear immediately recognized the pitch to be a kind of sound he had heard many times before: Carlson’s frequencies turned out to be very similar to the frequencies and harmonics of birds as they sing their songs beginning just before the sun rises each day! According to authors Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird, "Dan Carlson had instinctively hit upon frequencies that were the ideal electronic analog for a bird choir.!

All of a sudden, it made perfect sense to Holtz. "It was thrilling to make that connection," he said. "God had created the birds for more than just freely flying about and warbling. Their very singing must somehow be intimately linked to the mysteries of seed germination and plant growth."

At that point, Carlson set about to confirm that his "bird frequencies" did in fact stimulate plant growth. One of his early experiments involved the purchase of a tropical Purple Passion vine, sometimes referred to as a "velvet plant." Taking his potted vine home with him, he began playing his "bird music" to the plant while he dabbed nutrient onto its leaves with a cotton swab. The plant started to respond. As the vine began to grow, Carlson started placing teacup hooks every six inches into his kitchen walls so that it could have needed support. The vine grew so fast that he had to hang hooks an additional three feet of length every week.

Over the course of three months, Carlson’s pet plant, which would normally be expected to have grown about 24 inches, had in fact grown a total of 150 feet! And it didn’t stop there, either. It continued growing at the same rate, forcing Carlson to drill a hole in the wall between his kitchen and living room in order to give the vine more room to roam. Carlson then strung wires back and forth along the ceiling, which supported the plant as it managed to grow to a length of about 600 feet by the end of the first year!

The next year, Carlson began selling "starts" to his vine at a local flea market. He cut off small shoots and placed them in plastic pots, which he would sell for $4 each. Four hundred of these young plant starts were sold, along with Carlson’s guarantee that he would replace any shoot that died. Carlson says he received a number of calls from people who bought the plants, but not because they had died, but because the plants were quickly growing to lengths of thirty, forty, fifty feet, and more.

Carlson ended up contacting the publishers of the Guinness Book of World Records, who sent representatives to Minnesota to verify his claims. After careful measurement and confirmation, Carlson’s 600 foot long pet Purple Passion vine was a World Record holder. The plant didn’t stop there either. It eventually grew to more than twice that length [almost one-quarter of a mile long! – Ed.] and when Carlson called the Guinness folks about the plant’s new achievement, they said they weren’t going to send anyone out that time; there was no reason to do so, since they were confident his original record would not be broken.

In addition to the rapid and extended growth, the Purple Passion plant bloomed more frequently than normal and some of the new leaves it put out were similar in shape and form to that of one of its "cousins," another vinous plant of the same genus. Evidently, Carlson’s combination of sound and foliar solution also affected the genetic makeup of the plant. So much so, that he later discovered his treatment method had a positive effect on the seeds’ potential, with the successive generation of plants often being 50% larger and more fruitful than their parents!

Two [Green] Thumbs Up!

Since those earlier days of experimentation and development, Carlson has had the pleasure of personally witnessing some amazing success stories from home-gardeners and commercial growers whose curiosity was piqued just enough that they decided to give his unorthodox methods a try. Space obviously won’t allow it here, but we could fill a book or two reporting on all the exciting accounts of extraordinary growth rates, hardier, healthier successive generations of plants, incredible produce yields, much-higher nutritional content, and better-tasting fruits and vegetables. ["These tomatoes taste just like those Aunt Emma used to grow back when I was a kid." If Carlson has heard this kind of comment once, he’s heard it a thousand times. – Ed.]

Limited space notwithstanding, we do want to tell you at least a few of these stories in order to give you a more concrete idea of how Carlson’s discoveries have the potential of fulfilling his dream of feeding the world. An amateur farmer from Mississippi immediately comes to mind . . .

When faced with the challenge of trying to grow fruits and vegetables on the poor soil where he lives, Ron Johnston found out about Carlson. He had been reading about the French "intensive method" of farming and had become acquainted with a farmer who had been using microbes with his soils. Johnston built himself some 8’ x 16’ garden boxes, ten inches in height, out of lumber he was able to scrounge from a sawmill. He filled them with two pickup loads of free sawdust and one load of sand. These components allow plenty of air and water to reach the plant roots, and the microbes play an essential role to insure proper nutrient uptake. Every morning, Johnston played Carlson’s "birdsounds" to his plants and once each week he would saturate their leaves with Carlson’s nutrient spray.

Johnston found that tomato plants, planted seven inches apart, produced 25-30 blossoms and yielded approximately 16 pounds of fruit per plant [With some tomatoes weighing in at a pound and a half! [ Ed.], totaling more than a thousand pounds of tomatoes from each garden box! Two hundred strawberry plants produced two hundred quarts of great tasting, highly-nutritious strawberries [By the way, Johnston realized these incredible yields during a period when there was no rain for six weeks and the daily high temperatures were running in excess of 100 degrees – Ed.] Johnston has concluded that a single box planted with beans has the capability of feeding a family of four for a year and that just one of his 8’ x 16’ boxes can produce as much as 800 cantaloupes. Not bad for a system which requires very little watering, no plowing, no cultivating, and little or no weeding!

Do you get the picture here? Despite terrible soil, despite low amounts of rainfall, despite tight living space, despite poor financial conditions . . . despite all of these things, and more, it is in fact possible for people living almost anywhere in the world to grow highly-productive gardens which can feed their own families and provide them with a surplus of health-giving, highly-nutritious food to either sell or give away to others.

"I used to get about 210 bushels an acre, says apple farmer Wilson Mills. "Now we get up to 450 bushels." The apples are also 90% packable [which means they are attractive enough to be sold to grocers to be displayed in their stores – Ed.], which is a great improvement on his former 50% packable level which he had prior to using Sonic Bloom [This is Carlson’s name for his unique Sonic/Nutrient system – Ed.] Mills also says the apples mature faster and he is able to pick some varieties as early as two weeks before his nearby competitors are able to do so.

Carlson claims that if he can get to fruit trees – any kind of fruit trees – to spray them at "petal tight" stage and "bouquet bloom" stage, the trees will set 4% [Normally, fruitgrowers hope for a 1-1/2% "set" (which is the term used to describe the percentage of blossoms which actually develop into fruit – Ed.] And, if he can then spray them three more times during the growing season, not only with the quantity of fruit be increased, but there will be a marked increase in the size of the fruit – up to two sizes – as well. Now, the really interesting thing is that, if you were to hang this increased quantity of larger fruit on a normal fruit tree, its bows would break from the weight. However, what Wilson found with his apples trees was that Sonic Bloom gave him a huge percentage increase in the amount of zinc and other trace elements in the tree limbs and bows, making them flexible enough to handle the abundance of fruit. And as for the apples, lab reports showed them as having a 400% increase in copper, 1,750% increase in zinc, 300% increase in chromium and 126% increase in potassium. These "healthier" apples were obviously better for eating; they also gave Wilson a shelf life of five months, instead of the usual 30 days.

Dr. Bryan Zins retired from his practice to a 32-acre farm where he raises 4,000 in Black Walnut trees. He has been treating the trees with Sonic Bloom since they were planted ten years ago. Untreated walnut trees the same age as Zins’ would be expected to have diameters of approximately 3 inches; however, Zins’ trees have grown to an average 9 inches in diameter. What’s more, they are bearing fruit trees ahead of schedule and the size is incredible. When is the last time you’ve seen a Black Walnut the size of an orange? With respect to his financial investment, Zins says "With walnut as a wood selling at about $1,000 per inch [This would be for an 18-inch diameter tree – Ed.], the growth of my trees last year alone was worth $4 million. These trees are better than a 401K plan."

The stories abound. Whether it be unbelievable yields; or strawberries, beans, and tomatoes growing well beyond their normal growing season; or, fruit trees and vines bearing an abundance for the first time in years; or, little or no pest or disease problems; or, superior-tasting fruits and vegetables . . . Like we said above, there’s just not enough room in a newsletter like this to tell you everything there is to tell.

But if you’re curious to know more, to "see for yourself," we suggest you get the video, "Seeing is Believing" from Josef’s Storhaus (see below). Although it is a collage of "home videos" and therefore doesn’t have the much sharper visual quality of professional, studio production films, you will still see more than enough to convince you beyond a shadow of a doubt that Carlson’s Sonic Bloom really works.

In addition to his ongoing research which he conducts on a 140 acre nut farm in Wisconsin [He calls himself the "head nut" – Ed.], Carlson is doing a rather large-scale project in the Third World in an attempt to make his point. He teamed up with Ian Allison and Eddie Albert of the Seed Corps [Remember Eddie Albert who played in the TV show "Green Acres"? The Seed Corps is an effort by Allison and Albert to help the world feed itself by distributing huge numbers of vegetables, herb and flower seeds – Ed.] and together they have shipped the equivalent of more than 625,000 packets of vegetable seeds to Indonesia [Retail value approximately $1.5 million dollars – Ed.], along with the necessary sonic frequency equipment and quantities of foliar nutrient solution to get the job done. In Indonesia, the government grows food on large government plantations, manned and operated by Indonesian soldiers. The plantations range anywhere between 65,000 and 100,000 acres in size. As you can see, this is no small venture for Carlson and the Seed Corps!

Think about this for a moment, though: If 50 packets of seed can produce over 4500 pounds of food using Carlson’s methods, then Ian Allison, Eddie Albert, and Dan Carlson have given the Indonesian people a gift with the potential of producing over 56,000,000 pounds of food in one season! What’s more, the seeds they donated were "open pollinated" [This means they are not from fragile, hybrid sources (hybrids don’t reproduce), but are organically grown seeds which produce plants yielding viable seeds which can be saved and used for the next planting season – Ed.] That being the case, this initial gift could multiply to over a billion pounds of food for Indonesia in just a very short time! All that needs to be done is to treat the plants, cuttings, and seeds with Carlson’s amazing Sonic Bloom.

Carlson’s "mission" is to convince the Indonesian government that their people can feed themselves by showing them how, with the use of his Sonic Bloom, any seed or cutting gets better than its parent, and faster. How open-pollinated seeds, which are more drought tolerant and stress resistant and higher in nutrient quality (though usually lower in yield) can not only keep those positive traits but also become higher yielding than hybrids. He is confident the Indonesians will see that their next generation of plants will be better than the first. He’s already proven this with corn seed in Mexico, beating agri-giant Cargill’s best yielding hybrids with his humble, open-pollinated varieties treated with Sonic Bloom.

Carlson’s hope is that, by implementing the use of his Sonic Bloom the children of not only Indonesia, but children all over the world, will be given the nutritional foundation to grow up healthy and with optimum mental acuity [Whether it be in the Third World or here in the U.S. any child who suffers malnutrition for the first eighteen months of his life will not have the full mental capabilities he could have had if he had only been given fully-nutritious food to eat . . . the kind of food Sonic Bloom can help to provide – Ed.].

Where to get Sonic Bloom

Whether it be a Third World farmer trying to eke out sustenance for his family from the poorest of soils; whether it be the commercial grower who is struggling to make ends meet as he works to bring his crops to market year after year; or, whether it be the home gardener who enjoys eating the fruit which comes from his special plot of earth . . . Carlson offers us all a way to benefit. Carlson’s Sonic Bloom combination of sound and all-natural foliar nutrients can help us all enjoy more of the produce of the ground, not only in the sense of quantity, but also quality, and we can begin doing so right now!

Both seeds and cuttings from plants will greatly benefit from Sonic Bloom treatments. Seeds can be soaked overnight in the nutrient solution while being "serenaded" by the "bird sounds" tape, for example. From seeds to harvest, applying Sonic Bloom according to directions helps to create stronger, more disease and pest resistant plants of all types and stimulates your plants to bear more and larger, highly-nutritious produce, regardless of the kind of crop you grow.

Sonic Bloom comes in various sizes and can be purchased from Josef’s Storhaus (Box 2849 – Caples Plaza; Vancouver, WA 98668. MC/Visa orders, call toll-free: 1-800-535-3587). The all-natural liquid nutrient concentrate (A proprietary blend which includes a special combination of seaweed, amino acids and trace minerals – Ed.] mixes in the ratio of one tablespoon per gallon of water. Six ounces of the concentrate will mix 12 gallons of spray, which should easily cover an acre of row crops [Trees will take a bit more – Ed.]. You will notice that a generous amount of nutrient concentrate is supplied with each kit described below, allowing the user to have multiple applications. Many home gardeners find that there is enough concentrate in the Home and Garden Kit to last them more than one season.

The Home and Garden Kit is ideal for you if you have a small garden, or live in a condo or apartment. It comes with a continuous, pre-recorded cassette tape with the Sonic Bloom audio-wave technology embedded in classical and other light musical arrangements, which stimulates plant growth in the ways mentioned in this Special Report. The kit also contains 16ounces of Sonic Bloom liquid, nutrient concentrate which makes 32 gallons of foliar spray when mixed as directed. As mentioned above, for the average size home garden, this should last you at least 1-2 years.

The price on the Home and Garden Kit is $69 plus $10 shipping/handling. Now you can have the technology you need to see remarkable improvements in the speed and quality of the growth of your flowers, decorative plants, fruits & vegetables, herbs, lawn, bushes, trees . . . or any other kind of plant you may choose to grow. Not only will you be able to impress your friends and neighbors with your "green thumb" as they witness the biggest and most beautiful flowers, fruits, and vegetables in your neighborhood . . . but you will also be able to enjoy some of the most nutritious, health-building fruits and vegetables to be found anywhere. And they will all come from your garden!

For an area from about ¼ acre up to 5 acres, you will need to get the Greenhouse and Small Garden Kit. This kit contains an indoor/outdoor speaker system, with an AC adapter, DC power supply cord [A heavy-duty car battery willpower this system for about 100 days before needing a re-charge – Ed.], and 1 gallon of Sonic Bloom liquid concentrate, which will mix up to 256 gallons of high-nutrition, foliar spray. The price of the Greenhouse and Small Farm Kit is $495.00 plus $25 shipping/handling.
