MARION TÉTÉGAN SIMON
COASTAL ZONE RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Ms. Marion Tétégan Simon, Dre in soil sciences, is the Scientific Director of the Peatlands, Soils and Sustainable Development component at the Coastal Zones Research Institute. It was through collaboration with her that we were able to quantify the positive effects of Huplaso on crops.
Huplaso was compared to a control for the greenhouse experiment. Regarding the performance analysis, it was compared to 4 different competitors products. For each substrate created, the growth of the tomato plant was monitored in the greenhouse.
The experiment took place in a commercial potato field. We harvested 40 potato seeds for each of the treatments to measure and compare performance.
Greenhouse experiments on radish were carried out to verify the agricultural potential of Huplaso as an amendment. During the growth of plants, several parameters were observed on a weekly basis: height, number of leaves, chlorophyll rate, diameter, weight as well as the harvest score.
