Prevention Can Help Reduce Costs of Health Care

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
— Thomas Edison, 1902
Thomas Edison was a visionary who understood the value of self-reliance and personal dedication to one’s health. Eating properly and exercising were as important in his time as they are today.
Through the years, many people look for the silver bullet to cure their health issues. Conventional medicine keeps marketing new drugs as silver bullets, but do they really help? Increasing evidence shows that often those “silver bullets” can cause more problems and a spiral of other health issues. The Mayo Clinic recently published a report saying that 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. And the researchers said prescription drug spending will only increase in the future.

AGGRAND Growth Plot Study Underway for 2013

Growing crops or gardens of any size always puts the grower in a position to depend on the weather. Too much heat or cold, too much or too little rain can wreak havoc on commercial and residential crops and gardens. AGGRAND natural fertilizers are put through stringent testing each year as AGGRAND personnel work with the unpredictable weather patterns in Superior, Wis. Each year, growth plots are planted, documented and analyzed to develop long-term data of the effectiveness of AGGRAND formulations, as well as guidelines for research and development.

The 2012 growing season began with a flood, followed by drought conditions for much of the growing season. In last year’s analysis, AGGRAND fertilizers outperformed the competition.

“Unseasonably cold and wet weather this year resulted in low soil temperatures and delayed planting until the second week of June,” said AGGRAND Manager Richard Holappa. “However, recent warm and humid conditions, plus more than adequate rainfall, has seen the growth of the beans and corn taking off in all plots. The corn and beans in the AGGRAND plot are taller, greener, and more lush than the other two plots.

AGGRAND personnel will continue monitoring and sampling the plots throughout the season and the findings will be released in the annual Growth Plot Study next year.

The Cost Formulation Calculator, located on the AGGRAND Dealer Zone, is designed to provide Dealers with a quick and easy way to determine product cost and the amount of water necessary by selecting the total number of acres, the AGGRAND product applied, application rate and mix concentration. This tool allows Dealers to vary a number of these parameters to give customers a quick cost estimate, based on Dealer pricing, for applying AGGRAND products on crops.
