When our products are sold with the roots intact, experience has shown that there are enough nutrients retained in the plant to enable continued growth when the roots are provided with fresh water.
Experience has shown that produce has an unrefrigerated shelf life of 2 weeks + when the roots are kept wet and intact.

4. CEMA JUICES
CEMA is short for Chlorophyll, Electrolyte, Mineral, Antioxidant. It is:
• A fresh vegetable juice with 27 minerals and no additives
• Dense, green, and the most powerful nutrient known
• Can be diluted with other juices for taste
• Taken as a drink, four to six ounces a day, and preferable fresh over frozen
Elemental and Bio Combined Minerals
Dietary minerals are available in two basic forms; elemental and biocombined.
Elemental forms are available in the diet as inorganic molecules (not combined with carbon); ex. calcium carbonate, magnesium sulfate. Elemental minerals are absorbed only up to 10% in digestion (unless converted into bio available forms by gut bacteria. Minerals are essential for good health and a healthy immune system which functions to combat infections and cancers.
Elemental forms are taken up by plant roots and combined with carbon molecules in the plant to form part of the living plant. These are the biocombined elements that we digest and absorb 100%. It’s the best way to ingest minerals.
We offer minerals in both forms. Elemental forms are powders similar to mineral pill supplements that can be used in blender mixes, hot cereals, cakes, muffins, soups, stews, etc. The intake is about 2 grams per day per person and is a low cost alternative to expensive supplements.
Biocombined forms of the 27 minerals we use in irrigation are found in all the crops we grow. It is also found in our juice drink, CEMA, which is short for Chlorophyll, Electrolyte, Mineral, Antioxidant.
- CEMA is a chlorophyll based juice, cold pressed, unpasteurized, and “alive” with 27 biocombined minerals
- refer to CEMA in this website for a wider description
- taken as 6-10 fluid ounces per day
- available as flavored, mineral enhanced, iron +
CEMA (Chlorophyll, Electrolyte, Mineral, Antioxidant) is made from the juices of the roots and greens of production crops. It is a combination of living nutrients, in dense form. The health giving benefits of these nutrients are documented and substantial. The components of CEMA are known to beneficial but we make no claim that CEMA itself can cure any disease because it would then become a drug, which it is not. CEMA is a food. CEMA is described in detail in available literature. The following is a short description of the known benefits of CEMA components.
- cholesterol, plaque and debris removal
- blood pressure can drop
- helps prevent heart disease and stroke
- 27 organically bound minerals are available
- replaces minerals which are lost daily
- minerals and omega 3 fatty acids aid in preventing adverse reactions to stress (PTSD); and aid in preventing depression
- stamina improves with oxygen delivery; red blood cells enhanced
- mental and sensory performance is aided
- weight control by delivering the right nutrients
- aids immune system and maintains healthy immune systems
- healthy immune systems eliminate disease causing microbes and cancer cells, and autoimmune diseases
We intend to produce variants of CEMA for high cholesterol and iron anemia.

5. LARGE ROOT CROPS (OR FIELD CHANNEL CROPS)
Field channels are steel channels 100' long and vary in width. They are irrigation channels in the field. They can grow a variety of crops with a relatively small amount of growing medium, or no medium at all. The irrigation water is recirculated in the channels. This results in field channels using less water and almost all the mineral fertilizers.
The channels are intended to be used year round for the cropping of different crops in open fields. Arable land is not required. The channels can be fitted with hoops on which polyethylene can be stretched for weather protection, or nets for insect protection. The hoop coverings are not intended to control temperature or humidity. This can be done in greenhouses.
Field channels can be used year round in climates that permit year round growing.
Large root crops would be grown in field channels, or in modified greenhouses. Environmental controls in modified, or hoop greenhouses, are not as concise as in the standard SG greenhouses. Typically these crops have a longer growing cycle, and are heavier than greenhouse crops. We demonstrated with squash crops, a 43% increase in yields over the average field grown crops, because we can grow up to 2 crops in the same period.
1. Starch crops and grains: taro, potatoes and yams, and grains such as rice
2. Trees and bush crops: Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, apples, citrus, palm, cocoa, teas and coffee
3. Vine: grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant
4. Melons and squash
5. Forage crops: alfalfa
6. PROPAGATION AND TISSUE CULTURE
Plants are propagated (multiplied) by seeds, cuttings, layering, grafts, divisions, and tissue culture. Most of our varieties are started from seeds, however the use of tissue culture will increase because the opportunities are profound.
Tissue culture is the established science and art of starting plants from tiny pieces of a living plant and growing it large enough to be transplanted for full growth.
The advantages of tissue culture are speed and reliability of reproduction. Tissue culture saves time compared to the preparation and daily care required by cuttings and seedlings
However, field conditions must be right (temperature, water, sunlight, soil condition) for transplanting tissue cultured plants (plantlets) – in other words the right season. Scheduling production to match the season can be a problem. Also, the chances of transplant survival in the field can be an expensive gamble, especially as the weather gets more unpredictable.
We will have our own tissue culture lab to grow millions of plantlets for transplanting. Our magnificent advantage is our ability to further grow plantlets in our climate controlled range nurseries and ranges. We have no seasons. The “Buzzard” biomass unit produces the heat and electricity to the tissue culture lab and ranges and keeps operating costs low. We can conceivably do forests, orchards, olive groves, fields of crops, and ranges full of nutriceuticals.
We will grow seed crops for our own supply and resale.
