Brookside Agra Launches H2OExcel Micro-Site

Brookside Agra has launched an H2OExcel micro-site ( featuring its new microbiology animated video, research library and other useful information about its natural, proprietary water conservation agent H2OExcel.

H2OExcel is a proprietary blend of desert plant extracts and high-quality, humic acid-containing biologicals and other natural, non-plant derived nutrient enhancers. The unique chemistry in H2OExcel works to support the dynamic shift in the way modern farming practices have been conducted, and brings to the grower the following benefits: water and input reductions, healthier soils, reduced disease pressure and increased yields. H2OExcel is tank-mix compatible with fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and mixes easily in cold water.

Features of the new H2OExcel micro-site include:

New H2OExcel Animated Video

The H2OExcel micro-site features a new, animated video that illustrates the importance of microbiology in soil health and crop production, and demonstrates how H2OExcel works naturally to supercharge biological activity within the soil and defends against plant disease and dehydration.

H2OExcel Data and Research Library

Visitors to the site can click on the data/research tab to read the results of multiple, independent research studies and field trials conducted on H2OExcel. They will view detailed results of a 2015 Washington County, IL Alfalfa Field Trial; 2013 Purdue University Turf Study; 2013 University of Central Missouri Tomato Plant Study; 2013 University of Central Missouri Soybean Study; and 2016 Corn and Soybean Field Trials in Illinois and Missouri.

H2OExcel Application Rates

Brookside Agra has made using H2OExcel simple by providing visitors to the site with comprehensive, downloadable application rates for corn, soybeans, wheat, milo, canola, cotton, turf grass, vegetable crops, citrus trees and potted plants, as well as for use as a digester after harvest and for hydroseeding.

"We put all of the information that you would ever want to know about H2OExcel into one convenient online location," said Tony Arro, director of sales - specialty products at Brookside Agra. "The new animated video is particularly helpful in understanding how H2OExcel works to naturally promote beneficial microbes and bacteria in the soil to help boost crop production."
