  • A sugarcane farm in Santa Cruz, Jamaica experienced a 20% yield increase when using Agrarius™ on their crops.
  • Utilizing two applications of Agrarius™ the farm saw crop height as high as 45cm over the trial window.
  • The farm also saw improvements in overall growth efficiency, an essential metric for long-term sustainability.


Sugarcane is a critically important agricultural commodity that serves as the backbone for several industries worldwide, from the production of sugar and ethanol to the creation of biofuels and other bioproducts. However, sugarcane farmers often face a multitude of challenges that hinder the crop's yield and overall productivity. This case study aims to examine how a sugar cane farm in Santa Cruz, Jamaica, successfully increased its yields by a minimum of 20% per crop cycle through the implementation of Agrarius, an innovative plant signaling technology.

The Problem: Low Yields and Operational Inefficiencies

Appleton Estates was struggling with suboptimal yields, averaging at just 80 tons per hectare. These disappointing numbers were a major concern, as they directly impacted the farm's revenue and overall efficiency. The challenges were compounded by several factors:

  1. Weather Conditions: Being a tropical crop, sugarcane is highly susceptible to fluctuations in weather, including inconsistent rainfall and temperature changes.
  2. Pests and Diseases: The crop often fell victim to various pests and diseases, affecting its health and, consequently, its yield.
  3. Resource Utilization: The farm was using a significant amount of fertilizer, which not only added to the operational costs but also had environmental implications.

The farm manager was on a quest to find a comprehensive solution that could address these issues and enhance the overall operational efficiency.

The Solution: Agrarius Mycelial Network Signaling Technology

After thorough research and assessment, the farm manager decided to implement Agrarius, a ground-breaking technology that utilizes mycelial network signaling to improve plant communication. The technology aimed to achieve two primary objectives:

  1. Increase Yields: Agrarius technology is designed to tap into the plant’s communication network, thereby triggering significant increases in yield.
  2. Reduce Fertilizer Usage: The technology also aims to make the plant more nutrient-efficient, thereby reducing the need for excessive fertilizer application.

Results: Significant Yield Improvements and Efficient Resource Utilization

Post-implementation of Agrarius, the farm experienced remarkable improvements:

  1. Yield Increase: A minimum 20% increase in yields was observed. The crops reached heights as high as 45 cm during the trial period.
  2. Crop Health: The overall health of the sugarcane crops improved noticeably, suggesting better resistance to pests and diseases.
  3. Efficiency: The farm also saw improvements in overall growth efficiency, an essential metric for long-term sustainability.

Treatment Data

  • Control Group: Average Height 30.6 cm
  • Agrarius Treated Group: 2 NM/Lt water, Average Height 45 cm (2 Applications)


By adopting Agrarius technology, the farm not only significantly increased its sugarcane yields but also improved crop health and resource utilization. This case study serves as a testament to the transformative power of innovative agricultural technologies and their potential to solve complex challenges in the farming sector.
