MEMPHIS, Tenn. (September 18, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — FBSciences, Inc., a global life science leader in natural plant health technologies, is pleased to announce the findings of a two-year agricultural research and trial program in Malawi as part of the Clinton Foundation and Salida Capital Foundation Partnership for Sustainable Development in Africa. Over the two-year average, the soybean seed treatment trials saw a 30% average yield increase (+US$418 per hectare), the maize seed treatment a 30% average yield increase (+US$189 per hectare), and the maize fertilizer enhancement trials yielded an average increase of 37% (+US$187 per hectare)i. The results were significant in their implications for Malawi, one of the 20 poorest nations where 40 percent of the population lives on less than one dollar per day (US$350/year). For local farmers and their families, these yields translate to double the average annual income of the average Malawi farmer.
