Eddy Robichaud of J.B. Robichaud et Fils farm in the Shippagan region of New Brunswick is an ecological potato farmer. Mr. Robichaud agreed to carry out tests in collaboration with the Coastal Zone Research Institute in order to find ouoot what the effects of the Huplaso product were on the cultivation of potatoes.


Huplaso! That’s what they told me. Yes! The earth is a living organism, and it needs to be nourished. My little vegetable garden is strictly made up of dead leaves, Huplaso fertilizer, compost and a lot of love and water. I had a hypothesis that my garden would grow well because Huplaso is made of volcanic rock dust and is ecological and organic. From my research, I knew that powdered volcanic rocks produced an excellent fertilizer (vines in Italy near volcanoes).
During the first week, I only used Huplaso on my yellow beans and not on the green beanss. What a surprise when I saw that the yellow beans grew well before the green one which also showered a lack of energy. My hypothesis turned out to be correct. I then fed my green beans and other plants with Huplaso and they decided to grow vigorously.
Considering this adventure, I will only use Huplaso in the future because I believe in it and above all, I have seen the proof of the efficacity by the growth of the plants, the height of the plants (taller than me), the quality of the leaves, the strength of the plant during the rains and by the low apparition of parasites. As we can say, practice makes perfect, so I will continue to garden with Huplaso to become a good gardener.


I had two 10 x 10 foot plots. One was a control and the other had the Huplaso product. In each plot, I planted 20 lettuce seeds and 20 spinach seeds. Each plot received the same amount of water.

Very good results were observed in plots containing the Huplaso product. On average, the weight per plant was 23% higher. Spinach, on the other hand, was 37.3% heavier while spinach and lettuce were on average 1.5 times taller than plants in the other plot.

Plants that were fed with Huplaso were generally healthier than others and had more resistance to pests.


In the first months, I did not see the difference between my vegetables that received basalt and the others. I then realized that the basalt had to do its job with the mycorrhizae in order to reach the plants.

The more summer went on, the more I saw changes. Among the changes, I noticed that I had a lot more tomatoes on my plants. The cabbages, leeks, turnips, peppers and onions were getting big and in addition, my carrots with the Huplaso product were not attacked by the carrot fly unlike the others. My harvest was better.

The yield was higher despite the times of drought. I managed to ripen all the tomatoes and peppers on the plants. It’s a first! 


Eugene Goin, owner of Modesto Farms, has tried the Huplaso product and verified its effectiveness by testing it on tomato plants. He had three plants: one without the product, one with a low dose and one with a high dose. He explains his experience, the differences observed between the plants as well as the positive effects of Huplaso (color, roots, leaves and others).
