Gentile Lettuce - Greenhouse Tests
Also the tests performed in a confined environment where Gentile lettuce is produced confirmed the positive action OverGround exerts on the entire production process, and more specifically:
treated with OverGround
|Greenhouses 322 sq. m||973,35 Kg||1142,29 Kg|
|Greenhouses 530 sq. m||1659,24 Kg*||1734,68 Kg*|
At harvest we consider the intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics of the product such as turgor, the content of dry matter, nitrates, vitamin C and antioxidasic activity, intensity and brightness of the colour of the leaf blade and its length to width ratio.
The analyses confirm the higher content of nutritional substances and a lesser presence of harmful residues..
Assessments on the visual, organoleptic and weight loss plane
In any case the difference between the two samples of lettuce is immediate.
The lettuce treated with OverGround respects a harmonious ratio and development of the form linked to the need of living beings to increase the "according to nature" in the best and less expensive way.
The control does not have any of this.
What is noteworthy are the characteristics of the quantitative-qualitative aspects and the shelf life of the vegetables, including the nutritional substances
Two 5-kg cases, one treated with OverGround and one untreated, were stored in a refrigerator.
Five days later a weight loss of 500 g was observed in the untreated case, while no weight loss was found in the one treated with OverGround.
