Farming With Structured Water
- Category: Natural Action Articles
Ever since Clayton Nolte created the Structured Water Unit we have been wondering about all the ways this will make a difference in the world but one of the most impressive results using the Structured Water Unit has been founded by people who are farming with structured water. There are now small and large scale crop farmers, dairy farmer, pig farmers, chicken farmers and turkey farmers taking advantage of the benefits of Structured Water with the use of the Structured Water Unit. How impressive are the results? Very!
Here are some of the benefits we are starting to see:
- Bigger Crops
- Fast Maturing
- Less Water Used
- Lower Bills
- Better Tasting
- Healthier Animals
Farmers farming with structured water are saving thousands of dollars because the health of the animal is better and so they don't require the usual expensive doses of antibiotics. Along with this both small and large scale vegetable and fruit growers talk about improvements all around.
In one instance there was a dairy farm that had cows with e-coli. After the farm installed a Structured Water Unit and started hydrating their cows with the structured water the e-coli stopped showing up in the tests!

In 2010 the efficacy of Structured Water for Turkeys has been clearly displayed as a valuable
tool to increase profits to producers. Structured Units were set in place at Platte Colony in
Central S.D.. Flocks 76, 77, 78 and 79 were the historical flocks consisting of a total of 75,200
birds compared to flocks 80, 81, 82 and 83 on Structured Water consisting of a total of 75,200
birds. These birds were on Structured Water in the brooder, however, only flock 81 continued all
the way through finishing. Flocks 80, 82, and 83 were on Structured Water only 3 weeks in the
finisher due to moving units into other houses to compensate for the lack of units.
Crop Farming With Structured Water
In talking about the nutrient quality measured by a refractometer strawberry farmer Joe Johnson had this to say about a particular parcel where he farmed with structured water from a Structured Water Unit, "This is a plot that has been separated and only watered with structured water once so the one time that it was watered by structured water, this field has jumped by 20%." (Watch the video here)
At the Volga Research Institute in Russia which irrigates using magnetized water that they call "structured" the institute reported these production increases:
- 32% increase in Tomatoes
- 17% increase in Corn
- 28% increase in Winter Wheat
- 37% increase in Cucumbers
That's just some of the increases when farming with structured water. They also reported larger onions, radishes, corn and other vegetables.
Speaking of cucumbers, Roger Dagget used a Structured Water Unit with his Green House and had this to say about his results:
"So I continued to water on a daily basis with the structured water. We give it some compost tea and some other formulas once a week, the foliar feed with the structured water, and the cucumber got to a height of over 15 feet. From that cucumber plant I harvested in excess of 56 pounds of #1 cucumbers! This doesn't count the juicers that I took off of there that we just juiced because they didn't turn out perfect. So 56 pounds."
So what can you expect from watering with structured water?
- Expect to use 20-30% less water than usual (some people report 50% less)
- Crops will grower bigger
- Crops will have more nutrient value
- Ants may even exit your property (claims Roger Dagget)
- Fruit and nut trees mature sooner
This is just the beginning stages of what we are learning about the benefits of farming with structured water. Come back in the near future to find out what we discover next!
