An Open Letter from the Chief Scientist

Chewie and me 2020 (3).jpeg

First, a little background:

Here's what triggered the discovery of the SNX30 fertilizer supplement as a quick and simple to use input for the best fertilizer ROI (return on investment) with less fertilizer and more yield

It all starts off with a little-known story about how Big Ag and Big Chem combined forces to prevent the spread of a crop protection and yield increasing phenomenon for farmers. Three men (Upton, Armstrong, Knuth) developed this method over 70 years ago to reduce/eliminate crop pests without the use of chemicals and also increase yield.


Beginning in 1949 the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau ordered their Research Department to make a thorough investigation of Curtis Upton’s discovery and ag experiments. Upton was the son of Thomas Edison's assistant.


After a year of tests, the Farm Bureau made a contract with him and his associates for the exclusive use of their process in Pennsylvania. Many tests and trials continued and were documented by the Farm Bureau.


Three years later there was even more impressive evidence that Upton’s process produced results. By this time a number of farms in Pennsylvania had been treated to control pests and increase yield without chemicals. 


Of course, this was excellent news for farmers, for ecologists and for those who are concerned about food production for an expanding world population. But it was bad news for the chemical and fertilizer industries. They soon heard about this strange threat to their profits, as enthusiastic farmers spread the good news from using this service.


As word spread, the chemical and fertilizer industries became increasingly worried. Their representatives did their best to laugh off the new process and discourage farmers from trying it. When that didn’t work, chemical and fertilizer companies were forced to try another method.


It’s been told that pressure from agriculture organizations and chemical companies set off a negative public relations program through farm co-ops and other groups against Upton and his associates, preventing them from enlisting farmers for their service. This negative public relations program worked well and that’s why farmers today haven’t had the opportunity to take advantage of this wonderful science -- until now with SNX30

Hi, my name is Lee Roberts...

We’re always impressed by the effort successful farmers are willing to put out on applications and inputs, rates and machinery to try and increase yield or reduce cost.

SNX30 rolled back fertilizer cost over 70% while yielding 15 bpa more bushels.

Farmers who first used SNX30 were leery because it seemed too good to be true, but after using SNX30 realize it works better than described. One farmer even told me, "It almost feels like cheating." SNX30 belongs to the newest family of inputs based on energy (cheaper/safer).


Fertilizer prices nearly doubled or even tripled in some areas in 2022. Even though input prices have dropped in 2023, you never know which way they're headed. You know that fertilizer prices are tied to commodity prices and it's tough to get a break. Without SNX30, what have you done about it?


Since our NCGA Corn Yield Winners and other farmers have proven that SNX30 works for them, you may want to see how well it works for you too. Months or years from now you don't want to kick yourself after losing out on the pre-season profit that SNX30 can offer you.

Maybe a little more background will help…


After discovering this little-known science in 1984, that Upton used decades earlier, the idea for SmartNute’s SNX30 came to me but I had neither the time nor money to pursue it. Like most people, I was too busy earning a living to think of much else. But, years later in 2014 the time was right to begin developing SNX30, so I jumped right in and built two labs and 14 test plots.


It took over 9 years and 35,000+ hours to develop the newest SNX30 formula working non-stop 12-14 hours daily, while building the team of independent engineers, farmers, researchers, agronomists, crop consultants, data aggregation experts and inventors to bring SNX30 to you.


At first, it was challenging to get farmer buy-in due to the nature of SNX30 and the unheard-of benefits it offers for farmers and our environment. But now SNX30 has already proven to deliver more than expected.

Thanks to farmers...

Thanks to farmers and growers already using SNX30, we are constantly experimenting and learning new benefits that SNX30 brings to the table not only to help farmers reduce fertilizer cost and grow healthier crops, but also to help balance our ecosystem, reduce toxic groundwater, keep farmers ahead of government mandates and make their lives a little easier. 


Earlier in my life, my interests began focusing on giving back to our planet in a big way since I’d spent my life taking from it. And, years later in 2014 it all started coming together. Since you most likely have a dream and goal too in making a difference, you can connect to what I'm about to say. “Don’t ever give up on your dream and make sure it’s a whopper!”  


Now you can learn what farmers from 21 states and 20 countries worldwide already know. We look forward to you joining our team too. It can be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made for the farm. We want you, we need you, but more important you need us. Review the links above and come join our team too! NEW for Fall: DIY quick and simple to use seed and dry fertilizer treatments with SNX30 -- no liquid mess as with other treatments.

Best of Agriculture 4.0 – Farmers are already reducing fertilizer use over 70% plus increasing yield with this supplement. It’s backed by a growing number of agronomists and NCGA Corn Yield Winners. No special machinery or modifications required.
