ICCRA Results of the Plant Analysis
Tolleson Arizona Formation

By Jeffrey Wilson, Director, ICCRA

(Short Version) On June 3, 2005, I received from Rod “Bearcloud” Berry a full set of plant samples taken from the Tolleson, Arizona “Randomly-Downed” Formation [RDF] event site. His set of samples was as well-collected and prepared as I’ve ever come across. Each sample stalk was labeled as to its origin, each sample set was bagged separately, and the control plants (from standing sections of crop) were kept completely separate from the flattened plants by cardboard within the shipping container.

Every sample set analyzed from the flattened plants had at least one stalk with an expulsion cavity, or as it is more commonly known, a “blown node”. No expulsion cavities were found in any of the “controls” (standing plants).

In simple terms, we have statistically proven that the nodes measured from the flattened plants collected from the randomly downed formation in Tolleson, Arizona were elongated as compared to the nodes measured from the control plants taken from the standing barley in the same field. We also pointed out examples of ‘expulsion cavities’ that were found only in the flattened plants – none from any of the standing controls. These characteristics (elongated nodes, expulsion cavities) are consistent with findings and node measurements done of plants in simple, single crop circles, complex geometric formations, and other ‘randomly-downed’ formations as noted by W.C. Levengood, Dr. Eltjo Hasselhoff, and others who have used the LNEAT method of measuring node elongation.

The Tolleson crops were flattened only in the ‘floodplain’ areas, in the same North-South orientation as the berms — and none of the crop located on the rows of berms (where the tramlines are located) was affected.

Perhaps the strong winds in this case served to just generate a strong static electrical charge in the plants, with the plants acting as a capacitor in storing the electricity, and creating a unique charge imbalance in the field between the plants and the artificially negatively-charged soil. Since we don’t yet understand the exact nature of the energy which interacts with plants to create crop circles, it might be possible in this case that the wind and flood-induced electrical charge imbalance has generated or attracted enough electrical plasma energy to cause the elongated nodes and expulsion cavities in this field in much the same way that geometric-type crop circles get their unique plant damage elsewhere. Since only this charge imbalance would exist in the ‘floodplain’ areas, induced artificially, only the plants in these areas would be affected – which is exactly what we see.


The farm manager, Mr. Johnson, would be right in saying that wind was responsible, but perhaps not in the way that is generally understood (e.g. the rushing air physically/mechanically pushing over the stalks). Mr. Johnson did remark in his interview that: “…we go through this every year. It’s just a timing thing. We have to fight the weather and wind every year because we don’t want the crop to go down. Sometimes we have to hold off on the irrigation for an extra two to three days in order to make the plants not go down because you don’t want to be running water when there is 30 to 40 mph wind. That will lay the whole field down if that’s the case.”

Ordinary ‘wind damage’ isn’t responsible for creating expulsion cavities and elongated nodes. And in the Tolleson event that is exactly what we have found, which leaves us with several possibilities as to how this type of damage was created. The first is the possibility that, under certain conditions, authentic energy effects might be generated by natural wind phenomena. The second is that energy from an unseen source might generate an atmospheric phenomenon perceived as wind as a by-product of its formative action. The third, (pair), is the possibility that an unseen source operates under the concealment of natural phenomena such as wind, or that it may actually direct a natural phenomenon to produce “unnatural” results.

The Mayville/Kekoskee, Wisconsin Formation of July 4th, 2003 has proved to be a pivotal case in which a complex, geometric formation that subsequently passed all scientific tests had been witnessed forming in daylight by Art Rantala during the presence of a violent weather front.

As we were in the process of finishing this paper, W.C. Levengood informed us that he had also received a set of samples of the Tolleson, Arizona event collected independently by Kathy Doore and Stephanie Phelps (labyrinthina.com). Levengood’s node elongation measurements have also proved to be positive for node elongation, and he too has found expulsion cavities in his samples. We look forward to seeing the final results.

Visiting the Fields

The crop was scheduled for harvesting the week of June 6th but for those in the Phoenix area still interested in visiting the area take Interstate I-10 to 75th Ave and head south to Tolleson. There are three fields with downed crop, the 3rd field is on the west side of 75th Ave about 1/2 mile north of Lower Buckeye Road; access is from a dirt road that runs in tandem with the irrigation ditch at a right angle to the highway. The other two fields are on Lower Buckeye between 71 Avenue and 67th Avenue, north side of street.
