Avocado (Persea americana), are part of the plant family Lauraceae. Another name for Avocado is the alligator pear. Native to the western hemisphere, this flowering tree is known to have elliptic or egg-shaped leaves. This fruit is technically a berry that creates one large round seed with two cotyledons. The berries can vary in size; the smallest are about the size of an egg and the largest can reach up to 4 pounds. This fruit is grown commercially in Florida, California, Hawaii, South Africa, South America, and Australia.
Fruit set is categorized as the critical transition period shortly after fertilization as plant processes switch over to fruit formation and growth. A successful fruit set is integral to a healthy crop at harvest. This process can be improved with the addition of Cytokin® at key timings. Cytokin® contains plant growth hormones responsible for cell division, cell enlargement, and various other plant growth functions. The nature-based plant growth regulator effects help to maximize conditions necessary for fruit set and early fruit development.
Cytokin® is a plant- based EPA registered plant growth regulator designed to increase crop production efficiency.
Residual Pesticide Applications
Environmental pests come in a wide range of forms, from diseases, to insects, to invasive weeds. The methods for controlling these pests vary as well. Some solutions require a pesticide to remain active and in contact with the leaf surface for an extended period of time for best results. Nu-Film-P® is an organic compliant adjuvant that is uniquely formulated to be combined with pesticides requiring residual activity on the leaf or fruit surface. These include contact or ingestion-based pesticides that have direct activity on the target pests.
Nu-Film® P is a superior deposition, spreader, and sticker adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene®.
