Agricultural fertilizer and pesticide applications

Cocoa

Cocoa

Cocoa, also called Cacao (Theobroma cacao) is a tropical evergreen tree (family Malvaceae) grown for its edible seeds. The scientific name means “food of the gods” in Greek. Native to lowland rainforests of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins, cocoa is grown commercially in the New World tropics as well as western Africa and tropical Asia. Its seeds, called cocoa beans, are processed into cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and chocolate.

Fruit Set

Fruit Set

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®

Cytokin® is a plant- based EPA registered plant growth regulator designed to increase crop production efficiency.

Flower Abortion

Flower Abortion

Flower producing is an integral part to the development of a healthy crop. For a robust harvest to occur, a healthy and significant flowering must occur for fertilization. Boron and zinc are critical nutrients necessary for flowering. When nutrients are not available or are deficient in the soil, the abortion of flower buds can occur as the plant tries to preserve nutrients. Boro Zinc™ supplements these critical micronutrients necessary for health and productive flowering.

Miller Boro Zinc™

Miller Boro Zinc 10-10 is a highly soluble specialty fertilizer.

Witch’s Broom

Witch’s Broom

Witch’s Broom, a fungal disease caused by Moniliophthora perniciosa, can lead to severe yield losses that range from 50-90 percent. Symptoms can include necrosis and death of infected tissue, among others. Recommendations for control, in addition to cultural practices, are the utilization of contact-based fungicides. The addition of Nu-Film-P® to these applications has the potential to increase deposition, coverage and retention of applications made. This maximizes the potential conditions for efficacy.

Nu-Film-P®

Nu-Film-P® is a superior deposition, spreader, and sticker adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene®.

Anthracnose

Anthracnose

Anthracnose is a disease caused by several different but very similar types of fungi. This disease favors high humidity and spores can be spread by splashing water. By combining a contact residual fungicide, such as chlorothalonil, with Nu-Film-P®, this fungicide is protected and held in place with our proprietary Pinolene® technology. This soft, thin film will also help to create a physical barrier against new spores that may land.
