Cranberries have long been a staple of North American diets. Today, cranberries are grown extensively in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Oregon. The plant is typically cultivated on acidic soils of peat or vegetable mold with a surface layer of sand. The American cranberry (V. macrocarpon) is one of the most commercially significant species. They can be round, oblong or pear shaped and vary greatly in color from pink to dark red and can even be mottled red and white.
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.
