Peas (Pisum sativum), also called garden pea, are an herbaceous annual plant in the family Fabaceae. Grown virtually worldwide for their edible seeds, peas can be bought fresh, canned, or frozen. Dried peas are a common ingredient used in soups. Minnesota, Washington, Wisconsin, Oregon, and New York are the top producing US states.
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.
Specialized Legume Nutrition
During the season, the translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. Microplex® provides a well-rounded mix of micronutrients to address numerous plant functions occurring during critical growth stages. By delivering more than just one micronutrient, balanced interactions between nutrients within the plant are maintained and the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies or “hidden hunger” can be potentially achieved.
Microplex® is a chelated EDTA blend of eight micronutrients designed for maximum plant response in foliar or soil applications.
