Easily recognizable by their acidic and sour taste, lemons and limes are most successfully grown in warm, tropical, or semi-tropical areas. Nutritionally, lemons and limes are nearly identical. Limes tend to be more bitter and acidic while lemons have sweeter acidic flavor notes.
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.
Environmental or abiotic stress has the potential to negatively impact plant health, productivity, crop quality and yield. With the unique formulation of Fertigard®, these abiotic stressors can be potentially mitigated via a multifaceted approach to plant health. Water retention, overall plant metabolism, as well as general plant recovery can be improved with the addition of Fertigard®. By managing abiotic stress effects, yield losses can be minimized. The best effects are observed when applied prior to stressful conditions.
Fertigard™ 2-41-27 is a unique blend that contains soluble phosphate and phosphite for crops that experience plant stress during key physiological periods and demand superior efficiency and response.
Cold weather poses several serious threats to plant tissues that are not adapted to survive it for long periods of time. Vapor Gard® can assist in the mitigation of some cold weather effects, such as desiccation. Once applied, Vapor Gard forms a thin, microscopic film over the plant surface. This helps to lock in moisture and assists in the prevention of cold desiccation effects on sensitive plant tissue.
Vapor Gard® anti-transpirant and anti-desiccant is a Pinolene® terpene polymer based product for use on specialty crops as a full-coverage spray to reduce water evapotranspiration.
