Papaya (Carica papaya), also called papaw or pawpaw, is a succulent fruit of a large plant of the family Caricaceae. Though its origin is rather obscure, the papaya may represent the fusion of two or more species of Carica native to Mexico and Central America. Today, it is cultivated throughout the tropical world and into the warmest parts of the subtropics.
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.
Phytophthora, from the Greek root words meaning “plant destroyer”, in various forms can present numerous management challenges. Belonging to a genus of plant damaging oomycetes, Phytophthora symptoms can vary greatly. A commonly observed issue is root rot however, which can present significant challenges during water stress periods. Containing both phosphate and phosphite forms of phosphorus, Greenstim® can assist in the potential control of Phytophthora. Phosphite has been shown to increase the plants ability to guard against the disease and symptoms. In addition, Greenstim provides a wide range of abiotic stress prevention ingredients. This reduction of plant stress creates conditions necessary for increased overall plant production.
Greenstim® 2-8-14 is a proprietary liquid fertilizer combined with plant betaines.
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. 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.
Nu-Film-P® is a superior deposition, spreader, and sticker adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene®.
