Comprehensive non-phosphite foliar program on walnuts demonstrates substantial economic yield increases in three years in a row on fully replicated trial compared to grower standard fertility program.

While an extension on higher phosphite residue was granted by the EU in 2015 for four 4 years there are still continuing concerns about the use of phosphite based inputs in walnuts and other nut crops as a result of European Union regulations.  Because of this, in 2015 Agro-K began a multi-year trial with independent […]

A comprehensive non-phosphite foliar program in almond trial demonstrates significant yield increases three years in a row compared to the standard fertility program. Increased tree growth was also acheived.

ESCALON, CA – A multi-year trial by a leading independent research contractor, Brooks Bauer, (Two Bees Agricultural Research & Consulting) has found that the Agro-K non-phosphite foliar and soil nutrient program produced statistically significant increases of almond nut meat yield, tree growth, and overall tree health.   Nut meat yield increased 486lbs, 514lbs and 1,017lbs./ac […]

Foliar Nutrition Strategies Blueberry and Cane Berry Growers can Implement this year to Maximize Fruit Size, Quality and Shelf-Life

Blueberry and cane berry growers can take specific steps to influence crop size and quality with foliar nutrition during the fruit “cell-division” stage.  This stage occurs for about 3-4 weeks post fruit set.  It is the period of time where individual cells in the fruit divide rapidly.  This 3-4 week window is one of the […]

Growers maximize almond tree health and yield in challenging weather

Growers looking to increase nut yields, achieve larger nuts and minimize alternate bearing problems should consider adding key nutrients that have early season peak demand to their hull split and codling moth sprays.  A summer application of key nutrients can be the key to boosting yields for next spring. Cool spring soil temperatures limit nutrient uptake [...]

Nutrient management is key to improving fruit set, volume of wine

Nutrient management is key to improving fruit set, volume of wine Upper Midwest soils have always been perfect for bumper crops of corn and soybeans and are increasingly becoming a source of award-winning grapes for wine. Just as row-crop farmers apply manure, potash or other supplements to their soil to boost nutrient levels, vineyard owners […]
