Want the Highest Consistent Yielding Almonds?

Maximizing profitability in your almond orchard starts with maximizing nut set every year. Achieving consistency in set and minimizing alternate bearing cycles is the key to consistent yields and higher profits. The secret is ensuring the tree has the right nutrients at the right time in the right forms and right mix. Nut set can be influenced by boron which [...]

Growers Say KDL® Helps Defang Jack Frost’s Bite

Cold Climate grape cultivars are helping growers build a robust wine and tourism industry across many states, but this is a viticulture that requires a well-planned strategy for frost protection. Whether the frost arrives late in the spring as it did in 2012 or early in the fall as in 2011, growers know the risk is there. Each year more growers [...]

Get a Jump on Frost with KDL

How can KDL help protect or minimize frost damage?  During spring, as plants begin to grow new green tissue, the demand for nitrogen is at its greatest. At this stage the nitrogen to potassium ratio favors nitrogen. During the fall, as fruit ripens and plants begin to “harden off” and prepare for winter, the demand [...]

Quality & Yield From Sysstem- SeaCal

Calcium is a critical nutrient in growing quality fruit and vegetables. Getting calcium into the crop during the fruit “cell-division” window is the key to improving crop quality, marketable pack-out and grower profitability. Maximizing calcium levels in the fruit will improve cell wall thickness leading to improved skin appearance, transportability and shelf-life. Every crop is different, but supporting each crop’s peak demand timing [...]

Hull Split and Post Harvest Sprays Sysstem® Series Late Season NutBuilder Nutrient Program.

The best time to nutritionally impact next years almond crop is Hull Split and/or Post Harvest application timings. Many almond growers with late varieties or early leaf drop and/or who rely on custom spray application often find post harvest applications difficult logistically. Now growers have new stronger nutritional tools to make the Hull Split application just as effective [...]

What is Symspray® and How it is Different From Other Seaweed Products

First, Symspray® is a “stabilized” seaweed extract solution. The natural compounds (hormones) known as plant growth regulators (PGRs), which are found in all seaweeds, have a limited shelf-life. Agro-K has a unique stabilizing process that has shown to greatly improve the stability of these important compounds. Second, Agro-K uses Ascophyllum nodosom as its seaweed source. [...]

Farmers boost days of corn stubble grazing for cattle with Bio-Mulch

Here’s something to ruminate on. Near Scottsbluff, Nebraska a farmer-rancher found over the last winter that his cattle preferred grazing Bio-Mulch™ 7-0-0 treated corn stubble so much that for a remarkably long time they wouldn’t even bother with the neighbor’s untreated half-pivot. And consider the production economics that resulted. The cattle required less supplemental feed […]
