Most perennial crops will do a final leaf flush after harvest or in the fall, to expand new root growth and store sugar produced through photosynthesis as starch to be used for next year’s spring growth flush. The tree also reduces its total moisture content and begins to synthesize the proteins it will need in
Rainforests on infertile wet soils support more than half of all plant species. Shrublands on infertile dry soils in southwestern Australia, jokingly called “knee-high tropical rainforests,” support another 20 percent of all plants. Nutrient scarcity is the common denominator. In both ecosystems plants team up with soil bacteria or fungi to gather nutrients more efficiently.
Foley Family Wines has applied Andaman Ag foliar fertilizers (Agrostim and Supergrow) as part of their overall fertilization program starting early in the season and they’ve witnessed a substantial improvement in the health of their vines and canopies at post harvest. Al Wagner, Vice President of Vineyards, stated that, “our vineyards treated with Andaman Ag foliar fertilizers
Application of Agrostim on Cabbage, Celery, Green Onions, Mustard Green, Ornamental Flowers, Spinach, Sunflowers, Tomatoes, Grains, Tea and Silk Plants showed improvements in yields, crop size (height and diameter), flavors, color (more vibrant), nutritional (mineral) content, root ball growth, disease resistance and less crop loss or spoilage.
Improved yields and production in drought conditions
Agrostim helps mitigate pathogenic plant diseases and insect pressure
The use of Citrastim significantly improved yields and fruit quality.
Crop: Table Grapes Result: Produced clusters that were on average 7.4% heavier with 66.1% less total cull area Location: Fresno County, California Summary and Observations The Flame Seedless grapevines involved in this study each produced an average of approximately 37 primary bunches (clusters). Those vines treated with five foliar applications of Agrostim™ at 1.0 gallon
Crop: Sunflower Result: Increased plant height, head and leaf diameter as well as 27.67% increase in yield Location: Mallapur, India Sunflower has become widely cultivated in India as a source of low cost vegetable oil and protein. Sunflower is highly valued for its anti-cholesterol properties. Commercial scale cultivation of sunflower was initiated in 1972 throughout
Crop: Rose Result: Recognized cost-benefit and product appearance of using Agrostim relative to other products Location: Guang Dong Province, China (PRC) To study the fertilizer effects of Agrostim™ organic based fertilizer on ornamental flowers; studies were initiated in January 1997 at the Agriculture Science Research Institute for Flowers – Guang Dong Province, the Peoples Republic
Crop: Silk Result: Increased plant height, diameter and number of leaves per stem. Location: Lamdong Province, Vietnam Large scale independent controlled field studies have been completed in Vietnam to investigate potential improvement of the yield and overall “quality” of White Mulberry leaves for consumption by silkworm caterpillars. Besides the excellent plant increases in leaf material
Crop: Grain and Sorghum Result: Increased yield and growth of tea and rice and helps the plants to resist the attack of Pathogenic Plant Diseases Location: Madras, India Increased plant quality and vigor obtained from Agrostim utilization greatly enhances the Yield of Tea Leaves but, as well, enables the plants to resist the attack of
Crop: Grain and Sorghum Result: Increased yield Location: India Sorghum is a vigorous annual grass adapted to the drier environmental zones in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Australia. Annual world production approaches 40-45 million tons from approximately 40 million hectares of land, making sorghum the 5th most important cereal. Sorghum is a vital source of
Crop: Cashew Result: Increase yield and nut size Location: Vietnam Cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) is a valuable tropical evergreen tree grown in many Asian and African countries. The “nut” is only one of a number of components of the fruit that has commercial value (cashew oil, cardol and anacardic acid, etc.). The “apple” has a
Crop: Water Spinach Result: Yield increases of 30% to 40% and increased the nutritiously (iron) important leaf area by approx. 120% Location: West of Beijing, China Building on extensive vegetable studies of Agrostim™ in the United States, Vietnam, Egypt, Canada, Colombia, Syria, India, China, Honduras, and Guatemala, a series of Water Spinach – Agrostim™ studies
