CROP STRESS

Rhino High Tech

Better fruit formation

Improves shape including fruit elongation

  • Essential Part of “Early to Market” Fruit Program
  • Improves shape of fruit which is critical for getting fruit to market early,particularly when it is cold and fruit does not form properly.
  • Outcome – more marketable fruit.
    Examples –
    Capsicum – no pancake fruit
    Lebanese cucumber – enhanced premium fruit elongation
    Strawberries – avoids deformities /shoulders and green tips, so common under adverse conditions.
    Cluster crops – lengthens rachis, increasing the number of fruits per cluster and their uniformity

Promotes cell division
Provides an energy boost through cell division stages for better fruit formation. This results in less fruit abscission.

Extra energy during stress periods
Non-hormonal bioactivator that provides more energy to crops during environmental stress including heat and cold.
