Table Grape Profitability

SFS Grapes

Problem

Early To Market

Solution

The most profitable crops are those that can be harvested early in the season when demand is high and supply is limited. The Early To Market Program helps growers produce grape yield and quality early in the season when it is a challenge.

Water Efficiency

A strategy to maximise the use of available water.

FIX & RELEASE
- Improves soil wetness and lateral spread of moisture to provide uniform wetting of the soil profile.

Heat Stress

Use stress mitigators to reduce the impact of heat stress on vines.

BOMBARDIER
- Contains specific balance aminogram and antioxidants that builds a strong stress mitigating profile in grape vines.

Alkaline Soils

High soil pH reduces the availability of nutrients to the vine, particularly phosphorus and trace elements.

Batallón
- Solubilises phosphorus and releases potassium
- Improves soil structure

Soil Enhancer
- Improves soil performance

Soil Activator
- Activates microbial activity
