Damu

Active Boron for fruit and tuber size.

Key Benefits

Increased flower and fruit numbers

Improved fruit size

More even size distribution

Improved growth during stress

Better fruit quality

Transplant establishment

Technical Data:

Damu works by directing the flow of photosynthates in leaves towards roots, fruit and tubers. This helps the plant to use its energy to bulk up the crop rather than force late season leaf growth. This approach both safeguards quality, and improves size of crops ahead of harvest.

Why is bulking important?

Direction of photosynthate flow is the strongest influence on grading late season. If growing conditions favour shoot growth then more undersized tubers or fruit occur and yield reduces. Damu focuses the plant on pushing resource into yield, forming complexes to move sugars and lifting size and quality.

Stress Resistance

Farmers know that the weather is the single biggest influence on yield, so managing a crop’s ability to deal with it pays large dividends to farmers.

Levity have a strong research focus on helping crops cope with stress.

Our products help deliver better crops during difficult growing conditions.

Tip Burn – Calcium Problem or Agronomy Problem?

Tip Burn – Calcium Problem or Agronomy Problem?

Tip burn is a serious problem for growers of leafy vegetables, with dead leaf tips caused by low calcium levels rendering crops unsaleable and reducing marketable yield. Though the problem areas are usually low in calcium, the cause of that low calcium can be due to...
