Damu

Active Boron for fruit and tuber size.

Key Benefits

Better grading

Improved bulking of root crops

Higher marketable yield

Increased fruit, pod and tuber size

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.

B is for bulking – Using Boron to increase potato yield

Boron is the most variable of all plant nutrients in terms of how it is transported and metabolised by different plant species - because of this response to Boron can be highly variable. Boric acid, the main form in which plants take up boron from soils is not phloem...
