PHC TRIALS SHOW HARPIN INCREASES YIELDS
|Print | Back|
Plant Health Care, a leading provider of naturally derived products to the agriculture industry, has announced that in recent trials it was found that potatoes, when treated with PHC’s proprietary Harpin technology while still in the field, produced a 4.4 percent greater marketable yield at harvest and a reduced loss in long-term (7-8 month) storage from 4.6 per cent in the untreated to 1.9 per cent in the treated tubers. These results were achieved in trials conducted by independent crop consultants using commercial production practices in grower fields in Washington and Idaho.
