Increased Fruit Size and Crop Yield for Citrus
The effects of BAM-FX™ were initially evaluated in a ten month long field trial with a grower in Temecula, California; the field trial took place from February - November, 2015. The trees were not producing as much new leaf growth and fruit compared to the other trees in the groves. As Kishu trees age, their fruit size and yield diminishes and the fruit has a poor marketable appearance. These factors also create a more time consuming harvest and sorting process. The objective of the trials was to evaluate whether these common issues could be addressed by soil drenching and a foliar spray application of BAM-FX. The proprietary technology behind BAMFX has been proven to boost new leaf growth, increase fruit size and crop yield and reduce the standard fertilization protocols, which provides the grower with an increase in ROI.
Fruit analysis was conducted at the end of the growth cycle by Fruit Growers Lab, Inc. an independent lab. Test results show that BAM-FX increases macro and micro nutrient levels such as Calcium, Copper and Zinc. Additionally, the data collected demonstrates that with just two applications of BAM-FX there was improved overall tree appearance, vitality and growth, an increase in desirable fruit size and a significantly higher fruit yield and lower sodium content. Lower fertilizer cost and usage + higher yield and better fruit = an increase in ROI.
