Increased Overall Growth & Faster Growth Rate of Tangerines in Peru
Date: January 2020 (summer)
Place: Chincha, Peru
Details: The Kyminasi Plant Booster (KPB) technology was installed at La Calera Farm in Peru on 1.5 hectares (3.75 acres) of a tangerine grove in December 2019. La Calera has over 4,500 hectares (11,250 acres) of citrus, avocados, table grapes, pomegranates, and other fruit. The tangerine seedlings were about one month old when the scientific trial began.
The tangerine trees that were treated with KPB grew faster and flowered earlier, demonstrating a 30% increase in the growth rate as compared to the control trees. The KPB tangerine trees produced more leaves and even began flowering after only 26 days of treatment. The farmer suggested that the growth of the KPB-treated tangerine trees resembled three-month-old trees even though they were actually two-month-old trees. The KPB trees were an average of 15 centimeters taller than the control trees. The leaves of the KPB tangerine trees were a much brighter green color than the control trees. This brighter pigment in the KPB plants indicated significantly healthier plants than the control plants.
