Vitazyme on Apples – 2007, Albion, New York
This Ida Red apple study in western New York proved that Vitazyme’s active agents, for the second year in a row, improved fruit pressure, and therefore crispness and storability. Likewise, as for 2006 the starch content of the fruit was slightly less with product application. However, whereas in 2006 there was no change in fruit brix, this study revealed a significant increase in fruit sugars of 0.5 percentage point.
Unlike last year, when the yield with Vitazyme was increased by 16%, the yield was not increased in 2007. It is believed that the very wet fall and winter of 2006-2007 contributed to a reduced response of the treated area in 2007, since the Vitazyme area has a wetter soil condition
