Vitazyme on Grapes – 2010, Santa Marta, Chile

This fresh grape trial in Chile, using Vitazyme twice at either 1.5 or 2.0 liters/ha, revealed that the product improves early coloration and maturity of Thompson Seedless grapes. Not only was the time to harvest improved (by 58% for 1.5 liters/ha, and 31% for 2.0 liters/ha for the first, more profitable harvest), but the total yield was increased by the 1.5 liters/ha treatment (+8%). In addition, grape sugar was improved with Vitazyme, by an average of 2.3 Brix for the 1.5 liters/ha rate, and by 0.2 Brix for the 2.0 liters/ha rate. According to Syngenta, “The T1 [1.5 liters/ha] treatment represents a real breakthrough and increased crop yield compared with the control and T2 [2.0 liters/ha]”.
