Field Study

Vitazyme on Roses – 2011, Tyler, Texas

In this rose trial in eastern Texas, newly planted stems survived considerably better with Vitazyme, with 18% more surviving by total row count, and by 22% using a four replicate analysis. These similar results show that the replicate selection was quite accurate. However, due to great variations in sur- vival for different positions of the rows, the error value was high as the results are not statistically signifi- cant. Plants treated with Vitazyme were 21% taller, on average, than the untreated plants, a difference that was significant at the 22% level. These results show the large response of rose plants to Vitazyme applica- tion despite severe cold periods and drought, using only 0.1% product in the stem dip.
