Field Study

Vitazyme on Apples – 2014-Quincy, Washington

An apple nursery study, using Bud 9 rootstock and Vitazyme as a root dip and three subsequent monthly applications, resulted in an 8% increase in tree height over the growing season, as well as an 8.5% increase in trunk circumference. These improvements show the viability of this program to assist more rapid development of young fruit trees in Washington. The trees will continue on the program until the fall of 2015, when harvested trees will be sold by trunk caliper; greater caliper increases will mean improved sales revenue for the nursery.
