Field Study

Vitazyme on Cherries – 2013-Brewster, Washington

This in-orchard cherry study in Washington proved that Vitazyme performed much better than did Stimplex seaweed extract in terms of yield (24%), added income ($4,453.49/acre), cost:benefit ratio (118.76 : 1), and quality parameters such as fruit size (3.8% larger diameter), fruit weight (4.3%), fruit pressure (22%), and fruit Brix (0.2%-point). The fruit was sweet, firmer for storage and transport, and larger for customer preference. Also, the researcher noted that there was much better and consistent fruit set in the Vitazyme treated trees, especially in the interior of the trees where less fruit was concentrated. The Vitazyme program is shown to be an excellent product for cherry growers in Washington.
