Better Bunches. Less Stress. Bigger Berries.
Created using our unique technology, Acadian® contains a complex mix of synergistic bioactive compounds that allow crops to reach their full yield potential. It enhances crop quality and productivity by enhancing root growth, improving overall plant nutrition and bolstering tolerance to challenging growing conditions.
Benefits to Grapes
- Increases nutrient uptake
- Mitigates environmental stresses
- Improves overall yield and quality
Acadian Improves Yield and Quality
Acadian works at a cellular level by improving the nutritional status of your crop, leading to large, loose bunches. This, combined with the unique stress-fighting compounds elicited by Acadian, results in strong yields of large clusters with firm, large berries that hold up in storage.
How Does Acadian Benefit Table Grapes?
Improves Nutritional Uptake:
Acadian contains natural complexing sugars that bind to micronutrients, improving their bioavailability and translocation within the plant. When you apply it as part of your regular application program, you are putting nutrients on the fast track and ensuring your plants get the most out of every ounce of fertilizer.
Mitigates Environmental Stresses:
Don’t let stress steal your fruit! Acadian helps your crop better resist tough growing conditions to ensure maximum yield and crop quality by increasing photosynthesis, resulting in improved growth. This improved growth is apparent from grapes treated with Acadian, as they have increased rachis length, allowing for improved airflow and spray penetration into the cluster.
With its numerous bioactive compounds such as mannitol, unique polysaccharides and betaines, Acadian improves a plant’s tolerance to a variety of stressful growing conditions including drought, chill, heat and salinity stress.
Improves Yield and Quality:
Acadian gives your crop strong early growth, good nutrition and the ability to tolerate even the most challenging growing conditions for your best yields ever! In addition, it works at a cellular level to improve your crop’s stress resistance and nutrient uptake resulting in firm berries that keep well in storage.
