Stella Maris® Improves Yield and Quality
Stella Maris® works at a cellular level by improving the nutritional status of your crop, which combined with the other naturally occurring stress compounds it triggers, results in great juice quality and beautiful wines.
How Does Stella Maris® Benefit Cherries?
Improves Nutritional Uptake:
Stella Maris® improves nutrient uptake and drives rachis growth (stretch) for looser clusters and better airflow around the fruit.
Stella Maris® contains natural complexing sugars that bind to micronutrients, thereby improving their translocation and bioavailability within the plant.
When you apply Stella Maris® as part of your regular nutrition program, you’re 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 ruin your crop! Stella Maris® helps your crop better resist tough growing conditions by increasing photosynthesis, resulting in improved growth. This improved growth is apparent in grapes treated with Stella Maris®, 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, Stella Maris® improves plants’ tolerance to a variety of stressful growing conditions including drought, heat, chill and salinity stress.
Improves Wine Quality:
Stella Maris® can be used to increase yield, while maintaining or increasing wine quality. It increases berry set and reduces crop loss due to stress. Stella Maris® elicits the production of naturally occurring stress compounds, such as anthocyanins, which contribute to quality of the juice for high-quality wine.
Rates and Timings
Apply Stella Maris® at 2.5 to 5 litres per hectare at planting or early spring growth; follow by treatments every 7-30 days. Applications can be either foliar or soil.
Additional applications can be made 3-5 days prior to an anticipated plant stress.
Stella Maris® mixes well with nutrients and other agricultural products.
