It’s now June and the rains have not relieved the California drought. With limited rainfall to help flush the salts or to irrigate the crops in summer months, growers will need help to obtain quality yields. Incorporating Accomplish LM into a standard fertility program can really assist here.
Accomplish LM mineralizes nutrients and increases root size and branching so that more of the root system can take up nutrients and water. For specialty crops like tomatoes, the result is better plant performance and higher potential tomato yields (Figures 1 & 2).
Figure 1. Yield increase with Accomplish LM in a split application trial on tomatoes conducted by the University of California Cooperative Extension. Accomplish LM was applied at 2 quarts/acre at transplanting and at 2 quarts/acre 30 days later along with standard fertility and management practices.
Figure 2. Yield increase with Accomplish LM in a split field trial on tomatoes conducted by the University of Florida. Accomplish LM was applied at 3 quarts/acre at transplanting and 3 quarts/acre two weeks later along with standard fertility and management practices.
In a year like we are having, these benefits will be a key part of making sure growers get the ROI they need to stay in business.
