A Customized Post-Harvest Approach
As the season ends, it is easy to overlook the necessities of post-harvest nutrition. After harvest, nutrition levels have been depleted, and the strength that the plant once had has been diminished. Before the plant goes into dormancy, it is vital to build the plant's strength and replenish the nutrients. Having the correct level of nutrition gives the crop the strength and stress-fighting abilities it needs for the upcoming season. Treating plants post harvest with proper nutrition can lead to early leave development, better and more fruit development, early production, and many other positive benefits.
Identifying the plant's needs and addressing them with an individualized approach takes the guess work out of determining these nutrient deficiencies. Extractor, one of Helena's AGRIntelligence offerings, is an advanced tissue management system designed to provide you with the crop's current nutrient status, as well as recommendations for correcting nutrient deficiencies and hidden hunger. The samples are analyzed in agricultural laboratories for macro-, secondary, and micro-nutrient concentrations. Optimum thresholds for each nutrient and growth stage are well established, and the report you receive quickly displays the current level of each nutrient.
The information from an Extractor report gives you a customized solution for your post-harvest nutrition program. Not all crops are equal, and determining the hidden hunger of your crops helps assure that your plants needs are being met.
