We are introducing Core Nutrients to the vineyard and orchard industries of the Okanagan Valley.
Our Products contain essential nutrients and natural hormones to promote healthy grapes and other fruit with increased yield and quality.
One of our products, Vineyard Pro provides the required micro nutrients to produce healthy wine grapes.
Boron helps in sugar production and a deficiency causes reduced fruit set and small deformed berries. Magnesium will increase photosynthetic activity. Zinc is usually deficient in most soils. True foliar application of Zinc aids in initial leaf formation and increases photosynthesis. Manganese is beneficial just after first bloom and two weeks later.
Calcium supplied 10 – 12 days after flowering helps with cell division and increased berry size and follow up applications provides greater fruit durability.
Potassium demand is highest during fruit ripening. A deficiency can reduce vine vigor and berry size. Potassium is not metabolized to become part of the structural components of vines, it remains in its molecular ionic form, and plant membranes are highly permeable to it.
Potassium drives enzyme activation and increases cell membrane transport and translocation of sugars. Shoots and leaves require the most K between post-bloom and veraison, during intense active growth periods.
