SproutMax PGR fertilizer launched for blueberries

 

New blueberry fertilizer SproutMax by NutriAg is now available in Canada.  Formulated with plant growth stimulants to improve sprout development and uniformity, SproutMax reduces the amount of time it takes to get a fruiting blueberry crop, according to a company news release.

 

SproutMax also contains one of NutriAg’s staple technologies, PAC (polyaldocarbosate). The plant-derived carbohydrates in PAC chelate nutrients to deliver easily metabolized nutrition to the crop, says Dr. Sebastian Margarit, director of agronomy at NutriAg. 

 

SproutMax is compatible with most foliar fertilizers and pesticides, making it a valuable addition to blueberry spray programs.
