Canadian blueberries get a registered plant growth regulator

NutriAg recently introduced SproutMax, which it’s calling one of the first plant growth regulator (PGR) products available in Canada for blueberries.

The technology in SproutMax speeds up the filling process in new fields, reducing the amount of time it takes to get a fruiting blueberry crop, according to a news release from the company. Its technology is formulated with plant growth stimulants that work together to improve sprout development and uniformity.

SproutMax also contains one of NutriAg’s staple technologies, PAC (PolyAldoCarbosate). The plant-derived carbohydrates in PAC technology chelate nutrients to deliver easily metabolized nutrition to the crop.

“Improvements in the speed of development in all perennial crops is key to a grower’s profitability, and blueberries are no exception,” said Sebastian Margarit, Director of Agronomy at NutriAg. “SproutMax has demonstrated an ability to improve the proliferation and density of new plants in developing fields and we’re excited to be offering this solution to blueberry growers in Canada.”
