Productivity

There is no sustainably grown food without an operation that is able to sustain itself profitably.

We understand yield and quality are critical to your bottom line. As global food production increases to meet population growth, we know that you will need to produce more food with fewer resources, on the same amount of land.

Our plant growth regulators can help you extend your harvest period and protect your crops in storage to increase your yield. Here is a little bit about the products available to you:

ReTain® Plant Growth Regulator 

ReTain® is the foundation of successful harvest management and post-harvest quality programs for apples and pears. ReTain is now registered for up to two applications prior to harvest. With up to two applications per acre per season, ReTain creates an extended harvest management period and opportunity for more marketable fruit. ReTain naturally inhibits biosynthesis of ethylene—a plant hormone that affects fruit maturation, ripening, drop and other processes.
