To help plants cope with wind damage

Osmoprotectant Biostimulant + 5% Nitrogen
FruitGuardis a novel product that combines biostimulant qualities of Undaria Pinnatifida Brown Kelp, with a greater level ofTrimethylglycine (TMG) than is naturally found in seaweed.
Together withPolyphenols and Anthocyanins which are potent antioxidants, these ingredients combine to help reduce abiotic stress in plants. Three main components of FruitGuard work together to nourish the plant, improve abiotic stress resistance and improve plant recovery by reducing oxidative damage.
Cherries – for split reduction: Apply 5 lt/ha every 7-10 days from early colour change through to 5 days pre-harvest.
Grapes – for early season, cool temperature stress reduction: Apply 1.5 lt/ha, 2 weeks after bud break, increasing the rate with each application up to 4 lt/ha at pre-flower. Based on 2.5M row spacing
For split and botrytis reduction: Apply 4 lt/ha from 2-3 weeks after bunch closure, and every spray thereafter, until 10 days pre-harvest. Based on 2.5M row spacing.
Important note: Please use together with a non-ionic surfactant at label rates. This product is not a fungicide or a biocontrol.
