Trial on Blueberry - Isidro Mozatepec, Jalicso, MexicoKTS® is a clear, chloride-free solution that features the highest potassium and sulfur content available on the market.
- Boosts crop quality: improves consistency, protein content, crop color, sweetness and shelf life
- High potassium delivers efficiency to ensure a better crop yield
- Improves the assimilation of other nutrients present in the soil (phosphorus and other nutrients)
- Liquid potassium and sulfur fertilizer without either nitrogen or chloride
Cooperation with: Francisco Peña (Tepeyac distributor)
Type of application: drip irrigation
Parameters measured: yield
Variety: Biloxi Blueberry
Goal: measure effect of KTS® in the maturity to evaluate yield
Complementary applications of KTS® were made to favor the ripening of the berries in the final stages of cutting the blueberry.
Location: the demonstrative trial was established on the farm in an area of 1 hectare. The plot presented uniform characteristics of maturity after KTS® applications.
The fertigation was applied 7 liters each 3 days by 6 weeks until maturity stages, according to the farmer’s program through drip irrigation systems.
The applications were done as substitution of potassium source.
Yield: an increase of 1.4 t/ha was observed with thiosulfates applications.
Cost benefit: an increase of 1.4 t/ha with T1 did represent an extra income of $6.466 USD for the farmer.
|T0 to check||10.2|
|T1 liquid fertilization||11.7|
Liquid fertilization in the crop has greater benefits compared to traditional fertilization in maturity terms.
The producer observed an increase of number of boxes after first week of KTS® application from 300 to 400 boxes per hectare.
