Artichoke: Earlier Maturity and Greater Size

Artichoke yield increased with Tech-Flo

When fertilizer companies say things like “increased yield,” have you ever wondered what they meant?

This trial follows an artichoke grower for 5 cuts, or rounds, of harvesting made during his growing season. The grower followed a Nutrient Technologies spray program and found that the treated artichokes matured faster and consistently grew bigger than the grower standard. The grower was able to harvest MORE artichokes MORE often that were BIGGER.

The Artichoke grower increased his marketable yield by 22%.

What does that mean for the Artichoke grower? Our foliar program, including Tech-Spray Hi-K plus Tech-Flo Sigma, Omega, ZMC and All Season Blend cost the grower less than $80 per acre, and increased the gross value per acre from $7326 to $9226.

That’s a 25% increase in the value of his crop!

By having the size and quality packers want earlier in the season, the grower was also able to take advantage of better prices. For crops that meet or exceed your expectations season after season, choose a nutrient program designed to meet your goals.

You can order products at or from your local fertilizer dealer like Nutrien Ag Solutions, Northwest Wholesale, Saddle Mountain Supply, Farm Supply, USA Ag Supplies and many more.
