ACRECIO: Increased Yield, Earlier Harvest

ACRECIO biostimulant increase head lettuce size quality profit

New opportunities arise when you are prepared.

A lettuce grower participating in a field trial for ACRECIO learned firsthand that real money is at stake if you have the quality marketers want, when they want it.

ACRECIO was shanked in pre-plant at 1.25 gal/acre and side-dressed after thinning at 1.25 gal/acre.  The grower had the whole crop contracted for processing.  When a 3-day window became available for a better paying fresh market contract, they assessed the fields*.

ACRECIO treated lettuce would be ready in time for fresh market harvest the following week.  The grower’s standard lettuce was too small.  At harvest, treat acres averaged 38 pounds per 24-count box.

The treated acres were harvested earlier for a premium price and showed an increase in quality and yield over the grower standard.

The grower also wanted to replace his $200/acre biostimulant product to increase his profitability.  The grower’s standard earned $12,984/acre.  The ACRECIO input cost about $75/acre and returned him $14,821.acre.

That is a net return of $1,763 MORE per acre with ACRECIO.
