Recently, two evaluation trials of crop biostimulants in Patterson were harvested. These two trials involved a Calcium-based and fungi-containing products, aiming to maintain yield and plant health, and protect crop quality. Ten and eight plants were hand harvested from the respective trial. Fruit were then sorted by their quality, placed in designated buckets, and weighed separately. Plant aboveground biomass was measured after fruit were picked. Red/marketable fruit were subsampled, brought to quality station in Modesto, and measured for pH, Brix, Color reading, and titratable acidity. All results are being analyzed, and final reports will be synthesized soon.
