Frequently Asked Questions
What's included in the post harvest application program?
The program consists of a base soil application and a series of foliar applications which are precisely determined by plant sap analysis.
The base soil program includes Rejuvenate™, Seashield™, and Spectrum™. These products together quickly digest leaf residue, increase microbial activity, and unlock stored soil reserves of minerals.
The foliar applications include macro and micro nutrients and trace minerals, and are tailored to the trees' requirements with plant sap analysis.
How does the program work?
The AEA Bud Optimization Program is a simple, yet powerful, three-step program:
Plant sap analysis,
Regenerative soil health program
Foliar nutritional applications applied at each crop’s unique bud initiation stage
What is plant sap analysis?
Plant sap analysis is a breakthrough way to detect mineral and nutrient deficiencies in plants 3-4 weeks before any visible symptoms, and two weeks before standard tissue testing. This creates the opportunity to apply the precise amount of a needed nutrient before a deficiency manifests as a disease or weakness. Plant sap analysis allows growers to supply plants with the minerals and nutrients needed for optimum health and growth throughout the entire growing and harvesting season.
What are the benefits of plant sap analysis?
Monitoring a crop with sap analysis identifies indicators of nutrient crises before they occur, 3-4 weeks before tissue analysis. This data allows for proactive, prescriptive, nutritional supplementation.
The power of sap analysis is the ability to track nutrient flow throughout the growing season, and compare levels to established target values at each stage of development.
Results are bolstered yields and no wasted inputs.
Analysis equips growers with time to address nutrient problems before they manifest as compromised vitality or yields. It is a powerful tool to manage and adjust fertility strategies quickly and precisely, as it captures the exact nutrient uptake before metabolism in plant processes.
