CROP BOOST 2000 - Potato Growers

 

 

Naturally The Best

POTATO   STIMULANT

EXTRACTED FROM SEAWEED

PERFECTED BY SCIENCE

TO GIVE YOU IMPROVED

QUALITY AND YIELD

 

CROP BOOST is a new crop growth stimulant.

Unlike most other growth stimulants, CROP BOOST is based on Laminaria brown algae rich in certain key growth compounds.

The unique manufacturing technique uses catalytic extraction which produces consistently high levels of these plant compounds. This process also eliminates harmful impurities from the extract.

CROP BOOST is formulated as a stable uniform liquid for foliar application to arable and horticultural crops.

CROP BOOST improves crop yield and quality by stimulating photosynthetic activity and root growth. Treatment results in crops that are healthier and better able to withstand periods of stress.

CROP BOOST is environmentally safe and non-toxic to use.

 

 

Other benefits of Crop Boost 2000:

1. Improved skin texture

2. Longer storage life

3. Improved tuber uniformity, especially in drought conditions.

Because it is a natural yield enhancer, using plant growth stimulants obtained by fermentation extraction, Crop Boost 2000 leaves no chemical residues in the soil.
