Kelpak proudly sponsors International Cherry Symposium in Japan
Kelpak was recently invited to present at the 8th International Cherry Symposium in Japan. The event was a resounding success and well attended by researchers, distributors and growers. The conference provided all involved with a useful networking platform as well as valuable insights into Kelpak's advances and benefits in cherry production.
Significant results on pollen tube growth
Scientists and growers globally recognise that Kelpak consistently enhances beneficial responses in plants. These include improved root and shoot growth, higher yields and increased tolerance to stress. Recent studies demonstrate that Kelpak also significantly increases pollen germination and pollen tube growth that subsequently improves plant fertilization and fruit set.
Excellent results on avos
Nursery trials conducted in Chile and Mexico showed improved young tree growth with Kelpak application. Field trials in Chile using Kelpak on bearing trees showed yield improvement on both poor and strong flowering avocado trees, when compared to the control. The comparison indicated improved fruit set and retention, better fruit shape, and ultimately higher yields.
Supporting marine ecology
Kelp Products International recently presented a new inflatable boat to the City of Cape Town in an effort to support marine conservation in the sensitive Cape Peninsula coastal area.
