Croptimum for Leafy Crops

A revolutionary mode of action for a unique combination of results in growing leafy crops.

On this page, you can find specific information for growers of leafy crops about our innovative solution Croptimum.

Observations: Field trials – Lettuce (Spain)

Field trials (from December, 2021 to March, 2022) with lettuce (in Spain) showed that the application of Croptimum significantly increases the harvested weight of the final product. An increase of 20% in harvested weight was observed, while root mass increased with almost 23%.

The amount of unmarketable crops also decreased with 38% after application of Croptimum. Unmarketable crops decreased from 4.4% to 2.7% after application. The application of Croptimum also resulted in crops with lower salt contents and increased hardiness of leaves.

Standard grower program

Croptimum applied

Observations: Improved quality and yields

During field trials, partially in conjunction with a Dutch independent Research Organization, Croptimum was used for seed and young plant treatment in lettuce. The same trial design was done with Bok Choy at a grower field, showing similar results: the trial showed up to 10% more germination, healthier crop, and 11% more biomass (bok-choy 13%).

Young Plants

The following results were seen at several independent research institutes and at grower fields in The Netherlands and Spain.

Observation 4 weeks after seeding: increase of 8% successful germination with Croptimum treatment, compared to benchmark inputs.

Observation 4 weeks after seeding: increase of 10.5% biomass (weight in grams) with Croptimum treatment, compared to untreated plots.

The difference in crop growth between benchmark inputs (l) and Croptimum (r) 4 weeks after seeding, accumulated to 27% more crop.

The difference in crop growth between untreated plots (l) and Croptimum (r) 4 weeks after seeding, accumulated to 10.5% more crop.

Lettuce

Applying Croptimum to newly seeded plants showed an increase in biomass of more than 10%.

Bok Choy

Field trials with bok choy in The Netherlands resulted in an increase of the average crop weight of more than 13%.
