One of the Best Products for Quality
With MultiFIX as the only variable on numerous trials, vineyards have produced an
average of $200 to $800 per acre additional income with increases in yield and quality.
Variety and yearly market price dictate income. A 3% to 15% additional yield is a
realistic expectation with MultiFIX added to a prudent fertility program.
Affects of MultiFIX on Vines
Tonnage of Chardonnay was 4.56 (12.59 pounds per vine) versus 6.24 (17.21 pounds per
vine) with MultiFIX applications.
Minor elements converted to usable forms in the soil allowing better uptake by the
plants. Petiole tests indicated deficient amounts of minor elements prior to
MultiFIX treatment and were adequate after one year of MultiFIX applications.
Nematode counts were significantly lower (80% fewer) where MultiFIX was applied
compared to vine rows not treated with MultiFIX after two years of treatment.
Leaf burn occurred every August in alkali areas. MultiFIX applications were
initiated three years ago. Results indicate no burn the last three years in alkali areas.
Earlier sugar was present in grapes treated with MultiFIX. Picking accomplished
10 to 30 days sooner than other growers in the area. Grapes dry faster and maintain
B grade is 4 points higher the first year in side by side comparison with
Flame seedless had higher sugar content and grapes had more crunch from firmer skin
with MultiFIX applications. Grapes were larger in MultiFIX treated area.
Vine growth is more vigorous. Approximately 20% additional cane and leaf. Sucrose
averaged 8.4 with MultiFIX and only 6.1 from non-treated blocks. Fruit was larger
with MultiFIX increasing tray count by 128 per acre over the control.
