Field Experience | Horticultural | Equilibrium®

The biological effectiveness of the biostimulant Equilibrium®  versus the two market benchmarks based on seaweed was assessed. The results mark significant differences for the synergistic components of Equilibrium®.


Trial data:
  • Location: Santarem, Portugal
  • Crop: Industrial tomato var. H1015
  • Conditions: June-August 2018 (High TºC and relative humidity)
  • Experimental design: 4 completely random blocks
  • Plantation setting: 3 lines (1.5m/line) x 4 m long per plot

The results show a significantly higher increase of production with Equilibrium (21%) in comparison to the control and the two standard products (+7% and +8% respectively).
 
Conclusions:
In two areas and different climatic conditions (Costa Rica and Portugal) treatment with Equilibrium achieved a biological effect in regulating flowering and setting of the fruit, providing substantial increases in the tomato crop's final production and performance.
