Promalin® Helps Shape Success for Apple Growers.
Promalin® is the world's leading Biorational Product for the ADVANCED APPLE FRUIT MANAGEMENT for MAXIMUM FRUIT QUALITY. It is also considered as the best harvest management tool. Promalin® is known for its multifaceted benefits.
The main effects of Promalin® are: increased fruit size, improved fruit shape, and modulated production (reduced alternate bearing). But indirectly, Promalin® has a positive effect on the quality factors listed above.
Color: Promalin® will produce larger fruits, so thinning can be more aggressive. When growers thin to a single fruit per spur, or generally leave fewer fruits, color is generally improved.
Flesh firmness: Promalin® does not directly affect fruit firmness. However, Promalin® treated fruit that are properly thinned will tend to be of similar size and develop more uniformly, leading to less variability in fruit firmness throughout the tree. It must be remembered, however, that larger fruit tend to be softer than smaller fruit, whether they were treated with Promalin® or not.
Storageability: Storage problems are closely associated with fruit of differing physiological maturity at the time of harvest. The use of Promalin® with adequate thinning helps produce a uniform crop that will store better.
Flavor: Flavor is not affected by Promalin® but a uniform crop of evenly sized fruit will have uniform consistent good flavor if properly harvested and handled.
