Damu

For improved bulking of root crops.

Key Benefits

Increased flower and fruit numbers

Improved fruit size

More even size distribution

Improved growth during stress

Better fruit quality

Transplant establishment

Technical Data:

Damu works by directing the flow of photosynthates in leaves towards roots, fruit and tubers. This helps the plant to use its energy to bulk up the crop rather than force late season leaf growth. This approach both safeguards quality, and improves size of crops ahead of harvest.

Why is bulking important?

Direction of photosynthate flow is the strongest influence on grading late season. If growing conditions favour shoot growth then more undersized tubers or fruit occur and yield reduces. Damu focuses the plant on pushing resource into yield, forming complexes to move sugars and lifting size and quality.

Nitrogen Use Efficiency in Maize – timing and form for better yield

Nitrogen Use Efficiency in Maize – timing and form for better yield

Maize is a C4 crop, with a metabolism evolved to optimise growth in hot arid conditions. Understanding how this metabolism works can give us an insight into getting higher yields from our fertiliser inputs.  What is a C4 crop? To photosynthesise plants need to extract...

Getting Nitrogen right – the key to good blueberry production

Getting Nitrogen right – the key to good blueberry production

ll crops have their own peculiarities, but none more so than blueberry, a crop that has both metabolic and physiological differences that influence nitrogen use and its effect on growth habit. Here David Marks of Levity Crop Science discusses how...

Potato quality – Calcium and how to use it better

Potato quality – Calcium and how to use it better

Calcium & how to use it better Good calcium levels in potato tubers can reduce multiple quality problems including Internal Rust Spot (IRS), internal browning and hollow heart. Calcium also plays a role in reducing susceptibility to bruising and post-harvest...

Calcium & Strawberry Quality – Why So Erratic

Calcium & Strawberry Quality – Why So Erratic

alcium can improve firmness and quality but is poorly absorbed by maturing soft fruit. Most growers know that calcium is important for soft fruit, as it can improve cell wall strength which has a positive effect on shelf life, firmness and ability...

Stress Resistance

Farmers know that the weather is the single biggest influence on yield, so managing a crop’s ability to deal with it pays large dividends to farmers.

Levity have a strong research focus on helping crops cope with stress.

Our products help deliver better crops during difficult growing conditions.
