To have a successful year you need to have good markets, good quality and good yields. We rely on Stoller products to help us reach our goals in two out of three.
Hatch Valley, NM (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
Adams Produce of Hatch, New Mexico credits the use of Root Power™ with a healthy high-yield onion crop.
As Pink Root plagues the local onion crops, this soil-borne disease attacks the roots causing them to shut down and stop the flow of nutrients to the plant. To stop and control the damaging impact of Pink Root on their 2500-acre operation, Adams Produce uses Stoller's Root Feed™ and Root Power™ in the drip irrigation. The result is healthy onions with robust root systems that grow large and uniform in size.
Fourth generation grower Tyson Adams also attributes the reduction in thrip pressure with the healthier onion plants promoted by Root Power. "Not only do we increase our yields with Stoller's Root Power, we can control and reduce our input costs by reducing the amounts of insecticides and fungicides we have to use," states Tyson Adams.
A quick calculation shows Adams Produce increased yield by at least 20% or nearly $1600 per acre with Stoller products. Plus Adams Produce enjoys a premium price for the larger onions grown thanks to the health promoting and sustaining impact of Root Power.
In addition, Stoller products enhance the ability of Adams to grow the specific onions their customers demand. Working closely with Shiloh Produce, the marketing arm of Adams Produce, they fill orders from super colossal onions for onion bloom appetizers to standard-sized cooking onions with long shelf life for grocery chains.
Adams Produce has worked with Stoller for over 10 years to address the health, productivity and yield of its crops. In that time Scott Adams, president and third-generation grower in the Adams Produce organization, attributes everything from quicker hail storm recovery to disease control to the program he has put in place with help from his local Stoller representative.
As Scott Adams explains, "To have a successful year you need to have good markets, good quality and good yields. We rely on Stoller products to help us reach our goals in two out of three."
