Improve Yields on Cherry and Grape with OneUP™

Background

OneUP™ is designed to produce stronger root systems, increased yield , and improved soil health. It can be applied on or near the roots or used as a foliar application midseason. Testing was needed to determine its effectiveness in increasing yields in the vineyards and orchards of Western North America.

Introduction

Agronomist Stephen S. Deitz of Sawtooth Ag Research ran two-season field trials on sweet cherries (Prunus avium) and table grapes (Vitis vinifera). The two-season trial evaluated effects of a new fertilizer product, Simplot OneUP™, on yield of orchard and vineyard crops.

Methods

The treatments were delivered to the plants with a combination of foliar and soil applications throughout the season. Each study was a randomized complete block design with multiple replications.

Results

Application of OneUP™ increased grape yield by 21% (132 more boxes/acre), berry size by 7%, and quantity of #1 bunches by 38%. In cherries, application produced 21% more large fruit and 50% less small fruit when compared with the untreated plots. With a $15/box premium for fuit size increases, OneUP™ increased the cherry grower's returns by an average of $650/acre.
