Benefits of Kelpak on Citrus

Kelpak trials on citrus in California, South Africa and Japan show positive yield increases as well as other benefits:

  • Improves rooting of nursery trees
  • Stimulates root and shoot development
  • Better fruit set of bearing trees
  • Better fruit mass
  • Better yields
  • Improves the development of new roots in spring
  • Quicker recovery of trees after harvest

Recommended application rates

Established trees: 0.3% Kelpak foliar spray applied at full bloom, and twice more with
2 to 3 week intervals for bigger fruit.

Post harvest spray at 0.2% with nitrogen application and repeated 14 days later for recovery of heavy fruit bearing.

Tree establishment: Apply 1 L of a 1.0% Kelpak solution (1 L Kelpak in 100 L water) as a soil drench directly after plant or drench the nursery bag with the solution directly before plant-out.

For better tree development apply foliar sprays of 200 ml Kelpak per 100 L water (0.2%) with
3 to 4 week intervals during early growth.
