Benefits of Kelpak on Table Grapes & Vines
Field trials conducted in California clearly show the many benefits of applying Kelpak Liquid Seaweed Concentrate to table grapes, including:
- Bunch elongation (stretching)
- Increases berry size
- Increases number of export quality bunches
- Increases returns
Recommended application rates
For early growth & bunch stretching: Foliar sprays at 2 pts/Ac at 5 - 10 cm shoot growth.
Optional application 14 days later
For improved berry size & quality: Foliar sprays of minimum 3 pts/Ac after set. Repeat 2 to 3 times at 10 to 14 day intervals
For improved colour & sugar content: Foliar sprays at 3 pts/Ac at start of berry softening. Repeat 14 days later
Important: Increase Kelpak rate to maintain 1:300 dilution when water volume above 1000 pts/Ac is used.
Use 4 - 5 pts/Ac with electrostatic applicators.
Foliar sprays can be substituted with 1% bunch dips or directed bunch sprays. May be applied with gibberellic acid and/or forchlorfenuron applications
Recommended application rates for vines
Apply 1:500 through drippers at start of
new growth (optional for early growth).
Apply 2 pts/Ac twice during flowering at
10 to 12 day intervals (Wine and Raisin Grapes).
