Benefits of Kelpak on Cucurbit crops
Kelpak trials on cucurbits in California show positive yield increases above control on butternut, cantaloupe, cucumber, pumpkin and watermelon:
- Reduces transplant shock
- Increased fruit size
- Increased fruit quality
- Higher returns per acre
Direct seeding: Apply Kelpak as a foliar spray at 2 to 3 pts/Ac at the 3 to 4-leaf stage and repeat the foliar application twice at 14 day intervals.
The use of a standard surfactant is recommended, while pH of spray solution should be below 7.
