Trial Results

Kleur Plus Grape Results

Two table grape cultivars were treated with chemical standard solutions consisting of the following Afrinat program: Standard 1, Standard 2 and Kleur Plus applied in 6, 4 and 2 weeks prior to the harvest date. The colour and size of the berries were assessed prior to treatments.

Both cultivars showed enhanced colouring after treatment with the Afrinat program: Standard 1, Standard 2 and Kleur Plus. The Afrinat program also contributed to increased grape sizes and weight compared to the chemical and untreated controls. These results were reported by an independent party.
