Batallón in Blueberry variety Aurora

Over 250 trials on 120 different crops from over 90 countries.


Blueberry variety Aurora

Mangualde, Portugal

Plants treated with BATALLÓN show a tendency to increase production especially in the first and second harvest, in addition a more balanced growth has been verified which culminated with an increase in the precocity of the production.

Additionally, the plants showed a concentrated and homogenized maturation, which implies a reduction in harvest costs since it is not necessary to pick ripe fruits within the plant, this reduces harvest times and it results in higher economic performance.


Higher production and precocity

+6,3% (716 kg/ha)

Higher quality and more degrees brix

+8% (0,9 ºBrix)

Higher gross profits of the crop

+5,6% (2.892€/ha)
