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


Cherry variety Lapins rootstock Franco

Cáceres, Spain

The application of BOMBARDIER has led to the increase in yield of cherry variety Lapins. This increase is due, in greater proportion, to the increase in number of cherries per tree and in lesser proportion, to a slight increase in the fruits average weight. The caliber of the cherries was maintained despite a strong increase in yield.
