Although this is just a small part of the overall data, we wanted to get some initial information out. If you are planning to plant strawberries this summer, we would highly recommend that you apply 16 ounces of MetaboliK HV-1 prior to, or just after planting. This is based upon the data from the strawberry project at Kalamazoo, MI.
Data below shows results on 7 of the ten varieties (One variety was not picked due to disease, and two others are not to the point where the data has been completely entered and or compiled.
Both Control and HV-1 received ISP plant foods (10-20-20, 4-18-38) through the drip lines. The HV plots had MetaboliK HV-1 applied at a rate equal to 16 ounces/acre following planting. Another application equal to 12 ounces/acre was applied this spring after the straw was removed.
