Any natural product that can relieve the effects of plant
stress during critical periods of growth will have an obvious role
to play in organic crop production.
For this reason, Maxicrop is widely used by organic fruit, vegetable
and salad crop producers as a means of resisting problems due to
pest and disease attack and minimising environmental stresses.
Early on in the growth of a crop, Maxicrop helps stimulate soil
activity, turning over any plant residues and rendering nutrients

This in turn encourages healthier rooting and better crop establishment
with minimal checks in growth or transplant shock.
During the season, little and often applications, will maintain
high leaf chlorophyll
levels, ensuring maximum utilisation of available radiation and
Regular applications will also maintain a high stress-resistance
threshold, helping the plants internal defence mechanism keep
pests and diseases at bay.
Towards the end of the season, Maxicrop helps retain green leaf
retention and productive growth, thereby maximising yield potentials
and improving crop quality.
