Study: Almonds 

Test Date: 11/4/20
Location: Fresno, CA

This study examined the performance of PureCrop1 on almonds. Below are the latest results from an in-field study using PureCrop1 for two full seasons. 

Treatment Rates & Methods

For this trial, 0.75% dilution of PureCrop1 was used for preventative care, increasing to 1.5% for curative treatment when pest pressure rose. We recommend using 1.5% for the first couple of sprays if new to PureCrop1.

Study Conclusions

This graph shows the latest results from an almond farmer using PureCrop1 on 2,000 acres two full seasons. Notice the comparison of 2018's harvest without PureCrop1 to the past two years of ONLY using PureCrop1 -- which replaced seven pesticides.

In 2020, averaging 3,800 pounds per acre, with less than 1% offgrade, his farm is an excellent example of how using PureCrop1 consistently can eliminate pests, mold, and mildew while increasing crop yield over time. This year he increased yield by an additional 26%. He has reduced his level of discard due to pest damage by around 95%. Additionally, the farmer increased yields and crop production led to an overall increase in revenue.

Suggested Dilution Rates

PureCrop1 is not a "one-and-done" type of spray typical to conventional chemical treatments. Much of PureCrop1's chemistry occurs on the microscopic level, making it difficult to observe in real-time. However, you should see a noticeable difference in your plant with consistent coverage after your first few sprays.

Preventative Treatment

Use a dilution of 0.75% v/v rate of PureCrop1 once a week.

Curative Treatment

Use a dilution of 1.5% v/v rate until control. Use 1.5% for the first couple sprays if new to PureCrop1.

*Frequency and dilution rates depend on the variation in crops, growing methods, climate, and geography. Adjust your IPM process based on your specific needs.
