Speeds up and improves the color of the fruit
Blush is a fertiliser designed to improve maturation in fruits and vegetables, without effecting shelf life. It provides molybdenum and boron that the crop needs to mature in a highly efficient formula that improves colour by speeding up the formation of pigments. Blush also promotes the formation of sugars, improving sweetness of the fruit.
Blush quickly promotes the acquisition of a better and more uniform colour in the fruit, improving the overall appearance, and reducing time to picking. Particularly useful towards the end of season as fruits take longer to ripen.
Blush acts as a promotor in the synthesis of both carotenoid pigments and oxidase enzymes, which are precursors of abscisic acid (ABA) that promote maturation.

How does Blush technology work
Molybdenum is a key element in the formation of ABA (abcic acid).
On the one hand, it acts as a key cofactor in the synthesis of carotenoid pigments, which are precursors of ABA. On the other hand, it forms an essential structural part of the oxidase enzyme that converts the aldehyde of abscisic acid into the hormone ABA.
Blush improves both processes, influencing the formation of carotenoids and anthocyanins (colored pigments) and, therefore, on the date of harvest, but does not alter the process of phenological development of the fruit (the fruit does not age prematurely).
Aplication and Dosage
1.5 litres / ha diluted in a volume between 200 to 1000 litres of water. Ensure thorough coverage of plant and fruit. Use a medium / fine droplet spectrum. Repeat application after 5 days depending on requirements.
