How to easely increase the BRIX level in your fruit!
The measurement of the Brix degree determines the pure sucrose content in the samples.

This is a wellknown application not only in the food industry, but also in the chemical sector. The degree Brix is represented by the following equation: 1 degree Brix (°Bx) = 1 g sucrose/100 g solution. But does this apply to any type of sample? Is 12°Bx in orange juice equivalent to 12g sugar?

In practice, this is not necessarily true. The Brix scale is used to measure the sugar content of substances such as sodas, fruit juices and tomato pastes, as well as products such as cutting oils, which are often far removed from solutions containing only sucrose and water. This has led to some confusion, especially when comparing the results obtained by means of different measurement techniques (hydrometer, pycnometer, refractometer, digital density meter).

A high Brix value indicates a good taste and quality of your harvest. The taste of your final product will be sweeter if the Brix value is high. A crop that has had a high Brix value can be stored for a longer period of time. In addition, plants with a high Brix value will have better resistance to insect attacks.

Another advantage of measuring the Brix value regularly is that it allows you to analyse the evolution of growth and see how the quality of your crop develops over time. Such information can help you define the best time for harvesting. On the other hand, a low Brix value can indicate a nutritional deficiency in your plant. Here is a testimonial from a partner grower who uses both CelexT07 and Plantiful to ensure a very high Brix in these productions.

"We've had magnificent yields with BioSun's products." In autumn strawberries, we recorded a 15% increase in harvest. For raspberries and blueberries, the harvest was extraordinary, spanning 8 weeks instead of the usual 3 or 4 weeks of harvest.

That's a huge difference. In blueberries we estimated our mature field at 20 pounds per plant, I usually get 10-12 pounds.

As for the taste of the fruit, it tends to be sweeter than average, but here we Brixed raspberries at 18 and blueberries at 20.

It's remarkable! » Éric Dupuis, agronomist of FRAISIÈRE ÉRIC DUPUIS. Summary: Benefits Increased yields, Extension of the harvest period Improved Brix Rate Reinforcement of resistance to various stresses. Usage Alternately apply Plantiful and Celext07 one week apart Foliar or root-based mode

Three applications for each product Ideally when transplanting before flowering and after stress episodes such as cold, heat or drought.

Biostimulants have created better conditions for plants to develop and allow them to grow at almost 100% of their capacities.
