Sunburn is a major cause of crop quality downgrade and losses. Australia has some of the highest UVA-UVB levels in the world and temperatures can severely impact on canopy stress and shut down plant metabolism and growth. Being able to reflect/deflect the damaging effect of too much sunlight using an easy to apply, cost effective spray like CROP BLOCK will help growers get through the peaks of the summer months fruit development.
CROP BLOCK is a liquid suspension of technical grade CALCIUM CARBONATE that is applied to assist in the prevention and reduction of sun burn damage to fresh produce and general crops. CROP BLOCK will allow sufficient sun-light through to produce normal photosynthesis and fruit colouring. When applied, CROP BLOCK forms a white protective film and uniform coverage is also required during periods of heat stress
