“In terms of first class quality assessment we do at pack house intake, the Magnation-treated block was the best performing block on the farm.

It had the lowest counts of mold and cladisporium. Also the lowest levels of soft fruit, blistered fruit and low levels of insect damage. When the field was under attack from spider mites it was less severe in the Magnation-treated block.

Comparing it to the control block trial block the Magnation treated block performed 22% better.”
