Fitomag® reduces the negative impact of the fruits stressed storage conditions, such as the late establishment of recommended temperature and atmospheric composition, notable variations of these parameters.
Fitomag® is absolutely safe for both people and the environment during production, storage, application and consumption. High efficiency is achieved by using very low drug concentrations. Drug functioning is similar to natural factors that guarantee the harmlessness to humans and the environment.
Fitomag® helps in preserving the firmness, juiciness, crisp texture, appearance, and taste of fruits and vegetables during storage in regular or controlled atmosphere, and when you break the cold chain during produce processing, transportation and sale. Applying Fitomag® extends the shelf life of apples and pears for 2-4 months, and stone fruit, tomatoes and cucumbers for 6-8 weeks.
Result is the most important thing for us. Treatment with Fitomag® is effective and allows us to keep the post-harvest quality of fruits until May-June.
Before processing the harvest at the state farm, we had opportunity to visit an agricultural enterprise in Krasnodar region and see how the drug works.
Drug treatment is a whole program that conducted by the FitomagInter specialists. State farm specialists are taking part in it. We do not need to worry about the result of processing, because professionals carry it out. They determine Fitomag® dosage based on the analysis of the fruits quality and control the storage process.
FitomagInter is focused on the result. We appreciate it very much, that is why we have been working with the company for many years and will continue to use Fitomag®.
We have been working with FitomagInter LLC for more than ten years and our business relationship has already turned into a friendship. Fitomag® is a revolution in apple storage, especially for the central Russia apple varieties such as Antonovka. This variety has a very low keeping quality - only about one and a half months. Antonovka is stored until the New Year after processing Fitomag®. After processing apple variety such as Sinap Orlovskiy, can be safely stored until the new harvest.
The apple's shelf life is very important, because its price in April is much higher than in November. Fitomag® is inexpensive, but you get a higher income using it.
Apple's hardness also increases after processing with Fitomag®. This is a very important factor, to which we paid little attention until we began to work with retail. Chains require supplying solid apples to the shelves.
This year, one doctor of science, a professor, advised me do not process apples Ligol. I listened to him and lost about two million rubles, because the apple sunburned in March. We opened the chambers in which these apples were stored in controlled atmosphere, and saw that two thousand tons were lost. We saved 120 thousand rubles, but lost 2 million. Now we will always process apples with Fitomag®.
