SETTING THE INDUSTRY STANDARD: Superior tree quality and growth Our goal is to get all the macro and micro nutrients (minerals) as high in the plant as possible while maintaining a proper mineral balance. Unbalanced minerals can have undesired effects to the tree, for example, if nitrogen is out of balance (too high) compared to potassium and calcium in the plant, fire blight will be a problem. We monitor many other mineral levels and make adjustments based on our findings. Having plants with balanced minerals will help repel insects and disease organisms. A strong and healthy root system is also important because it is the root system that delivers the nutrients to the plant.

OUR FOUR STEP PROCESS Our whole program, is based on being as environmentally friendly as possible. It is geared to support life in the soil that is instrumental in producing a strong healthy plant that has good energy in it and that can carry on into a new environment until it is established.

Our residue spray program on the soil feeds the beneficial soil microbes. In doing so, it creates an environment to help support soil life and help hold onto applied fertilizers to prevent leaching. This fertilizer program is sustainable and prevents ground water and run-off contamination.

From the soil analysis, missing macro and micro nutrients are added, building up soil fertility.

A low salt drip irrigation fertilizer is also mixed with organic substances that help prevent leaching. This keeps the fertilizer in the root zone where it is needed and also reduces the amount needed because of efficiency. Roots do not like salt and most commercial fertilizers are laden with them.

A foliar fertilizer program is added to the pesticide applications to increase efficiency. Adding natural chelating agents in the fertilizer maximizes absorption plus it is beneficial to the soil and soil life as the over spray comes in contact with it. Drift becomes less of an issue and more of a benefit.


THE RESULT: BRANCHED ONE YEAR TREES & FIBROUS ROOTS We regularly perform a comprehensive soil audit that monitors all the macro and micro nutrients, pH, organic matter and type of soil. A water solubility test of the soil is performed which gives us insight into soil structure and availability of the major nutrients. These nutrients can be present but unavailable for many reasons. Earth worms, beneficial bacteria and fungi are the workers that take the fertilizer that is added to the soil and convert it into a form that the plant can use. They also protect the roots from soil born plant diseases like fusarium, pythium, phytophthora and even harmful nematodes.

APRICOT MARKET IN ONTARIO

Of all apricots imported to Canada are brought to Ontario, a value of $8.5 million. Ontario only has 52 acres of mapped apricot orchards, a tremendous opportunity for commercial fruit growers.

Apricot production in Ontario is well positioned to meet its large market demand in the coming future, hallmarked by the addition of apricots to the Ontario Tender Fruit Grower marketing board mandate. Ontario averages imports of 3 million kilograms of apricots every year, which has been a stable import quantity for the last 6 years. This volume of imported apricots is valued at $8.8 million. There is a minimal production of apricots in Ontario, a mere 52 acres of mapped orchards; Ontario fruit growers have a lucrative opportunity to take a portion of this market by growing existing cold hardy varieties.

APRICOT ROOTSTOCKS Krymsk® 1

An interesting tree fruit rootstock for providing vigor control and improved fruit size. Additionally, Krymsk®1 appears suited to areas requiring cold hardiness. Krymsk®1 is competitive with traditional rootstocks such as Lovell as a rootstock for either European Plums or Japanese Plums. Early information has demonstrated good yield efficiencies and some enhanced fruit size.

Krymsk® 86

It has repeatedly shown superior anchorage relative to all other rootstocks, including peach/almond hybrids. The vigor and productivity of Krymsk® 86 has been similar to Lovell. The soil adaptation is quite broad, including soils considered too wet for Lovell. The root system of Krymsk® 86 spreads very wide relative to Lovell and Nemaguard. In addition, individual roots possess amazingly high tensile strength, resulting in stronger roots and superior anchorage.

CHERRY VARIETIES Due to sensitivity to spring frosts and untimely rains, sweet cherries can be grown commercially in only a few areas in Canada. British Columbia is the largest producer of sweet cherries, accounting for 1,593 hectares or 89% of total Canadian production. The key production areas are the Okanagan, Similkameen and Kootenay Valleys. Ontario produces most of the remaining 11%

NECTARINE VARIETIES The nectarine, Prunus persica is closely related fruit to the peach, differing genetically by a single recessive gene. Peach and nectarine trees do not differ in appearance, growth response, bearing habit or other general characteristics. Nectarines are distinguished from peaches by their absence of pubescence, smaller size, greater aroma and distinct flavour.

ROOTSTOCKS Bartlett Seedling

Seedlings produce vigorous trees. Adaptable to a wide range of soil. Susceptible to fire blight. Trees of Bartlett on Bartlett seedling rootstock moderately vigorous and strong.

OHxF 87

Proven to be the most precocious of rootstocks. Excellent early production imparts some early spurring and growth control with the Anjou variety. This enables a grower to plant slightly closer in the row than the OHxF 97 and Bartlett Seedlings.

FEATURED VARIETY: COLD SNAP PEAR Refreshing, juicy, and flavourful – this new Canadian Pear is meant to be shared and savoured. Cold Snap is a tasty homegrown treat that stays fresh during our fall and winter seasons. Grown by Canadian farmers, Cold Snap is a delicious alternative to imported pears, so you can feel good sharing its sweet, juicy crispness with family and friends.

OHxF 97

Similar in size to Bartlett seedling and has proven to be very productive, but gives no growth control. Liked for its early fruiting, its excellent vigour (especially for red pears and other less vigorous varieties) and its good anchorage. Responds well to limb manipulation.

PLUM ROOTSTOCKS Krymsk® 1

An interesting tree fruit rootstock for providing vigor control and improved fruit size. Additionally, Krymsk®1 appears suited to areas requiring cold hardiness. Krymsk®1 is competitive with traditional rootstocks such as Lovell as a rootstock for either European Plums or Japanese Plums. Early information has demonstrated good yield efficiencies and some enhanced fruit size.

COMING SOON: ZAIGER INC. GENETICS VARIETIES

Krymsk® 86

It has repeatedly shown superior anchorage relative to all other rootstocks, including peach/almond hybrids. The vigor and productivity of Krymsk® 86 has been similar to Lovell. The soil adaptation is quite broad, including soils considered too wet for Lovell. The root system of Krymsk® 86 spreads very wide relative to Lovell and Nemaguard. In addition, individual roots possess amazingly high tensile strength, resulting in stronger roots and superior anchorage.
