New for Fruit Focus 2022, ENGAGE are excited to launch Fortify Maxx™.
Building on the success of their Fortify platform of market-leading biostimulation technologies, such as Fortify Cu and Fortify XD, Fortify Maxx™ introduces a brand-new technology, Phenophites.
Unique to ENGAGE, Phenophites are plant extracts that increase the natural production of phenolic compounds from secondary pathways and significantly limit a plant’s susceptibility to stress of any kind. Phenolic compounds comprise flavonoids, phenolic acids, camalexins, tannins, lignans, and coumarins; compounds naturally found in fruits, vegetables, cereals, roots, and leaves.
Research over the last 30 years has proven that the stimulation of secondary plant pathways can aid plants to limit damage from oxidative stress, phosphites being just one well known example. Fortify Maxx™ takes this research further by using natural extracts rather than inorganic substances. New research across the world suggests that naturally elevating production of these compounds has far greater potential health benefits to plants.
Phenolic compounds can work as antioxidants against oxidative stresses such as low or high temperature, deficient or excess water, high salinity, heavy metals, and ultraviolet radiation and
pathogenic pressure. The Phenophites in Fortify Maxx™ work in conjunction with a nutrient package to significantly reduce the effects of these stresses on plant growth and development.
