Citrus and other tropical fruits
Research informed us that fruit trees could reach maturity up to 40% more quickly with the help of certain fungi and bacteria. So when we began to develop our proGanix line, it did not yet have a name, but we looked for a way to halt and reverse HLB (citrus greening). This was the beginning of our citrus program, today called proGanix for Citrus.
The logic is simple, we knew that salicylic acid is beneficial on human skin, as well as on fortifying the defenses of orange trees. That was already documented. We also knew that bacteria, such as Pseudomanas sp, CF 600 (pVI150), are deployed in order to digest dangerous man-made chemicals, such as toluene or phenol.
So, we thought, let us start with a simple approach. Besides providing a good balance of macro and micronutrients in our citrus product line, let us provide bacteria that will compete with citrus greening (Candidatus liberobacter).
Does it sound unbelievable? Too good to be true? Well, on human skin, we now know that Staphylococcus epidermidis protects us from dangerous bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus (commonly known as MRSA) by doing nothing more than taking up real estate on your face and hands. By spreading far and wide, its colonies block the ability of a more harmful bacterium to take hold and occupy your epidermis.
That, in a nutshell, explains our new product line committed to fruit tree development. Contact us to find out what we do about citrus nematodes, phytophthora, canker, psyllids and CBS. We would be happy to provide you with more detail, and even have you visit a site that uses our program, near you.
