Designed for use on fruit trees, berries, legumes and canola, Biopolin® is a pollination enhancer. It is sprayed on the crops while they are blossoming, stimulating pollinators to become more active and thus they are more often visited by these insects. This results in better pollination and consequently, a substantial increase in yield and quality.
Biopolin® is manufactured using advanced microencapsulation technology which prevents rapid evaporation of the stimulants shortly after product application. The substances are placed in microcapsules and are gradually released. Therefore, the stimulating effect on pollinators is stable and extended in time.
It is found that the number of pollinating insects visiting the flowers of crops significantly increases after the application of Biopolin®. This mainly applies to honey bees but also to other pollinators (red mason bee, bumblebee...etc).
A greater number of visits made by pollinating insects results in the following:
improved fruit set
greater number of seeds in fruits
increased size of fruits
a significant yield improvement
We worked with Biopolin on some trial acres. Impressed with the results in year one. On apples measured, we saw an increase of 15% in size. Biopolin tankmixed very well for simple application and convenient. Manitree will use Biopolin in 2023 on apples and pears.
