Increased produce quality

Goëmar BM86 treated Apple, cv. Gala Must/ Jonagold Decosta/ Golden Delicious grown in optimal conditions in an orchard had a bigger average size of apples, a higher number of marketable apples, an increased flowering quality and time and an increased vegetative growth compared to the untreated control.  In Gala Must cultivars, preparations diminished red color and decreased firmness and soluble solids content whereas in Jonagold Decosta cultivars, preparations increased red coloring as well as firmness and soluble solids content, especially after storage, although increasing rotting inclination.
