The RLF Sales Manager in charge of Hebei Province, Zhang Xiaoke, visited the farmer Song Aimin’s peach orchard in Xinzhai Town, Leting County, Tangshan City, Hebei Province in May 2017

Overview

The RLF Sales Manager in charge of Hebei Province, Zhang Xiaoke, visited the farmer Song Aimin’s peach orchard in Xinzhai Town, Leting County, Tangshan City, Hebei Province in May 2017 to discover the secrets of his high yield and high value peaches. His peaches consistently sell for a considerably higher price.

The Secret of Success

During the peach maturation period, and after bag-removing, (some three days before harvest), apply a foliar spray of 50ml RLF Potassium Plus mixed with 30 jin (15 litres) of water.

After application, all the peaches are uniformly coloured with bright peach-red colour.

This ensures that each shed sells for significantly more than the fruit in the Control shed. Moreover, the colour is gorgeous, and the taste is delicious.

The Excellent Price Advantage

According to peach buyers, the peaches treated with RLF Potassium Plus had excellent features such as good shape, bright colour, easy packaging and transportation capabilities, and delicious taste.

The purchasing price was 8.5 yuan per jin (AU$1.67 kg) during the orchard cleaning period for the RLF-treated produce, with Control peaches being 7.9 yuan per jin (AU$1.56 kg). Generally speaking this is about 2,700 jin (1,350kg) per shed. So, compared with the Control price, each shed of peaches treated with Potassium Plus achieved an additional 1620 yuan (AU$319).

The farmers were very satisfied with RLF Potassium Plus.
