The Festival Event
On 9th May 2017 the seventh watermelon picking festival of “New Daxu Village” was held. “New Daxu Village” is in Zhaoling Town, Luohe City, Henan Province and has held a watermelon festival each year
Even though the watermelon treated with a RLF fertiliser program had not yet fully matured it still registered a sugar degree of 12.57. It won the title of ‘Melon King’ and RLF’s speciality crop nutrition foliar fertiliser Fruits & Veggies Plus won the fertiliser first prize at the festival.
With Excellent Results
The photo images that follow show the advantages gained for the crop once treated with an RLF crop nutrition program.
- At the start
The watermelon plants were characterised as lacking strength, with weak seedlings, fewer leaves and not such good growth before commencing the RLF
- At the end
After 16 days using RLF products, the number of leaves increased significantly and the seedling growth became vigorous and healthy.
– the watermelon is growing well
The watermelon treated with the RLF products showed many features over that of other fields that remained untreated.
The advantages included higher yield, larger size of the fruit, shiny rind, earlier ripening and greater sweetness.

The RLF Products Used
RLF has an important and evolving presence in China agriculture.
For many years now it’s technical teams have been demonstrating the benefits of RLF specialty crop nutrition fertilisers with local farming enterprises. The results achieved from the demonstration field and trial of watermelons in New Daxu Village, Luohe City, Henan Province is an exceptionally good one, and the RLF team is proud of this achievement.
Working alongside farmers to create greater value crop outcomes as well as improved financial returns is one of RLF’s important corporate goals. Congratulations to all involved.
