The aim was to gauge the plants against indoor and outdoor growing conditions.
One aspect of the trial compared the results of different plant feeds on Tomato Sweet Aperitif.
John Burrows, director of ProVeg Seeds attended the event with a Brix meter to test the sweetness levels of each variety. He tested fruits of Sweet Aperitif grown with incredicrop and another market leading fertiliser. Fruits grown with incredicrop registered at 12.4 Brix against a level of 10.1 from those grown with the market leader – a 23 per cent increase in sweetness.
T&M horticultural Director, Paul Hansord, said: "We already know Sweet Aperitif is the sweetest red cherry on the market, the first to consistently score over 10 on the Brix scale. We couldn’t believe the sucrose levels could be boosted even further. The findings add to an already impressive list of benefits for incredicrop, setting it well ahead of other feed options on the market. Brix levels for Sweet Aperitif were unchanged by other feeds. Our exclusive vegetable fertiliser not only encourages stronger and healthier plants with impressive yields – the produce will also taste better."
