Jet Harvest Solutions has entered an exclusive distribution agreement with Simplot Growers Solutions and Western Ag Improvement for the distribution of its Cherry Armor product. Cherry Armor is organically certified and uses a patented plant extract to strengthen the cherry’s natural ability to defend itself again rain events.

Cherry Armor originated in Europe in 2001 and is annually applied to over 45,000 acres globally. It is now available in North America starting with the 2014 crop season.

Cherry Armor is composed of food-grade materials, and it protects the cherry during its final growth stages, helping to avoid splits – especially during rain events. Cherry Armor also helps increase stem retention which can lead to better storage life. It is suggested that Cherry Armor be applied twice during the season; it is tank mix compatible with most products and can be used with GA sprays for efficient application timing.

According to Jet Harvest Solutions President, Bill Grant, “After seeing the rain damaged 2013 crop, we are excited to offer cherry growers a product which will help reduce rain induced splitting on their cherries. Ultimately this should lead to higher packouts for the grower and the warehouse. Cherry Armor has been very successful in Europe and we feel it is another horticultural tool that will increase the quality of cherries in North America.”

Dennis Bohanon of Simplot states, “Simplot is always looking for products that safely help the growers produce a better piece of fruit. Cherry Armor is a welcomed addition to our long list of products and product innovations that provide growers with cost efficient solutions to specific crop issues.”
