Marrone Bio Innovations(MBI) announced that the California Department of Food and Agriculture has approved the use of Haven. In addition, trials in California over the last two years show that Haven applications resulted in significantly higher almond and walnut yields, compared to competing products.

Both almonds and walnuts can suffer yield loss from sun damage. Walnuts are particularly susceptible to sun damage. Sun damage in walnuts darkens and shrivels one side of the shell and kernel1. Sun damaged walnuts result in downgraded status by nut processors and can result in losses of $0.10 to $0.12 per pound for growers (which is the difference between class 1 class 2 in quality)2. Furthermore, if any of the sunburned nuts are rejected rather than downgraded, growers potentially will experience total monetary loss for damaged crops. There are more than 1 million bearing acres of almonds and an estimated 335,000 bearing acres of walnuts3.
The active ingredient in Haven is a food-use approved extract derived from coconuts. Use of Haven helps treated plants maintain lower leaf temperatures and reduces heat stress on the crops, resulting in higher yields and quality.
