Simply toss a sachet (packet) of Hazel 100 into the bin or box of produce. Requiring no additional training, equipment, or infrastructure, Hazel 100 is the simplest way to effectively treat your crop with 1-MCP.
Delayed Aging Technology
Smart MAP technology.
How It Works
Hazel 100 comes in two sizes and over 15 crop-specific formulations.
Once "applied" or tossed into the box or bin of the harvested crop, Hazel 100 immediately beings emitting a controlled, slow release of 1-MCP gas, which continuously blocks the emission and absorption of ethylene receptors on the surface of your produce.
Through the simple application of Hazel 100, crops stay fresh, maintain firmness, and retain color for +40% longer - all while remaining EPA residue exempt.
We are looking forward to our second Black Mission season when we will use the new sachet from Hazel Technologies. Our own testing with figs has shown that it has slowed ripening and led to a longer shelf life. We are excited to roll this out and hopefully make a difference for us and our customers.
We are always evaluating potential cutting-edge technologies that will allow us to continue to further elevate the consumer experience of the products we grow,” said Jon McClarty, General Manager at HMC Farms. “Our research with UC Davis and Hazel Tech is a testament to our commitment to innovation.
Frequently Asked Questions
How soon after harvest should I be applying the Hazel 100?
As soon after picking as possible. After the fruit is picked, its "shelf life clock" begins to tick. The sooner you apply Hazel 100, the least amount of ethylene will be released or absorbed.
Do you offer samples?
Yes, we do. But first, we'd need to learn a bit more about your specific needs and supply chain. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page, we'll talk, and send some out to you.
Does one Hazel 100 sachet work for every kind of crop/commodity?
No. Each crop has a different sensitivity to 1-MCP and requires its own, specific dosage amount of Hazel. If you grow a variety of crops and are interested in how Hazel can treat one, some or all of them. Reach out and we can talk through a customized strategy.
Is Hazel 100 an alternative to "fogging" treatments?
Yes. While the end result is the same, the process and use cases are different. Unlike traditional "fogging" treatments which require a sealed room to be effective, Hazel 100 is more versatile and can be execute successful treatments in almost any storage environment.
How much does Hazel 100 cost per unit?
It depends. Hazel uses a volume-based pricing model. Reach out for more information.
