Foliar feeding: The plant absorbs most of the nutrients through the root system, which was created in the process of evolutionfor the uptake of nutrients. Yet during critical phases of growth, such as a deficit, reduced absorption, transportability or stressful conditions, foliar feeding can help to easily overcome the above problems, resulting in higher quality and yields.

The advantages of foliar feeding are as follows:

• easy uptake of trace elements and the treatment of deficit (Zn, Mn, Fe, B, Cu, Mo) which are often not available to the root system or hardly transportable (high soil pH, high OM, sandy soils);
• Triggering of certain enzymatic processes (B – pollination, Zn – phytohormones);
• Feeding during periods of stress, the time when a plant and its root absorb nutrients with difficulty (cold days, the impossibility of adopting P);
• Faster overcoming of stress (amino acid). The intensification of growth (phytohormones, organic acids, saccharides);
• Foliar treatments are usually carried out together with pesticide, which minimizes the costs of the application.

There are several factors that may affect the effectiveness and the maximum positive effect. Overall, foliar feeding is best carried out during the early morning or late evening, at temperatures below 30° C.


Sugar beet has a prominent assimilation of potassium, magnesium and boron, therefore it is necessary to assist plants in initial development stages by applying foliar FitoFert fertilizers. Fertilization effects of FitoFert Bor Max 20 and foliar fertilizers in later treatments include better resistance to disease of sugar beet heart rot and higher digestion rate (approximately 1-1,5%).

Maize is a farming crop which, in vegetative cycle needs a high quantity of nutrients (N, K, P, Mg, Ca, Zn..). Most of the mentioned nutrients will be absorbed by the root from the soil absorbing complex, and therefore it is very important to carry out regular basic fertilization with adequate soil fertilizers during ploughing. Besides basic fertilization, while applying pesticides as protection from weeds, i.e. in the development stage from 4th to 6th set of leaves it is useful to do foliar nutrition with appropriate FitoFert fertilizers.

Soybean is a farming crop from the family of leguminous plants, plants which use their roots to enter into symbiosis with useful microorganisms in the soil. These microorganisms fixate atmospheric nitrogen and transform it into accessible nitrate nitrogen for the cultivated plant. Therefore, it is very important to consider nitrogen quantities in basic soil fertilization before sowing, i.e. to reduce the quantity of the basic fertilizer in soil cultivating, and add all other necessary quantities of nutrients during vegetation through FitoFert foliar fertilizers. Boron has a multiple effect on soybean crops:
it affects root growth, improves nitrogen fixation, stimulates branch spread and flowering, prolongs longevity and fertilization of the flower and increases the number of beans in the pod.

In addition to essential autumn fertilizing and soil nutrition by nitrogen, wheat needs to be also nourished through the leaf during pesticide treatments. First pesticide (herbicide) treatment is most often carried out in early spring, upon beginning of vegetation and initial growth of grass roots. In this perod, nights are cold which means that adequate foliar nutrition triggers metabolic processes, quickens the activity of the root system , enables better tillering and reduces temperature stress.

Sunflower is a plant characterized by very fast growth. For this reason, it is mostly possible to apply only one or two foliar treatments during vegetative stage, at the beginning of vegetation in combination with appropriate herbicides. Since sunflower is grown in places with more sunny days and less precipitation, of key importance is formation of strong and robust root system, which will be able to supply the plant with nutrients.
In addition to the root system, high sunflower yield asks for good pollination, therefore on soils deficient in boron (sandy soils) supplementary nutrition with FitoFert Bor Max 20 is recommended.

Like wheat, rapeseed is sown in autumn, and harvested the following summer. The most important thing at the beginning of vegetative state is good rooting, essential as a deposit of boron, a micronutrient that makes cells more elastic so that they can endure frosts better, and which also plays an important role in pollination. The first treatment should be done in early spring, using both FitoFert Humisuper Plus and FitoFert Bor Max 20 fertilizers.
