Each vegetable plant during its growth and development, depending on the growth stage which it is in, has a particular need for nutritional macro (N, P, K), secondary (Ca, Mg, S) and micro (Fe, B, Cu, Mn) elements. These cannot be added during the basic fertilization of soil, but during the growing season, through fertigation and foliar feeding.Learn More
FRUIT FERTILIZING SCHEDULE
Due to high yields, fruit crops demand timely and constant nutrition by adequate fertilizers. Classic soil fertilizers have a leading role in basic nutrition, but supplementary nutrition is an inevitable factor for regular plant growth and development of fruits. By supplementary nutrition, foliar or fertigation, it is possible to fully satisfy the needs of the plants in every phenophase stage and also remove deficiencies in macro, micro or secondary nutrients.Learn More
Foliar nutrition: Plants absorb most feeds through the root system, designed in evolution as the main route for entry of nutrients. Hower, during critical development stages, nutrient deficiency, reduced absorption, transportability or stress conditions, foliar nutrition can help in overcoming these problems, which results in better and higher yields.
Advantages of foliar nutrition are as follows:
• Easy supply of micronutrients and treatment of deficiencies (Zn, Mn, Fe, B, Cu,Mo) which are not often available in the root system or are badly transported (high pH value of soil, high OM, sandy soils).
• Triggering certain enzyme processes (B – pollination, Zn – phytohormones).
• Nutrition by feeds in periods of stress, when plants and roots absorb them with difficulty (cold weather, impossibility of assimilating P).
• Faster overcoming of stress (amino acids). More intensive growth (phytohormones, organic acids, saccharides).
• Foliar treatment is often carried out together with pesticides, which minimizes application costs.
There are several factors that can affect efficiency and maximum positive results. Generally, foliar treatments are best done during early morning or late evening, at temperatures lower than 30ºC.Learn More
