Oilseed Rape

For OSR a crucial stage of the development is root establishment in order to maintain a good canopy cover before winter sets in. A major pest at this early stage is flea beetle and cabbage stem beetle which can have devastating consequences to the crop.

Extensive trials the secondary and trace elements of greatest importance are magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc. Even on soils that contain good quantities of these nutrients, plants can still show deficiencies and this may be due to a number of factors such as rapid growth, biotic and abiotic pressure.
These type of deficiencies may not appear to last very long, but can cause harm to the plant during critical growth phases with serious potential of limiting yield. In these situations foliar applications of the appropriate nutrients may be required in order to avoid the potentially negative impacts.

Top products for Oilseed Rape

Fortify Cu

Fortify Cu (7-16-0+1.5% Cu) is a unique formulation of nitrogen phosphorus, copper and halide ions which complement each other to support plant growth, support crop health and reduce yield loss. With programmed application Fortify Cu will aid vascular flow, support root growth, maintain established yield and reduce susceptibility to cereal disease infection.

MAS-Power Mn

MAS-Power Mn is a unique formulation designed for use as a premium foliar manganese combined with Engage mineral assimilation system (MAS). Manganese is involved in photosynthesis and change of leaf colour is often the first visual symptom of deficiency. Manganese deficiency seriously impairs crop growth, quality and yield. high soil pH reduces the availability of manganese and a low soil pH will increase the availability of manganese even to the point of toxicity. High applications or soils with high levels of iron can reduce manganese uptake.

MAS-Power Mg

MAS-Power Mg is a unique magnesium formulation combined with Engage MAS mineral assimilation system. This advanced formulation maximises the penetration, distribution and assimilation of magnesium by the plant.

The MAS technology also aids plant health and reinforces crop stress tolerance. Magnesium also enhances nutrient uptake and increases iron utilisation. Soils with a low pH have reduced magnesium availability whereas higher pH soils have increased availability of magnesium. Soils with high levels of calcium and potassium can also reduce the accessible, magnesium to the plant.

Bio-Chel Ca

The worlds most concentrated calcium chelate is completely organically formulated from a sustainable, renewable resource and is 100% pure available calcium.
Being 100% calcium and organic means its acceptance by plants could not be higher so application efficacy is ensured. Also due to the strong organic chelation of Bio-Chel Ca is non-reactive making is ideal for application within all nutrient and foliar plant protection products.
Bio-Chel also contains natural surface active compounds which breakdown surface tension of water allowing even distribution across the leaf surface removing the need for adjuvants in sprays where Bio-Chel Ca is used.

Sion

Over the past 50 years the increased use of inorganic fertilisers has massively reduced soil biology to the point where the need for silicon nutrition was established. Plants only take up one specific form of silicon which is silicic acid so Engage developed the use of a new form of stabilised silicic acid and this is Sion.

At 21% Silicon, Sion is highest available liquid  silicon in the world and delivers silicon at such high levels its use rate is only required 0.25-1.0L per hectare. In OSR using Sion during periods of peak demand will support the optimal growth of that stage of development plus Sion is proven to strengthen plant tissues to reduce susceptibility to any stress.

Sentinel

Sentinel is a 10% targeted foliar Silicon is based upon the delivery of mono-silicic and salicylic acid to the crop. This is the only form of silicon plants will accept and its affects are highly beneficial to all cereals. Once applied it is stored by the plants help to build resilient cells which act as a physical barrier for the crop to help reduce both susceptibility to disease infection and predation from insect pests.

Cypher

Cypher is a modified organic acid blend derived from plant active portions of lignin and leonhardite ore. It comprises of 100% organic acids which unlock nutrient potential for increased potato growth and yield.  Cypher is designed to condition soils which have become compacted or overloaded in bonded salts.

Regular use of Cypher will help maintain good aggregate stability, strong biomass and active soil microflora and will be-bond ‘locked up’ nutrients like calcium and phosphorus to ensure potatoes can uptake important elements at higher levels
