Protected Crops

Fruiting Vegetables

Fruiting vegetables is a huge fruit market sector comprising of many crops from tomato and peppers species, to aubergine (egg plant), cucumbers and other curcurbits such as melons, courgettes, pumpkins, squashes and gourds. Grown across the world in all climates in both protected and outdoor cultivation, nutrtional requirments are varied.

Engage is focused on fruiting vegetables in many parts of the world and so focus on key technologies to support these important crops to optimise fruit quality and yield, reducing agrochemcial inputs and supporting crop health.

Products for Fruiting Vegetables

Aqualatus

Aqualatus (also known as Integrate) is the leading soil surfactant formulation of four soil applied liquid polymers with outstanding qualities to benefit soils across the world so save water and optimise fruit tree nutrition. Its formula, unique to Engage, supports the maximum distribution of root applied nutrients to aid root functions and nutrient uptake. Most importantly regular use of Aqualatus remove water runoff, suface evaporation and will slow the natural gravitational movement of water and nutrients including nitrates. These amazing qualities reduce the overall requirement of water and nutrients for soil grown crops.

Proven in over 10 years of independent trials and commercial sales across the world, Aqualtus water and nutrient reduction has be been consistently 40-50% whilst maintaining optimal crop development, yield and quality.

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 tree health and reduce yield loss. With programmed application, Fortify Cu will aid vascular flow, support root growth, maximise copper transport within the tree. Fortify Cu will support and maintain established yield and limit susceptibility to fruiting vegetable disease infections such as stem canker, wilts and root rots.

Bio-Chel Ca

One of the worlds most concentrated calcium chelate liquids, Bio-Chel Ca 10% CaO) is organically formulated from a sustainable, renewable resource and is 100% available calcium. Being pure calcium and organically chelated means calcium acceptance by fruiting vegetables could not be higher, so efficacy is assured.

The strong organic chelation within Bio-Chel Ca is important as it makes the product non-reactive and therefore ideal for application within all nutrient and foliar plant protection sprays. Used regularly Bio-Chel Ca will optimise bud growth, flowering and fruit set and will deliver optimal levels of calcium to developing apples to ensure longer storage potential and no calcium related disorders.

Sion

The overuse of inorganic fertilisers and pesticides has massively reduced soil biology to the point where the need for silicon nutrition has been established. Plants only take up one specific form of silicon which is silicic acid. To address this Engage developed 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 fruiting vegetables using Sion regularly will support the optimal growth to strengthen all plant tissues to reduce susceptibility to any stress and reduce susceptability from pathogen infection, espcially powdery mildew and reduce damage from insect predation. Most importantly it works in conjunction with calcium to ensure fruit flesh is dense and the skins develop optimal firmness.

Fortify Maxx

The latest edition to the Fortify Platform, Engage launch Fortify Maxx for 2023 and introduces a brand new technology, Phenophites.

Fortify Maxx is a package of three chelated micronutrients and unique to Engage, plant extracts called ‘Phenophites’ taken from specific plant species naturally attuned to withstanding higher levels of abiotic and biotic stress. Used via irrigation or foliarly applied, the nutritional/phenophite package works in combination to increase the natural production of phenolic compounds from secondary pathways to significantly limit a plants susceptibility to stress of any kind.

Unlike inorganic secondary pathway stimulants, Fortify Maxx does not create a residue as all the formulation is used by the growing crop.

Sentinel

Sentinel is a 10% Si, advanced foliar Silicon is based upon the delivery of mono-silicic and salicylic acid to fruit tree tissues. Silicic acid is the only form of silicon fruitng vegetables will accept and its affects are highly beneficial to both the plant and developing fruit.

Once applied, Sentinel is used by the plant to support superior growth and helps to build strong resilient cells which act as a physical barrier for the crop to reduce both susceptibility to damage from 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 berry plant growth and yield. Cypher is designed to condition soils and substrate which have become compacted, overloaded in bonded salts or have a higher than optimal pH. Regular use of Cypher will help maintain good rootzone stability, optimal pH and active rootzone microflora and will bebond ‘locked up’ nutrients to reduce rootzone EC without the requirement to flush nutrient out.
