Products for Bush Fruit
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 fruit bushes and developing fruits 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.
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.
VerdeNT is a unique nitrogen and calcium formulation combined with Arm U advanced and MAS technologies specifically designed to fruit tree structure to enhance yield and quality. The nitrogen within VerdeNT is in amine form and slow released which for foliar use means its use by bush fruits is very different.
Unlike nitrate nitrogen foliar fertiliser VerdeNT does not stimulate auxin production which promotes longer, weaker internodes and extended growth which diverts calcium away from developing fruits. Bush habit is more compact and stronger to bear more fruit load and ensures continued calcium avilability to build stronger fruit.
MAS-Power Active Frost
Many bush fruit crops flower and set fruit generally through the period when frist event may occur. Frost can be extremely dmamaging to stone fruit buds, flowers and young fruit and can cause damage or even failure in the formation of fruit, seriously effecting yeild potential.
MAS-Power Active Frost is a sophisticated blend of nutrients, amino acids and anti-stress compounds and is proven in three years of trials to reduce the damage frost events directly create in plant issues and managing the stress process to minimise fruit loss.
