Tree Fruit

Pome Fruits

This important category of fruits includes apple and pear species which require regular support to ensure strong flowers, fruit set and fruit development which results in consistently high numbers of good sized, high quality fruit which are clean from damage from pests and diseases and will store for long periods, if needed.

As the fruit are on the trees for up to seven months, nutritional support needs to be season long to cover from fruit bud swell through to flower initiation period; even post harvest, to replenish the trees for the next season ahead and to build consistency in yield bearing.

An important crop sector for Engage, we have developed an advanced programme of products to provide full nutrient support. The products below are key to success in this crop sector.

MAS-Power Active Frost

Pome fruits flower and set fruit generally through the period which is called ‘late frost’ period. Frost can be extremely damaging to bud, flowers and young fruit and can cause damage or even failure of the formation of fruit, seriously effecting yield 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.

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 fruit trees and developing fruit 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.

MAS-Power Foliars

MAS-Power Foliars’ are unique nutrient formulations, containing both trace elements and Engage’s MA technology designed to rapidly address specific nutrient requirements and stresses during critical the critical growth stages of growth. MAS-Power Foliars’ maximise foliar nutrient uptake and assimilation to allow application rates to be lower yet just as effective. MAS technology also improves the metabolism of the tree and will promote overall tree health and vigour. Each element within the MAS-Power Foliar range has a support pack designed to aid penetration, distribution and assimilation to ensure nutrient efficacy is always at its highest.

Bio-Chel Fe

Bio-Chel Fe Liquid (5%Fe) is an advanced micronutrient solution, organically chelated, to provide an highly effective iron for both root and foliar application. Using Bio-Chel chelation, the ratio of soluble lignin to iron in Bio-Chel Fe Liquid has been optimised to ensure full stability and availability over a pH range of 2-9.

Unlike other chelated irons, Bio-Chel Fe Liquid contains natural surface active polymers. This ensures even iron distribution over the leaf surface without the need for additional adjuvants. Another advantage to this is that the soluble Iron component remains hygroscopic. This helps keep the iron water soluble so that it can diffuse and penetrate into the leaf even after the spray application has dried.


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 fruit tree growth and yield.

Cypher is designed to condition soils which have become compacted, overloaded in bonded salts or have a higher than optimal pH. Regular use of Cypher will help maintain aggregate stability, optimal pH and active soil microflora and will de-bond ‘locked up’ nutrients such as calcium and phosphorus to ensure fruit trees can uptake important elements at higher levels.

Additional applications for reducing susceptibility to disease and insect pests.

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 fruit tree growth, tree health and reduce yield loss through stress factors.

With programmed application, Fortify Cu will aid vascular flow, support root growth and maximise copper transport within the tree. Fortify Cu will support and maintain established yield and limit susceptibility to pome fruit disease infections such as fruit tree canker.

Fortify XD

Fortify XD in an advanced crop biofortification technology which uses the polymeric chelation of selected trace elements and specific organic acids. XD reinforces cellular processes to strengthen cell integrity which ‘limits susceptibility’ to damage from abiotic and biotic stress.

Fortify XD chelates the element within its formula in such a way that they are made available to create compounds which plant cells can use to maintain strong cellular health to reduce the production of damaging compounds normally created during stress. Regular application on Pome crops is proven to reduce susceptibility to damage from fruit disease infections such as fruit scab.


Sentinel is a 10% 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 fruit trees will accept and its affects are highly beneficial to both the tree and developing fruit.

Once applied, Sentinel is used by the trees 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.


VerdeNT is a unique nitrogen and calcium formulation combined with Arm U advanced, seaweed and MAS technologies specifically designed to fruit tree structure to enhance yield and quality. The nitrogen within VerdeNT is ‘locked’ in amine form and slow released which for foliar use means its use by citrus is very different.

Unlike nitrate nitrogen foliar fertiliser, VerdeNT does not stimulate auxin production which promotes longer, weaker internodes and diverts calcium away from developing fruits. Growth habit with VerdeNT is more compact and stronger and removes the requirement for growth regulators and ensures continued calcium availability to build stronger fruit.
