Top products for Apples and Pears
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.
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.
Additional applications for reducing susceptibility to disease and insect pests.
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 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.
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.
