Allium Crops

In a competitive market achieving optimal quality of field-grown Alliums is the key to success. Whether it is to maximise weight and uniformity or to support the important processes which underpin crop health, or limit the damage from harmful, growth restricting stresses.

Timing nutrients and ensuring there is optimal supply through key growth processes will ensure Allium crops are supported through periods of peak demand and during periods of elevated stress, whether it be abiotic pressure through adverse growing conditions or biotic pressure from pests or pathogens.

Engage has over a decade of experience in Allium nutrition across the world and has developed a number of innovative products aimed at targeting key periods to keep crops healthy, so growth is of the highest quality.

This highlights products that will aid growers in growing quality Alliums, maximising a plants genetic potential and circumventing loss through stress to ultimately assist in uniform growth, optimising quality and minimising wastage.

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 disease infection. 

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.

MAS-Power B+Mo

MAS-Power B+Mo is a balanced formulation, which maximises boron nutrient use efficiency. A proprietary formulation which breaks away from traditional, single element products, and provides a complete support package required by the plant. Provides a superior boron delivery system which addresses plant health and abiotic stresses as well as maximising the yield potential of the crop.

Improves the quality of the spray tank environment resulting in good chemical compatibility and improved availability of select products. Contains molybdenum which is commonly associated with boron.

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 allium crops. 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.

MAS-Power KS

MAS-Power KS is a unique potassium and sulphur formulation designed for use as a premium foliar nutrient spray combined with Engage’s MAS anti stress, assimilation system. This advanced formulation maximises efficacy of the formulation by aiding the penetration, distribution and assimilation of the potassium and sulphur by the plant. MAS also aids plant health and reinforces crop stress tolerance.

Limax

LimaX is a unique blend of silicon nutrient and concentrated plant extracts. This was created for foliar application to support the growth and health of crops and render them less palatable to slugs and snails. In allium crops, bulbs and young plants can be predated by field slugs. LimaX increases tissue strength and changes the chemical signals to the slugs/snail that the crops are not what they like to eat, dramatically reducing predation levels.

Aqualatus

Aqualatus (also known as Integrate) is a unique soil surfactant with outstanding qualities to benefit soil nutrition. Its formula, unique to Engage, makes it essential for the maximum distribution of root applied nutrients to aid root functions and nutrient uptake. Most importantly regular use of Aqualatus will slow the natural gravitational movement of water and nutrients including nitrates. so will reduce the overall requirement for soil grown crops. In trials this level has been proven to be up to 50% without any loss of crop development, yield and quality.
