Asparagus

Asparagus should be grown on soils that are not compacted, have good drainage, and hold moisture well. Soil pH should be between 6.5 and 7.0. Asparagus is extremely susceptible to Fusarium root rot, the disease is caused by a fungus that will weaken the plant and reduce the crops yield.

Generally considered trouble free regarding pests, although in recent years greater populations of asparagus beetle are being found where adults and larvae feed on the stems and foliage of asparagus during the summer months. Engage has over a decade of experience in asparagus 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.

Top products for Asparagus

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.

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.

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 cereal growth and yield. Cypher is designed to condition soils which have become compacted or overloaded in bonded salts. Regular use of Cypher will help maintain good aggregate stability, strong biomass and active soil microflora and will be-bond ‘locked up’ nutrients like calcium phosphorus and sulphur to ensure potatoes can uptake these important elements at higher levels.

Bio-Chel Ca

The worlds most concentrated calcium chelate, Bio-Chel Ca 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 contains natural surface active compounds which breakdown surface tension of water allowing even distribution across the spear surface removing the need for adjuvants in sprays where Bio-Chel Ca is used.

VerdeNT

VerdeNT is a unique nitrogen and calcium formulation combined with Arm U advanced and MAS technologies specifically designed to manage crop structure to enhance yield and quality. The nitrogen within VerdeNT is slow released by the Arm U advanced technology which for foliar use means the nitrogen is absorbed as amine which makes its use by asparagus very different.

Unlike nitrate nitrogen foliar fertiliser VerdeNT does not stimulate auxin production which promotes longer, weaker internodes and diverts calcium away from developing stems. Growth is more compact and stronger, calcium is used more efficiently to enhance fern strength, stem thickness and higher quality spears.

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 all cereals. 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.
