Carrots & Parsnips

For many years Engage has been at the forefront of soil and substrate management as across the world and we have seen that over time, biodiversity in soils is steadily dropping at an alarming rate. Reduced biodiversity drop, we know, is due to lower levels of organic matter, humates and organic acids. This leads to lower available silicates and organic compounds for crops and soil micro-flora/fauna to interact with, to create a dynamic soil ecosystem.

Reduced soil biodiversity is resulting in less productive soils and substrates which yield lower crop potential, poorer quality and less nutritious produce which in turn can result in health consequences for humans and animals. Add to this increased input costs from required supplementary nutrition and higher pesticide requirement for stressed crops and we see a system in need of help.
With a steadily increasing world population and greater demand for cereals, vegetable and fruits as diets change across the world, Engage are focused on a soil and substrate development programme designed to replenish soils by redressing what has been lost over time to support increase crop strength, quality, yielding more nutritious produce.

The following products highlight key technologies from the programme.

Top products for Carrots & Parsnips

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 carrot and parsnip 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 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

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 lettuce very different.

Unlike nitrate nitrogen foliar fertiliser VerdeNT does not stimulate auxin production which promotes softer growth and diverts calcium away from developing heads. Growth is more compact and stronger, calcium is used more efficiently to enhance leaf and head strength, leaf thickness and higher quality growth.

Brix-Builder

An organic crop support aid ideal for use on root crops especially during root expansion and maturation. Brix-Builder is a combination of naturally occurring bio-stimulant materials designed to aid specific stages of crop growth. It is rich in alginates, organic chelating agents, natural plant sugars, amino acids, polypeptides, vitamins and naturally occurring cytokinins. It will maximise any growth process by adding and stimulating carbohydrate production and mobility.

Brix-Builder in carrots and parsnips will increase sugar levels and taproot size if applied during the expansion period and will aid growth during periods of poor weather. Later applications during fruit maturation will increase brix levels leading up to harvest.
