Having optimal soil and growing media conditions is essential for strong, active root growth and indeed healthy productive crops. It is very rare to find soils that are perfect for the growing crop and all will differ from year to year depending upon crops grown, nutritional products and agrochemicals applied, mechanical compaction and if irrigated, water factors of salts, pH and mineral load. Growing media is no different and will be more affected by irrigation than soils, so both often require help.
Within the products from Engage, we have developed a range of technologies that are created to directly work in soil and growing media. All will aid growing crops in correcting many of the issues seen in soil and growing media rootzones from optimal water retention, reducing salt load, optimising bioactivity, creation of optimal aerobic conditions, correcting pH and optimising cation exchange capacity (CEC).
A unique water conditioner, acidifier and softener which is low hazard yet highly effective at reducing and stabilising the long-term pH of irrigation and spray tank water to directly affect soil and growing media pH
Reactor is a blend of multiple components, created specifically to be added to water solutions to aid rootzone nutrient availability.
Reactor can also help maximise the performance of foliar applied nutrients and agrochemicals in situations where spray water is not ideal.
Reactor contains a long chain polymer-based water softener, a sequestering agent to isolate cationic contaminants, buffering agents to improve tank mix compatibility, and complexed acidifiers to reduce pH and guard against pesticide hydrolysis.
