With the unusually dry weather this February there have been many reports of cereal crops struggling to extract Zinc from the soil, especially in high pH areas.
The unique combination of essential Manganese and Zinc our new Mn-Zn Plus product, is specifically developed for such a situation. A blend of highly concentrated Manganese and Zinc packaged as a fast-acting foliar solution that is even effective at very low application rates.This will play a key role as a catalyst in many enzyme functions and encourages root interaction with beneficial soil microbes and fungi, improving nutrient uptake and ultimately promoting strong and healthy plant growth from early crop stages through to harvest.

Whatever the weather has to offer this autumn, with improved rooting, winter cereals will be better equipped to access the nutrients and water required for healthy establishment and winter survival. (more…)
Providing cereal crops with an early boost to root development will improve nutrient uptake, speed up establishment and promote healthy even growth. (more…)
The role of Potassium in metabolic processes such as protein synthesis and the movement of sugars within the plant is now well understood and recognised as crucial for maximising quality and yield. But it is now known Potassium also plays a significant role in helping crops resist disease and environmental stresses during winter dormancy and ensuring optimum supplies of Potassium to see crops through the winter months should not be overlooked.
With manganese being the most commonly deficient trace element in UK soils and potentially impacting on the development, health, quality and yield of arable and vegetable crops, countering deficiencies is a necessity for many farms. John Bird from F D Bird & Sons, tells us how switching to a lower volume product has brought efficiencies in both time and cost.
The most important component in achieving an effective and efficient spray solution will always be the water source, so in hard water areas, using a good quality water conditioner is essential to prevent chemical breakdown and maximise herbicide performance.
