With the adverse climate this summer and extended periods of dry and hot weather, damage to crops and deficiencies in essential nutrition was becoming apparent across many farms in the UK. With this in mind, Ilex EnviroSciences were able to react quickly, producing a brand new product to combat the effects of Nitrogen deficiency in a range of crops.
Plus Hy-N is an advanced, high-analysis Nitrogen formulation with three forms of fast and slow release Nitrogen, boosting root development and stress resistance.
Why fast and slow? Well, fast release Nitrogen is formulated to quickly alleviate the effects of Nitrogen deficiency and slow to provide nutrition over an extended period.
Plus Hy-N is now available either direct from Ilex EnviroSciences or through our buyer groups. For more information on Plus Hy-N or any other of our products, please see www.ilex-envirosciences.com
PK MAXX+ combines phosphorus in both the phosphate and phosphite forms to provide rapid and efficient delivery of phosphorus at critical growth periods, boosting root development and stimulating healthy growth.
In addition, the multi-nutrient package includes beneficial levels of Magnesium and Sulphur together with essential trace elements Manganese, Zinc, Copper, Boron, Iron and Molybdenum to meet a broad range of nutritional demand and ensure optimal nutrient status is maintained even under stressful growing conditions.
Precision nutrition using PK MAXX+ has proven to be a valuable tool for influencing tuber numbers, size and uniformity but timing is key to getting maximum benefit from application. Potato specialist Andy Burton takes you through the points to remember. (more…)
We have seen some excellent results in our 2016 potato field trials. Trials undertaken by growers in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire on four varieties: Markies, Maris Piper, Sagitta and Divaa have shown yield increases averaging 20% with the use of multi-nutrient phosphite PK MAXX+.
Come and see us at LAMMA 17 in Hall 7. We will be launching a new phosphite-based nutrient for sugar beet and revealing the latest PK MAXX+ potato field trial results. You can also claim BASIS CPD knowledge trail points with our crop nutrition quiz.
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.
