Bridging the gap
Equipping plants with the framework of essential nutrients they require to sustain themselves is a complex balancing act that requires more than a traditional fertilizer program. Alltech is recognized as a world-leader in chelation technology. The global nutrition range utilizes the inherent complexing nature of amino acids to deliver a balanced source of essential nutrients in a uniquely bioavailable form. This distinctive approach capitalizes on mineral technology to bridge the gap between crop potential and performance, yielding a superior harvest without compromising the environment.
For optimal growth, plants need a diversity of nutrients. Between 40 percent and 60 percent of the increase in crop yields can be attributed to fertilizer usage; a fertility or nutrient management plan is therefore crucial. Liquid foliar nutrient applications produce quick results and are easy to incorporate with traditional spray programs. Results are often seen quickly as nutrients are applied directly to leaves where deficiencies reduce plant appearance and productivity. Rapid absorption by leaves combined with targeted application can provide plants with immediate access to essential nutrients. Natural surfactants influence surface tension on the leaf to allow minerals to be taken up by the plant more efficiently.
