PLANT NU­TRI­TION

NZ Grower - - CEO -

Fol­low­ing an ex­tremely wet au­tumn and win­ter in many ar­eas, we are see­ing soil nu­tri­ents at lower than nor­mal level, par­tic­u­larly ni­tro­gen and sul­phate.

The wet con­di­tions have also de­pleted lev­els of trace ele­ments, par­tic­u­larly boron, iron and molyb­de­num. The Bal­lance Yaramila fer­til­izer range avail­able through Farm­lands, pro­vides all ma­jor nu­tri­ents, along with some trace ele­ments and is ideal for high value hor­ti­cul­tural crops. They are suit­able for a va­ri­ety of uses in­clud­ing be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter sow­ing. These prod­ucts are also free flow­ing and easy to han­dle and spread. A range of sol­u­ble prod­ucts are also avail­able to cor­rect trace el­e­ment de­fi­cien­cies.

One ex­am­ple is Grochem Trace-it To­tal, a com­plete mi­cronu­tri­ent prod­uct for the pre­ven­tion and cor­rec­tion of trace el­e­ment de­fi­cien­cies, which can be ap­plied as a fo­liar spray or through fer­ti­ga­tion.

The Camp­bells Trace-it range cov­ers in­di­vid­ual trace el­e­ment re­quire­ments, where de­fi­cien­cies are known from past ex­pe­ri­ence, or are iden­ti­fied by a fo­liar anal­y­sis through a di­ag­nos­tic lab­o­ra­tory such as Hill Lab­o­ra­to­ries. Ad­vice re­gard­ing the se­lect­ing of leaves for anal­y­sis and also the dis­patch to Hill Lab­o­ra­to­ries, can be pro­vided by Farm­lands.
