As nutrient use efficiency becomes ever more critical for growers due to the rising input costs and increasing sustainability pressures, we look at the advantages of using foliar nutrition??
A foliar fertilizer programme can boost nutrient efficiency, without over applying nutrition, whilst also controlling costs.
✅ Foliar fertilizers provide an instantly available form of nutrition, bypassing problems associated with solid base fertilizer, including insufficient nutrition to meet requirements.
✅ This may be due to a drain on a particular macronutrient later in crop development. More generally, it is also because a large proportion of a nutrient is locked up in the soil and therefore unavailable for uptake.
✅ The prompt nutrient mobilization that foliar feeding offers means growers can react in a more immediate corrective manner and apply the precise quantities needed to fulfil the crop’s nutrient requirements.
✅ Using a liquid foliar system can help reduce fertilizer input due to the improved accuracy and better take-up by the crops.
✅ OMEX foliar products are formulated with EBA (Enhanced Bio-Availability) technology to maximize the benefits of every application. The range features growth stage-specific foliar fertilizers, giving growers the option to supplement nutrients to the plant at any point post-germination.
