Nitrogen is the nutrient that determines the growth and development of the plant and is necessary for the formation of essential compounds. Its supply in optimum amounts allows grains and forage with higher protein content to be obtained, as well as fruits with higher contents in vitamins, sugars and fats.
Energrow is specially formulated to allow the application of nitrogen at times when crops demand it most and to correct deficiencies in this nutrient. Absorption through leaves is more intense than through the roots. Therefore, Energrow nitrogenous fertilizers are ideal for supplying nitrogen quickly or when the crop has difficulty absorbing through the root due to high soil moisture, cold or drought.
The tailor-made formulation permitted by liquid NPK complexes makes it possible to configure the most suitable balances that best suit the needs and characteristics of each soil type.
Glugel fertilizers are specially indicated for immediately and efficiently supplying the nutrients needed during the early stages of development of the crop and strengthens the plant against adverse conditions. There are three main characteristics that differentiate it from the rest of the Glugel range of products:
1. Form of Gel
The structure in the form of gel optimizes the effectiveness of the treatment, since:
2. Micronutrients Chelated
The most efficient solution for correcting deficiencies in trace elements is the use of fertilizers that maintain the correct availability of these nutrients. The application of inorganic salts would not be suitable, apart from zinc and in washed acidic soils, as they would precipitate and would therefore become insoluble.
The most suitable fertilizers are those in which the trace elements are chelated. Chelates are coordination compounds in which one synthetic organic group, usually a polyamino carboxylic acid, is able to surround the metal joining itself to it at various points and isolating it from the soil, so as to impede its precipitation.
3. Free from Chlorine
They are highly suitable for crops that are sensitive to or do not tolerate chlorine as they are free from chloride.
Micronutrients are essential to ensure high yields and optimum crop quality. They are necessary in small amounts and should therefore only be applied when the soil is deficient or when they are in forms that cannot be assimilated by the crops.
The crops are very dependent on a supply of micronutrients due to the implementation of more demanding crop varieties, new growing techniques and, of course, high yields. Therefore, the supply of micronutrients is essential to ensure not just good harvests, but also foods with high nutritional value.
The foliar application of Microfer, a liquid mixture of micronutrients, presents the main advantage of rapid absorption. When it comes to solving deficiencies, it is immediately effective, as the nutrients are applied directly to the leaves instead of being absorbed from the roots. The addition of chelating agents (EDTA) and complexing agents (lignosulphonic acid) reinforces the assimilation of the components, improving the effect of the application.
Microfer is ideal for specific applications, when it is necessary to stimulate the crop after stress or when it is in a specific phase of development in which an additional supply of micronutrients is needed, such as flowering, fruit setting or maturation.
Potassium, considered a quality factor, intervenes by improving photosynthetic activity and increasing the resistance of the plant to droughts and frosts. It ensures the lignin content, favouring the rigidity and structure of the plants.
Potassium fertilization is also very important to increase the efficiency of nitrogen fertilization.The lack of potassium increases the plant’s vulnerability to pathogens and causes a delay in growth. Deficiencies can be detected in the reserve organs and, if they are very intense, spots appear on the leaves.The application of potassium is therefore fundamental in all crops, but especially in horticultural crops, olives and vines. It improves the colour, general appearance, sugar content and quality of the fruit, as well as the fat yield in the case of olive and avocado trees.
With Glufer, the results will be visible quickly, since foliar absorption is faster and more effective
