Foliar application of nutrients is an efficient way of avoiding nutrient deficiencies, suppling nutrients when demand is high, and avoiding the fixation of elements in the soil. It also stimulates the growth of crops during cold periods when plant roots are not very active. The nutrient solutions can be adsorbed by the cuticle, cuticular cracks or imperfections and most importantly by the stomata, trichomes and lenticels. Chelated micronutrients are protected from reacting with other elements; they are highly water soluble, and are better distributed within the plant.
Our SUPREMO speciality products are compatible with most plant protection products. Carrying out a test before application is nevertheless recommended.
Fertigation combines irrigation with fertilization by dissolving nutrients in the irrigation water supplied by drip irrigation, micro-sprinklers, capillary tubes, central pivot, or other means of irrigation. Mainly used in horticulture and greenhouses, it is an efficient way to provide a nutrient combination tailored to the crop’s needs.
Fertigation increases the efficiency by:
For use in fertigation systems, our SUPREMO NPK fertilizers are completely water-soluble, are available with different NPK ratios, and contain micronutrients. Each of them is designed for specific needs at different plant development stages. They are ready to use products, making it simple to achieve the correct dosage of each individual nutrient.
