ProNiteB

ProNiteB contains 9% Boron (B) and 0.2% Molybdenum (Mo) in liquid form

ProNiteB is a liquid product that is designed to maintain the hormone balance in a crop that uses high levels of nitrogen, to increase fruit, seed and storage tissue uniformity.

During the season it will help reduce excessive vegetative growth. There will sometimes be a noticeable Increase in disease resistance.

Prepare crops for harvest, as a pre-harvest treatment it helps to move the carbohydrates out of the leaves into the roots, the storage tissue, seeds, or fruit.

ProNiteB is a convenient, effective alternative to soluble boron with the added benefit of molybdenum to promote conversion of nitrate nitrogen into more metabolically functional forms.

ProNiteB promotes nitrogen balance in two ways:

Firstly boron enhances nitrogen utilization by improving sugar transport and metabolism, auxin metabolism, and seed and fruit development.

Secondly molybdenum is essential for the initial conversion of nitrate nitrogen into nitrogen forms

that contributes to higher yields rather than vegetable growth. Use plant analysis or petiole monitoring as a guide to plant nitrogen levels and apply ProNiteB to maintain nitrogen levels within recommended limits.

Directions for use – ProNiteB is recommended for seasonal use on the following crops:

Field Crops

Alfalfa: 5 to 10 litres per hectare

Clover: 5 to 7.5 litres per hectare

Maize, cotton, lentils, peanuts, rape, soybeans: 2.5 to 4 litres per hectare

SugarBeets: 5 to 10 litres per hectare

Sunflowers: 4 litres per hectare when plants are 10-20 cm tall. Apply 4 litres/ha a month later.

Use higher rates when excessive growth appears. Under normal conditions, use the lower rates

every 14 days beginning at the initiation of the reproductive stage or flowering stage.

Vegetables and row crops

Beets (red): 4 to 9 litres per hectare

Carrots, turnips, cucurbits, tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, radishes, cucumbers, spinach and melons: @ 2 to 4 litres per hectare

Broccoli: 7 to 11 litres per hectare

Celery, cabbage and cauliflower: @ 2 to 7 litres per hectare

Fruit and Nuts

Almonds, apples, pears, plums: 4 to 9 litres per hectare

Strawberries: 4 to 9 litres per hectare

Apricots: 14 to 19 litres per hectare

Citrus: 2 to 7 litres per hectare

Grapes: 7 to 11 litres per hectare

Walnuts, pecans: 14 to 19 litres per hectare

Use higher rates when excessive growth appears. Under normal conditions, use the lower rates

every 14 days beginning at the initiation of the reproductive stage or flowering stage.

 

CROP PREPARATION FOR HARVEST:

In order to promote sugar movement from leaves to storage tissue, hormones at the growing

point must be reduced. The use of ProNiteB is only important if plants are not naturally senescing before harvest.

Asparagus: Apply 10 litres per hectare to foliage 4 weeks before cutting fern.

Potatoes: Apply 10 litres per hectare to foliage 4 weeks before killing off tops. If vines are not killed, apply 1 week before harvest.

Onion, garlic, carrots: Apply 10 litres per hectare to foliage 4 weeks before harvest.

Sugar Beets: Apply 10 litres per hectare when plants should normally be senescing.

Cotton: Apply 2 applications of 5 litres starting at bloom onset or 10 litres hectare at onset of bloom, if the expectations of high yield are promising.

Sugar Cane: Apply 10 litres per hectare by air 6 weeks before harvest.

Maize: Apply 5 litres per hectare 15-17 days before tasseling.

Soybeans: Apply 5 litres per hectare at bloom before pods appear.

Wheat: Apply 5 litres per hectare at emergence of flag leaf.

Alfalfa: Apply 5 litres per hectare 8 days before cutting.

Oilseed rape: Apply 5 litres per hectare at flowering before pods appear.

Canning Tomatoes: Apply 10 litres per hectare 14 days before harvest.

Apples, Cherries, Peaches: Apply 2.5 litres per hectare 14 days, 7 days, and 4 days before harvest in sufficient water to ensure even coverage.
