Formulation: For the first time a phosphite product includes the unique AMIX humic-lignate complex formulation technology. It is a unique PK plus chelated trace element product. This is a clearly superior product delivering a high concentration of the desirable elements in a very soluble, rapidly absorbed and readily-translocatable form, with phosphorous acid and key micronutrients.
The major benefit of this new technology in VitAMIX is that:
- It delivers enhanced root and seedling development from the high phosphite/phosphonate content.
- It delivers improved seedling disease resistance through the high phosphite/phosphonate content.
- The AMIX formulation provides enhanced uptake at the leaf surface and increased mobility of nutrients within the plant.
- Amix delivers nutrients direct to the phloem so they are actively transported rapidly to the growth forming locations whether they are root, fruit or flower.
- Acidifies spray water, conditioning it and reducing the negative effects associated with alkalinity and hardness.
- Greatly improved speed of leaf uptake at lower pH’s
- Greater compatibility with pesticides
This is a new AMIX humic-lignate complex formulation which utilises highly soluble raw materials without chlorides in a high concentration and very flexible product. It offers all the compatibility and effectiveness benefits of a complexed/chelated product with the instant response and mobility within the plant of a foliar feed solution. This unique formulation also delivers Phosphite ions to reinforce plant health.
Major opportunities exist to improve establishment, root development and improve disease resistance in all crops from seedling emergence and throughout the vegetative stages of growth and into reproductive growth.
VitAMIX can produce a rapid and visible response in cold wet conditions, which will still be measurable as a yield response at harvest time.
Foliar Phosphates have long been recognised as being many times more bio-available than soil applied phosphates, capable of delivering a boost to growth and development as part of the management and agronomy of the crop. Foliar phosphates are particularly effective during the vegetative growth stage of young plants, and will enhance rooting, drought resistance and disease resistance.
To improve seedling establishment, promote root development, reduce disease, correct deficiencies and prevent physiological disorders apply a dose appropriate to the biomass of the target crop.
Typical usage in autumn-sown crops would start with 1.0 L/ha at the 3 leaf stage of cereals or rape in conjunction with anti-virus insecticides. This would be followed by a further 1.5 L/Ha at GS30 or commencement of spring growth.
Rates of use range from 1.0 to 4.0 litres per Hectare as part of a programmed approach from the three Leaf stage of the crop.
The most responsive fruit, vegetable and salad crops on Potash or Phosphate deficient soils WILL benefit most from a programme of low dose applications every 14 to 21 days up until harvest. Always use sufficient water to get good foliar coverage with a sprayer generating a droplet spectrum appropriate to foliar application.
To increase tuber numbers in the commercial potato crop, apply 5 I/Ha at tuber initiation, and in determinate varieties follow this with a further 2.0 I/Ha each 14 days during bulking-up to improve yield and dry matter and help support blight control programmes. Seed crops will benefit most from a single application of up to 7.0 I/Ha at early tuber initiation. Programmed applications have been seen to slow the onset and spread of disease in potatoes.
In peas, beans and linseed, early applications at first flower will help promote resistance to downy mildew.
