TO ENHANCE THE NATURAL ABILITY OF PLANTS TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY GROWTH

The basic nutrient needs of plants are to provide for growth, reproductive development and the maintenance of crop health. During periods of rapid, active growth or stress the demand for energy in all parts of the plant depends on the rapid translocation of phosphorus and other nutrients.

The new FastPhite formulations combine the benefits of phosphite based fertilisers with specific nutrients to enhance the performance of particular crops.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHOSPHATE AND PHOSPHITE

Phosphorus in foliar fertilisers is in the form of phosphates (PO4)3-, in FastPhite the phosphorus is in the form of phosphite (PO3)3-. FastPhite Phosphorus is more mobile leading to more rapid uptake by leaves, fast translocation across cell membranes and as a result the P moves rapidly from the treated leaves to the roots and vice versa.

The importance of this characteristic is immense. Metabolic phosphorus is used by the plant to carry energy to the sites of bio-chemical reactions involved in the basic needs of the plant. The quicker the phosphorus metabolite reaches the point of need, the faster the response, whether the need is for growth, reproductive development or the maintenance of crop health.

FastPhite applied at critical stages of growth or under conditions of physiological stress, caused by adverse weather conditions, nutrient deficiencies or disease pressure, delivers remarkable results in terms of crop performance, crop nutrient health and high quality.

BENEFITS ON RELATED CROPS:

  • Increased plant and root development.
  • Better yields and quality of arable crops, fruit and vegetables.
  • Improved plant nutrient health.

FASTPHITE APPLICATION RATES AND TIMING:

FastPhite Complete:

For general purposes apply FastPhite Complete at 2.5 to 5l/Ha in 200l/Ha of water prior to the onset of adverse conditions caused by physiological stress.

For cereals: Apply 2.5l/Ha at growth stage 30/32 in 200l/Ha of water. Repeat application after 14 days.

For beets and vegetables: Apply 2.5l/Ha at 4 to 8 leaf stage in 200l/Ha of water. Repeat application before leaves meet across the rows.

For fruit: Apply 5l/Ha in 500l/Ha of water to the foliage pre-flowering.

In May/June continue foliar nutrition with sequential sprays every 7 to 10 days with 2.5l/Ha FastPhite Complete or Nutrifast 14:7:7 as part of an integrated crop management programme.

Post-harvest: Apply 2.5l/Ha FastPhite Complete to the foliage tank mixed with 2.5kg/Ha appropriate Nu-Trel product for extra K, Ca, Mg and/or Trace.

Water rates can be increased from 500 to 1000l/Ha depending on crop density. The rates for fruit are expressed as field hectares.

FastPhite Pulses:

For peas and beans: Apply 2.5l/Ha in 200l/Ha of water as soon as ground cover is established in Spring. Repeat application every 14 days or as often as necessary.

FastPhite Potatoes:

For potatoes: Apply 5l/Ha at tuber initiation in 200l/Ha of water. Repeat application with second blight spray.

FastPhite High K:

For areas low in K, high in Mg and post-harvest on fruit or where no N is needed. Apply at 2.5 to 5l/Ha in 200 to 1000l/Ha of water depending on crop, growth stage and nutrient demand. Repeat application after 14 days.
