A NEW TYPE OF FOLIAR GROWTH PROMOTER SUPPLIED AS AN EASY-TO-USE LIQUID.

How does it work?

Accelerator works by supplying the plant with simple sugars which are readily absorbed by the plant. Applied at an early growth stage when sugar production within the plant is restricted by the amount of photosynthesis and small leaf area, Accelerator supplies extra vital sugars which are used by the plant to accelerate its metabolic processes.

This “kick starts” the plant into earlier activity which is continued through to maturity and results in higher yields.

However, this is not the whole story., Accelerator also contains natural growth hormones known as betaines and cytokinius derived from seaweed extract which is part of Accelerator’s formulation. The action of these substances is well documented and they are widely used as growth promoters throughout agriculture and horticulture. Their effect in Accelerator’s formulation is to boost the plants response to the application of extra sugars.

Having accelerated the plants early activity it is then important to make sure it has enough nutrients to make the necessary extra foliage etc. Therefore we have added a nutrient base of 2%w/w N, 4%w/w P2O5, and 4%w/w K20, 1%Mg and added trace elements to provide a carefully balanced “feed” for the plant at that stage of growth.

And finally to ensure that the benefits of this unique product are fully utilised by the plant, we have added a highly effective wetting agent which ensures that it is fully absorbed into the leaf.

1997 TRIAL RESULTS
Replicated trials were conducted on 5 different sites over a number of varieties and gave on average 11.4% increase of the number of potatoes over a 35mm riddle. This resulted in a 12.28% increase in ware yield. (Results available on request)

1999 TRIAL RESULTS
Potatoes: Site: Driffield, Yorks. 9.14% increase in marketable weight. Source NDSM Ltd.
Red Beet: Site: Epworth, S. Yorks Total sugars increased from 8.02% to 9.39%
Sugar Beet: Site: Epworth, S. Yorks. Total sugars increased from 16.53% to 17.61%
Further trials are being conducted as part of our ongoing trial programme.

TIMING OF APPLICATIONS
Potatoes: Accelerator should be applied approximately 2 weeks after emergence when 90-100% of the plants are 3 to 5 inches high (8-12 cms).
Beet: Accelerator should be applied at ground cover and 10 to 14 days later.

APPLICATION RATE
Potatoes - 25 litres/Ha in 200 litres of water. Packed in 25 litre cans or 210 litre barrels.
Beet – 2 x 20 litres/Ha in 200 litres of water. Packed in 25 litre cans or 210 litre barrels.

COMPATIBILITY
Accelerator is widely compatible with other agrochemicals. However, we strongly advise a “bucket test”, mixing Accelerator and the agrochemical to be used, to test for physical compatibility.

Tank mixing
Two thirds fill the spray tank with water and agitate well then add Accelerator. Top up the spray tank and continue agitating until all of the product is sprayed.

MANUFACTURER
Accelerator is manufactured to strict quality controlled standards by UNITED MOLASSES, STRETTON HOUSE, DERBY ROAD, STRETTON, BURTON ON TRENT DE13 ODW.
(A Division of Tate and Lyle Industries Ltd).
