Winter wheat, Micronutrients and Liebig’s Law

Micronutrients are required for optimum crop production and the term micronutrient refers to the relative quantities required for plant growth and does not mean that they are any less important to plants than other nutrients. Wheat growth and development may be retarded if any one of these elements is lacking in the soil or if […]

Mighty Micro’s

Micronutrients act in limited quantities, but play a fundamental role for the biochemical processes of the plant. Their deficiency, which is only recognized in the acute phases, through alterations in the colouring of the leaves and the development of the plant, seriously compromises the yield and the quality of production. The availability of microelements is […]

Brix measurements and its role in plant nutrient management

WHAT IS BRIX? Brix is a measure of the dissolved solids (TDS) of a liquid (in our case plant sap), predominantly the sugar content but also minerals etc. (including amino acids, lipids, and any suspended particles or colloids). Brix is measured on a scale that quantifies the amount of light that is bent (or refracted) […]

Winter Climate Outlook

What is happening this winter? A high probability of above-normal rainfall is expected over most parts of the country for late-autumn to early-winter and mostly below-normal rainfall during mid-winter. However, the rainfall forecast for the winter rainfall region, south and south-western parts of the country indicates a mixed forecast with uncertain rainfall conditions at this […]

The Importance of Novatec® and Duratec® Technology for Post-Harvest Nutrition

Post-harvest (the period after harvest and before leaf senescence) fertilization play an important role in the potential crop of the following season. Replacing minerals is very important as they are transported off-site in the crop. Most of these nutrients can be taken up by the crop during the post-harvest period if they are available. In many tree […]

Use Foliar Fertilizers for Optimal Crop Production

Foliar fertilization is used to ensure optimal crop performance when nutrient supply from the soil is inadequate or uncertain. Foliar fertilizers (foliars) offer specific advantages over soil fertilizers when:  Plant demand for nutrients exceeds the capacity for root nutrient uptake;  Elemental mobility within the plant limits delivery to tissues and  Environmental conditions limit the effectiveness […]
