Beet is cultivated worldwide in many countries. The purpose of growing beet as a technical crop (sugar beet) is to obtain sugar; production wastes are feed for farm animals, cooked beetroot is used by humans for food, and fodder beets are used as animal feed. The program of beet growing, in addition to application of the necessary amount of mineral fertilizers, requires the use of micronutrients for foliar application.
Micronutrients fertilizing promotes for great increase of quality and quantity indicators of crops. Lack of any micronutrientin plant feeding leads to development disorders and growth retardation; a plant may not able to form sound regenerative organs, bloom normally and give good crop. The need for micronutrients for this crops group can be expressed by the following examples. Studies show that deficiency of boron and cobalt leads to disruption of root formation. Root cavities disseminated by phytopathogens make the root unusable for any application. Heart rot is usually associated with deficiency of these elements. Deficiency of manganese and copper adversely affect mineral nutrition of plants, nitrogen and water metabolism; the leaf surface is large, but root quality is low, and the roots cannot be stored for long. Iron deficiency is detrimental to processes of synthesis and accumulation of chlorophyll, which affects the intensity of photosynthesis and production of carbohydrates, both assimilated and stored ones.
Use of fertilizers intended for fertilizing beet allows for prevention of various microelementosis diseases and correction of development disorders caused by micronutrient deficiency. It is important to understand the importance of preventive treatments. Beet is an intensively growing plant that develops a large leaf surface, allowing it to be used for effective foliar applications.
• Fast and effective fertilizing with all necessary micronutrients
• High efficiency of fertilizing due to content of chelated micronutrients
• Prevention of development of microelementosis diseases
• Increased resistance to fungal and bacterial diseases
• Activation of immunity and growth processes
• Activation of carbohydrates biosynthesis
• Increased crop yield (+5-17%)
• Increased rate of utilization of mineral fertilizers
• Active growth and development
• Reduced safety interval
• Improved yield quality (color, taste, smell)
• Increased sugar yield
• Reduced betaines content
The fertilizers are intended for foliar application and pre-sowing seed treatment.
