Vegetables group is one of the widest among all the plant groups cultivated in the world. Despite the fact that this group is represented by species of different families, the result of their cultivation is production of vegetables used for human consumption, either directly of cooked, or as food for farm animals. The program of vegetables growing, in addition to application of the necessary amount of mineral fertilizers, requires the use of micronutrients for foliar application or pre-sowing seed treatment.
Micronutrients fertilizing promotes for great increase of quality and quantity indicators of crops. Lack of any micronutrient in 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 molybdenum deficiency leads to a cauliflower disease called whiptail: diseased plants are stunted and do not form heads at all. Carrots with deficiency of boron and cobalt suffer from heart rot, often forming small and irregularly shaped roots. The root crops yield is reduced by 10-27%, storage waste increases by 20-25%. Deficit of boron and zinc leads to disruption of growth and development of solanaceous crops (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants); blooming intensity decreases, flowers and ovaries develop poorly. Onions and garlic react to manganese and copper deficiency with poor storability; they are often affected by wet rot, especially with excessive nitrogen nutrition.
Use of fertilizers intended for fertilizing vegetables 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.
• 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 of seedlings
• Reduced safety interval
• Improved yield quality (color, taste, smell)
The fertilizers are intended for foliar application and pre-sowing seed treatment.
