Controlled Release Fertilizer for Blueberry Production What Is Florikan® CRF with Gal-XeONE? Florikan® CRF is a controlled release fertilizer that is made to withstand the hot and humid conditions which occur in the Southeast US. Florikan CRF is activated by moisture and the speed of release is only affected by soil temperature. Florikan CRF is not adversely affected by excess rainfall or irrigation.
Why Use Florikan® CRF with Gal-XeONE For Blueberry Production? Problem: Blueberries have fine, fibrous roots that do not develop root-hairs and cannot adequately absorb nutrition before it is leached. This requires excessive applications of inefficient water soluble fertilizers which may not provide the plant with sufficient nutrition on a daily basis. Solution: FlorIkan® Controlled Release Fertilizer eliminates feast and famine nutrition and ensures a constant supply of nutrients to the plant throughout the crop cycle. Problem: Many CRF blends contain nitrate forms of Nitrogen. Nitrate reductase is an enzyme that is needed to convert nitrate to amino acids and proteins for plant uptake. Blueberries have very limited nitrate reductase activity which means they cannot effectively utilize nitrate forms of N. Excessive nitrate N can also lead to burning of the fine fibrous roots. Solution: With the use of Florikan® Controlled Release Fertilizer with ammonium sulfate and Florikan® Controlled Release Fertilizer with Urea a grower can supply a consistent and appropriate source of needed nitrogen for blueberry production without the fear of causing plant damage. 6801 Energy Court, Suite 100, Sarasota, Florida, 34240 Phone: 800.322.8666 • Fax: 941.377.3633 Web: www.florikan.com GAL-XeONETM is used under license from JR Simplot company
