Foliar Phosphite

Ele-Max Foliar Phosphite products (0-28-26 and 4-30-20) are highly soluble and effectively deliver needed phosphorus and potassium. Potassium is well known for its ability to increase cell wall thickness, creating a physical barrier to prevent pathogen entry and spreading within the plant. Ele-Max Phosphites help promote maximum uptake of phosphorus and potassium for stronger root development and improved tolerance to disease and other stresses.

NUTRITIONALS

CoRoN CoRoN is a unique foliar fertilizer that contains polymethylene urea solution, a controlled-release organic nitrogen source. Its low burn potential, wash-off tolerance, reduced drift and low surface tension make CoRoN a valuable addition to any nutritional program. When CoRoN is applied to foliage, the plant stores the nitrogen and releases it according to the plant’s nutritional needs. CoRoN gives plants a consistent, stable source of nitrogen for weeks, reducing nutrient run-off concerns and helping solve over- or under-application problems. CoRoN was developed to address the following issues with conventional nitrogen fertilization: Leachability: Although very soluble, CoRoN does not leach because amine modified urea formaldehydes have a high affinity to soil organic matter. Solubility: Nutrients must be dissolved in order to be used by plants. CoRoN’s polymethylene ureas are very soluble in water. High solubility means easier handling, mixing and application. Nitrification: Plants utilize ammonium and nitrate nitrogen. CoRoN first goes through a microbial breakdown before it can go through nitrification. This allows for the slower release of nitrogen and reduced leaching. Plant Growing Ability: The ability to grow and maintain healthy growing plants depends upon steady release of mineral nitrogen from the polymethylene urea chains. The lengths of the eight different polymethylene urea chains in CoRoN are designed to release nitrogen up to a maximum duration of 10 weeks depending upon the soil type.

Renova is a foliar-applied biostimulant that contains amino acids and other natural plant compounds. These components are naturally extracted through enzymatic hydrolysis from vegetative matter. No chemicals or high temperatures are used in the extraction process so that the natural compounds are carefully preserved. These extracts help to activate plant growth mechanisms after stressful situations. Research has shown that Renova increases plant production and improved plant growth by activating plant metabolism and supplying readily available nutrients. In fact, Renova has proven especially effective in enabling plants to resume normal growth following a wide range of external stresses, such as nutritional deficiencies, temperature extremes, moisture extremes or damage from hail, chemicals, diseases or insects.
