A message from the team at Nutrifield ®

Improvements The new and improved Nutrifield® nutrients have undergone an extensive three-year research program led by the hard work of Nutrifield®’s Head Scientist, Dr M. Dakakni. But it didn’t just stop at our nutrients – you will find a number of Nutrifield® products have become more concentrated since the 2009 catalogue. These exciting changes will give you the best results you have ever seen. Our research and development has really stepped up over the last three years, and we intend to keep our ever-important customers at the forefront with great products that work time and time again to give you the results that you demand.

Things are changing at Nutrifield® For many years the approach to intensive nutrient programs has been based solely around chemical or periodic element programs. The rules are being redefined, and hydroponics and chemicals alone will no longer give you the optimum results. The science has taken over and the Nutrifield® feeding program has been upgraded to give plants what they require at exactly the correct time. The range has been updated to represent the changes in the industry, and it introduces a number of benefits from both chemical and organic supplements. NF Zyme has taken the Australian market by storm over the last year and we will soon be offering our NF Regulator A&B and new to the market, the innovative NF pot system.

What do you want? For many years our approach has been to talk about what the company has thought is important, but we want to know what our loyal customers believe is important. If you can think of anything you would like to see happen in the new year, let us know by contacting us at www.nutrifield.com.au/contact. Happy gardening!

NF Coco Premium Bags Nutrifield®’s NF Premium Coco is your ultimate organic-based growing medium. The medium is produced from coconut husks following a precise ageing and treatment process. The coco coir consists of 45% cellulose material to ensure longlasting physical properties preventing the media from decomposing or compacting during use.

Nutrifield® Premium Coco is prebuffered to prevent calcium and potassium lock out and stabilises PH. Lock out occurs due to the coco coir having a negatively charged complex that is surrounded primarily by sodium and potassium This becomes an issue when the fertilising begins as the sodium and potassium will be exchanged with calcium and potassium. The consequences would result in a calcium and potassium deficiency for your plants. The problem is solved with Nutrifield® NF Premium Coco. The pre-buffering prevents this occurrence and also stabilises the medium’s pH while reducing the EC reading to less than 1mS/cm.

NF Coco® has superior physical attributes. Plants have complex air-water requirements and due to Nutrifield® NF Premium Coco’s physical attributes it allows for large water absorption while ensuring the essential 30% air porosity is maintained. This facilitates ideal rhizospheric growing conditions which are important to develop strong, healthy plants.

Nutrifield® NF Premium Coco is a clean product that is free from harmful parasites and diseases. Inferior products are enriched with neem, as they do not follow strict manufacturing processes and therefore require neem to control diseases and parasites due to their cheap manufacturing practices. Nutrifield® NF Premium Coco carries the RHP stamp of quality. The RHP Dutch Standard of quality for horticultural substrates ensures a stringently monitored quality homogeneous product that will give you consistent performance. Serious growers rely on the RHP standard as a sign of excellence, as only premium products carry the Dutch seal of approval.

Mediums

Hydro Clay Nutrifield® Hydro Clay is a natural growing medium that contains no harmful or undesirable substances. Hydro Clay is inert – meaning that it has a neutral pH, is resistant to chemicals and will not break down easily. Nutrifield® Hydro Clay undergoes a number of transformations before being a usable growing medium. The process begins with pelletised clay that is fired in a rotary kiln at a very high temperature. During this process the organic compounds in the clay burn off, forcing the pellets to expand and become internally honeycomb-like in structure, while the outside surface of each granule melts and is sintered. The final result is a ceramic-like Nutrifield® Hydro Clay pellet that is lightweight, porous and has a high crushing resistance.

Nutrifield® Hydro Clay helps to prevent oxygen starvation to the plant’s root system. When a plant’s root system is starved of oxygen the plant’s health suffers and growth rates decrease – this can be commonly attributed to over-watering or an overly compacted growing medium. Due to the shape and structure of Nutrifield® Hydro Clay, the oxygen starvation can be prevented by keeping thousands of pathways open for the exchange of gases and drainage of water.

Nutrifield Hydro Clay can also help prevent root rot. ®

Root rot can be prevented due to the increased oxygen levels that the medium promotes. As a result, aerobic bacteria are able to continue to breed and keep anaerobic bacteria at bay. Nutrifield® Hydro Clay may also reduce algae, fungus gnats and unwanted weeds due to the surface of the top of the medium staying dry. NF Hydro Clay can be blended with NF Premium Coco to create an impressive potting mix.

• Natural plant medium • Has a neutral pH

• Resistant to chemicals

• Contains no harmful or undesirable substances • Prevents root rot

Why should I use Nutrients? Macro Nutrients There are sixteen essential nutrients that plants require. Three are directly absorbed from the atmosphere (oxygen, carbon and hydrogen); while the other thirteen essential elements must be absorbed through your plant’s growing medium. The list of thirteen elements is further broken down into three key groups. They are defined as macro, secondary and micro nutrients.

Macro nutrients include nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). These are the key elements required for plants throughout their life cycle. Nitrogen is an essential component of amino acids and, therefore, of proteins which include nucleic acids, enzymes, and the green, lightharvesting pigment, chlorophyll. It is also the nutrient which normally produces the greatest yield response in crop plants (photosynthesis). Phosphorus is an essential part of the enzymes which help the crop to fix light energy. It forms an integral part of nucleic acids, the carriers of genetic information, and is important in stimulating root growth and protein formation. Potassium is involved in processes which ensure carbon assimilation and the transportation of photosynthates throughout the plant for growth and the storage of sugars and proteins. The potassium ion is also important for water regulation and uptake.

Secondary Nutrients The secondary elements are equally as important but are only required in smaller quantities. These include magnesium (Mg), sulphur (S) and calcium (Ca). Magnesium occurs in chlorophyll and is also an activator of enzymes, while sulphur forms part of two essential amino acids which are among the many building blocks of protein. It is also found in vitamin B1 and in several important enzymes. Calcium is required for plant growth, cell division and enlargement. The growth of root and shoot tips and storage organs is also affected by calcium, as it is a component of cell membranes. Calcium is also vital for pollen growth and to prevent leaf fall.

Micro Nutrients Finally, there are micro nutrients and these are equally as important but are only required in minute quantities. These are iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), boron (B), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo) and chlorine (Cl).

Why should I use Additives? Plant nutrient requirements differ throughout their entire life cycle. In each stage there are certain elements and organic compounds that are more important than others. It is essential that the correct proportions of elements are being added at the right time to avoid nutrient deficiencies within your plants. This is extremely important, as deficiencies will impact the size and quality of crops and yields.

Optimise your plant’s yield potential. Broad spectrum nutrients alone will give excellent results, but are unable to be completely balanced for every stage of your plant’s life cycle. For a truly superior result and to maximise your plant’s yield potential, the correct use of additives is extremely important. This is why Nutrifield® offers a number of additives that cater to your plant’s every requirement. All of the Nutrifield® additives are designed to be able to be used in synergy with your base nutrients and other supplements.

Cargo Boost

®

Delivering nutrients to the root zone to optimise yields. Cargo Boost® continuously delivers nutrient to your plant’s root zone for improved growth and larger yields. Cargo Boost® helps to deliver rapid growth and larger yields, as it is made up of small molecules that aids the nutrients ability to chelate. Unlike conventional chelation, the small molecules work in a two-step process. The first step is the creation of nano-clusters through sequestration. This is followed by specific molecules in Cargo Boost® attaching themselves to the sequestered elements like a container of cargo. The molecules then deliver the food to your plant’s root system, where Cargo Boost® pushes the nutrient through the plant’s outer cell wall, before returning to the nutrient pool to begin the process again.

• Delivers nutrients directly to plant’s roots

Cargo Boost® also stabilises your systems pH from large fluctuations to maximise nutrient uptake.

• Pushes nutrient through outer cell walls • Stabilises pH

Additives

Fulife

®

Fulife® maximises your yields by optimising your plant’s metabolic processes. It is derived from organic carbon allowing your plants to grow faster due to improved photosynthesis.

Fulife® conditions soils and will aid more stomata openings. More stomata openings will allow for better plant respiration and transpiration, while helping the growth of beneficial micro-organisms.

Fulife® does not increase the salt index of your system. There is little effect on osmotic potential (salt build up), allowing the plants water uptake to remain unaffected. ® Fulife enables you to run significantly lower electrical conductivity (EC) without effecting nutrient absorption.

Fulife® is an organic electrolyte. Electrolytes are soluble particles that can effectively conduct an electrical current in liquid and plant substrates. The electrical activity serves to convert silica and metallic elements into easily absorbable plant food, while increasing the nutrient chelating speed. Plants respond by being able to take up previously unavailable elements leading to nutritionally satisfied, healthy plants. For exceptional results use in conjunction with Oxygen Supplement (Bioxy®) and Defence System (Tri Boost®).

pH up and pH down are tank controllers that will adjust your solution to the desired pH. pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14. pH 7.0 is considered neutral and is based on pure water. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are considered acidic, while those above 7 are considered basic (alkaline). pH affects nutrient uptake for most plants. The optimum pH range for plants is from 5.8 to 6.5.

Introducing our Smart Garden Range ™

The Smart Garden™ range is the product of excellent results and feedback from horticultural and agricultural customers. From all the encouragement we have received, we thought that it would be a natural progression to offer these products on the domestic retail market. The Smart Garden™ product range consists of micro-organisms and liquid additives/fertilisers. The liquid additives and fertilisers are mainly adapted to soil applications but in some cases maybe used in soil-less applications, while the micro-organisms should be used in all conditions.

What are Micro-organisms? Beneficial micro-organisms are one of the most influential discoveries in modern science. Although they are not all completely understood, Nutrifield® has been able to source a number of revolutionary products that are well documented and provide superior bio-dynamic solutions. Beneficial micro-organisms are natural organisms that are already living in our soils. Generally, they are not available at the appropriate levels to produce the desired outcomes or are damaged due to poor crop management. It is essential to understand that the interactions between plant and micro-organisms will promote strong healthy roots, vigorous growth, reduce fruit drop, optimise yield, promote nutrient uptake and ward off negative bacteria that affect your plant’s vitality. Micro-organisms have long been a missing link in soil-less crop production mainly due to the fact that these interactions that occur naturally in soil were not understood for so long. ® Now the answer is here with the BFA certified organic Smart Garden range by Nutrifield .

Growth Burst has the highest metabolic rate of any organism. Once applied, the product has the ability to directly fix nitrogen aerobically onto the plant’s surface. The micro-organisms have uniquely high respiration rates that allows nitrogenase (normally oxygen-sensitive) to experience limited oxygen exposure, preventing any sudden stress. Once fixed to the plants surface, the microorganisms convert the nitrogen into ammonia through the process of nitrogen fixation, after which the ammonia is turned into proteins. This provides your plants with an extreme, vigorous growth boost. Results in improved flower quality, reduced fruit drop and significantly larger yields.

Oxygen Supplement is your beneficial microorganism that systematically converts enzymes into a natural source of hydrogen peroxide. The conversion can be contributed to action of the glucose oxidase present within the microorganism. In simpler terms, the reaction that occurs releases the hydrogen from the enzyme, and then oxides to produce hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide acts as a steriliser or system cleaner. The advantage of this form of hydrogen peroxide over that of synthetic versions is that it won’t harm any of your beneficial bacteria or fine root hairs. Therefore, providing for a healthier plant. As the hydrogen peroxide is a non-synthetic source (and highly volatile), it is easily broken down into a free atom of oxygen. Essentially Oxygen Supplement provides a boost of oxygen to help stimulate your beneficial micro-organisms and improve breeding rates.
