Function of Nitrogen
Nitrogen is the major element required by plants and is a major constituent of proteins, enzymes and amino acids.
Nitrogen is a mobile nutrient in the soil and in some seasons it can be difficult to decide on optimum soil application rates, which must be made prior to the
bulk of the crop uptake. Folex-N allows nitrogen rates to be fine-tuned according to seasonal requirements. Nitrogen deficiency is characterised by overall chlorosis of the older leaves. Nitrogen is particularly mobile within the plant, therefore nitrogen in deficient plants is translocated from the older leaves to the growing point.
Use Folex N when deficiency is diagnosed or suspected, to boost yield, to increase protein in milling wheat, or as part of a nitrogen nutrient management programme on potatoes and other crops.
Apply 25-200 l/ha, in a minimum of 200 l/ha water.
Milling Wheat – For best results apply 200 l/ha Folex N diluted with 100l/ha water.
The spray tank should be filled with half the required water. Measure the required amount of Folex N and add to the tank whilst maintaining constant agitation. Add remaining water to correct dilution and spray.
Do not apply in adverse weather conditions or when crop is under stress.
Nitrogen is probably the most responsive nutrient applied to turf. Best results are usually achieved following regular applications, adjusted for weather and seasonal conditions.
Applying solid nitrogen can be difficult; it leaves a residue on the green that can impair play and accurate application can be difficult.
Folex N is a concentrated liquid nitrogen with a high level of turf safety and feeds the turf through both foliar and root uptake, providing a rapid and long lasting greening response.
The key advantages of Folex N include rapid and accurate application, which is only possible with a sprayer. It leaves no residues on treated surfaces, so no risk of impeding play or being removed. A single sprayer fill is normally all that’s needed to rapidly treat all tees and greens in a clean and effective application. Folex N is also widely used for sports fields and outfield areas.
