Function of Zinc
Zinc is involved in the formation and activation of hormones that regulate root development, water uptake, flowering and fruit set. In addition, Zinc plays a major role in the structure and function of the integumentary system, affecting skin elasticity, wound healing and disease suppression.
Function of Copper
Copper is involved in photosynthesis and the binding of cells that support plant structure, affecting stem strength and the development of new shoot and root tissue. Copper is also involved in the activation of a number of enzyme systems related to protein, carbohydrate and nitrogen metabolism. In addition, Copper forms part of the phenolic compounds used by plants to suppress infection.
Directions for Use
Use Zynergy when deficiency is diagnosed or as a regular maintenance treatment in conjunction with crop protection programmes during periods of rapid growth and fruit, grain or root formation.
Foliar uptake will be enhanced by the addition of NA13¹ unless in tank mix with a pesticide.
Apply at 0.5 – 1l/ha, in a minimum of 200l/ha water.
The spray tank should be filled with half the required water. If applicable, add the required amount of NA13 to the water before the Zynergy. After shaking the container, measure the required amount of Zynergy and add to the tank whilst maintaining constant agitation. Add remaining water to correct dilution and spray.
|Brassicas Lettuce and Leafy Salads
||From 2-4 true leaves
||Repeat at 1 - 4 week intervals if necessary
|Carrots, parsnips or other root crops
||From 3-4 leaves
||Repeat after 10-14 days
||End of tillering - GS30 Repeat at GS31
||Tank mix with T0 and T1 fungicides
||Repeat at 10 - 14 day intervals
||From tuber initiation
||Repeat at 7 - 10 day intervals in tank mix with blight fungicides
||Repeat as necessary
Do not apply when the crop is under severe stress, or in adverse weather conditions.
Zynergy is readily compatible with most herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and foliar nutrients. For further information on compatibility and tank mixing refer to the web site www.omex.co.uk
¹ NA13 is an adjuvant designed to improve adhesion, deposition and penetration of the spray solution on the leaf surface. NA13 should be added at 0.1% of the spray volume, e.g. 100 ml in 100 litres of water.
Maintain agitation and apply immediately after mixing.
Zynergy is a unique complex of copper and zinc. This specially formulated combination of highly available copper and zinc is designed to form a key part of an integrated crop management programme to boost crop health and maximise yield potential.
For more details on timing and rate of use, please refer to the Technical Information for Horticulture.
Zynergy can be used on a wide range of crops including soft and top fruit, protected edibles, lettuce & leafy salads, and ornamentals.
